Riyue Mountain is to buy tickets, adult 40 yuan, personally feel that the scenic spots on the mountain is not very necessary to enter, the Japanese pavilions and moon pavilions in the scenic area are antique buildings, not monuments. In the scenic area, there are also services such as riding yak, hiding clothes and taking photos, all of which need to be paid separately, and some buy souvenirs, but the price is not affordable. Riyue Mountain has always been the throat of the mainland to Tibet. It was once the boundary between the Tang Dynasty and Tubo. According to legend, Emperor Taizong made Princess Wencheng marry Tubo to quell the war and accompany Bao Jing. When he arrived at Riyue Mountain, Princess Wencheng threw out the mirror and landed on two hills. The half of the east side faces the west, reflecting the afterglow of the setting sun. The half of the west side faces the east, according to the rising moon. Riyue Mountain is named after this. Today, two pavilions, the Japanese Pavilion and the Moon Pavilion, were built on the Sun and Moon Hill to commemorate this magical legend. This is the Japanese pavilion. It is said that Princess Wencheng passed by this place. Colorful prayers can be seen everywhere. The reason why it is called the scriptures is because these plaques are printed with Buddhist scriptures. In the eyes of those who believe in Tibetan Buddhism, the prayers that dance with the wind are swaying once, and they are constantly conveying to God. People's wishes, pray for the blessing of God.
