"In the spring of 1925, standing on the Sichuan border, I faced two roads: go directly to Qinghai, or transfer to Gannan." The famous American Austrian explorer and anthropologist Joseph Locke described it in his diary, and eventually he The latter was chosen. This choice allowed Locke to discover an Eden park hidden in southern Gansu.
After years of tranquility, Zhuoni became the Shambhala forgotten. When I first heard the name of "Zoni", I mistakenly thought that it was the name of a beautiful Tibetan girl. When I really went through it, I found that the beauty here is more fascinating than the girl. Being drunk is not only me waiting for ordinary people, but also the legend of the industry like Locke.
1924, Locke was entrusted by Harvard University to visit Zhuoni, Gansu. He lived here for more than two years, became a close friend with the local toast, and wrote a 46-page feature for National Geographic magazine based on what he saw and heard. It is the inside of "The Living in the Temple of Zhuoni Lama", which inspired James Hilton from China in the future, and imagined a place called "Shangri-La" in his "Disappearing Horizon".
Gannan has a hidden century-old Tibetan village - Niba Village. Here, people live a leisurely day without interruption, and sing the faith into a long poem. Starting from the mountains and living by the water, Niba Village is the kind of paradise written in the book. From afar, the mountains on both sides of the village are dense forests, and large areas of green make people feel comfortable. The Cheba River, which flows slowly, is like a soft ribbon that divides the stockade into two. The most special buildings in the village, the houses in Niba Village are built on the mountain, and the outer walls are mostly yellow. At first glance, they are almost integrated into the environment. Careful to distinguish, the building from low to high, stacked on top of each other, patchwork. Although the architecture here is unique, it is not the old house that attracts me, but the people who are pious. Old people in the village can be seen everywhere, they don't know Chinese, and turning prayers is a very important part of their lives. The curved prayer corridor carries the beliefs of the Tibetans. If you follow them and touch every vicissitudes of the vicissitudes, you can feel the good soul.
From Gannan Cooperation City to Zhuoni, through the 306 Provincial Highway, there are 100 kilometers away, the rolling green hills on both sides, the magnificent grassland pastures, and from time to time there are sheep and yaks crossing the road, such as the quiet Swiss countryside in the Alps.
This road is called "the most beautiful self-driving road in the world", and I am happy to run back and forth. The scenery is picturesque along the way, and we are running in the painting.
In the 1920s, the American Austrian explorer Joseph Locke went deep into the Gannan Tibetan area and lived in Zhuoni for two years.
In 1928, in the National Geographic magazine of the United States, he used 46 pages and 49 pictures to fully describe the Zenith version of the Buddhist scriptures and the customs of Zhuoni. Nie was famous in the world for a time.
This article inspired Joseph Hilton, who has never been to China, and he created the famous "The Lost Horizon", when all the places are arguing that they are "Shangri-La". The real prototype was forgotten because of the war.
Perhaps it is because of forgetting that she has retained the original beauty.
In this land, you can't see the sights and sounds of domestic tourist attractions, you can quietly blend into the scenery, carefully taste, as if the whole picture is yours.

Niba Village, Niba Township, Zhuoni County is an ancient and peculiar century-old Tibetan village. It is called the first village of Amdo Tibetan Area and Longevity Village. People live for their faith, they have no desire, they live with many centenarians, and the longest life has lived to 114 years old.
Niba Village is facing south and is built on the mountain. It is patchy and has a strong character. The clear Cheba River flows quietly and wears through the village. The flag of the front of the village is fluttering with the wind. The long prayer corridor has become the spiritual sustenance of people. From time to time, some villagers turn their prayers and have words in their mouths. The verses engraved on the skull of the cow add a little more sacredness.
Yuanba Niba Village, the building construction is patchwork, row upon row, antique. From low to high, layers are superimposed, and households are connected to form a rigorous and spectacular defense.
Especially under the blue sky and white clouds, the roof of the house on the roof of the house is like a spider web, which is criss-crossed and criss-crossed, adding a sacred and mysterious color to the cottage.
Stay here for a day, let the restless heart calm down and let the time slow down.
