JJ77Zhayana in the evening is really beautiful! In the afternoon, standing on the fairy beach to Zhayan, the sunset from the mountains and the original village, the distance is not said to be cloud or fog pervading the mountains, the brain will not feel a Tang poem: the mountains layers of peach and plum blossoms, the fireworks between the clouds is home.

E29***70Stunning monastery. it’s worth it to do the English guided tour with a monk, which is included in the ticket price. Just be aware that you will be asked a lot of philosophical questions such as “what is the truth?” 🤣

山在穷游The recent steppes of Gannan are also one of the most beautiful ones. More people are looking forward to seeing a natural steppe after a temple faith. Sanke steppe is the representative of many steppes. We only need to leave Labrang Temple 10 kilometers away, can enter the heart of the Sanke grassland, there is endless grassland, and there are cattle and horses living on the grassland. Especially in late June, early July and even mid-July, when the grassland is full of one after another small flowers, you will find the whole grassland is so flexible and beautiful. So I named it Gannan nearest grassland, one of the most beautiful grasslands.

滇国剑客Very well, in the Yeliguan National Forest Park of Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, under the big tone of forest cover, many wild fruits and flowers, also in this natural environment, found the growth "opportunity".

山在穷游Recently, another family went to Gannan trip, he went to me where the most worth to see, I introduced him to the traditional Zhalong there is Langmu Temple, there is a focus on the introduction, on this line will be many people overlooked Bohai Lake. There are many features of Chinese lakes, and the biggest feature of Bohai Lake, I think is primitive. Because there is no overexploitation, there is no too much fame, just a lake, standing here quietly, some people will compare it with Huahai Lake. I would say it's more cost-effective than the latter, and of course it all depends on a good weather.

E29***70Hired a driver through Nirvana Hotel to take us to the grasslands. We hiked through a spectacular canyon, which was made even better due to the fact it wasn’t typical chinese concrete paths but an actual dirt pathway!

Gannan Travel Tips

About Gannan

Gannan is both a holy place for Tibetan Buddhism and a paradise for backpackers. Gannan is not an abbreviation meaning Southern Gansu, but rather an administrative district—the Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture—located in the southwestern part of Gansu Province. Compared with Lijiang, Fenghuang, and even Lhasa, Gannan is a place that truly showcases the real, authentic Tibetan vibrancy, as well as an area better suited to experience the Tibetan people's enthusiastic singing and hospitality. Gannan was also an important part of both the Silk Road and the Tangfan Trail.
