The wild Western Sichuan is definitely one of the bucket-list destinations in China for outdoor lovers, the “Soul of Shangri-La” with an extremely dreaming wonderland. West of Chengdu, green tea becomes butter tea, gently rolling hills morph into jagged snowy peaks and the Mandarin nǐ hǎo! gives way to Tibetan taste deleg! This is Western Sichuan, the Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.
On this tour, you'll drive along 318 National Highway, the TOP 1 most beautiful self-driving route, into “the last pure land on our blue planet”, feasting your eyes on a dizzying agglomeration of sacred snow mountains, pure blue alpine lakes, immense grassland, pristine forest, rich Tibetan Buddhist cultural heritages, and discover China's best-kept secret where explorer Joseph Rock wanted to visit again and again.
🌟An in-depth exploration across the wildland of Western Sichuan, full of undiscovered natural wonders and unique off-the-beaten-track experiences.
🌟Make a pilgrimage to the three sacred snow mountains in search of “the last pure land on our blue planet”; Hike to the fabulous Milk Lake and Five Color Lake to marvel at the unbelievable charms of such holy sceneries.
🌟 Eye-satisfying discovery of the “Soul of Shangri-La” at Yading Nature Reserve in a leisure hiking way with bus and horse riding; Immerse in the idyllic pasture with grazing cattle, layers of multicoloured dense alpine forest, clear winding streams, and beautiful temples.
🌟Drive on the 318 national highway throughout your journey connecting the middle part of the country to Tibet. It's said to be the most beautiful highway in China and a TOP 1 buck-list self-driving tour route.
🌟Get lost in the undisturbed Cuoka Lake, a secret fairyland hidden in the forest. Take a stroll, drink tea and meditate in what looks like an oil painting consisting of green mountains, emerald lakes, and mysterious temples.
🌟Experience Tibetan Culture in the Hidden Monastery and Village. Feel the harmony between nature and the local Tibetan people and the spirit of Tibetan Buddhism.
🌟Wonder in the vast Tagong Grassland with snow-capped magnificent Yala Mountain as a backdrop. Enjoy the harmonious scene with numerous yaks and sheep grazing on the fertile golden-yellow grassland decorated with flourishing seasonal wildflowers under the blue sky.
