Millennium Buddha

Millennium Sleeping Buddha. Millennium Sleeping Buddha Landscape in Yeliguan Town South. It is formed by a mountain body about ten miles from east to west. He lay on his back at a relative height of nearly 400 meters. Foot and legs, chest and abdomen, clear outline of the face, posture stretching and broad, look calm. Wearing a high-crowned Buddha cap, eyes closed, eyebrows and beards one by one can be distinguished, wearing Dai Zhong yellowing robe, foot boots. This sleeping Buddha is entirely the creation of nature, without any artificial decoration. Looking at the attitude seems to be on the back of the sky closed eyes, its shape in the morning glow is still lifelike, moonlight is both physical and spiritual.

Chibi Valley

Red Cliff Valley. Chibi Valley is five kilometers west of Yeliguan Town. This is the unique world of the creator in Yeliguan Scenic Spot, which is full of lush green. It intends to emerge bare rocks in the surrounding areas or in the shade of thick or light, not a cave in the sky. Red as its clothes, the walls like its carcass, but he is not a shy girl, but with the gods, Buddhas, ghosts, lions, tigers and pythons connected to the splashing valley. In front of the Chibi Valley lies Yemu River, with its tail stretching northward into the Baishishan Mountain in the eastern and Western meanders. Up to 20 kilometers deep. A small stream at the bottom of the valley, both walls are covered with red glutenite. Tens of millions of years of wind and rain erosion have created strange shapes on both walls. Some are like red screens cut from rocks, with bright and clean pillars and pleated mantles; some are like lions and tigers coming out of the mountains, pedaling rocks and roaring; some are like monks stopping on cliffs and chanting sutras, dressing mountains; some are like boa constrictor moving about, with different postures. Let the pedestrians swim among them, reverie endlessly.

Tourist guide

When you sleep in tents on the grasslands in summer, you must burn bonfires. Some anti-altitude drugs should also be prepared. Gannan weather is changeable, pay attention to the rain and dust protection of photographic equipment.

Delicious food

Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture has many typical Tibetan flavor foods, mostly beef and mutton, rice, barley noodles. There are restaurants opened by the Han nationality in the area. Generally, Sichuan flavor is the main dish, and pasta is the basic dish. There is a kind of local pasta, water rarely adapted to nomadic needs, usually relatively dry, although very suitable for the journey as dry food, but must be accompanied by adequate drinking water, otherwise it is difficult to swallow.

Get accommodation
