Let's Go Camping and Stargazing!

By Cheer |  release time:May 30th,2018

As early summer approaches, temperature in Chengdu begins to rise steadily, and the soul of Chengduese starts to stir up.

What to do with the leisure time? How about camping?

Camping and stargazing, what a refreshing summer picture! 


For the campsites around Chengdu, let's see what Zev, an American senior hiker, recommends.




Reason for recommendation:

"The designated campsites are large and relatively flat along the way, which are the pastures and homes of yak herders. At night, the smell of fresh piles of horse and cow manure is blown away by the crisp air, and you can fall asleep to the dinging of horse bells."

Reminder from Zev

The Muli-Yading thru-hike is considered the "classic" Rock trek that adventure junkies challenge themselves with. It's a grueling 4-6 day hike, starting at an altitude of 2,300m in dense and lush forest, which grows along with rivers of glacial waters up to barren ridges of snow-capped mountains, crossing over half a dozen 4,400-4,700m high mountain passes, and ending at the three divine mountains of the Yading scenic area. Rain, snow, heavy fog, altitude sickness, and burning sunlight are all to be expected. While strong legs certainly help, the most important trait to have is a strong will.

Panlong Valley, the waterfall group near Chengdu, is located in Xiaoyu Cave. Here, the mountains and greenery create a quiet environment.

It's quite like a Scandinavian fairy tale world.
