About Kangding

The tune "Kangding Love Song" is sung about Kangding in both the north and south of China. Kangding is located in the eastern part of the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. This historic, high-plateau ancient city is the capital of the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Built across both banks of the river, this ancient city is full of ethnic style. The ethnic minorities from here are known for their song and dance. This area is also very rich in high-plateau ethnic customs. The coexistence of majestic glaciers and forests is one of Kangding's unique landscapes. This attracts many tourists—both Chinese and foreign—to stay here.

YIYI NOTES   
Sichuan West Traveling Kangding Mugecuo Raiders is located in Kangding Love Song (Mugecuo) Scenic Area , Wangla Village, Yala Township, Kangding City, Ganzi Prefecture, Sichuan Province: Private cars can only go to the entrance of the scenic spot. To visit the scenic spot, you need to buy tickets and sightseeing tickets at the ticket office. There are 4 parking spots in , Mugecuo, Hongshitan, Omato, and Seven Seas. From the entrance of the scenic spot to the end of the Mugecuo drive for about 40 minutes, no stop in the middle, the whole journey is Panshan Highway. 1 The first point is Mugecuo, the core scenic spot. Mugecuo can be visited by boat. It is very beautiful on sunny days. However, the fog that day I went to, I stayed in Mugecuo for a short time. 2 The second point is Red Rock Beach. As the name implies, there are a lot of red stones. The photo is really super nice. It is recommended to walk from Red Rock Beach to Omato, and it will take about half an hour to walk. The scenery on the road is also very beautiful, full of eyes. 3 The water of Otto is green and transparent, very beautiful. 4The seven-sea sea should be more beautiful when it is autumn, and it will be reflected when the water is calm. : About half a day is enough. Tickets 105 yuan / person, sightseeing car 90 yuan / person, insurance 5 yuan / person, add up is still relatively expensive. Transportation: From Chengdu to Kangding, it has already been connected to the expressway, and it can be reached in more than three hours. The road conditions from Kangding to Mugecuo are not very good. The journey takes about 1.5 hours. SUVs are recommended, and traffic jams are easy in the peak season. accommodation: There is no hotel around the Mugecuo Scenic Area. It is recommended to live in Kangding City, which is very selective. I live in a hotel, the price is good. Food: To Kangding, you must eat yak meat soup pot and wild mushrooms. It is strongly recommended that the Gongjiao fish yak miscellaneous soup pot near Kangding bus station, this time you can eat the best beef in Sichuan, and return to Chengdu. I have been missing.
