There is a place that I have always wanted to go to, but have never dared to go, and that is Tibet.

I read a passage a few days ago, and the fire in my heart was quickly ignited:

When you are immersed in making PPT, the cod in Alaska may be jumping out of the water;

When you look at the boring report, the golden monkey in Meili Snow Mountain just climbed the top of the tree;

When you are crowded on the subway, Tibetan mountain eagles are hovering in the clouds;

There are some places where high heels cannot go,

There is some air that cannot be smelled with perfume,

There are some people that you will never see in an office building.

It's not that you don't have time, it's just that you lack the courage to walk away!


I have to admit the magic of words, and the beautiful language makes people unable to help but lower their immunity. I am also fortunate to believe this passage. I visited Tibet in early December and gained beautiful scenery all the way. During the 5 days before and after, I visited three 5A-level scenic spots in Lhasa, the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple and Nyingchi Basongcuo, and saw yaks, Tibetan pigs, Buddha's Palm Sand Dunes, Kadinggou Waterfall, Dobut Bridge, and the sunrise of the Lhasa River. , Nanga Bawa sunshine Jinshan. Lakes and canyons, temples, snow peaks, streets and villages, the diverse landscapes are amazing, and the colorful scenery of blue, green, yellow, white, and red is amazing. It was a worthwhile trip, the Potala Palace is a world cultural heritage project (later expanded to the Jokhang Temple and Norbulingka), Basongcuo is the only 5A-level scenic spot in Tibet for natural scenery, and Namjagbarwa Peak is known as the world's largest scenic spot. The most beautiful mountain, Dobut Bridge is known as the most beautiful bridge on the Niyang River on the Lalin Highway.










Traveling to Tibet is believed to be the dream of many people. I have also been included in the travel list for a long time, but I have been afraid to leave. Fear of altitude sickness is a real problem, let alone winter, the oxygen content is lower. This time I experienced it on the ground, and the high-defense was really tormenting, mainly due to headache, dizziness, swollen eyes, rapid heartbeat, and dry mouth. It was more uncomfortable on the day of arrival, and I could not sleep at night. The second and third days were relieved. , but compared with the beautiful scenery along the way, these tortures are not worth mentioning. Looking back now, it is also an unforgettable memory in life.





Many people think that Tibet is very cold in winter. In fact, Lhasa is known as the "Sunshine City". It is almost at the same latitude as Shanghai and Hangzhou. The average temperature during the day is about 10°C, but the temperature is lower at night, but most of them are indoors at this time. And winter belongs to the "dry season", with many sunny days and stable weather conditions. The probability of seeing the most beautiful side of the canyon and snow peaks is higher. Unlike the rainy season from June to September, there are more wind, rain and fog, and mudslides are prone to occur. The disadvantage of winter is that the oxygen content is relatively less, and once it snows heavily, it will affect the traffic; the advantage is that there are fewer tourists and the price is affordable. In recent years, the local government has vigorously promoted the preferential policy of "winter tour to Tibet", and Lhasa in winter is becoming more and more lively.






The reason why I chose Lhasa and Nyingchi this time is not only because the altitude is relatively low and bearable, and the journey is more comfortable, but also because of the characteristics of Tibetan areas, religious culture, lakes and mountains and other natural and cultural landscapes. Here are relatively concentrated, so you don’t have to go through one or two scenic spots. Difficulties, trekking through mountains and rivers.


For altitude sickness, here are a few more words. From the plains at a lower altitude to the plateaus above 3000 meters, it is normal for the human body to react. Generally, it is headache, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, nausea and vomiting. Don't be too nervous, it will gradually ease in three or four days, and basically nothing will happen in a week or so. Many people I met, including businessmen, tourists, drivers, tour guides, etc. from the Mainland, all had the same symptoms at first, and they got used to it after a while. This time I had an obvious reaction in Lhasa at more than 3,600 meters, and the headache disappeared as soon as I reached Nyingchi at more than 2,900 meters, which shows that high anti-reflex is normal, and it is enough to be mentally prepared.


My suggestion is 4 "points":

One is better for the heart. Keep your luggage as small as possible, lighten your load, avoid strenuous exercise, eat less greasy food, don't drink alcohol, don't catch cold, and let your "careful liver" go into battle lightly.


The second is to stay away from drugs. "Medicine is three-point poison." Many people suggest taking medicine supplements such as Rhodiola rosea, Gaoyuan'an, and glucose oral liquid. Only God knows how effective it will be. Some medicines are said to be miraculous, and it cannot be ruled out that the merchants advertise and use people's fear to hype them. It is normal for the body to react when there is less oxygen. Why forcefully violate the laws of nature? Besides, traveling will only take a few days, and it will not cause permanent damage to the body. I took "Sanlitong" with me this time, and I didn't eat a single one. Of course, if you have serious discomfort such as confusion, unbalanced walking, cyanosis of lips and nails for more than 24 hours, please go to a regular hospital immediately. What can immediately relieve high reaction is medical oxygen, which is available in regular hospitals. According to the locals, the small bottles of oxygen on the market are basically useless because of their low concentration.


The third is to listen to the experience of others. Everyone's situation is different, and other people's experience, including what I said here, may not be suitable for you. Don't try to ask you to ask him, and make yourself anxious. It is not ruled out that some people pretend to be nonchalant without telling the truth, or exaggerate their words to scare people.


The fourth is to be rational in the choice of means of transportation. It is recommended to take a plane, fast in and fast out, easy and comfortable. Some people say that by taking the train to Tibet, you can gradually adapt to the high altitude. This may be a "beautiful lie". At present, there is only one Qinghai-Tibet railway to Tibet. Regardless of whether it is from Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou, Chengdu, all trains must be replaced by special plateau oxygen supply trains at Xining Railway Station in Qinghai Province. You entered Tibet breathing oxygen, which is different from the actual situation on the plateau you are about to step into. Moreover, the train has to bump up and down for more than ten or even dozens of hours, and the rest cannot be fully guaranteed, and the price of the soft sleeper is not necessarily cheap. Of course, except for the experience of crossing the Hoh Xil and watching the Tanggula Mountains of the Tuotuo River from a distance, but be rational. As someone said, the 1956-kilometer celestial dragon you see in your circle of friends is romanticism; you can understand what realism is when you travel on the plateau permafrost at an altitude of 5072 meters.








[Day 1] Nantong—Xi'an ZH9260 (21:40—0:15)


There is no direct flight from Nantong to Lhasa, but you can transfer from Shanghai, Nanjing, Hefei, Xi'an, Zhengzhou, Chongqing, Chengdu, Kunming and other places. Xi'an has become the first choice because of its many flights and affordable prices. If you leave at night, you can save one day off. Although it is hard work, it saves time.


10 days before the departure, the airline sent a message saying that the departure time was delayed, and the ticket can be refunded free of charge by selecting "involuntary refund" through the ticket purchase platform. I wanted to take the opportunity to change the itinerary, and it would be more comfortable to depart during the day, but considering the follow-up itinerary, I chose this flight, and the fare was cheaper than before.




After more than an hour, we arrived in Xi'an smoothly. The booked hotel is near the airport and provides 24-hour shuttle service, which is very convenient.


[Day 2] Xi'an-Lhasa MU9619 (7:40-11:10). Watching the sea of ​​clouds and snow-capped mountains from the plane. After arriving, take a rest, visit Potala Palace Square, Potala Palace, Zongjiao Lukang Park, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street, Yaowang Mountain, and see the night view of Potala Palace at night.














Tibet, here I come.

Lhasa Gonggar Airport is located in Shannan City. There is an airport bus to downtown Lhasa. The fare is 30 yuan. The whole highway, about 70 minutes. 


At the beginning, there was no discomfort, but the sun was too bright, my mouth was dry, and I had to drink water from time to time.





Arrive at Rujia neo hotel at 12:30 noon.


The booked view room has a wide view, and the Potala Palace is outside the window.


After sitting down, I felt a little dizzy. I don't know if it was lack of sleep (only 4 hours of sleep last night), or the altitude sickness started to play a role. Rest first, and go out for a tour after an hour. Opposite the Kangangduo South Road downstairs of the hotel is the Potala Palace Square as the first stop. According to many guides, the movement should be slow and the range should be small, and the 400-meter distance should be walked for 10 minutes.

Go through security first. There are many places in Tibet that require security checks. When entering and exiting public places such as airports, stations, and scenic spots, face recognition and identity verification are required. So you have to carry your ID card with you.

The first thing that catches the eye is the artificial lake, where you can take a reflection of the Potala Palace.


The Potala Palace Square is 600 meters long from east to west and 400 meters wide from north to south, with a total area of ​​240,000 square meters. It is the square with the highest altitude in the world. What is the concept? For comparison, Tianmen Square in Beijing is 880 meters long from north to south, 500 meters wide from east to west, and has a total area of ​​440,000 square meters.

The Monument to the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet was built in 2001 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951. The main body is gray and white, with the abstract Mount Everest as the shape, the top is the five-star pattern of the national flag, and the bottom is two groups of bronze sculptures with the theme of the liberation of the turned serfs and the praise of the People's Liberation Army for building roads.







Watch a video:



After half an hour, leave the square to visit the Potala Palace. The road in the middle is Beijing Middle Road, which is a bit like Chang'an Avenue in front of Tiananmen Square. Vehicles can pass through it, and the underground passage is required to get from the square to Bugong.


Below the launch tower is Yaowang Mountain. It is the best angle to watch the Potala Palace pattern on the back of RMB 50. Come visit later.

Most of the white tower, individual tourists and group tours gather here.


Visiting the Potala Palace requires security checks and ID checks 

 After passing the security check, go to the left to turn the scriptures and worship, and go to the right to visit the palace.



Pick up an appointment form at the window



Opposite the Potala Palace Square

The Potala Palace is built on the mountain, with an appearance of 13 floors and a height of 110 meters. It consists of the White House in the east (the place where Lama DaLai lives), the Red Palace in the middle (Buddhist hall and the pagoda hall of Lama DaLai in the past), and the monk's dormitory and the residence of the entourage in the west. In the 7th century AD, Zanpu Songtsen Gampo, the 33rd generation of Tubo, moved the capital to Lhasa from the south of the mountain and began to build the Potala Palace. In 1645 AD, the fifth Dalai Lama decided to rebuild the Potala Palace. After years of continuous construction and accumulation, it was not until the thirteenth Dalai Lama passed away in 1933 that the Potala Palace as seen today was finally achieved.



With the appointment coupon, the second security check. The tour begins officially, and photography and video recording are not allowed in the palace.

The visit process mentioned here is the case of free tickets for the "Winter Tour to Tibet", which is different in the peak season. You must make an appointment in advance (at the window or the official website of the Potala Palace). After the appointment is successful, you can buy tickets. Each ticket is 200 yuan, and the number of visitors per day is limited. It is said that a ticket can cost more than 1,000 yuan during the summer vacation.


It took 15 minutes to look at the Treasure Hall. Inside are the seals, seals, imperial edicts, porcelain, jade, silk, ivory carvings, Buddha statues, and cultural relics such as thangkas, ornaments, gold and silverware handed down from Tibet, which reflect the long history and cultural heritage of Tibet. Splendid culture.


The Potala Palace is built on the Red Mountain. When visiting, you have to climb up the "zigzag" mountain road, one step at a time. Perhaps this is not a big deal in plain areas, but in Lhasa, which is more than 3,600 meters above sea level, it is very strenuous to climb more than 900 steps.


Climb up slowly, climb and climb, drink some water, take a rest and climb again. My heart was beating fast, my temples were throbbing, my hair was dizzy, and my lips were purple. It's a bit chilly in the shade, so wear a hat.





This is the "Deyang Xia" East Joy Plaza, which is a place exclusively for Lama DaLai to watch dancing gods and Tibetan opera performances during the festival. The three rows of wooden escalators juxtaposed above are relatively steep, although they are not very high. The escalator in the middle is dedicated to DaLai, and monks and officials are only allowed to go up and down from the escalators on both sides. This is the only way to the various palaces, and then you start to visit the White House, and you are not allowed to take pictures inside or outside.

As the crowd walks through the various palaces, many contents of Tibetan Buddhism, such as spiritual halls, statues, murals, Thangkas, handicrafts, etc., are ignorant, so it is best to ask a tour guide to accompany them.

The White House is seven floors high, and it was the office of the former Tibetan local government, and the winter palace of Lama Dalai (the summer palace is Norbulingka). The East Hall in the center of the fourth floor is the place for major religious and political activities such as Lama Dalai's enthronement and pro-government ceremony. The fifth and sixth floors are the office and living rooms of the Regency. The seventh highest floor is the living palace of Lama Dalai in winter, that is, the East and West Sunlight Halls. It is said that the "palace" does not exceed 30 square meters, and the lighting is much better than most of the dimly lit maze-like rooms in the Bugong Palace. Zhaxia at the westernmost end is the place where Lama DaLai's close entourage lives. 


Later, I went to the Red Palace to visit, because I was not allowed to take pictures, and I didn’t invite a tour guide. I only wrote down the names of a few palaces: the chapel at the highest point, Senqiong Gandan Langsai, the portrait of the 13th DL, and the paint for the murals came from Minerals, the yellow one is gold, and it is said that gold is the most indispensable thing in Bugong. There are also Lunlangkang, Qivir Danji, Pabala, Tukhorakang, Tsibalakang, Rinzeng Lakang, Chongrao Lakang, and so on.

Gao Fan continued to follow, feeling a little strenuous when going up and down the stairs between the palaces, he felt better after resting for a while. 

It takes an hour and a half from the first security check to here.




After the visit, leave from the back mountain.


I feel a little dizzy when walking down, like riding a car on a winding mountain road, turning left and right, feeling weak, eyes swollen, mouth dry, drink hot water or take a rest.



Zongjiao Lukang Park is located behind Bu Palace. "Zongjiao" means behind the palace, and "Lukang" means Lu Temple. Lu Shen is the collective name of Tibetan Buddhism for the gods of the underground and water, and is usually translated into "Dragon God" in Chinese.


Sunbathing in Lhasa is a kind of enjoyment. Lazy afternoon, sunshine, blue sky, sweet tea, flying birds, dazed, relaxing, so pleasant.


Dragon King Pool. During the expansion of the Potala Palace in the 17th century, a large amount of soil was taken here, so water accumulated and formed a pool.


 The sun is strong, the water surface is floating, and the reflection on the back of the Potala Palace cannot be photographed effectively. 

In the past, only a few monks and nobles could come in and play here, and the common people were turned away. Now it has become a park for everyone to share. Watch a video: People of all ethnic groups singing and dancing.






Enduring a headache, we walked to the Jokhang Temple.


The Jokhang Temple is an existing building from the Tubo period in Tibet, and it is also the earliest civil structure building in Tibet. There is a saying in Lhasa that "there is Jokhang Temple first, and then there is Lhasa City". The original name of the temple was "Jasa", which later evolved into "Lhasa", which became the name of the city. The most famous thing here is that it enshrines the 12-year-old statue of Sakyamuni brought by Princess Wencheng from Chang'an of the Tang Dynasty.


The Jokhang Temple is the end point of the pilgrimage for Tibetan Buddhist believers. Many pilgrims kowtow at the gate of the temple, and the power of belief of the people in Tibetan areas can be glimpsed to see the whole picture. 




Barkhor Street is nearby, turn around and stroll around








The Ramoche Temple requires entrance fees, but it is not free according to the "winter tour to Tibet" policy, so I took a look outside and left.



street snap 






Come to Yaowang Mountain and watch the patterns on the back of RMB 50.




Shoot left and right, but it’s just not right, I can only say that it’s a little bit similar, the level is limited, comfort yourself, “I’ve been here”.






It's time for dinner. Tibetan cuisine and Sichuan cuisine are the main dishes in Tibet. Because of the close geographical location, Sichuan people were the first batch to set up shop and do business in Lhasa and other places, and now the entire Tibetan area is basically monopolized by Sichuan cuisine. The same is true across the country. Sichuan-style cuisine, mainly spicy and fresh, is spread all over the land of China.

Umbrella-shaped gas heaters, which are available in many stores, deal with the cold after the sun goes down.

Lanzhou beef noodles (21 yuan), hand-caught mutton (half catty, 50 yuan). Vegetables are relatively expensive here.


Night view of Potala Palace

Back at the Potala Palace Square, the reflection of the night scene in the artificial lake is a little more charming than the daytime.





Back to the hotel at 8:30 in the evening, ah, a fulfilling day, a day tortured by high anti-reverse, a day of aesthetic fatigue.

Sleepless tonight, high anti-entanglement. Headache, swollen eyes, dry throat, tossing and turning, restless heart. Alas, why spend money and suffer?

[Third and fourth days] 2-day tour with the group: Nyingchi, Kadinggou, Brahmaputra Grand Canyon, Basongcuo.


There are relatively concentrated tourist attractions in Tibet, one is Lhasa and the other is Nyingchi. Nyingchi is known as the "Little South of the Yangtze River in Tibet". It has a low altitude, beautiful mountains and clear waters, and pleasant scenery. It is the first choice for visiting Tibet for the first time. This two-day tour with the group, along the way, the plateau lakes, temples, snow-capped mountains, and rural scenery made people feel like they were in the Jiangnan water town. The scenery along the Niyang River, the "most beautiful bridge" Dobut Bridge, Buddha's Palm Sand Dunes, and Nanga Bawa Peak Rizhao Jinshan are unforgettable.

The Nyingchi line is usually a 3-day tour. In winter, some scenic spots such as Benri Mountain and Lulang Linhai are not open, and some scenic spots such as Sijin Lacuo and Xincuo are similar, so choose the essence of it and turn it into a 2-day tour. Departure from downtown Lhasa at 7:00 am.




The total distance from Lhasa to Nyingchi is 409 kilometers. There are two routes, the straight north line and the curved south line, connecting different counties and towns. With the two-way opening of the Mila Mountain Tunnel on April 26, 2019, most of them choose the northern line, generally heading east along National Highway 318 or the Niyang River. 



I originally thought that the altitude of Lhasa is high, while the altitude of Nyingchi is low, and the journey from Lhasa to Nyingchi is easy, but in fact there are high and low. The average altitude of Mozhugongka County passing through is 4,000 meters, and the altitude of the Mila Mountain Tunnel is 4,774 meters. But because most of the time is in the car, the reaction is not very obvious. 









I have been on the road in the morning, and arrived at Gongbu Jiangda County at 11:30 to settle lunch.


The group meal standard is 30 yuan per person, 8 dishes for 8 people, with meat and vegetables, good taste, full food, and conscientious dishes.

Some roads are being repaired


 Along the way, I saw many warning signs such as "important water bodies, drive carefully", and passed bridges and rivers one after another.

Tibet is one of the provinces with the largest number of rivers in my country, and there are more than 100 rivers with drainage areas larger than 2,000 square kilometers. Jinsha River, Lancang River, Nujiang River, Yarlung Zangbo River and other major rivers all flow through here, of which the Nujiang River and Yarlung Zangbo River originate in Tibet. The Tibet Plateau is also a province with the largest distribution of international rivers in my country. The upper sources of the famous Ganges, Indus, Brahmaputra, Mekong, Salween, Irrawaddy and other rivers in Asia are all here. 

The Yarlung Zangbo River, originating from the Jema Yangzong Glacier at the northern foot of the Himalayas in southwest Tibet, has a total length of 2,057 kilometers. It is the longest plateau river in my country and one of the highest rivers in the world. The main tributaries are Lhasa River, Nianchu River, Duoxiong Zangbo, Niyang River, Palong Zangbo, Daque Zangbo, Jemayang Zongqu, Jiapa Zangbo, Guochangqu, and Nidoqu. Among them, the five with the largest drainage area The tributaries are Duoxiong Zangbo, Nianchu River, Lhasa River, Niyang River and Palong Zangbo. 


The main stream of the Yarlung Zangbo River is divided into three sections: the upper, middle and lower reaches. The upper reaches of the river, from the source Jema Yangzongqu to Lizi, Zhongba County, Shigatse City, are about 268 kilometers long, accounting for 13% of the total river length. The middle reaches of the river, from Lizi to Pai Town, Milin County, Nyingchi City, are about 1,340 kilometers long, accounting for 65% of the total river length. The downstream section, from Pai Town in Milin County to the exit point, is about 496 kilometers long, accounting for 24% of the total river length, and the water surface drop is 2725 meters.


From Lhasa to Nyingchi, the Yarlung Zangbo River is mainly a tributary of Niyangqu. In Tibetan, the river is called "Qu" and the lake is called "Cuo".


Tibetan areas attach great importance to animal protection. Look, the rare "Animal Passage Do Not Honk" sign in the plains. 




The Niyang River Dobut Bridge in Nyingchi is known as the "most beautiful bridge" on the Lalin Highway.



Watch a short video:


At 1:30 in the afternoon, 6 and a half hours after departure from the morning, we arrived at Kadinggou Scenic Area, the first official scenic spot of the second-day tour.

Kadinggou, also known as Gadinggou, is 24 kilometers away from Bayi District of Nyingchi City and has an altitude of 2980 meters. The mountain is dangerous and is a typical canyon landform. A 3A-level scenic spot, the main attraction is Tianfo Waterfall.





The drop of the waterfall is about 200 meters, and there is less rain in winter, so there is not much momentum. The reason why it is called Tianfo Waterfall is that there is a Jamba Buddha statue with a human face on the left side of the waterfall. Everyone looked left and right, and there was a person pointing at the side, and they felt a bit similar.


To be honest, there is not much to see here. I left after half an hour and went to the second scenic spot, Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon.







The most beautiful scenery is on the road.


Rodin said that the world never lacks beauty, what is lacking is the eyes to discover beauty. Some people say that this saying is outdated. The current situation is that the world never lacks beauty, but only lacks skillful hands who are good at PS. Let me tell you seriously, for Tibet, all the way is full of scenery, and PS is never needed, just for fear of your aesthetic fatigue. Do not believe? Just wait and see, please come with me—— 




On the way, we passed the Buddhist Palm Sand Dunes scenic spot.


The sand dunes are located in the strong wind outlet area on the north bank of the Yarlung Zangbo River in Tanniang Township, Milin County. During the dry season from autumn to late spring every year, the river sand exposed on the river bed is blown by the hurricane and accumulated here. Year after year, this unique landscape has been formed.



From a distance, the dust seems to be drifting with the wind.


Deepen your impression with a video:


Continue on the road, Nanga Bawa Peak is far away.

Namjagbarwa, in Tibetan, means "the spear that pierces the blue sky". In 2005, in the "Beauty Pageant China" selection activity organized by "China National Geographic", it won the first place among the top ten most beautiful mountains in China.


We first appreciate it from a distance, then go to the Grand Canyon scenic spot for a closer look, and finally the highlight is the sunset Jinshan.


Namjagbarwa is 7,782 meters above sea level and ranks the 15th highest peak in the world. The first 14 mountains are all peaks above 8,000 meters, so she is the highest peak of 7,000 meters. The most important thing to watch Namjagbarwa is the season. The rainy season is often clouded and foggy. The probability of seeing the whole picture from late October to January of the following year is very high. This time, I was fortunate enough to watch the majestic snow-capped sacred mountain and the coveted Rizhao Jinshan up close.






The Grand Canyon is a non-state-owned scenic spot, and half-price discounts are implemented in winter.











 Then take a car to Suosong Village, where there is a viewing platform, which is one of the best places to appreciate the Rizhao Jinshan.




Pay attention to this sign, this time I had the experience of being chased by wild dogs, so I have a deep memory of it, and I will mention it later.











It's really rare to see, let's reminisce through a video.



Turning back three times at one step, reluctant to leave.



The sky is full of stars, long time no see, I tried to take pictures with my mobile phone. Professional Mode - Streamer Shutter - Brilliant Star Trail. Because there is no tripod to fix it, the final effect can only be like this.


It takes about 3 hours from the observation deck of Suosong Village to Bayi Town, Nyingchi.


The dinner arrangement is Luhai Stone Pot Chicken, which has been praised for a long time. The key point is the stone pot, which is from a famous family and has unique craftsmanship. It is carefully polished with natural soapstone in Motuo County. Chicken soup is slowly boiled from free-range Tibetan chicken. Now that the traffic is so developed, these claims are doubtful. Of course, the chicken soup tastes good. After running around for more than ten hours a day, I am exhausted and have no high anti-entanglement. As long as I am a normal person, I will salivate at everything I see at this time.






Arrived at the hotel at 10:30pm. The altitude is less than 3000 meters, so I decided to be brave and take a bath. The key is to quickly dry your hair, and sure enough, nothing will happen, and you will wake up until dawn.



Continue the two-day tour and go to Basongcuo Scenic Area.


Bayi Town, Bayi District, the seat of Nyingchi Municipal Government, is a clean and beautiful town with mountains and rivers intertwined.


Bayi Street is particularly beautiful, and its modernization level is no less than that of towns in the Yangtze River Delta region.





Laohutan Hydropower Station on the main stream of Bahe River



Due to the limited geological conditions, the construction here is very difficult.


The communication signal along the way is very good, both in telecommunications and mobile, even in the tunnel. This is due to the country's public welfare positioning of infrastructure. Over the years, the state has vigorously implemented policies such as the village-to-village project and universal telecommunications services, so that even remote areas can share the fruits of development. A few days ago, there was a report that Wang Mianmian, an English teacher at Zhejiang Institute of Media and Communication, lost contact during a visit to the United States, causing a false alarm among the public. The reason behind this was that the mobile phone signal in the United States is poor. Many people feel that "developed countries are underdeveloped" after going abroad. One of the "slots" is that the mobile phone signal is too poor. Even in the city, the speed will be slowed down at least, and the car will be interrupted at worst, not to mention the suburbs, forests and other fringe areas. Statistics show that there are currently about 6 million 4G base stations in the world, and my country has more than 4 million, exceeding the sum of other countries. From this we can see the advantages of our system. Within a limited time, we can concentrate and allocate resources to the most urgent and important events, and to improve the quality of life of the whole people.


With the growth of financial resources, the central government has provided more and more support to border areas in recent years, especially for Tibet. The national roads and expressways here are all free of charge, which is an example.

Traveling in Tibet is very safe, as can be seen from the multiple security checks introduced earlier. Tourist vehicles are not allowed to be contracted by private parties, they all belong to the Tibet Transportation Industry Group Corporation, and the vehicle numbers are unified as "Tibetan AL××××".

In Tibet, the biggest risk is altitude sickness, mainly hypoxia and fragile ecology. The average altitude exceeds 4,500 meters, the average annual temperature is only -3°C, and the oxygen content in the air is less than 48% of sea level. The natural environment is extremely harsh. Due to "deep permafrost, low temperature, and lack of oxygen" and other reasons, once a sapling was planted, all of them were frozen to death in the second year. The Nagqu area once offered rewards for outdoor tree planting, and as long as the saplings survived for three years, they would be rewarded 100,000 yuan. Although the bonus later rose to 200,000 or 300,000, no one was able to get it. A common tree in the plain area is rewarded with 300,000 yuan, which shows how harsh the ecological environment here is. Therefore, when traveling in Tibetan areas, we must protect the environment, cherish resources, and be grateful for the fruits of others' labor.


Basongcuo, the only 5A-level scenic spot in Tibet's natural scenery category, has arrived.



Basongcuo means "green water" in Tibetan. Located in the high gorge and deep valley of the upper reaches of Bahe River, Bahe Town, Gongbujiangda County, with an altitude of 3480 meters, it is a famous sacred lake and holy place of the Red Sect. The surface area of ​​the lake is about 27 square kilometers, and the deepest point is 120 meters.


 The order of the tour is to take the scenic bus from the tourist center to the island in the middle of the lake, visit Cuozong Temple, see the Xuefeng Forest from a distance, and take a boat tour around the lake.










The lake is so green, like Jiuzhaigou Wucai Pond, emerald green, emerald green, or blue-green? The green is bright, the green is deep, and the green is too green to bear to leave.



Climb to the island in the middle of the lake, the ancient trees are towering, the temple is quiet, surrounded by mountains and water, sparkling.



The Nyingmapa Red Sect Cuozong Temple with a long history was built in the middle of the 14th century, presided over by the famous Nyingmapa monk Sangye Lingba. It adopts traditional stone and wood structures, and the halls, stupas, monk houses and other buildings cover an area of ​​about 2,000 square meters rice. After ups and downs and ups and downs, the building seen so far was rebuilt in 1994.


Buddhism is divided into three major schools: Southern, Northern, and Tibetan. Tibetan Buddhism is commonly known as Lamaism. In the middle of the 7th century AD, King Songtsan Gampo of Tibet married Princess Chizun of Nepal and Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty, and converted to Buddhism under the influence of the two princesses. At the beginning of the 15th century, the sects of Tibetan Buddhism were finalized. There are mainly Nyingma Sect (Red Sect), Kadam Sect (the predecessor of Sakya Sect), Sakya Sect (Flower Sect), Kagyu Sect (White Sect), and the later Gelug Sect (Yellow Sect). )Wait. 






This boundless green is intoxicating. Many people can't help but take pictures everywhere. Some travel companies even arrange photographers to follow them. Time slips away like this.


It's a pity that Basongcuo also has a viewing platform, which is the best place to take pictures of the island in the middle of the lake. Many people don't know it and miss it in vain.

Walk up 500 meters along the bus stop in the scenic spot, and you will come to the Dachera viewing platform.









Climbing high and looking far away, the lush island is like a gem, inlaid in the blue lake.




Mountains, lakes, boats, islands and trees are really picturesque. No wonder some people say that it is like "Little Switzerland".

Video at that time:





Looking around, there are only lonely families, and the group members are still competing for the beautiful scenery with their mobile phones and cameras on the island.



On the way back, I came across two leisurely yaks.









Lunch is still a combination of meat and vegetables, and what is rare is that there are precious green vegetables on the plateau.

The 2-day Nyingchi tour is coming to an end, and the Niyang River is still accompanying us all the way.





This road is really hard, getting up early is dark, the mountains are high and the water is long, but when I saw the afterglow of the setting sun sprinkled over the snow peaks, the yellow sand on the shore floated with the wind, and the emerald green lake water came into view, I felt that I had been running around for two days. value! Annoying high-reverse, go as far as you can.

[Day 5] Visit Lhasa Binhe Park, Qinghai-Tibet Sichuan-Tibet Highway Monument, Norbulingka, then Lhasa-Zhengzhou TV9909 (12:50-15:45), Zhengzhou-Nantong DZ6286 (20:30-22:10). 

I must praise Homeinn Neo's breakfast, which is quite rich and can be said to be at the level of a star hotel.



Today's return flight is at 12:50 noon. You can also stay in downtown Lhasa for a period of time, and arrange several scenic spots near the Lhasa River Water Conservancy Scenic Area, Qinghai-Tibet Sichuan-Tibet Highway Monument, and Norbulingka. Norbulingka doesn't open until 9:30, so go to the banks of the Lhasa River first.



As mentioned earlier, the Lhasa River is one of the five major tributaries of the Yarlung Zangbo River. With water, the city has aura.


One by one waterfowl roam freely, a quiet and peaceful scenery of the plateau water village.









The sunrise time in Lhasa is late in winter, and the sunrise is forecast at 8:36 today. There are mountains behind the Lhasa River, and it is estimated that the sun will not show its face until 9 o'clock.


Waiting, waiting, the sun came out from behind the mountain, radiant and full of life.




The Qinghai-Tibet Sichuan-Tibet Highway Monument is located on the banks of the Lhasa River. On December 25, 1984, it was built to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Qinghai-Tibet Highway and the Sichuan-Tibet Highway, and to remember the glorious achievements and great sacrifices of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. The name of the monument was inscribed by Hu Yaobang. In October 2019, it was selected into the list of the eighth batch of national key cultural relics protection units.

The Sichuan-Tibet Highway starts from Chengdu, Sichuan in the east and ends in Lhasa, Tibet in the west. Construction started in 1950 and it opened to traffic in 1969. It consists of 318 National Highway, 317 National Highway, 214 National Highway, and 109 National Highway. It is the most dangerous highway in my country. It is divided into north and south lines, the south line is 2115 kilometers long, and the north line is 2414 kilometers long. The Qinghai-Tibet Highway starts from Xining, Qinghai in the east and ends in Lhasa, Tibet in the west. Construction started in 1950 and it opened to traffic in 1954. The total length is 1937 kilometers, and the average altitude of the whole line is above 4000 meters. The Qinghai-Tibet Sichuan-Tibet Highway demonstrates the "two-road" spirit and the "old Tibet spirit" of the plateau road builders who are not afraid of hardship, death, hardships and obstacles, and blood and sweat. It is a valuable asset that inspires future generations to continue to struggle.




The full text of the inscription is transcribed as follows:

At the beginning of the founding of the People's Republic of China, in order to achieve the great cause of the reunification of the motherland, enhance national unity, and build the southwest frontier, the central government ordered the liberation of Tibet and the construction of Sichuan-Tibet and Qinghai-Tibet highways. The Sichuan-Tibet Highway starts from Chengdu in the east and was built in April 1950;

The Qinghai-Tibet Highway starts from Xining in the north and started construction in June 1950. The two roads have a total length of more than 4,360 kilometers and were opened to Lhasa on December 25, 1954.

The roof of the world has a vast territory, high cold and hypoxia, and snow-capped mountains. The Sichuan-Tibet and Qinghai-Tibet roads cross the Nujiang River and climb Hengduan, and cross the sky and Kunlun. The rivers are turbulent and the peaks and mountains are steep. The 110,000 Tibetan and Han military and civilian road construction workers worked hard and worked hard to overcome many natural dangers. More than 30 million cubic meters of earth and rock were excavated and filled, and more than 400 bridges were built. Wuyi is cold and hot, and it is extremely difficult. Three thousand people with lofty ideals died heroically, and the deeds of a generation will go down in history forever. Over the past 30 years, the state has invested huge sums of money, and the two roads have been rebuilt several times. The Qinghai-Tibet Highway was built with asphalt pavement. Plateau Highway, an ancient miracle. It is famous all over the world and praised by five states.

The majestic plateau is connected by two roads. Beijing and Lhasa are closely connected. Brotherhood, closeness. The roads in Tibet extend in all directions, the economy and culture are prosperous, and the appearance of urban and rural areas has changed.

The Tibetan and Han compatriots, singing and dancing gracefully, praised it as "Rainbow" and called it "Golden Bridge". The future of New Tibet is bright, and people of all ethnic groups move forward hand in hand.

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the opening of the two roads, I would like to thank the central government, remember the heroes, set stones in Lhasa, and commemorate them forever.

Here, the author of this article encountered a wild dog, and the reminder of "stay away from pigs and dogs to prevent biting" immediately appeared in front of the viewing platform of Namjagbarwa Peak. what to do? run, run!

How much hatred, how much hatred, has been chasing behind, and even chased so far?

Rush to the last scenic spot, Norbulingka.

The Tibet Museum opposite the Norbulingka is being closed for renovation.



Norbulingka means "Baby Park" in Tibetan, and it is the place where Dalai Lamas spent their summers and governed. It was first built in the 1840s. After more than 200 years of expansion, it has formed three groups of palaces, Gesang Phodrang, Golden Phodrang, and Darden Mingyaw Phodrang. It has 374 houses and covers an area of ​​360,000 square meters. largest garden.


Due to limited time, according to the staff's suggestion, we only hurriedly visited the two palaces of Gesang Phodrang and Golden Phodrang. I didn't savor it in detail, but I was impressed by the elegance, meticulous workmanship and grandeur of the garden. No wonder it is called the Summer Palace of Lhasa.




Gesang Phodrang has three floors, the first floor is the scripture hall, and the front is the stone yard; the second floor has the Arhat Hall, the Dharma Protector Hall and the Scripture Reading Room; the third floor is the place where Dalai meets monks and lay officials.









The palace in the east has a golden roof and stone walls, solemn and solemn; the forest area in the west has towering ancient trees and winding paths. Halls, attics, rockery pavilions, trees, flowers and plants, pools and fences, it is a summer resort with a combination of Tibetan and Chinese.





The itinerary plan of the Tibet tour has come to a successful conclusion. Come with excitement and return with satisfaction.


At this moment, there is a song "Moonlight in the City" lingering in my mind, which is very suitable for the mood of reluctance:

Somewhere in every heart, there is always a memory that will not linger

Every night, somewhere, there is always the deepest thought

Thousands of changes in the world, love divides the sentient beings into two ends

If the heart knows the direction of the consonance, even if it cannot be with you day and night

The moonlight in the city illuminates the dream, please warm her heart

Seeing through the gathering and parting of the world, can you have more happy clips

The moonlight in the city illuminates the dream, please guard her side

If we can meet again one day, let happiness fill the whole night


Take a taxi to the boarding point of the civil airliner. The urban area of ​​Lhasa is not big, and taxis generally do not use meters, and 10 yuan is enough. The difference with the mainland is that the driver can take other guests by the way.






The security check at Lhasa Airport is very strict, and all people have to take off their shoes for inspection.

During the waiting process, I learned that due to the smog at Zhengzhou Airport, the incoming and outgoing flights were affected. Fortunately, the scheduled flight from Zhengzhou to Nantong has already taken into account uncertain factors, and the interval is 5 hours. Under normal circumstances, it is necessary to reserve enough time for connecting flights. It is best to arrive in Xi'an the night before and leave the next morning, just like when you come here, so you can feel at ease. If you are connecting on the same day, you must reserve at least 3 hours. If the plane is delayed for a long time and the follow-up itinerary is disrupted, it will be troublesome.





Goodbye, Lhasa; Goodbye, Tibet.







Arrive home safely.
