"🔸The Gongtang Pagoda was first built in 1805. It was created by the famous scholar of the Labrang Monastery III, Gongtangcang·Gongqutenbei Zhongmei. The original name is "The Great Golden Pagoda", because the pagoda contains welcome guests from Nepal. The immeasurable light Buddha statue (Amitabha) that was invited is very famous. 🔸In 1806, the Emperor Jiaqing of the Qing Dynasty gave a plaque "Buddha Guangpu Zhao". After the fourth and fifth generations of Gong Tangcang spent huge sums of money and repaired several times, they reached a perfect and sacred state in the architectural and religious sense. 🔸The pagoda has gone through a hundred years of vicissitudes and was unfortunately destroyed by the "Cultural Revolution". In 1980, after the Labrang Monastery was opened to the outside world, the VI Gongtang Tangcang Tenbei Wangxu worked hard to revitalize the ancestral style, promote education and benefit the people, and worked hard. With the support of the state, overseas Chinese and religious people, in 1991 On February 8, 2008, he personally presided over the clean ground ritual and started the reconstruction. 🔸After two and a half years, in July 1993, a consecration ceremony for eternal existence was held on the special festival of Buddha Shakyamuni’s first turning of the wheel of the Dharma. 📕Gongtang Pagoda is an important place of Labrang Monastery, and it is also a main attraction for visiting Labrang Monastery.

"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."

"Whenever I read Cangyang Gyatso's masterpiece "That Month, That Year, That Life", what always comes to my mind is a picture of the Snowy Buddha Kingdom, the Pure Land of Brahma, and people with faith crawling on the ground. The image of the long head approaching the Buddha. The height of the mountains, the blue sky, the beauty of clouds, the spirit of water, and the pure air are the secrets that I longed for in my heart and dreams. I got up and set foot in the distance, just to find the heaven and earth that I yearn for in the middle and long distances. The desolation and the throbbing of the heart, outside the world, the untouched scenes should not only appear in dreams. In fact, you don't need to be in Tibet or in western Sichuan, Gannan Zhuoni can present you a different Brahma Pure Land. At the beginning of the last century, this beautiful place was published by the American Austrian botanist and anthropologist Locke on what he had seen and heard during his two-year stay in the American magazine "National Geographic". Zhuoni surprised the world. In July, we re-take the Rock Road, while exploring the cultural and historical relics of Zhuoni, feel the most beautiful section of self-driving road in the world (we call it Rock Road), showing you a pure natural scenery and "The hometown of the king of Tibet" and "the hometown of Tao Yan" are the secret realm of Zhuoni. Snowland Buddha Kingdom, Brahma Pure Land, Gannan Zhuoni is a secret land with pure natural scenery and profound cultural background of "Hometown of Tibetan King" and "Hometown of Taoyan". The Zhuoni International Self-Driving Carnival in July and August every year is a worthwhile trip. The best way for Zhuoni to travel is by car. The scenery along the way is beautiful and everywhere, you can stop by the roadside at any time to watch, and there is no train in Gannan Prefecture. As Zhuoni is close to the northern part of Sichuan, it is recommended to visit it with other places in Gannan and Jiuzhaigou, Huanglong and Ruoergai in Aba Prefecture of Sichuan. The scenery here is relatively primitive and there are almost no tickets. The biggest expense is transportation. The main line is to play. Basically, the charter fee for 2-3 days is more than 1,000 yuan. Dayugou, Chanding Temple, and Zhagara are all highly recommended attractions."

"The Lijiaxia Reservoir is the third-level reservoir from the source of the Yellow River. Due to the impoundment and sedimentation of the reservoir, the water of the Yellow River became clear in this section. At the same time, due to the combination of the peculiar topography around the reservoir, a beautiful Danxia landform was formed. ." is part of Group Limited, one of the world's leading providers of travel services.
