西游记（18）：在康定雪山下，遇见最美的彩虹 ｜Journey to the West (18): Under the snowy mountains of Kangding, meet the most beautiful rainbow
This trip, since entering Guizhou, only saw the blue sky and white clouds in the morning of Xinduqiao in Kangding. The rest of the time was overcast, and it was not too much to be poured three times a day.
Xinduqiao is a fascinating “photographing paradise”. It is located at the intersection of the south and north lines of the National Highway 318. It is a picturesque paradise. The magical light, the innocent grassland, the curved creek, the golden cypress, the rolling hills, the Tibetan villages scattered, the cattle and sheep graze peacefully… The plains of western Sichuan bloom beautifully. We are Xinduqiao, which we went to in the late summer. It is said that the Xinduqiao in autumn is the most beautiful. If there is a chance in the future, we must go again in the fall.
In the building on the right side of the picture below, there is a prayer wheel that is rotated by water.
In Xinduqiao, you can see the main peak of Gongga Mountain, the king of Sichuan, which is 7556 meters away. I don’t know if this is what we saw is Gongga Mountain.We rarely met local people along the way, so there is no way to confirm.
The mountains are densely colored, also known as the wind horse flag. It is said that when the Buddha was sitting under the Bodhi tree and holding his eyes and closing his eyes, a strong wind blew and blown away the scriptures in the hands of the Buddha. Under the influence of the wind, they are broken into thousands of pieces, brought to the world by the wind, and brought to the hands of the hard-working people who are suffering. Everyone who got the fragments of the Buddha’s scriptures got happiness. In order to thank the Buddha for their gifts, people made a triangle with colored cloth, printed the scriptures and images of the Buddha, and hung it in the place where the wind blows, in order to save the blessing and pray for peace.
远处的雪山，被厚厚的云层挡住，若隐若现，应该就是雅拉雪山。雅拉雪山，藏语全称为“夏学雅拉嘎波”（意为东方白牦牛山），系 中国藏区四大神山之一。位于 四川 甘孜 州 康定 、 道孚 和 丹巴 三县的交界处，海拔5884米，与它 西北 方向的墨尔多神山遥遥相对。山顶终年积雪，是康巴地区一座著名的神山，雅拉河即发源于此。
After the Xinduqiao, the northbound line is 37.3 kilometers to reach the Tagong Temple. Did not enter the temple, directly into the Tagong grassland. The Tagong Prairie is the most famous grassland in Ganzi Prefecture.”Tagong”, Tibetan means “the place that Bodhisattva likes.”
The snow-capped mountains in the distance are blocked by thick clouds. If they are looming, they should be Yala Snow Mountain. Yala Snow Mountain, the Tibetan language is called “Xia Xue Yala Libo” (meaning Dongfang Baiji Niushan), one of the four major mountain mountains in China. It is located at the junction of Kangding, Daofu and Danba counties in Ganzi Prefecture, Sichuan Province, at an elevation of 5,884 meters, which is opposite to the north of the Mordo Mountain. The snow on the top of the mountain is a famous mountain in the Kham region, and the Yala River originated here.
People living in such tents don’t know how to spend the winter?
Near Kangding Airport, Altitude 4200+，the temperature outside the car is 4 degrees. We were going to look for the Stingcuo Lake, known as the “Kampa Plateau Pearl”, but it was not found after a few laps. But near the airport, there is a blue sky and a rainy day. The snowy mountains in the distance are looming in the clouds. Such a beautiful view is enough to comfort us.
When I was about to drive away, I turned back inadvertently, but let us meet the most beautiful rainbow. Crossing the horizon, the beautiful lips like the sky smiled.
After Kangding Airport, on the way to Chengdu, we drove through gravel roads, suffered from mountain road punctures, and encountered explosives and stones to repair roads. But the most beautiful scenery has been shared, so let me end the Journey series with a beautiful rainbow map. Thanks to everyone who watched and upvote it! May be good forever!
