Wish - Under the Bodhi Tree

Buddha said: 500 times of looking back in the past generations, in exchange for passing by in this life. The short side of the relationship, I fell in love with here, we can see the fate of Balaguer Zong, more than 500 times look back.


"Bodhisattva has no tree, and a mirror is not a stage. There's nothing. Where's the dust? In the world with Buddha, there are Bodhi. On a cliff near the Tibetan Eco-Hotel, there are thousands of Phoenix Bodhi trees growing on the cliff. The branches spread hundreds of meters above the canyon, which is very sacred. Every day, many devout Buddhists come to this tree to offer Hada's blessings and pray to bless people's lives in good weather. Bodhisattva in the Sanskrit is called "JueShu", which is regarded as a sacred tree by devout Buddhists and is highly respected. Legend has it that Buddha Sakyamuni made good fruit under the Bodhi tree.


There is a branch like a Buddhist hand, writing vicissitudes of life, five-pointed, stretching into the cracks of the stone holding the wall of the U-shaped valley, guarding the mountain Bara people's homeland for generations, the light is eternal.16.JPG

This Millennium Phoenix Bodhi Tree bears four fruits a year, only bears fruit, does not blossom, and is extraordinarily magical.
Hiking - Canyon Trestle Road


Shangri-La Grand Canyon, also known as "Balag Zong", is located more than 80 kilometers northwest of Shangri-La County Town. It is called Shangri-La Grand Canyon because of its name "Shangri" at one end and "Lila" at the other. It is said that the "Blue Moon Canyon" mentioned in the book "Lost Horizon" is here. The gorge is magnificent, there are Gorges in the gorge, there are Gorges in the gorge, criss-crossing, Gorges connected is its typical geomorphological characteristics.


2.5 kilometers long Canyon wooden trestle road cut in the mountainside, extending downstream along the Gangqu River, walking on the trestle road tour, like a continuous Canyon gallery.29.JPGRivering water beats against the stone walls of the canyon with clear texture. In good weather, Gangqu River can experience drifting projects.31.JPG

Practical Travel TIPS

1. Snow Mountain is a divine mountain. You can't point at it with one finger. You need to point at it with your palm and your palm facing up.


2. Plateau climate is dry, skin is easy to sunburn, mouth is easy to crack, to visit please do a good job of sun protection.


3. Buses in scenic spots are usually equipped with oxygen tanks in case of emergencies. If you have friends with high resistance, please take Hongjingtian and other drugs to prevent high resistance in advance before departure.


4. Temperature difference between morning and evening is big, so we should do a good job of cold protection. Weather forecast in mountainous areas is not very accurate, raincoats are also necessary.


5. There are many detours on the road from Shangri-La County to the scenic spot. It's easy to get carsick. Remember to take carsick medicine.  

6. Pay attention to safety while hiking in the canyon and to falling rocks at any time.
