Preface-Encounter Balagh Sect

I stand closest to heaven

STAND UP I touch the stars

STAND UP dream is not a fantasy

As the song goes, stand.Shangri-LaThe place closest to heaven, looking up at the starry sky at night, it seems that the dream is no longer far away. Blue sky, green water, white clouds, snow-capped mountains, starry sky and grassland can give you everything you want to relax. The busy urban life makes you tired. You always want to escape from reality and go to the depths of the secret land. Come to Balag Zong. This is the most shining pearl on the snow-covered plateau. This is the paradise in the Buddhist world. This is the heaven and earth. Away from the hustle and bustle, to the natural oxygen bar here to breatheFreshAir, let's have a walk-and-go, relaxing trip.



Make a wish-under the bodhi tree

Buddha said: Looking back 500 times in the previous life, it was only in return for passing by in this life. After a short meeting, I fell in love with this place, which shows that my fate with Balagzon has been looked back more than 500 times.


"Bodhi is not a tree, and a mirror is not a platform. There is nothing in the first place, so where is the dust." In the world where there is Buddha, there is Bodhi. A cliff close to the Tibetan ecological hotel in the scenic spot has grown for thousands of years.PhoenixBodhi TreeThe branches spread hundreds of meters above the canyon, which is very sacred. Every day, many devout Buddhists come to this tree to offer hada to pray for good weather in people's lives. Bodhi in the "Sanskrit" called "Jaeshi", by the devout Buddhists as a holy tree, extremely revered. Legend has it that Buddha Sakyamuni made a positive fruit under the bodhi tree.


There is a branch like bergamot, full of vicissitudes of life, five fingers clearly, stretched out to the stone cracks in the wall holding the U-shaped valley, guarding the homes of the people in the mountains for generations, shining through the ages.16.JPG

This millennium phoenix bodhi tree bears fruit four times a year. It only bears fruit and does not blossom. It is very magical.
Hiking-Canyon Boardwalk


Shangri-LaThe Grand Canyon is also called "Balagzong", which is located more than 80 kilometers northwest of Shangri-La County. Because one end of the canyon is called "Shangge" and the other end is called "Lira", it is named Shangri-La Grand Canyon. It is said that the "Blue Moon Canyon" mentioned in the book "Lost Horizon" is here. The canyon is magnificent, with gorges in the gorge, gorges on the gorge, criss-crossing, and gorges connected to each other are its typical geomorphological features.

The typical vertical three-dimensional climate makes the vegetation here rich and diverse, with all kinds of exotic flowers and plants growing, adding a touch of color to the already beautiful gallery.

Listen-Tibetan Songs and Dances


Tibetans are born to be song and dance elves. There is a saying in the local area: if you can walk, you can dance, and if you can talk, you can sing. It is true that every Tibetan friend you meet can come for a while, and remember to leave here at last.Shangri-LaWhen I was in the county seat, the Tibetan driver did not forget to show us his singing voice while driving.
