Western Sichuan – garden of nature

The western Sichuan plateau is located on the eastern edge of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, transitioning from the first step to the second step of China's topography. Stretching from the 7,556-meter summit of Mount Gongga to the hundreds of meters in altitude on the eastern edge of the Qionglai Mountains, this region boasts the most complex and diverse terrain and climate in China. Here, you can find plateaus and mountains, snow-capped peaks and marshes, glaciers and rivers, canyons and lakes, meadows, and forests, as well as yaks, sheep, and blooming flowers. Western Sichuan also possesses a unique culture and charm distinct from that of Tibet, known as Kangba Tibetan culture. The journey along the 318 National Highway that crosses through western Sichuan is a dream for many Chinese self-driving enthusiasts. Watching the sunrise in western Sichuan with loved ones is an aspiration for many. It can be said that there is no other place in China more suitable for travel than here.
