About Ganzizhou

Garzê is located in western Sichuan Province on the southeast of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It is populated primarily by Tibetan people. The prefectural seat of Dartsedo (or Kangding) has been an important location for the tea and horse trade between the Han and Tibetan peoples since the Song dynasty (960-1279). The prefecture's Dêgê County is known as one of the three major centers of ancient culture, along with Lhasa, Tibet and Xiahe, Gannan. It is one of the important cradles of Tibetan culture. Garzê has many tourist attractions, including the Hailuogou Glacier Forest Park in Luding County, and Paoma (“Running Horse”) Mountain and Mugecuo Lake in Dartsedo. There is also the famous Luding Chain Bridge, which was designated as an important cultural site for preservation after the Liberation and had a revolutionary relic exhibition hall built to display historical materials related to the fight of the Red Army.

Located in the southern part of Daocheng County in Ganzi Prefecture, it is mainly composed of three mountains, Xiannairi, Yangmaiyong, and Xianuoduoji, as well as surrounding rivers, lakes, and alpine meadows. There are not only magnificent and sacred snow-capped mountains in the scenic area, but also vast meadows, colorful forests, and blue crystal clear lakes. Hiking on foot like the local Tibetans is a better way to experience the scenery in Yading. However, due to the high altitude of the Aden Protected Area, the entire walk still requires considerable physical fitness.

Trip Moments

How to shoot the most beautiful in Seda? These places and photography guides are shared with you! , a sacred place. is a gem in the hearts of every photographer. It is a piece of jade, and it is also a place where countless photographers are eager to explore and explore. [Best location] 1 On the highest slope of the Buddhist College, it is also the most magnificent place. Arriving at the Mandala, I was fortunate enough to stand on a high point overlooking the valley. There are people who are long-headed everywhere, and there are people who are turning around. Also go through it! Turn on 108 laps for the one hundred and eight heroes that have emerged and are about to appear in your life. 1 shooting skills: If you want to take portrait photos, a stable tripod is a must. The angle between the position and the hall and the sun is about 100 degrees. Sidelight shooting can better shape light and shadow. The whole hall is shining brightly under the light of the morning sun. The houses around it are like the stars holding the moon, and the effect of the blur is better. 2 The southernmost hillside of the Buddhist College From the Larong Hotel to the hillside is about 2 kilometers round and round, and friends who drive by themselves can drive directly to this hillside. For many photographers, this is also a must. Personally, I really like the night view here. It is very memorable and very beautiful to take a commemorative photo here. Whether it is a Buddhist college or a celestial burial, it will strongly impact your senses. Maybe in the future and to blend in with the complex tastes, you have to rush on the road, but everything you see here will make you take a long time to recollect. The Buddhist College is gradually being dismantled, and it is late, and it may have changed.
