When you arrive in Qamdo, Tibet, you must come to Yanjing to take a look at the thousand-year-old salt field. Compared with the natural scenery of Tibet, here has witnessed a period of development history of Tibet. The ancient salt fields are very distinctive and beautiful.
The ancient salt field of Mangkang Salt Well has a history of 1300 years. It is located on the east and west banks of the Lancang River in Yanjing Town, Mangkang County, Tibet. It is the only place in my country that maintains the intact and original hand-dried salt method.
The salt well belongs to Mangkang County. It is the first stop of the "Ancient Tea Horse Road" in Tibet. The altitude is about 3,000 meters, and it is close to the Lancang River. The township is surrounded by high mountains of more than 4,000 meters on both sides.
The brine on both sides of the river is rich and springs out like natural springs. People build up the rocks and fix the water at the springs to form a well salt, and then carry the brine to the low level of the river, and also surround the field and let the sun steam. When the water is exhausted, there will be coarse salt, and then the coarse salt will be returned. The flat houses were further dried and taken care of. This is roughly the ancient method of making salt.
The tourist facilities in the scenic area are poor and lack planning and development. It can only be said to contribute to the construction of Tibet.
Qamdo Salt Well Salt Field is the largest salt-producing land in Tibet, and it can be traced back more than 1,000 years ago. The salt fields of dozens of square meters form the spectacular salt pond terraces. It is in sharp contrast with the surrounding emerald mountains. This is also one of the important bases for our domestic salt, and it is a place that reflects the labor wisdom of the Tibetan people. It is definitely worth seeing.
A special magical trip. There is a thousand-year-old salt well in Tibet. So far, salt is made by indigenous methods. With the Lancang River as the boundary, red and white salt is magically produced. Without this place, it is really impossible to imagine the magical wisdom of traditional folk workers.
