K2G219 Day 8.
After leaving Zanda Tallinn, continue on the road G219, the highest altitude in the world. On this day, we saw the gods of Mount Rinpoche, the holy lake of Malang and the ghostly Laantou.
At a height of 4,500 meters, it is difficult to find a specific word to describe the discomfort and discomfort of the body.
However, there are still people in the north and the south who are eager to see, and the unique charm of Tibet is calling us.
From Shiquanhe Town, the capital of Ali, to Pulan County, you will pass the Shenshan Gangrenboqi and the holy lake Mabiano. On the day, the weather is not good, the clouds are too thick, you can't see the true meaning of the mountain, only see the holy lake. The vast, quiet and clear Mabian Gyatso means the undefeated Jasper Lake in Tibetan language. It is the highest freshwater lake in the world. The lake is 4588 meters above sea level and the birthplace of the four major rivers in Asia. . As early as the Tang Dynasty, it was described by Gao Song Xuanzang in his book "Da Tang Xi Yu Ji" as "Xi Tian Yao Chi", and Buddhist believers regarded it as the "world center" of the Holy Land. Mabian is not only considered by the Tibetans to be a holy lake, but also the oldest and most sacred place in Hinduism and all the holy places of the religion. The blue lake reflects the mountains in the distance, quiet and magnificent.
The Koka Temple in Puland County is a famous ancient temple in Tibetan Buddhism. It was built in 996 AD and has a long history. Although it is located in Ali, it is shared by the believers of Tibet, India and Nepal because of its special geographical location. Believe and respect. The size of the temple building is not large. Although there are only two Buddhist temples with L-shaped distribution, they are close to the beautiful Peacock River, surrounded by mountains and waters, surrounded by snow-capped mountains. The northern part is the Gangdese Mountains and the south is bounded by the Himalayas. It is a veritable temple surrounded by snow-capped mountains.
From Zha Dapu, you need to return to the Balbest Station first, then continue eastbound along G219, then transfer to the 207 Provincial Highway, passing through the holy lake Malang and the ghost lake Laon.
Langang, known as Ghost Lake, Tibetan means "poisonous black lake", located in Pulan County, Ali, at an altitude of 4,574 meters, separated from the holy lake of fresh water, is a brackish water lake, so its lakes and animals are Can not drink, so there is a "ghost lake."
Ghost Lake Laangso is a close neighbor of the holy lake. The scenery is equally beautiful. The lake is also blue and fascinating, but it is deceptively labeled as Ghost Lake. In fact, the holy lake of Ghost Lake was originally a lake. Later, the debris contained in the glaciers accumulated in the middle of the original Great Lake after the glaciers melted, causing the lake bed to rise. After that, global warming, evaporation increased the glacial shrinkage, the amount of recharge water decreased, and the lake area shrank. The lake's water level dropped, and finally it was divided into the current holy lake and ghost lake.
Take the Ghost Lake for three consecutive days. The scenery of the Ghost Lake is different in different weather. The lake is dark blue when the weather is fine. When you are lucky, you can see the Mount Kinabalu.
Walk the lake, the cold wind rushes to the surface, and the sound of the waves is touching.
Plano is a place surrounded by snow-capped mountains in the Ali region. The climate is mild and the precipitation is quite abundant. At the same time, because the altitude of Puland is relatively low (3,900 meters), it is quite comfortable in the Ali area. The feeling of the entire county is very clean and green. Taking this into account, I deliberately stayed in Pran for two nights, on the one hand to ease the fatigue of the journey, on the one hand to alleviate the high discomfort.
From Puland County, all the way to the east about 10 kilometers to the Temple of Koka. The Koka Temple is a large temple in Puland County. It was built in 996 yuan and has a long history. It is famous in the local area. Every year, there are Belgian, Muir and other counties in the Ali area and Nepalese, Indian, and Bhutanese worshippers.
Koca means "settling" in Tibetan. The Koka village where the Koka Temple is located is built around the temple. The villagers say that it is a pre-existing temple and a village behind it. The Koka Temple sits south to the north, surrounded by snow-capped mountains in the north and south, with the Gangdese Mountains as the barrier in the north and the Himalayas in the south. It is a veritable temple surrounded by snow-capped mountains.
The whole temple is full of temples, and the size of the hall is opposite to the white tower. The most distinctive ones are the relatively intact murals preserved here. There are nearly a thousand years of history. Some of the temple's porches are decorated with exquisite wood carvings. The carving style and content are quite similar to those of neighboring India and Nepal. This is the other temples in Tibet. Absolutely not.
This is a desolate land. There are no beautiful villages, no rich red land, only good lamas, and quietly waiting for this land.
This is a magical land, beautiful night sky, white snow mountains, which constitute the most beautiful label here. And those innocent smiles will make life unforgettable.
Gang Rinpoche, a world-class religious monument, stands in the territory of Ali, Tibet. The Indus, Ganges and Yarlung Zangbo rivers originate here and have a profound impact on the whole of South Asia.
Gang Rinpoqi and Mabian are wrong, and they are called "the source of thousands of mountains, the source of water."
Every year, believers from India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibetan areas come here to worship.
In Tibet, the biggest wish of a Buddhist life is to go to the Gang Rinpoche pilgrimage. They believe that: turning around the hills of Gang Rinpoche can wash away the sins of life; turn ten laps to avoid the suffering of hell in 500 rounds; those who turn 100 laps can ascend to heaven.
The birth of the Tibetan calendar in Sakyamuni is a lap of the horse, which can increase the merits of a 12-fold round, equivalent to 13 rounds of the year.
The best month to turn to the mountain: August-September, October is also OK, but it is already a bit cold.
Winter can't turn the mountain, it will seal the mountain.
Turning Mountain Tickets: 150RMB/person;
Frontier Defence Certificate: Covering the seal, entering Ali must be handled, at the local police station, or after arriving in Lhasa.
Outer ring to mountain route
The entire outer ring route is 52 kilometers from the mountain pass, and 56 kilometers from the town of Taqin.
The starting point of the mountain (Yamaguchi) and the destination have sightseeing vehicles, which are 4 km away from the mountain road (4 km from the beginning and 4 km from the end), and the one-way is 60RMB/person.
Mabian Gyatso, Namtso and Yamdrok are the three holy lakes in Tibet. The Tibetan language means the undefeated Jasper Lake. It is a holy lake identified by many religions in the world and one of the most prestigious lakes in Asia and the whole world.
The legendary Mabian Gyatso is the nectar of Shengle, and the holy water can cleanse the troubles and obstacles in the human mind. Therefore, the followers who have come to the lake all the year round have continued.
1, the best time to turn to the lake, July to October each year is the best time to travel in the Ali area, and the best time to turn to the lake. Ali's annual average temperature is 19 °C, the area is more than 5,000 meters above sea level, the temperature difference between day and night is very large, the summer daytime temperature is above 10 degrees Celsius, and at night it falls below zero degrees Celsius. The lake must bring enough clothing to keep warm.
2, there is no rule as to where to start turning to the lake, as long as you complete a closed circle clockwise. Because of the convenient transportation, most people start from the Wuwu Temple in the northwest corner of the holy lake. If it is only a trip, starting from the Wu Temple, it is also a good idea to go to the Hall counterclockwise through the Chugu Temple and the Color Hot Dragon Temple.
3, the small village at the foot of Jiwu Temple is the only place to go to the Pulan Highway. There are several unnamed hotels operated by Tibetans, and the accommodation costs 20 yuan per person. It is said that there is no electricity, and water needs to go to the water tank.
Between the peaks of the Gangdese Mountains, Gang Rinpoche ranks second in height, but it is full of the spirit of the king and is considered by many religions to be the center of the world. The turn-around mountain road around Gang Rinpoche is more than 50 kilometers long, and the highest altitude climbs to the frozen land of 5,600 meters. Overlooking Mabian Gyatso, overlooking the Muna Niu Peak, two days walk can complete the whole journey. Huge canyons, cold snow peaks, thin air, epic grandeur, and the mind and body of the Pacers.
