From Dege to Changdu, it passes through Gangtuo Town, Ganzi County. This is a small town surrounded by mountains and accompanied by the Jinsha River. The terrain is very complicated, and the road to G317 is getting more and more difficult.
After Gangtuo Tunnel, the Jinsha River Bridge in Gangtuo Town is in front. This bridge is an arched bridge with a very distinctive appearance. As the boundary between Sichuan and Tibet, a huge blue and white "Tibet Main Gate Welcomes You" painted sign is erected in the direction from Sichuan.
The Gang Tuo Bridge was made of concrete, and it has been built more than 50 years ago. It is still the same as it has been. It has undertaken the heavy task of crossing the Jinsha River by people and vehicles in the past. It must be considered a huge project at that time.
The blue Jinsha River is super beautiful, and the bridge is also beautiful. The original ecology is worth experiencing
The bridge is the new bridge of the Jinsha River Bridge, very magnificent
After two days of Mercedes-Benz, the convoy finally arrived at Gangtuo Bridge in Jiangda County, Changdu, Tibet on the morning of October 12. This bridge with a length of only 159 meters and a width of about 7 meters is the boundary bridge between Sichuan and Tibet. It was opened to traffic in October, and after crossing this bridge, you officially entered the Tibet Autonomous Region. Still nostalgic for the gorgeous scenery on National Highway 317, I accepted the warm welcome and warm reception from the local government leaders and the people here: bright smiling faces, white khatas, sincere blessings, and ready The fruits and potatoes are washed away all the way. The meaning of travel is not only in the scenery, but also in the different people you meet. In addition, Jiangda is also a memorable revolutionary place. The Eighteenth Army Ferry of the Jinsha River was here. After decades of wind and rain, it still retains the historical scenes of the year and the achievements of the ancestors. Jiangda was also the first stop to liberate Tibet. Here you can also feel the intangible cultural heritage with local characteristics, wood carvings and Iwabi handicrafts, etc., which is eye-opening.
