Lingzhi Peach Blossom

Gala Village Peach Blossom

Entering March, major domestic travel websites have been promoting peach blossoms in Nyingchi, Tibet. In this life, it is a wonderful thing to encounter a peach blossom of Three Lives Three Worlds and Ten Miles of Peach Blossom.

It is better to act than to be excited, rent a car, book an air ticket, make an appointment with a partner, everything is under control. On the night of March 26th, I took a plane from Nanjing to Chengdu. After a good night's sleep, I rented a car on the morning of the 27th, and started the trip on the Sichuan-Tibet line by self-driving 317 to 318.

The first stop is Jinchuan, which has the reputation of "Little Jiangnan in Aba Prefecture". Jinchuan is known as the "Hometown of Sydney". Regardless of the fertile soil of the river dam or the mid-mountain slopes, pear trees are planted all over the mountains and plains. Here is a spring that you should not miss.

Standing next to the viewing platform of the highway opposite Jinjiang Village, looking around, it is green, and the white of pear blossoms can hardly be seen. After inquiring, we found out that we came a week late, and the pear blossoms at the foot of the mountain had passed their flowering period. Hearing that there are still some pear blossoms in full bloom on the top of the mountain, we resolutely drove along Jinjiang Village to Fuxing Village.

The car drove us up the hills, and suddenly we saw the grand scene of "Suddenly like a spring breeze overnight, thousands of trees and pear blossoms bloom.".

Walking under the pear tree, the song "Pear Blossoms Are Blooming Again" echoed in my ears:

I can't forget my hometown,
Pear blossoms bloom every year,
whitened the hills my little village,
Mother sat under the pear tree,
The spinning wheel hums,
I climbed, pear branch,
Smell the fragrance of pear blossoms.
Shake the white branches,
The rain of flowers is flying all over the sky,
fell on mother's head,
Floating on the spinning wheel.
Give me a happy hometown,
never forget,
Forever and forever

Return to that hometown,
The pear blossoms are blooming again,
I have found my dream, and I am heartfelt.
In the small village everything remains the same,
empty under the tree,
Under the tree full of pear blossoms,
The spinning wheel stopped ringing.
Shake the white branches,
The rain of flowers is flying all over the sky,
Two lines of tears rolling down,
flow under the tree.
Give me a homeland of flesh and blood,
never forget,
I can never forget, never forget
Shake the white branches,
The rain of flowers is flying all over the sky,
Two lines of tears rolling down,
flow under the tree.
Give me a homeland of flesh and blood,
never forget,
I can't forget, never forget
Forever and ever, I can't forget

Jinchuan is located in the transition zone between the Hengduan Mountains and the Sichuan Basin. It is the largest pear planting area in the world with original ecology and high altitude. Since the end of Ming Dynasty and the beginning of Qing Dynasty, Jiarong Tibetans have widely planted pear trees with high cold resistance and medicinal functions here. Thousands of acres of pear blossoms bloom every March. The pear blossoms on both sides of the Dajinchuan River Valley, which stretches for more than 100 kilometers, together with the blue sky, white clouds, wheat fields, rivers, dwellings, watchtowers, etc., together depict pictures of "worldly pear gardens".

After leaving Fuxing Village, we went back to the hotel to rest, walked out at night, and ate grilled fish. When we came back, there was a Tibetan square dance in the square in front of the county government. Dancing is still good.

The next morning, knowing that the flowers had already withered, we went to the Shenxianbao Scenic Spot in Shaer Township according to the original plan.

The mountain road is steep and narrow. Fortunately, we have an old driver, Ayong, who finally arrived at the Shenxianbao Observation Deck after many twists and turns.

Overlooking the mountain from here, the field of vision is wide. At the foot of the opposite mountain, there is a layer of faint mist. The villages at the foot of the mountain are not blessed by pear blossoms, and the scenery is much inferior. However, there are still many blooming flowers on the surrounding hilltops. pear blossom.

The sun crossed the mountain and sprinkled the sunlight on the earth and all things, which suddenly seemed full of vitality.

We continued to walk to Shida'an Village deep in the mountains. There were fewer and fewer people, but the scenery became more and more beautiful.

Finally, put a work photo as the end of the trip to Jinchuan.

After coming out of Jinchuan, we went to Danba Suopo Diaolou, and the scenery along the way was picturesque.

Suopo Township in Danba is located deep in the mountains. We parked the car in the parking lot at the entrance of the village and walked to the watchtowers on the hillside.

There are almost no tourists here. The path to the watchtower needs to pass through a group of ancient coptis trees. Such a large coptis tree must be taken as a souvenir.

Finally climbed up to the platform where the watchtowers are located, looking up at the towers that are tall but crumbling, it is really hard to understand why their predecessors built so many watchtowers. It is said that the main function of the watchtowers is to defend against foreign enemies, deter Feng Shui, highlight status, family In terms of honor and other aspects, my personal understanding is that the defensive function is the weakest, and the role of highlighting the status may be the most significant. Otherwise, every household in a village will not build its own watchtower without planning.

After returning to the county seat for lunch, we continued to go to the Tibetan village on the middle road.

There are three viewing platforms here. In order not to miss the beautiful scenery, we drove up to each viewing platform. The highest viewing platform No. 3 has a very steep road. The car in front was going to turn around because of fear. After my encouragement, I bravely climbed up. There is still a ladder from the parking lot of the No. 3 viewing platform to the viewing platform. When I finally climbed up to the viewing platform out of breath, I still had a little sense of pride in my heart.

Danba has the largest number of ancient watchtowers in the country, known as the "Ancient Country of Thousands of Watchtowers", and the middle road is the place where Danba watchtowers are concentrated. From a high place, you can overlook these watchtowers and Tibetan villages of various shapes, white Tibetan houses and gold The temple on the top is clearly visible under the blue sky, colorful but not messy, very beautiful.

The place to stay tonight is Jiaju Tibetan Village. The accommodation on Dingshan can be driven up the mountain, and the ticket discount is 40 yuan per person. After we bought the tickets, we found that there was no place to check the tickets along the way.

I visited Jiaju Tibetan Village more than ten years ago. At that time, I stayed at the "Three Sisters Inn". Therefore, when I went up the mountain today, I searched carefully and found it, but the scale was much larger than before.

We also stayed in a Tibetan-style inn. Each floor has a large viewing terrace with reclining chairs and Tibetan beds. From here you can see the complete scenery of Jiaju Tibetan Village.

"Jiaju" means hundreds of families in Tibetan. The entire cottage follows the undulating mountains, and on the hillside with a relative height difference of nearly a thousand meters, Tibetan-style buildings are scattered among the green trees. It may be dotted with stars, or densely packed, or on the cliffs of high mountains, or among the green grass of river dams, from time to time, the smoke from the kitchen is curling up and the clouds are lingering, and together with the valleys full of aura, clear streams, and snow-capped peaks, it presents an idyllic picture scroll. In front of people's eyes, it exists in the form of a work of art. In 2005, "Danba Tibetan Village" represented by Jiaju Tibetan Village was rated as the first among the "Six Most Beautiful Ancient Rural Towns in China" in the beauty pageant China organized by "Chinese National Geographic".

Put down your luggage, go to the viewing platform lightly, and take a few beautiful photos.

The next morning, in order to leave Danba County before the road was closed at 8:00, we set off at early 7:00 to Moshi Park.

The mylonite rock forest in Bamei was formed because the sedimentary rocks on the seabed rose gradually with the movement of the earth's crust in ancient times, and were crushed by powerful ground stress. The stone forest landscape that looks like an alien planet. Because this kind of rock is weak and calcareous, similar metamorphic rock forest landscapes are extremely rare in the world, and its unique geological structure is called "Chinese Geological Bermuda" by experts and scholars.

From Moshi Park, we continued to the Tagong Temple not far away.

Tagong Temple is a famous Sakya (Flower Sect) temple in Ganzi Prefecture. It is an important holy place for Tibetans to worship in Kangba area. It is also known as "Little Jokhang Temple".

Tagong Temple was built in the middle of the seventh century A.D. According to legend, in about 641 A.D., in order to strengthen national unity and consolidate the frontier, Emperor Taizong of Tang betrothed Princess Wencheng to Songtsen Gampo, king of Tibet, and placed a 12-year-old statue of Sakyamuni Buddha To the princess and the king of Tibet. When Princess Wencheng entered Tibet and passed the Tagong, the Buddha statue seemed to have taken root on the ground, and could no longer move half a step! Princess Wencheng immediately decided to order everyone to use the golden sand on the spot to copy a Buddha statue according to its original appearance and leave it in the pagoda. Only after the completion of the new statue, the original statue was able to leave smoothly, and finally arrived in Lhasa and was enshrined in the Jokhang Temple.

After Princess Wencheng arrived in Lhasa, Songtsan Gampo issued a decree to build 108 monasteries with the gates facing the Han area. Tagong Temple happened to be the 108th among these monasteries with boundless righteousness and consummation. The word "Tagong" means "Buddhas and Bodhisattvas are happy and happy" in Tibetan, and the Tagong Temple is also named "One View Tuo Ruyi Temple".

Coming out of Tagong Temple, whether it is Baidu or Gaode, it always reminds that the road to Ganzi County needs to detour for hundreds of kilometers because of the road closure. I asked the locals during the meal, and I didn’t hear about the road closure, so I decisively drove past the location where the road closure was indicated on the navigation as a passing point. It turned out that there was only a short section of the landslide route, which had been temporarily restored, and there was no traffic at all. question.

The King Gesar City Scenic Area in Ganzi County is a newly built place in recent years in order to compete with Yushu in Qinghai and Seda in Sichuan for the hometown of King Gesar in Ganzi. King Gesar is a hero in the hearts of the Tibetan people, a great guardian deity with boundless magic power in Tibetan Buddhism, and the only protagonist in the Tibetan folk epic "Gesar". "Gesar" is an extremely grand Tibetan folk heroic epic. Known as the encyclopedia of ancient Tibetan society, it is the longest known epic in the world and the only living epic.

The Wangcheng is surrounded by mountains and rivers, with a large scale. During the day, you can see the surrounding snow-capped mountains, and at night, it is brightly lit.

The journey to Qamdo the next day was quite a distance, and we set off before dawn. Along the way, we saw snow-capped mountains standing on both sides of the road, and a round moon hung on the snow-capped mountains. What a wonderful picture it is!

It's a pity that because the road is not very convenient for parking, we can only run all the way, burying this peerless beauty in our hearts.

Before the moon finally set, when the sun was just rising, I finally drove to a small village and town. There was a safe parking place, so I stopped immediately, took out my camera, and recorded this rare beauty.

The next Xinluhai is located at the foot of Queer Mountain. It is a famous icy lake in Ganzi Prefecture. The viewing platform by the road is still a hundred and eight thousand miles away from the real lake. In order to see its true face, the idlers and I overcame the high altitude (4400 meters above sea level) and decided to cross the stream and head to the lake.

The stream is not very wide, but it is still very difficult to cross it. We walked along the stream for dozens of meters, and finally found a place where stones were strewn together, walked over, climbed over several ridges, and finally came to the lake.

The ice and snow on the lake have not completely melted. In order to take pictures of the reflection of the snow mountain, I climbed over the huge dead trees by the lake and finally found a melting lake.

After seeing the photos we took of the snow-capped mountains reflected in the lake, the few people who didn't go regretted it to death.

When I arrived at the Dege Sutra Printing House, it was less than 11 am, and there was still more than an hour before the end of the visit in the morning. I hurriedly bought a ticket of 50 yuan and entered the tour.

It is a little regrettable that the Sutra Printing House prohibits camera shooting, and the camera bag must be stored, and there is no restriction on mobile phone shooting.

The Dege Sutra Printing House, from the traditional Tibetan architecture to the woodcut printing plates stacked on the sutra shelf to the exquisite murals and sculptures, are all precious cultural relics, storing 70% of the ancient books in Tibetan culture. They are the Great Wall of Tibetan culture, an epic of culture, and a miracle of culture. In today's world, more than 270,000 printing plates are completely preserved, which is unique. It should be said that Dege Sutra Printing House is well-deserved as a world cultural heritage.

It is said that the printing plate is made of red birch wood. Every year after autumn, people go up to the mountains to cut wood, choose straight and knotless trunks, cut them into 10*100 cm long and 4 cm thick wood blocks, smoke them with a low fire, and then put them into the cesspool for retting for a winter.

In the next year, the wooden blocks are taken out, boiled, dried, polished, and planed to make a germ plate. The sculptors carve according to the characters written on the paper molds by skilled calligraphers. Usually, a skilled craftsman can only complete one-sided engraving of a printing plate every day, and it takes about 10 days to complete the single-sided text engraving of a picture plate.

When visiting the sutra board warehouse, I found that there are rows of densely packed sutra boards, but there is no numbering system like library books. I really don’t know how to accurately find each sutra board I need.

When I was visiting the roof of the Sutra Printing House, I happened to see my companion at the gate below, so I got this photo.

There are many Tibetans turning clockwise around the scripture printing house, and we followed suit.

When I arrived at Qamdo, today’s destination, it was less than 7 o’clock in the evening. Since the sun set late in Tibet, I walked for 20 minutes alone to visit Jambaling Monastery.

Jambalin Temple, located on Mala Mountain, is the largest temple in eastern Tibet. It is named after the main worship of the future Buddha Jamba Buddha (ie Maitreya Buddha). There are many monks, and it is one of the temples with the most monks in Tibet. It was built in the 1530s by Xirao Sangbu, an apprentice of the founder of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism, Tsongkhapa.

As the evening is approaching, all the main halls in the temple are closed to thank guests. Only a few dozen monks are doing evening classes at the entrance of an unknown hall behind the main hall.

In a corner of the temple, monks are debating scriptures. It seems that in order to persuade the other party, they use both hands and feet, and cooperate with expressions. It is quite a performance, but who is it for? I'm the only outsider.

In the evening, we stayed in the best hotel in the whole process. There was floor heating, and we were so hot that we pushed on the quilt in the middle of the night.

Starting from Qamdo, crossing the Yela Pass, the wind here is very strong, which makes people feel cold.

Immediately after passing the famous 72 turn of the Nujiang River, it is a pity that there is no drone, so the whole picture cannot be taken.

At around 4 pm, we arrived at the famous Laigu Glacier.

Laigu Glacier is next to Ranwu Lake and is the largest and widest glacier known in Tibet. The name of Laigu Glacier comes from a small village next to the glacier - Laigu Village. The Tibetan language of Laigu Village means a hidden, paradise-like village.

Laigu Glacier currently does not require tickets. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the glacier. There are Tibetan horses to ride. We didn't plan to ride, so we didn't ask the price.

The Internet is full of photos of Laigu glaciers pretending to be Antarctica. Unfortunately, the ice on the lake has already started to melt, and there is no way to go to the ice tongue. I picked up a stone and smashed it, and the stone sank to the bottom of the lake with a thud.

Unwilling to give up, I walked around the lake for a while, hoping to get to the ice tongue, but unfortunately the lake was too big, so I had to give up.

Today's Shangranwu Lake, because of the gloomy weather and the relatively strong wind, there is no shooting value, so I left for the accommodation after a quick car tour.

In the evening, I spent 288 yuan to eat the famous Lulang Stone Pot Chicken, but because of the altitude of 3900 meters, my appetite was not whetted, and there was a lot of chicken left in the end.

When I got up the next morning, I found that the outside was covered with snow, and there was a lot of snow, and a thick layer of snow had accumulated on the car. After the car was on the road, the heavy snow still did not stop, and the surroundings were white, like a fairy tale world.

In the mountain scenery near breakfast, the snow has stopped at this time, but the shadow of snow can still be seen.

After the car entered the territory of Bomi, the surrounding peach blossoms gradually increased. We drove into Taohuagou, which is 50 kilometers deep, and savored the beauty of peach blossoms along the way. At noon, we had lunch in Yuxu Township, the deepest part of Taohuagou.

After coming out of Taohuagou, in order to save more time for tomorrow's itinerary, we drove until it was dark before arriving at Lulang and staying there.

In the evening, we will continue with the Lulang stone pot chicken, as if we have agreed, the price is still 288 yuan.

As soon as the car left Lulang the next morning, the police stopped us and asked us if we had snow chains. It is said that there is snow on the Sejila Mountain Road ahead. I bought a belt for 280 yuan and started climbing.

While driving, I saw the cars in front of me stopped and started to install snow chains. It was the first time for everyone to install snow chains in their lives, and they finally installed them with all their hands and feet, and learned a new skill.

The next mountain climbing process was both thrilling and tormenting. The roads were in a mess. We saw a large truck almost turn over the valley, but we got down safely.

In the afternoon, wander around several peach blossom villages in Nyingchi.

The peach blossoms in Linzhi area are different from the style of Jiangnan green peaches. The scientific name is "light walnut", also known as "Tibetan peach", commonly known as "wild peach". The trees are tall and the flowers bloom wildly. The light walnut tree is tall and can live for more than a thousand years.

The peach blossoms in Nyingchi are plateau peach blossoms. In many places, the peach blossoms are in full bloom at the foot of the mountain, and there are snow peaks on the mountain, which has a unique flavor.

There are peach blossoms all over the mountains and plains in Daze Village.

In the evening, stay in Bayi Town, the capital of Nyingchi.

The next day, head to Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon. After passing the Niyang River Scenic Belt and Tanniang Sand Dunes in turn.

Arrived at the Grand Canyon Scenic Area, took an eco-car and visited the Grand Canyon.

The Brahmaputra Grand Canyon is the largest and deepest canyon on earth.

The total length of the Grand Canyon is 504.6 kilometers, the deepest point is 6009 meters, and the average depth is 2268 meters. It splits the mountain barrier between the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and the water vapor of the Indian Ocean, and continuously transports water vapor to the interior of the plateau, making the southeastern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau a green world and making Nyingchi the south of Tibet.

After coming out of the Grand Canyon, we picked up the car and went to Suosong Village, where we stayed today.

Suosong Village is located on the north bank of the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon, which is the best place to watch the most beautiful mountain in China - Namjagbarwa. During Linzhi’s Peach Blossom period, there are so many tourists here that it’s hard to find a room for accommodation. When we booked online in advance, we didn’t get a room in the village, so we had to find a room in Paizhen. After searching around, we finally saw what was leaking from the village. Accommodation, so wasted 200 liquidated damages, and finally lived in the village.

Before dinner, Namjagbarwa Peak finally lost its true face for half a minute. Before it had time to take pictures, it hid in the clouds again. It was rainy and stormy at night, and the shooting plan for the starry sky had to be ruined.

Early the next morning, we drove to Nyingchi Milin Airport, returned the car and flew back to Nanjing, ending this pleasant 10-day flower viewing trip.
