ta-iconbased on 46 reviews
"🔸Sangke Grassland is located in Xiahe, Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province, 18 kilometers southwest of Labrang Monastery in Xiahe County. Sangke grassland is a meadow grassland with an average elevation of over 3000 meters and a grassland area of 70 square kilometers. It is one of the main animal husbandry bases of Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. It has a small population and a large area, with only more than 4,000 herders. However, the grassland is vast and it is an extremely valuable natural tourist attraction. 🔸July-September is the peak tourist season. You can eat, live and play in the grassland. There are special Tibetan flavors such as milk tea, tsampa, Tibetan bags, and hand-caught lamb. There are also grassland tourism programs such as horses, yaks, shooting, and bonfire parties. Visitors can enjoy the mysterious and simple Tibetan customs here. 🚗We went during the National Day. There are golden grasslands on both sides of the road, so you can watch the grassland scenery along the way. The G316 national highway is about 50km in the Sangke grassland section. There are scenery along the way. There are private cars on the side of the road from time to time, and there should be good scenery. You can park and take pictures, and walk and play along the way. ⚠️tips: On the Sangke grassland section, unlike other highways in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, there are many viewing platform parking lots. When there are no temporary parking spots on the roadside, you should stop by one side in turn and pay attention to safety. You can walk and play while visiting Sangke Grassland, so don't drive too fast, so that you can stop and play when you see nice scenery. Sangke Grassland is close to Labrang Monastery and can be used as an incidental sightseeing spot for Labrang Monastery."

"📓Gahai Lake is also called Gahaizecha Nature Reserve. It is located in Gahai Township, Luqu County, Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province. It is 3,500 meters above sea level. It is located at the intersection of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Loess Plateau and Longnan Mountain, and it crosses the Yellow River and Yangtze River. The two major river systems are also one of the birthplaces of the Tao River, the largest tributary of the Yellow River, and the birthplace of the Bailong River in the Yangtze River system. 📓In 1998, the State Council approved the establishment of a national nature reserve. It is a rare wildlife nature reserve that integrates the three functions of forest and wildlife, plateau wetland, and plateau meadow. 💗tips: From June 2020, Gahai will charge 5 yuan for parking within the free admission range of attractions in Gannan Prefecture. The plank road in the scenic area can originally be walked around, which may be due to settlement. A small part of the plank road near the lake is below the water surface and cannot be passed through. Pay attention to safety."

Reopens 1 April (Local time)
"📓Zuoergai Lake is in the middle of the largest grassland in Sichuan-the Reer Dam Grassland. The Reer Dam Grassland is the second largest grassland in the country, second only to the Hulunbuir Grassland. It is the flattest wetland grassland in China and the largest black grassland in the country. Neck Crane Reserve, with an altitude of 3468 meters. There are three adjacent Haizis on the Ger Dam, the smallest is called Cuorgan, the largest is Cuoreha, and Huahu is the middle one. 👣The visitor center and the scenic spot are on both sides of the highway. From the visitor center to the entrance of the scenic spot, you need to walk a section of road and then cross the overpass of the national highway to check the ticket. The one-way sightseeing car is about 4.5km, and then travel along the plank road, the tour route is simple. 🌸We went during the National Day. Although there are no flowers this season, the grass and yellow leaves on the flower lake are also very beautiful, and occasionally a few black-necked cranes are seen far away. 📷Huahu does not have a viewing platform with a higher viewing angle, so the viewing angle for taking pictures is flat. Probably it is required for nature protection, and drones cannot be flown here, so the photos taken are all visually similar, and you can also take some close-ups. 📋tips🔸 The most suitable season to go to Ruoergai Flower Lake is from May to July each year, with plenty of sunshine, pure water color, and the lakeside is full of flowers, such as entering a fairyland; July to August is the rainy season, and the viewing is discounted; 9~ Look at the red leaves and yellow grass in October, which is better than a flower paving. 🔸 Ruoergai Flower Lake tickets are 75 yuan/person, scenic round-trip sightseeing car 30 yuan/person (mandatory), insurance 5 yuan/person (voluntary), and the play time is about two hours. 🔸 Ruoergai Flower Lake is located at the junction of Sichuan and Gansu. Generally, visiting Ruoergai Flower Lake will be accompanied by nearby attractions, such as Zhagana and Langmusi in Gansu, and the first bend of the Yellow River in Sichuan."

"Niba Village is a famous Tibetan village in Zhuoni County. Most of the villagers live in the mountains. They are mostly wooden houses. When you look around, they are stacked on top of each other, and the village faces south. The Tao River tributary Cheba River is in the village. Zhong Wei Yi flows. The original half-agricultural and half-pastoral lifestyle is still preserved here. The residents of the village work at sunrise and rest at sunset. And there are many centenarians here. The oldest old in the village lived to be 114 years old. I believe that it is not just Zhuoni’s natural and pure living environment that prolongs life. The purity of mind brought about by Tibetan Buddhism is another. Longevity gene. Niba Village rises on the mountain and lives by the water. The mountains on both sides of the village are full of dense forests, and there are grass beaches of various sizes on the open land. The houses in the villages are similar in form. The dwellings in the villages are very dense and the houses are connected by walls. All the people in Niba Village believe in Tibetan Buddhism and retain a strong religious atmosphere. A white pagoda by the river is a place where people in the village conduct religious activities. Around the tower are corridors of Mani barrels. Some large Mani barrels are tied with ropes woven from wool of various colors. The other end of the rope is tied to the pillars. Pull the rope and the Mani barrels will rotate and pull a few at the same time. One rope will turn several Mani buckets at the same time. This is for Tibetan elderly people. These wool ropes allow them to sit on the ground and pull the rope to complete their prayers. Here, faith is deeply rooted in the hearts of every villager, and it is reflected in every detail of life. Every day, it will come to the turning gallery to turn the prayer tube. Tips for visiting Niba Village: 1. There is a shuttle bus from Zhuoni County to Niba Village, which departs daily through Gongba Temple and Malu Town. It is a private contractor. You need to go to the station to ask about the time and location of the bus. 2. If you want to experience Tibetan village life in depth, it is recommended to live in Niba Village for one night to fully experience the scenery and lifestyle of Niba Village. The houses on the mountain are relatively simple and the conditions under the mountain are better. You can make Tibetan meals with the owner. Accommodation is calculated per person, and the price is negotiated with the owner. The safest way to insure is to ask the secretary of the Niba village branch to lead the way to the Tibetan home. If necessary, you can leave a message in this travel blog to ask for the contact information of the secretary of the Niba village branch. 3. Niba Village does not produce vegetables. You can buy vegetables at Zhuoni’s bazaar and bring them there. The noodle soup, stewed vegetables and Tibetan dumplings made by Tibetan housewives are delicious. Warabi pork is a local specialty, but it takes a long time to make it. If you eat it, you need to book in advance. 4. Niba Village is still a virgin land that has not developed tourism. When you go here, you should have a respectful and courteous attitude, respect the habits of local villagers' production, life and religious activities, and don't chase villagers, especially the elderly, to take pictures."

"The transportation is very convenient. I take the Shenhui Line 1 to Shuanglong Metro Station in Huizhou, and then transfer 380A to the end point. Both attractions are together. Some staff in Xiaomeisha will introduce it and it is not expensive. It’s fun, and there’s no experience. Then the ticket gate of Ocean World is very convenient. You can go in directly after paying the bill. There are many underwater animals and performances in it. They don’t come out until 5 pm, and take the car back to your own accommodation. , All are expensive, starting at 200, food is also expensive, it is recommended to bring your own"

"I always heard that Hekou Ancient Town is pretty good, but I have never had the opportunity to go. During the National Day holiday, I made an appointment with three or five friends to explore the road. I thought I would be as disappointed as the other attractions, but I didn't expect it to be really good. A lively and quaint little village and town, but it also has a long history. There are many specialties in the town, you can try it." is part of Group Limited, one of the world's leading providers of travel services.
