Conch Valley Scenic Area

Hailuogou is located in Moxi Town, Luding County, Sichuan Province, on the eastern slope of Gongga Mountain. It is a very high mountain area on the eastern edge of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Located at the foot of Gongga Snow Peak, Hailuogou is famous for its low-altitude modern glaciers. Shining modern glaciers pour down from high valleys; huge ice caves and steep ice bridges make people like crystal palaces in mythology.

Especially the unparalleled Big Ice Falls, as high as 1000 meters, about 1100 meters wide, more than ten times larger than the famous Huangguoshu Falls, magnificent. Conch Trench is the lowest modern glacier discovery area in Asia, with an elevation of 2850 meters. Its ice waterfall is 1080 meters high and 0.5 meters wide to 1100 meters wide. It is the highest ice waterfall ever found in China. The trench contains large flow boiling hot and cold mineral springs, large area of virgin forest and high glacial erosion peaks, a large number of rare animal and plant resources, and the golden and silver mountains are magnificent. On October 9, 2016, the National Tourism Administration issued the "Red and Black List" for 11 holidays, and the Hailuogou scenic spot was listed as the best tourist service scenic spot. On February 25, 2017, it was newly promoted as a national 5A tourist attraction.

Historical evolution

Tang Dongjiebufa, a great achievement of the post-Tibetan Shangba Garga School in history, traveled to India, Han Dynasty and other places of Kangzang. Knowledgeable, wise and skillful, he built 128 Buddhist pagodas and 128 bridges in Tibet, Ganzi and Qinghai Tibetan areas. Tang Dongjiebufa, the founder of Tibetan opera, founded the Yao Wang Temple in Tibet and wrote many historical stories of opera singing. He has profound knowledge in medicine and invented Baiwan, a Tibetan medicine which can cure all kinds of diseases in internal medicine, and Hongwan, a Tibetan medicine which can cure epidemic plague. He died in KangDistrict at the age of 125 and was one of the longest-lived Tibetans. He is an outstanding and influential architect, Buddhist, dramatist, historian of Tibetan medicine and master of bridge. All his life, he has made great achievements and made great contributions to the future generations of the sacred Buddhist figures. King Jebfa of the Tang Dynasty left his footprints in Hailuogou, Yanzigou and Dadu valleys and built the old sites of temples, Manidou and Buddhist pagodas.

One day in the mid-summer of 1705, King Jebfa of Tang Dong came to the Luding Bridge Bridge construction site and saw that craftsmen were at a loss to cross the river with iron ropes. He instructed craftsmen to use bamboo ropes to pierce short bamboo barrels and tie them up with bamboo ropes to slip through the barrels. The craftsmen hang the rope, which is more than 40 feet long and weighs more than 2,000 kilograms. When King Jebfa saw that the craftsmen could not pull the rope keys, he took out his treasure conch and blew three times. The magical conch voice ghost made the magic conch slip away and safely crossed 13 rope keys.

After the completion of Luding Bridge, King Jebfa of East Tang took the road to build a pagoda on the west slope of Fanxueshan Branch of Hailuogou. Living in a glacial megalithic rock cave in a dense forest at night in Hailuogou, I chanted Buddhist Sutras in front of the cave in the morning and evening, kneeling in front of Gongga Shenshan. When I blew conch, birds and animals in the forest surrounded the cave to listen to his chanting. After King Djiboufa left, birds and animals still gathered around the rock cave according to the time when King Djiboufa blew conch. At the top of the cave, trees grew out, flowers and plants gathered among all living beings. One day King Tang Dongjiebufa gave his disciple Tuo Meng, saying that he had lived in the cave boulder in Hailuogou, and had been named "Conch Lingshi" by Gongga Mountain magic. The deep valley he had traveled through was sealed with conch, his treasure. The names of Conch Trench and Conch Lingshi are thus named.

geographical environment

position

Hailuogou is located in the southeast of Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, and on the eastern slope of Gongga Mountain. It is a very high mountain area on the eastern edge of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It is 296 kilometers away from Chengdu.

Located at the foot of Gongga Snow Peak, Hailuogou is famous for its low-altitude modern glaciers.

Geology and geomorphology

To the east of the main peak ridge line of Gongga Mountain in Hailuogou is a steep high-mountain canyon with obvious relief. The Dadu River roars and rushes with narrow water depth and steep cliffs. In the horizontal distance less than 30 kilometers up to more than 6500 meters, the formation of the world's rare Grand Canyon.

Causes of formation

The formation of Gongga Mountains has undergone the geomorphic processes of Pliocene leveling period, early Pleistocene mountain lake basin period and deep valley period since the Middle Pleistocene.

The ancient leveling period (3.4 million years ago) was the formation period of the planation surface in China, and Gongga Mountain was only the Eryu Mountain which was more than 1000 meters high.

The transverse movement of the mountain lake basin during its development period (3.4 million to 1.3 million years ago) led to the disintegration of the planation surface in China. A series of fault-depressing Lake basins, Xigeda Lake, were formed at the eastern foot of Gongga Mountains and south of Gongga Mountains. With the uplift of mountains, the lake basin continued to subside and accumulated strata hundreds of meters thick.

The Yuanmou movement ended the period of regional Xigeda Lake deposition and turned into river action, forming deep valleys such as Dadu River, and developing glaciers for many periods in the alpine region.

In the process of Gongga Mountain evolving from Eroded Yushan on the ancient planation plane to extremely high mountain, neotectonic movement is the controlling factor, while Quaternary glacier plays the role of landscape intensification.

Glaciation

Hailuogou Glacier, also known as No. 1 Glacier, is the longest of 71 glaciers in Gongga Mountain. It covers an area of 16 square kilometers, with a maximum altitude of 6750 meters and a minimum altitude of 2850 meters. It has three steps along the longitudinal direction: grain snow basin, the breeding ground of glaciers; large ice waterfall, 500-1100 meters wide and 1080 meters high, which is the largest and most spectacular glacier waterfall found in China so far. It reaches 6 kilometers into the primeval forest and forms a unique landscape where glaciers and forests coexist. Hailuogou has the strongest glacier activity. In the movement of glaciers, the glacier arc arches, ice caves, ice ladders, ice gates, ice lakes and ice peaks are formed.

Glacier ablation

Hailuogou glacier is in a period of intense melting, the main melting period is from March to November and from May to October every year. The melting intensity of glaciers is 8 centimeters per day, and 9.3 millimeters per day, calculated from the correlation between melting and temperature, according to the observation of ice surface at an altitude of 3600 meters (21 June-1 July 1981). The annual average ablation depth (absolute ablation) of ice tongue area is estimated to be 10-15 meters.

Glacier No. 1 moves faster, so its supply is more adequate. According to the observation of ice surface topography in two cross sections across glaciers (October 1988-May 1989), the ice surface height in the middle part of the tongue decreases by an average of 1.5 meters annually, that is, 85% of the melted ice has been recharged by new ice. On the whole, however, the amount of glacier melting in Conch Trench is larger than the amount of recharge, resulting in the following results:

The tip of glacier tongue retreated significantly from the plane position of glacier tongue of Glacier No. 1, and retreated more than 3 kilometers compared with the ice advance before 1580. Since the early 1930s, it has retreated about 500 meters. From 1966 to 1982, the average annual retreat was 25 metres, from 1983 to 1985, 15 metres, from 1985 to 1990, 16 metres and from May 1990 to June 1991, 14 metres. The elevation of the tip of the ice tongue also moved up from 2850 metres in 1966 to 2940 metres in 1991.

Group glacier melting is one of the important conditions for glacier landscaping. With the intense melting of glaciers, different shapes appear. The peculiar glacier landscape has high ornamental value.

climate

The coldest temperature in Hailuogou is January, the lowest temperature can reach - 12 degrees, the daily average temperature is 3.9 degrees; the highest temperature is August, the daily average temperature is about 13 degrees, the highest temperature is 22 degrees, the annual average temperature is 5 degrees, the snow thickness is 35 centimeters.

Characteristics of scenic spots

Five Characteristics of Conch Valley

First, Rizhao Jinshan. Located at the foot of the mountain, Hailuogou is surrounded by 45 guard peaks with an elevation of more than 6,000 meters. The peaks are covered with snow for thousands of years.

Silver shines. Every day when the weather is clear and the East is white, the brilliant sunshine rises, and the golden light shines from the long sky directly at the guardian peak. In an instant, dozens of snow peaks are covered with a golden dazzling light, which is magnificent and magnificent. This is the famous "Sunshine Golden Mountain".

Second, glaciers pour. Most glaciers in the world are located at higher altitudes, but at lower altitudes in Conch Trench, glaciers can be seen pouring down from high canyons. Especially the unparalleled ice waterfall, which is more than 1000 meters high and about 1100 meters wide, is more than 10 times larger than the famous Huangguoshu waterfall. It is magnificent and has thousands of scenes.

Thirdly, Snow Valley Hot Spring. A snow-capped area nearby, open-air hot spring pool steam rolling empty, so that the original forest of green trees and strange flowers and grass hazy, shadowy. How romantic it is to enjoy snowflakes dancing in hot natural hot springs. The highest water temperature of Hailuogou hot spring is more than 90 degrees, and then the pools drop down one by one. The most suitable pool water for human immersion varies from 45 degrees to 35 degrees.

Fourth, virgin forest. The forest area of Hailuogou is 70 square kilometers. Walking slowly along the mountain road around Hailuogou, visitors will be attracted by the changeable plant landscape beside them. In the jungle, lovely animals such as macaques, pandas, antelopes and red-bellied pheasants are often dimly visible.

Fifth, the Tibetan customs of Kangba. Hailuogou is located in Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Sichuan Province. It has vast plateau land and raises Tibetan children in 18 counties of Ganzi. Colorful costumes, different Tibetan villages, moving songs and dances, strong Kangba Tibetan customs and the mountains and waters here are integrated.

Main landscape

Glacier landscape

1. Glacier Landscape

Glacier landscape such as glacial foliation, glacial cracks, glacial faults and folds, glacial streaks, ice avalanches, etc.

Glacier No. 1 overflows from a grainy snow basin and forms a large ice waterfall along the steep slope of the ice bed along the front of the basin. Glaciers on ice waterfalls are super-stretching currents that are in a state of collapse and frequently occur ice avalanches and avalanches. With the continuous movement of glaciers, ice avalanches on ice waterfalls continue throughout the year. If the granular snow basin is a reservoir of ice formation and tunneling, the great ice waterfall is like a crusher of glacial ice, and the foot of the glacial waterfall is a new foundry of glacial structure.

2. Melting Landscape

Melting landscapes such as glacier cups, ice wells, glacier shafts (connected with subglacial rivers), ice columns, ice caves, ice bridges, lakes, glacial rivers, subglacial rivers (glacial gate holes), ice gushing springs, glacial milk, etc. At the end of the glacier tongue, the surface outlet of the subglacial river is the glacier city gate tunnel (the tunnel under the ice cliff, like the city gate), and the underground outlet is the ice fountain with a flow of 10 cubic meters per second (October), which is the mainstream water source of the conch ditch. The location of the glacier gate hole and the ice spring moves upstream continuously with the retreat of the tip of the ice tongue, which is one of the scenic spots of Conch Trench.

3. Compound Landscape

Composite landscape is formed by the superposition of two or more kinds of functions, such as glacial arc arch, glacial fold, ice mushroom, subglacial tunnel, etc. Hailuogou glacial arc arch belongs to the type of arc arch indicating the age. In the process of ice and snow re-deposition at the foot of the Great Ice Falls, the summer deposits are black due to melting and polluting, and the winter deposits form a black-and-white glacial zone (layer). With the movement of the glaciers, it is formed by a downstream arc bending. The calculated 140 m/year glacier velocity of 14 pairs of arc arches in the range of 2 km basically coincides with the observed velocity (180-90 m/year).

Landform landscape

1. Glacier eroded landforms

Conch Valley develops a set of typical and spectacular ice erosion landforms, such as ice erosion valleys, suspended valleys, valleys, corner peaks, edge ridges, ice ridges, ice buckets, grain snow basins (ice cellars), polished surfaces, notches, grooves and so on, especially in the valley, pyramid corner peaks, polished surfaces on a large scale.

- Valley in Valley

New glaciers developed in glacial erosion valleys of late Gongga period, and glaciers of late Gongga period developed in glacial erosion valleys of early Gongga period, while modern glaciers still lie on the bottom of glacial erosion valleys of new glacial period, cutting down successively from old to new, forming the landform of Taogu. The pyramid-shaped angle peaks in Gongga Mountain area are characterized by pyramid-shaped ice erosion peaks. The ratio of tower height to tower base is 1:2. There are more than 20 ice erosion pyramids with high dry height standing in the Hailuogou watershed alone, and there is much snow. Under the blue sky and dark green forest belt, it is a scenic spot of high mountains.

- Valley wall polishing, notching, grooving

The glacier polished surface on the wall of quartz schist Valley on both sides of the middle section of glacial tongue of Glacier No. 1 is 20 meters (south bank) and 50 meters (north bank). It is covered with different inclination combination marks, brackets and grooves, even reverse (upstream) marks and grooves. The largest groove is 1.8 meters deep and 3.8 meters high.

2. Geomorphology of Glacier Accumulation

The glacial depositional landforms in Hailuogou and Guri areas are well preserved by the moraine dikes of the late Gongga glacial period and the Holocene glacial water depositional landforms.

Late Gongga glacial side moraine dike occupies both sides of the upper and middle reaches of Hailuogou valley. The length of the dike is 10 km (left bank) and 5 km (right bank), and the height of the dike is 50-150 meters. There are Moraine Lake (Shuihaizi) and a large number of boulders (such as large rock nests, large rock baskets, rock baskets, etc.). The levee is covered by primitive forest and is a forest resort of Conch Valley.

Holocene Icewater Platform

The Moxi Platform at the mouth of Conch Trench is composed of 120 meters thick glacial water, glacial flood and gravel deposited by glacial debris flow. The platform was originally a valley ice level plain (accumulated in the early Holocene), which was formed by the Moxi River and its tributary Yanzigou from both sides with a length of 10 km and a width of 0.2-1.2 km following the rapid rise of Gongga Mountain (middle Holocene).

- Periglacial geomorphology

There are permafrost in the ditch (the lower limit is about 4900 meters above sea level), seasonal permafrost, thawed debris slope, thawed debris flow, snow-eroded ancient ice bucket, snow-eroded depression and ice mound stone rings on the tongue, etc.

Forest landscape

The forest area of Hailuogou is 70 square kilometers, most of which are primitive forests. It is characterized by strong biodiversity and abundant ornamental plants. Thirty-eight species of rare plants have been identified in the ditch, including one national first-class protected plant, seven secondary protected plants and 13 tertiary protected plants; 150 species of wild vertebrates, including six national first-class protected animals and 22 second-class protected animals (Liu Zhaoguang et al., 1985; Yu Zhixiang et al., 1988). The vast majority of these rare animals and plants are monotypic genera, subspecies and endemic species. The Gongga Mountain area, including Hailuogou, is one of the most preserved areas of ancient and primitive biological species in China. It is called the "refuge" of animals and plants in the Quaternary Glacier Period by botanists and zoologists, and hundreds of ornamental plants in the gully, including Magnolia, Rhododendron, Orchid, Primula and Gentian.

There are more than 100 kinds of flowers such as flowers, lilies, snow lotus, wild osmanthus, dozens of epiphytic plants such as rhododendron, epiphytic trees, more than 100 kinds of super-large plants, tree groups on drifting gravel, and dozens of community types such as vegetation zoning, evergreen and seasonal plant communities.

Natural Band Spectrum Landscape

The complete vertical natural band spectrum based on subtropical zone is one of the landscape characteristics of Conch Trench. Among the geographical elements such as climate, soil, vegetation and landform, the vertical differentiation between climate and vegetation is the most obvious and intuitive.

If 4-5 friends rent an off-road car or a van, they can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Siniangshan, Hailuogou, Danba and Kangding.

Tips

1. Conch Valley is a high altitude area. It is not suitable to exercise vigorously, drink alcohol and eat more vegetables and fruits in order to prevent mountain reaction. Common medicines should be prepared, preferably with small oxygen cylinders.

2. Driving in winter, please pay attention to the ice in the mountains, preferably with anti-skid chains.

3. Fireworks are strictly prohibited in scenic spots.

4. The scenic spot has strong sunshine, strong ultraviolet rays and strong sunlight reflection. For long outdoor activities, please wear sunglasses. Apply anti-frost to protect skin.

5. The temperature difference between day and night in the scenic area is large, and the glacier climate is changeable. Please bring enough warm and cold-proof clothing and prepare commonly used medicines.

Natural disaster

Avalanches - perennial avalanches mainly occur at the basin margins of the grain basins of Glacier No. 1 and Glacier No. 2, especially at Glacier No. 1 Great Ice Falls. In July 1988, an avalanche originating from the eastern slope of the main peak and skiing over the Great Ice Falls, amounting to 500,000 cubic meters, caused one person to suffer. Seasonal avalanches originate from the winter snow cover of the ancient ice buckets and depressions near the watershed at an altitude of more than 4000 metres. Generally, they are small in scale. They mainly occur in the area of yellow avalanches in Lion Rock-Ma Rigang and Qingshi-Ban, with the lowest descent reaching the front of steep slopes at an altitude of 3000-3200 metres.

Glacier landslide - occurs on both sides of the tip of the glacier tongue. The sliding body is the glacial-alkali layer of the late Gongga Period. The glacier melting reduces the height of the glacier surface, which leads to the instability of the foot of the slope and causes the slow sliding of the slope.

Glacier Flood - On July 26, 1989, a flood broke out in Glacier No. 1, with a flow rate of 10 Hunan seconds and a flow rate of 1,156 square meters, which destroyed the River Valley Tourist routes.

The mixed debris flow of ice, snow, melting water and rainwater - the branch ditch of Hailuogou, Changcaoba ditch and Huangcao gully. The hot water ditch and the Yanzigou ditch outside the ditch day have occurred many times of mixed debris flows of ice, snow, melting water and rainwater, which are the main types of disasters.

Ice debris flow, which occurs in the left gully of glacial tongue of Glacier No. 1, is a special type of ice-snow rain debris flow.

Gourmet features

Folk cuisine

In the old urban areas, most people had three meals a day, three meals in busy rural areas and two meals in peacetime. Most of the staple foods are corn bun, steamed noodles with potatoes, even dregs, and little meat on weekdays. There is a famous saying that "eat enough meat, unless the Spring Festival kills you". Pingba people mainly eat rice and wheat noodles. After liberation, especially from the late 1970s to the 1980s, the diet changed greatly, and the main grain changed from coarse to fine, with rice as the bulk.

The Yi people used to like to eat Dangdao meat (cooked ready to eat), canned wine, and several people sat around. The cans were filled with straw to suck. It was called "stick wine". Now they drink bowls of wine instead. The meat is also cooked, which is quite different from the old ones.

In the local mountainous areas, maize is the main food, followed by potato; Pingba is supplemented by rice and wheat flour, and legumes are used as vegetables. In the early 1950s, yam, cotton wolfberry, brown flowers, oil-dried cakes and lacquer noodles were eaten to feed the hunger. After the 1950s, corn flour was the staple food in most mountain villages, rice was the main food, pork was the main meat, followed by cattle, sheep, chicken, duck and fish. Since the 1980s, the number of meat products has increased, and the variety of vegetables has increased greatly. Some people say that pickles and pickles are made. Seasonal snacks: Duanyang Zongzi, Salt Egg, Garlic, Mid-Autumn Moon Cake, Zongba in early October, Tangyuan in Spring Festival and mashed grains.

The "nine bowls" were set for the red and white wedding feast. The rich people drank and ate stir-fried vegetables first. After drinking, they served large bowls of vegetables at meals. Later, they developed into ten bowls, which were arranged in the shape of 4, 3, 2 and 1 pyramids. Nine big bowls in the countryside are pork piers, two bowls, balls, steamed vegetables as main dishes, crisp meat, noodles, kelp, fungus and so on as side dishes. Temple fairs, pilgrims and monasteries use vegetable oil as raw materials, mainly fried tofu and melon potatoes.

There is a traditional custom of cured bacon in the territory of cured bacon. Pigs slaughtered every year after the winter solstice are usually cut into three to four kilograms and weighed one by one. They are covered with brown leaf hanging rope in a large pot or jar, covered with layer by layer of powder and salt, salted for 3 to 5 days, removed and hung in an indoor or earthen building. After being salted, they are ignited with walnut shell and cypress leaves, placed on meat, smoked, dried in a ventilated place, and stored after being air-dried.

Pastry folk New Year, the farmer boiled Yumai bait sugar, stir-fried Tianmai with sugar to bind into cakes, called Tianmai cakes, and then squeezed into strips, and then sliced. Corn bait sugar is processed into strips and spread with fried noodles for storage, which is called hemp sugar. The noodles are made of peanut kernels, walnut kernels, sesame seeds, fried Tianshu and ground noodles, then cut into middle finger size particles. After drying, they are stir-fried with stove ash or sand in the pot. The gray sand is removed, the sugar is glued, and then the Tianshu is "dressed" and mixed evenly. The noodles are called flowers and fruits. Rich families make high-grade pastries with clear oil, wheat flour, glutinous rice, sesame, eggs, sugar and other raw materials, which are not available to ordinary people.

In the old days, ordinary people went to the street to sit in teahouses and make cups of tea to chat. At home, they usually paid attention to eating "old shade tea" (coarse tea), a pot of water boiled in rough tea can be drinked one day. Poor mountain villages collect hawthorn leaves and store them for boiling water. Farmers have the habit of drinking raw water. Rich families use fine tea to make bowls of tea, and black and white happy events are all big pots to cook tea for guests. Wherever there are streets, there are several simple teahouses with wide pavement. Teahouses open all day long. Teahouses use storytelling, chess and drumming to attract customers. Sometimes teahouses become places for dispute evaluation or business negotiation. Along the way, there are also pedestrians who cook tea in teapots and give alms. Most teahouses were closed after 1958. By the end of the 1970s, it had partially recovered. In the 1980s, it spread all over urban and rural areas. Teahouses have entertainment methods such as TV, chess, cards, comic books, books and newspapers. They also sell a variety of drinks.

Pig leg

A famous dish of fragrant pork leg is delicious and delicious. It is a delicious food for festivals and guests. Every winter, every household slaughtered the fat pig. In the past, most of the pigs were tied up by the four feet of the pigs. They opened a hole through the chest with their knives. They reached into the chest to break the cardiopulmonary junction. After killing the pigs, they slaughtered the knives, repeatedly burned the pig's hair with hay, and then cut them off.

Nine bowls

In the rural areas of Chengdu Plain, every family that marries, has children, builds houses and so on should invite relatives and friends to gather for a big meal, commonly known as eating nine bowls. As for the origin of the term, it was also because Chengdu used big bowls to drink during the Republic of China. The reason why the banquet is called "nine bowls" is that there are usually nine bowls of dishes per table. Its characteristics focus on steamed vegetables, originally known as the "nine major dishes" of steamed vegetables. Namely: fried steamed meat, steamed ribs, steamed beef, steamed turtle, steamed chicken, steamed duck, steamed elbow, sanded meat, braised white. The contents of the nine bowls are usually made into Sichuan dishes by farmers with ready-made chicken, duck, fish, meat, eggs and seasonal vegetables. For example, Hibiscus egg, steamed chicken and duck, steamed miscellaneous sauce, steamed white, braised white, powdered steamed meat, steamed elbow, Gongbao chicken, chives, fish fragrant slices, white oil liver slices, pepper and hemp chicken nuggets, hot-fried crisp, sweet and sour ribs, white juice, sauce braised elbow, ginger hot nest chicken, steamed duck slices, etc., are all representative dishes in the "Jiudou Bowl". Of course, farm-produced sausages, bacon and sauce meat are indispensable. Up to now, Shuangliu County near Chengdu still has such a song, "Nine Bowls Song": "The master invited me to have lunch, nine bowls of Shenggusu placed. Fried fish stomach with fish liver in first bowl and Fritillaria braised with chicken in second bowl. Three bowls of lard Braised Tofu and four bowls of carp and bird's nest braised. Five bowls of golden hook with vinegar and six bowls of gold gourd. Seven bowls of piers are numbered, eight bowls of fat are purring. Nine bowls of clear soup gargle your mouth and make your food and drink crisp.

Double pepper and miscellaneous paste noodles

Double Pepper Fried sauce noodles local snacks. This kind of snack is already a kind of local food culture, not just filling the stomach between three meals, pursuing the level of not hungry stomach. Can highlight the local material and social life style, the face with slippery, tendons, light, Wang, Ma, spicy, fragrant and other characteristics, eating flexible and smooth, double Pepper Fried sauce noodles are characterized by long noodles, uniform thickness, fragrant miscellaneous sauce, oil glossy, fragrant and thick but not greasy. The taste is smooth and spicy. Especially in nine cold winters, a bowl of noodles dripping with sweat, dispelling dampness and appetizing. It's authentic Sichuan flavor.

Specialty
