In Balagzong, there is a native farmer entrepreneur who does not forget his hometown when he gets rich.

Vice Chairman, General Manager and Party Branch Secretary Snadingzhu of Zong Tourism Development Co., Ltd.

In the past, Bala Village was a poor and backward place. There were no roads, no electricity, and no shops in the village. The agents outside the village used yaks to transport tea, salt and other daily necessities through the only narrow and dangerous post road leading to the village. They exchanged the villagers' medicinal materials and local products by barter. Every time the agents came, the whole village was just like the New Year. The children had been looking forward to it for a long and wanted sugar.

When he was a child, Snadingzhu grazed and ran through many places in Bala Village. The magical natural pagodas, snow-capped mountains, glaciers, and lakes left a deep impression on him; the beautiful alpine pastures, canyons, forests, and villages gave him Childhood brought endless joy. As a farmer entrepreneur who came out of the mountains, every time Snadingzhu remembered that his hometown was still hidden in the Shangri-La Grand Canyon and the villagers were still living a hard life, he was determined to do what he could to change the poverty and backwardness of his hometown.

"Foolish Old Man Moves Mountain" to Build Asphalt Road on Cliffs and Cliffs

At the end of 1999, Snadingzhu set up Shangri-La County Balagzong Eco-tourism Development Co., Ltd., combined with the resource advantages of his hometown, decided to build a village road and create Balagzong Park, so as to develop tourism to drive the people of his hometown to develop and become rich. He ran between the state, county, and township governments and management departments at all levels. When he saw the leaders and related staff, he said: "Although my hometown is backward, it is a sacred pure land that the world yearns for. It is rich in tourism resources and beautiful. Can you be hungry next to the'golden rice bowl! I want to work hard to build a tourist road and build a park to unveil the mystery of Balagzong and show its beauty to the world. I also hope that through hard work, I will lead the folks in Bala Village to get rid of poverty and become rich."

On September 12, 2004, the construction of the highway from National Highway 214 to Barra Village officially started. In order to ensure the quality of the project and save construction funds as much as possible, Sna Dingzhu stuck to the front line of the project and organized the construction by himself. He spent all his savings to create the Balagzan Scenic Area. For more than 10 years, with the spirit of Yugong moving mountains, he has built an asphalt road with a width of 6.5 meters and a length of 35 kilometers for his hometown under the cliff. In 2007, Sna Dingzhu raised more than 700 million yuan to erect a 34.8-kilometer 10kV power transmission and transformation line from the top of the bridge to Barra Village, which solved the problem of production and living electricity for more than 50 households in the scenic area and the four villages along the line, namely, Gangshui, Shuizhuang, Nalang and Barra.

In 2009, Snadingzhu raised another 1.28 million yuan to build a bridge on the Gangqu River. The time for Barra people to reach Shangri-La County was shortened from 3 days to 1.5 hours, which greatly facilitated villagers' travel. Through years of hard work, the superior ecological environment and tourism resources of the hometown have been effectively protected and rationally developed. The Shangri-La Grand Canyon has brought the entire village of Barra, which is poor, backward, and closed, to the gentle slope of the canyon., To build a beautiful Tibetan-style well-off new village and happy home, and become a model of local new rural construction.

Benefit the village, build the hometown

In order to help the villagers in their hometown get rid of poverty and become rich as soon as possible, in the construction of the scenic spot project, Snadingzhu subcontracted the project to the villagers. Some young people who had worked in other places for many years saw that they could make money at their doorstep and came back to participate in the construction of the scenic spot. For this alone, each villager has an annual income of 5 to 60000 yuan. The human resources of the hometown have been effectively utilized, the company's expenditure has been saved to the greatest extent, and the project quality of the scenic spot has been reliably guaranteed. Through hard work, the villagers have not only obtained real economic income, but also enhanced the sense of responsibility and ownership in building their hometown. After the scenic spot was put into operation, Snadingzhu absorbed more than 160 people from the village and neighboring villages to work in the scenic spot through training, so that they could have a stable monthly salary income. Snading Pearl also encourages villagers to develop aquaculture, pays to send them to other places to participate in skills training and learning, and supports villagers to set up pig farms and chicken farms. The company is responsible for technical guidance and purchase.

As Barra Village is far away from the county seat, the problem of villagers' difficulty in seeing a doctor is very prominent. Snading Zhu has set up a special window for the villagers in the clinic of the scenic spot. The villagers and the employees of the company are treated equally and only the cost of medicine is charged. In case of families in need of medical treatment in other places, Snadin will send a car to escort or help them free of charge. According to incomplete statistics, in recent years, he has paid more than 100,000 yuan for medical expenses for villagers and 180000 yuan for needy students near the scenic spot.

Show your true colors before the catastrophe

The "8 · 28" and "8 · 31" earthquakes caused serious damage to the scenic spot and more than 400 people were trapped in the scenic spot.

At the first time of the earthquake, he decisively sounded the earthquake relief assembly call, concentrated the trapped people in the open parking lot of the reception center of the scenic spot, immediately organized the count of the number of trapped people, promptly convened a meeting of relevant personnel, organized the establishment of a temporary headquarters for earthquake self-rescue, and served as the commander, taking it as his bounden duty to ensure the life safety of the trapped people. He did not wait or rely on it. While organizing the company's machinery and equipment to rush through the road, he directed the staff of the scenic spot to transfer the company's food, oil, meat, vegetables, tents, blankets, sleeping bags and other daily necessities to safety. Ensure that the trapped people have food to eat and tents to live in, and arrange the scenic spot police to patrol on duty in turn to prevent accidents.

Due to the continuous aftershocks and boulders blocking the road, the rescue team was unable to enter the scenic area for a long time. Seeing that the living materials in the scenic area were about to be in short supply, Snadingzhu mobilized all the staff to dig up the potatoes planted by the company, and went to the reception center of the scenic area to pull the fat pigs raised by the company to the temporary resettlement site for slaughter, and distributed the fresh pork to the trapped personnel to the trapped personnel to ensure that every trapped personnel could eat and wear warm on the mountain. In order to lead everyone out of the predicament as soon as possible, Snading Pearl organized scenic spot employees and construction team members to repair roads from inside to outside. After several days of continuous fighting, it finally connected with the access road repaired by the armed police rescue team on the afternoon of September 5. When Sna Dingzhu told everyone that the rescue team was heading for the scenic spot, everyone cheered.
