Main attractions

Glacial landscape

For thousands of years, Dagu glacier is like a girl living in a pavilion, which has never been known to the world. It was not until 1992 that Japanese scientists discovered her hidden in the mountains and mountains by satellite. In August of the same year, she traveled across the ocean to Heishui and studied her for a week, It is found that it is the glacier with the lowest altitude, the largest area and the youngest in the world; it is the nearest glacier to Zhongcheng city; it is the most beautiful glacier in the glacier area so far.

virgin forest

The original forest of Dagu glacier is well protected and has a strong primitive flavor. Compared with the original forest in kalonggou, it is better than the original forest. From ancient ice park to Glacier, the first step is to go through the primeval forest of Dagu glacier scenic area. When you walk through the forest, you can see the tall and straight trees layer upon layer and block out the sun, which makes people feel quiet and mysterious. In the forest, tens of meters high, several thick trees can be found everywhere. The color is emerald red. The soft moss and thick pine needles spread to the deep of the dense forest.

A stream, flying flowers splash jade, Huan playing the most primitive notes, people relaxed. Through the gap between the woods, you can see a huge mountain spring gushing out from the opposite cliff, forming a waterfall more than 200 meters high and more than 50 meters wide. If you stand at the bottom of the waterfall and look up at the waterfall, it looks like a white curtain woven by tens of thousands of crystal clear water drops. It falls from the sky and emits drizzle like water mist, which makes people feel as if they are in the sea, sky and mist, so it is named It is called "Lingyun waterfall".

Fairyland on earth

Along the Heishui River, the green mountains on both sides of the river are green and the air is fresh. After passing through the ancient Tibetan village, you can see the towering ancient trees and the customs of mountains and valleys. If you go further, a wide meadow will appear in front of you. You can see white, yellow and pink fresh flower cloth all over the meadow. You can feel the fragrance of flowers when you stand on the meadow , refreshing. When the weather is clear, you can overlook the glacier on the meadow. The three glaciers are like a curtain hanging on the sky. They are integrated with the blue sky and white clouds. The hall is wonderful. After crossing the meadow, we soon arrived at the ancient ice park at the foot of the glacier. The park is surrounded by mountains, with beautiful scenery. The primeval forest, alpine meadow and mountain stream are all beautifying her, which reminds people of Tao Yuanming's peach garden and fairyland in the world.

Dongcuo riyuehai

Out of the Rhododendron forest, over a ridge, the olive green dumbbell shaped Kecuo Riyue sea lies quietly there. Haizi is 1500 meters long and 300 meters wide. Gazing at the sun moon sea, she is like a affectionate girl's silent eyes, bright and quiet, which makes people feel excited. It is the light that stops here, the sound disappears here, the mountain wind blows occasionally, and the lake surface ripples. Only then can she feel the existence of life.

Alpine Rhododendron forest

Through the vast forest sea, at an altitude of 3800-4200, it is another classic of Dagu glacier scenic spot - the mountain Rhododendron forest of thousands of mu. From May to June of the year is the best time to enjoy the rhododendrons. The red and white petals are very noble and elegant against the background of green leaves, just like a basin of natural bonsai. When the mountain wind blows, the azalea sways with the wind, as if to welcome guests from afar. People are surprised, but they can't help but be convinced by its tenacious vitality.


Starting from the sun moon sea in Kecuo, we climbed over the mountains composed of a large amount of maroon granite rocks and arrived at Glacier I. The crescent shaped body of the glacier leaped into view, and the snow accumulated over the years covered its ice cold body. The ice cliffs at the front edge of the glacier were indistinct, and countless large pieces of ice were floating in the blue ice lake Ice blocks of different shapes and sizes are like floating clouds in the sky. As we approach the glacier front, the pleated and elegant line ornaments are like tree rings. The lines are beautiful and clear, as if they tell the development and formation process and the vicissitudes of hundreds of millions of years.

Under the sunlight, the glacier is green in white and blue in green. It is crystal clear and eye-catching. It intersects with the exquisite and tranquil ice lake, which is moving. Standing on the top of the glacier, looking into the distance, the snow capped mountains are rolling up and down on the sea of fog, which is very spectacular and makes people feel heroic. When the clouds disperse and look down at the clouds, dozens of Malachite blue glacial lakes are announced around the glacier, surrounded by azaleas all over the mountains, which is beautiful and spectacular. The "Lingyun waterfall" is like a huge hada dedicated by the hospitable Tibetan people to distinguished guests, adding more holiness and auspiciousness to the beautiful scenery. The meadow full of flowers in the distance seems to be a colorful ground at the foot of the glacier The carpet is so exquisite that it makes people feel relaxed and open-minded. When people are searching for the legendary Shangri La, tourists prefer to believe their eyes and feelings! It's Shangri La, the haunting shangri la!

Glacier II and glacier III of Dagu glacier are located on the left side of glacier I and are connected side by side with glacier I. the two glaciers extend to the top of Dagu snow mountain, which is very spectacular. There is also an ice cave on glacier II, which is unfathomable. Standing on the edge of the ice cave, you can see the ice ridges and icicles with different shapes and crystal like crystal. It is amazing. Around the Dagu glacier, there are many rare animals, such as golden monkey, bison, Zhangzi, argali sheep, Liangzhu bird, etc. they can often be seen walking leisurely on the ridge or playing in groups, adding infinite vitality to the ancient glacier of 100 million years.
