Yunnan small people take photos of the holy land | do not fly to Turkey, Shangri-La also has a Chinese version of "Pamutel"!

It should be known to many people that there is a Pamukkale in Turkey. This has always been my longing for, but few people know that there is also a very similar Pamukkale in China. Deep in the mountains of Shangri-La, 103 km from Shangri-La County, the cascade of hills and rocks, covered with a thick layer of snow in winter, is no different from cotton candy, compared with the Turkish cotton castle. Not inferior, wearing a beautiful dress to take a few photos here can really make people feel happy.

Photo Raiders: Come here to make a beautiful photo, you must choose the right time, because the mountains are all around, the morning may be a big backlight, there may be no light in the afternoon, it is speculated that it may be more suitable at noon. The time, I want to see the pure blue and white Pamukkale must be influenced by the weather light, but it can also be redesigned later. It is very difficult for the mobile party to cultivate this feeling, so be sure to bring a photo session to compose the picture. With the friends of the late skills macx! Haha ~

self-driving tour Raiders: We are driving from Lijiang early in the morning, about five hours away, the whole process is mountain road, some road sections are very poor, we must pay attention to safety, but the most beautiful scenery in the mountains The highest point.

wearing a suggestion: I have been entangled for a long time before it is white or red, and finally the girlfriends wear white, I wear red, I personally recommend wearing big red clothes, the contrast is particularly strong, especially have a feeling.
