Tibet, seeing the direction along the way

Spread the love

Tibet. I finally set foot on the territory that I want to fill most. Whether it’s climbing the high-altitude Everest or the winding mountain road or the devout worship at Barkhor Street, this unreachable mystery gives us a heartfelt yearning. The beauty of Tibet can only be described as “the beauty of the lack of oxygen”, perhaps because the air is thin, we can feel the preciousness of life and the beat of the heart here, and a belief is maintaining our yearning.
    The quiet and magnificent landscape and the piety of the Tibetans have given Tibet a mysterious color. All outsiders are yearning for this, and people are proud of their ability to get involved in this territory. Nowadays, Tibet has become a unique tourist attraction in China. For many travelers, traveling to Tibet is a test and question for themselves. This is irreplaceable anywhere. Going to Tibet is like getting a medal for travel, a medal facing your heart. The people who come to Tibet to play are roughly divided into three purposes: chasing beauty, finding faith, and purifying the soul. In fact, Tibet does not allow you to have the feeling of transcending the world. It can only make you understand that in such an environment, there is still life in bleak, a perseverance, a belief.
    Thousands of miles have come here, and if you just look at some of the sights, you can’t see the true Tibet behind the mystery. Only by integrating into the life of the local people, trying to live with the locals, walking around the streets and alleys, and sincerely communicating with the locals, you can thoroughly feel the meaning of the return to Lhasa. – Let us find the depths of the soul that were originally in the distance. I am so fascinated in every corner of Tibet. I am here to be drunk and oxygen for the quiet landscape. I just walked quietly, but I saw the direction along the way. I am here to “get rid of oxygen” and will soon open this mysterious Tibetan territory.
    Barkhor Street – the reincarnation of the faith
    Everywhere I go, I will visit the local market, because only the market reveals the way life is. When I came to Lhasa, I had to go to the Eight-Road Street. As a famous turn-by-turn road in Lhasa, the Tibetans called it “Holy Road”, and the streets were preserved with the original features of the ancient city.
    Whether it’s worship or excursion, people of all kinds express themselves here for faith orThe attitude of the ceremony, the monks who took the wheel, but the most eye-catching people are the long-headed people. Although the roads are handed over here, but in the main street, there is still a wide road. After all, there are not a few Tibetans who have long roads. They carry simple clothes, some wear gloves, and some set of two talc, because of the long-term contact with the ground, the body is ruined, unkempt, but the perseverance in the eyes is always the same. I can only resonate with them and feel the purity, piety and calm. I can’t express my feelings at the time. I can only silently admire those people who are above the flesh and deliver their hearts to faith, only for spiritual practice.
    The deep and mysterious hidden in the Tibetan culture is the best interpretation of the world’s yin and yang. The decoration and manners of every pilgrim show the souls of thousands of states. This is a siege that exists for pilgrimage. Some people abandon everything, just to find the light of one inch. Of course, there is no shortage of falsification, but people often feel generous to help when they see such a scene. It’s not wrong to be impressed by what you think is right. Maybe a little help can change some of the status quo, so that every pilgrim can find a place where the soul is placed.
    Along the way, the most moving picture is a father who took his daughter and bowed his head. The little girl looked 4-5 years old. The original clear face was already a big face, and her face was sweaty. Afterwards, a stain was opened on the face. I don’t know where they are coming from, where are they going, or just licking their heads on this street? True and false is no longer important. I have long been a long-term leader, even if it is an adult, it is not necessarily enough to eat, not to mention such a little girl, her heart is already stronger than I imagined. Passers-by have put some money into her small bag, hoping that the money will support them to continue their pilgrimage or improve their lives. When she licked her head, I also carefully placed my admiration and affection.
    At a young age, the apron on the body has been wiped out of the original white by the ground. Fortunately, this time and again, there are fathers’ companions and companionship of faith.
    There is also a little girl, tired and can’t help but cry, the road people have come to comfort, I can’t help but wet my eyes through the viewfinder. Even though I am an atheist, even though many things are not so meaningful or even cruel to me, but they are not the same, perhaps only this time and again can only test them through God, and finally get all the beauty of the world. happy.
    The most prosperous place on Barkhor Street is the Jokhang Temple.
    Has a history of more than 1,300 years,
    The Buddha statue of Sakyamuni is enshrined inside.
    It has the supreme status in Tibetan Buddhism.
    In front of the temple, the crowds continued, the incense continued, people prayed devoutly on the bluestone board, and they thought about it in their mouths. They left their own support, and the incense of the butter lamps grew bright, so that the Holy Spirit would stay here.
    In fact, eight corridors are not as big as imagined. Generally, you can turn around in 15 minutes, usually three rounds before leaving. Many elderly people live their lives every day. This is the carrier of the combination of secular life and sacred faith. They went out late and went shopping with a prayer wheel. Although they were negotiating with the world on the street, they were always communicating with the gods in their mouths.
    For them, the prayer wheel that is held every day is the most authentic. This is the way to communicate with God and is the only belief in the world.
    The old buildings welcome a new group of tourists every day, but the old ones are the ones who turn around. As long as the sunrise and sunset run as usual, and the pale moon is still on the Dongshan, then the faith will accompany everything here, forever.
    Whether it is a long head or a prayer, it is a way of practicing Tibetan Buddhism. This simple and difficult way to insist is to tell people that the so-called sincerity, love, and kindness are only between ordinary thoughts. As long as you are willing, as long as you have faith in your heart, everything you do will be answered. The easiest thing to have in the world is yourself, but the soul of oneself is the hardest to own. This way of practicing is to deliver everything to the Buddha and the gods. When you touch the ground, you can clearly see yourself.
    Rent a set of Tibetan clothes and follow the devout people to the Barkhor Street. You can better integrate into the living conditions of the locals. There are a number of Tibetan clothing rental shops on Barkhor Street. The price is usually calculated on an hourly basis. The cheapest style starts at 40 yuan per hour. The more expensive the style is, the more expensive it is. The most basic characteristics of Tibetan costumes are fat waist, long sleeves, big squats, right squats, long skirts, boots, braided hair, gold and silver beads and jade jewelry. As a tourist, there is no need to set a whole set. Choosing some styles with simple styles will be more suitable for your own temperament. The necessary headwear and props are also essential. Of course, these are all extra charges, so a whole set of lines The price is not cheap, but the money is not too good for the photos.
    If you only stay in Barkhor Street for a short time, you may only be a passer-by. Only as a follower of a belief can you experience the vicissitudes of the city and the persistence from the heart. In the days of Lhasa, I have been to Barkhor Street three times, and each time I have different feelings, bothThe believers turned to the street together, or they sat down on the bench in the street with the old people. The touch here was always the same.
    “50 RMB” punch card
    The Potala Palace, as a sign of 50 yuan, has finally seen it! It is the highest, largest and most complete ancient palace complex in the world, with palaces, castles and monasteries. The architectural art of the Potala Palace combines the elements of temples and palaces, the sacred and solemn appearance, which astounds the aesthetic appeal of the building.
    The Potala Palace is built on the foothills of the mountain. It consists of two major buildings, the White House and the Red Palace, and is integrated with the surrounding buildings. The Red Palace is located in the center and is the Dalai Lama’s Lingta Temple and other types of Buddhist temples. On both sides is the White House, which is the main venue for the Dalai Lama’s living and political activities. These buildings were built in different periods, gradually built on topography, layered and covered, but unified and integrated. Finally, the overall appearance is very spectacular. This is the aesthetic achievement of national architectural art. .
    However, because there are restrictions on the number of people entering the palace every day, it is a luxury to go in and visit. Unless you go to the queue a few days in advance to buy tickets or buy high-priced tickets from the ox, it will turn around like me. Just a lap.
    I am wearing a Chinese costume and it is necessary to attract the attention of the locals. Presumably, when Princess Wencheng arrived in Tibet, it was also the case. This is a cultural exchange between the Han and the Tibetans.
    Although I couldn’t visit the palace, I turned around a few laps and found several very good free shooting spots.
    1. Zongjiao Lukang Park, located behind the cloth palace, has become the best place for the reflection of the filming palace because of a lake in the park. It is suitable for shooting in the morning. It is not obvious when we arrive here in the afternoon.
    2. The artificial lake in front of the Potala Palace, where you can also take a reflection of the Potala Palace, and there are some trees around it as a front spot.
    3. The Potala Palace Square, located directly opposite the Potala Palace, has the disadvantage of too many sundries and needs low angle shooting to avoid it.
    4, Yao Wangshan viewing platform, located in the west side of the cloth palace, this is my favorite shooting point. The best time to shoot here is at sunrise, and the sun rises from the right side of the cloth palace.
    In Lhasa in September, it was only at 8 o’clock in the morning, but in order to grab a plane, as a person who refused to do early birding, I was rushed to the scene half an hour before sunrise, but there was no flight at this time. It turned out that the uncles came to occupy the place as early as five o’clock. Fortunately, my uncle’s composition needs are different. The uncles are shooting the morning glow. I am shooting the radiant Potala Palace, so after they are removed, I still have a replenishment position. As a photographer who shoots a scene, fighting with the sky and fighting with people must be experienced. But it is a pity that the clouds of this day are too thick, the sun’s rays have not completely penetrated, and it has not reached the “brightness” I want.
    At the beginning of a busy day, the traffic on the road gradually increased, the clean road reflected like a mirror, and the walls of the Potala Palace changed with the change of natural light, and each time you could see different colors.
    After taking the scene you want to shoot, of course you have to be a portrait. The Potala Palace was built in the Songtsan Gambo era. It has been around 1300 years ago. It is said that Songtsan Gambo is a three-story nine-storey building called the Potala Palace, which is the Princess of Wencheng in the Tang Dynasty. . Although the history is not there, I can wear Han costumes to perform a cross-over interpretation.
    The Potala Palace is facing a wide road. At night, the cars come and go, and the flowing lights form a streamer around the dazzling Potala Palace.
    Take the classic angles and finish the scene. Don’t forget to eat a bowl of authentic yak yoghurt at the yogurt shop next to the cloth palace. This yoghurt workshop is a well-known “net red shop” in the local area. It started as a shop frequented by locals. Later, many cycling parties and backpackers came here to punch cards, and the wall was filled with intriguing stories.
    The yoghurt here has a wide variety of tastes ranging from 10 yuan to 18 yuan. As a girl, the most recommended is the rose flavor. There is no smell of my imagination, and the milk is extremely rich. According to the small partner, in the early days, the yoghurt here was named after “sour”. Without half a bowl of sugar, it was impossible to get rid of it. I don’t know.Does the boss think that sugar is going to be deprived by everyone? Today, the yogurt has no original acidity, and three tablespoons of sugar is enough to make a bowl of delicious.
    After eating the yogurt, don’t forget to print a photo on the wall in the store. It is also a sincere visit.
    First sight of plateau lakes
    There are a lot of places to play around Lhasa. After the body adapts to the air here, you can start to explore the intoxicating natural scenery. Located about 70 kilometers southwest of Lhasa, Yanghu Lake, also known as Jasper Lake, is one of the three holy lakes in Tibet. The journey from Lhasa to Yanghu is about two hours. Before arriving at the lake, most of the cars will stop at the Gangbala Pass at an altitude of 4,990 meters. Here you can clearly see a blue-blue tie that runs through the mountains. It is like a sapphire set in the mountains. The blue of Yanghu Lake is a quiet blue, mysterious hair, so that people can not see through.
    The water source of Yanghu Lake comes from the snow water around the Nyainqentanglha Mountain Range. There is no water outlet. The inflow of snow water and the evaporation of nature reach a strange dynamic balance. The lake water evolves into ever-changing blue with the change of light, but they It is a seamless one, as if it is a complete jade, standing still in the gap between the mountains, it is not the blue expressed by the water, but the blue of the crystal.
    Because the altitude of the pass was too high and the wind was fierce, we couldn’t get through the headache for ten minutes. We hurriedly evacuated and came to the lake at a relatively gentle altitude. It began to show a faint blue, and the blue sky and white clouds clearly reflected. Among them, the sun shines on the lake and sparkles.
    Although the time to reach Yanghu Lake is at the strongest noon, the lake at this time is the bluest time of the day. You can’t see the bluest sheep lake in the morning or in the evening.
    The beauty of Hanfu is unmatched by the traditional costumes of other countries. It comes with a kind of custom and matches the lake scene. I don’t want to be armed.
    At the lakeside, I walked through the paper umbrella, and the picture instantly switched to Jiangnan. It was as if I was going to practice the white snake of the Jinshan Mountain. I only walked for the world, but I stayed at the lake.
    There are always yaks waiting for you by the lake. This little child who is playing in the lake, because of business, was summoned to ashore.
    It is still very scary to contact such a yak. ​​The sharp horns are easy to poke into the body, so it is still necessary to be guided by the yak master to ensure safety.
    When you leave the lake, you can drive along the road around the lake. When you reach the height, you can overlook another view that is different from the mouth of the mouth. That is, the whole village and the sheep lake are together. The lake is still as smooth and jade-like as the emerald, and the twists and turns spread to the distance, without a trace of waves, as if standing between the mountains, the distant snow peaks over the holy lake. Here, or volley to look at, or shallow lake surface, such as illusion, trapped in it, not in love with the dust.
    Transportation: Charter or take a 1-day tour organized by local travel agency in Lhasa to Yanghu.
    Tickets: 40 yuan / person
    Duration of play: one day
    Nam Co – the snowy mountain of the holy lake, the transition between blue and white
    Nam Co, which is the three holy lakes in Tibet, is also in the vicinity of Lhasa, but it is farther away. If you want to travel to and from Namu for a day, you must be prepared for getting up early. Nam Co is the first god lake in the eyes of believers and is a famous Buddhist shrine. Every major event, believers gather here to perform ritual worship. For believers, everything can be transferred. As long as they are given sacredness, they can rely on their own beliefs. When the event is over, the Namu Lake is full of Mani heaps that are blessed by evil spirits. When the believers pass by, they will always cast a stone and leave their own message.
    Before starting to come to Namco, the little friend said with a lingering fear that the only time in this life was in Namu. Compared with Yanghu Lake, the height of Nam Co is higher, and the highest mouth is 5190 meters. It is because of the high altitude environment that it still maintains the original ecology and there is no trace of dust.
    Along the stone road, until the holy lake, the lake is still the same, and people are fascinated, near the mysterious lake center, inexplicably intertwined with a kind of emotion, one person and one stone to settle, look far and near, calm, snow and ice into the lake, heart Own.
    Everyone who has been to Namco, the soul seems to have been washed by the pure lake water, and is condensed by the distant snow-capped mountains, and then with the clouds of the sky, as if in a white and blue world, the gradient of the blue color The repeated changes here, white and blue are clear, and Namco will interpret the illusion between blue and white in front of our eyes.
    Unlike the blue of the sheep lake, Namco’s blue is deeper, this kind of
    The blue painting shows an ethereal realm, and by praying for worship, it calms an anxiety in the heart. For a perseverance, I melted my heart to the lake and went along with the ripples of the lake.
    There is an infinite blue sky above the head, and the clouds separate the sky from the blue of the lake. The snow-capped peaks in the distance are like mirages, flickering in the clouds, the lake surface squatting in the breeze, standing by the lake, waiting for the heart to be washed, captured by such beauty.
    The vast lake reflects the sacred place in the heart of the pilgrim, and the scene of the clouds rises and falls on the lake, as if it were another parallel world in the world.
    Walking by the lake, every movement will be reflected in the lake, beautiful. In addition, there are huge yak waiting for you to take a group photo, you can ride a yak and play here with the heavens and the earth.
    Unlike Yanghu Lake, the most beautiful time of Nam Co is not noon, but morning, evening and late night. The sunrise, sunset and starry sky are famous all over Tibet and even China, but considering the poor accommodation and night. The sudden drop in temperature is easy and high, we have not stayed here.
    Driving on the road back to Lhasa, the sky is vast and boundless, and the distant scene is being presented to the heavens and the earth with another climatic scene. The sudden dark clouds erode the whole world with the tornado.
    A bright, dark, heaven and earth change is such a rapid change, the sun has not retreated, still illuminating a grassland.
    Gradually approaching the dark clouds, entering the hail area, the lightning is changing in front of the eyes, as silky, the ethereal is uncertain.
    Passing through the Wuyun District, it is a clear sky, the sky reveals the outline of love, as if we are comparing with us, let us feel that this land is still showing us friendship.
    Transportation: It takes 8 hours for Namco to travel to and from Lhasa.
    Suggest a chartered tour or a day trip/two-day tour of the tour group
    Tickets:The peak season (5.1-10.31) 120 yuan / person, off-season (11.1-4.30) 100 yuan / person.
    Duration of play: 1~2 days
    TIPS: Namco is at a high altitude and the weather is erratic. It is a high-risk high-incidence area. You must wait until your body adapts to the plateau climate. Don’t forget to bring a thick coat for your needs.
    Golden pond, the moment when the sun is tilted
    The popular tourist city in Tibet is dominated by Lhasa, and Daban County, which is known as the “Lhasa East Gate”, is naturally an indispensable list. Dalai County is a half-hour drive from Lhasa, and there are many original ecological sites that have not yet been fully developed.
    The natural scene always surprises us. Datun Golden Pond, the vast mountains are covered with heavy white clouds. Although the air on the plateau is thin, such scenery is still heart-rending. This is a wetland that is still under development. It is not large in size. It relies on a pond and tells the beautiful scenery that belongs to Daban. The reflection in the lake is beautiful, and the whole world is turned over. When the sun sets, the golden sunshine pouring over the lake, the lake turns into gold, and then I realized that this is a veritable golden pond.
    It is the season of summer and autumn, we have experienced the lush summer and the autumn. The golden autumn color just showed a little, staying at the end of the summer. Walking into a poplar forest, the green that slowly receded is replaced by a little golden. When the sun is falling, the breeze is coming, the falling golden color makes people feel the seasons alternately quietly, and the autumn whisper tells you that the change here all.
    At different stages of autumn, the colors of the leaves are different, and the golden color represents only one color of autumn. The fallen leaves, like the feathers of this wood, have fallen, but they remain in this soil, still guarding the golden pond. They gradually turn orange-red and eventually become the color of the soil.
    When everything fades, in the scenery of the golden pond, the noise in the ear is far away, and all you have to do is listen to the most natural sound here.
    The color of the pond will change with the sky, as the reflection changes, and as I enter the painting, another vivid picture is presented. The blue sky, the green of the woods, in such a colorful picture, the layer of color clearly makes people have to thank the colorful world.
    When the green grass has not changed color, the pond is welcoming the herd, and it is as if it will find something from the grass.
    The golden pond will change color with the seasons, and even the morning and evening colors will be different. Just like the human mood, it will change instantly in a blink of an eye.
    Although the light of the setting sun is dazzling, it is clearly visible. The original dark brown shoal, also because of the sun, glows like a gold color. Looking up, everything has turned into a golden, warm-colored picture, let the heart warm up with the color.
    The sun slowly sneaked into the clouds, sketching out the appearance of the clouds, leaving a layer of gold-like color on the lake surface, with a layer of matte sensation with the microwave.
    Landscape painting
    The sky is high and the wind is rising, and the rolling snow-capped mountains slowly begin to melt under the direct sunlight. A clear stream flows along the rugged mountains into the slopes of the mountains. The rushing water flow, in the still picture, is still full of vitality, like a dynamic landscape painting, every drop of the splash is clearly visible, there is sound, here is the Bai Nagou of Daban County. Because the summer has passed, the remaining vegetation is not very lush, and the stones are scattered on the messy vegetation. The hills with faded vegetation set off the vitality of the flowing water. As the clouds are flowing, the sprinkling sunlight divides the hills into different color layers, and everything is like the depth of the brush strokes.
    What’s more interesting is that we were in the local bathing festival in Tibet for a few days. This is a bathing event in the “bathroom”. Everyone is playing in the river, washing away the filth, disaster, and troubles of the body with holy water. After the shower, sit by the river and take out the freshly prepared barley wine, and talk to the world. Because it is not convenient to take the camera and shoot at them, please pay attention to the picture here.
    And I sat quietly on the side of the stream, watching them talk and laugh, sketching the landscape paintings in my heart. The picture is surging, and the heart follows the picture, followed by the rapids.
    Leaving the Bai Nagou, we continued to drive deep into the foothills, bumping all the way to the beginning of my doubts about life, and the place I arrived later gave me another thought about life.
    Speaking of black tents, people who have not been to Tibetan areas may be strangers. This is a tent hand-woven with black yak hair, cold-proof and moisture-proof sunscreen. For centuries, black tents have been a necessity for Tibetan herders, helping them to countless snowy nights and avoid the scorching sun. Today, however, with lifestyle changes and rising economic levels, the government has built many resettlement houses for local herders. The number of black tents has dropped dramatically, and it is changing from a necessities butterfly to a cultural identity. Fortunately, we still saw one in the mountains of Daban County.
    A black tent camp, simple facilities provide the basic needs of the herdsmen, ensuring life without destroying the original ecological environment. For tourists, this undeveloped camp is a great place to hike and watch the scenery. At the sight of the marginal plateau, you will be grateful for the greatness of nature.
    The beam between the mountains is particularly bright, and the light and shadow constitute the spatial three-dimensionality of the picture.
    Perhaps it was too excited. We ran to the black tent all the way. When we arrived, we couldn’t get angry. We quickly sat down and breathed. The owner of the tent found that there were uninvited guests visiting. I was surprised and surprised. I saw that she used a few words in Tibetan to seem to be appeasing us, and then took out a pot of freshly brewed butter tea from the tent to fill us with a warm cup and a good body. For high-reflex people, butter tea is the best alleviation drug.
    Next to the black tent, a group of cattle were grazing, and each cow had a red string hanging on it. Compared with the dark fur, it was particularly conspicuous. It is said that this is to facilitate the number of cattle. Don’t look at the large number of cows, each one will not be mistaken, the host will even give each cow a name. So our doubts are coming again. It seems that the owners love this group of cows. But after all, they are not pets. They will be slaughtered one day. They have been emotional for so many years. Can you get it?
    The answer to this question is also beyond my expectation. Most of the Tibetans believe in religion, so they don’t kill, but they hired a butcher to kill, and watching their cattle and sheep being slaughtered is also a very pricking thing, so they think The best way is to sell your own livestock, and then buy the animals from other families to come back to eat, so that you don’t have to see your beloved things suffer, you can also eat delicious beef and mutton.
    Even if the life here is not wonderful outside, they live between heaven and earth every day, and they have faith and nothing else.
    Leaving the black tent camp, the winding road makes people suddenly open. The snowy mountains that have not completely melted in the distance have distinct edges and corners, and the greenery on the roadside has already been harvested, leaving a whole piece of golden, with the surrounding green trees. Responding to each other. It leads to the distance and also to the bottom of my heart.
    There is a vast starry sky hidden between the mountains.
    It is said that Tibet is a star-gazing place. If you can go to areas such as Alizhufeng with low altitude and low light pollution, it is not a luxury to watch the stars every day. But if you only stay around Lhasa, does it mean to be insulated from the vast stars? ? of course not! Sangzhulinou, located in Daban County, is a good place to shoot stars. During the day, we drove all the way to the top of the mountain. We found that there was only one nunnery named “Sang Long Ri”, which was just listed in the previous year. On the other hand, it was a vast hill. The view is excellent, and when the night sky comes, it will be a starry little.
    When we learned that we were ready to drive up the mountain to see the stars, the hotel owner’s face was incredible! Because the difficulty factor of going uphill at night is much larger than that during the day, and the signal on the top of the mountain is poor, even if there is navigation, it may not be necessary.It worked. As an “old driver”, we finally chose a Tibetan driver who is familiar with the road. Seeing that we have decided to go, the hotel owner kindly advised: Let’s take something evil to keep it safe! This sentence makes the peers of the peers especially afraid, and the appeals all the way need to ward off evil. At this time, I said that the heart of the man is much stronger. It is not just shooting the stars at the top of the mountain. I still have seen it.
    In the mouth of the Tibetan driver, it was learned that there was no such thing as a sacred thing in the Sangzhulingou, and there was a nunnery guarding the mountain, and the heart of the little friend finally hung down.
    The first time I got off the bus, my little friend shouted: Galaxy! The galaxy can be seen with the naked eye! *******(This omits one hundred sentences that are difficult to suppress excitement)
    Although I am not the first time to watch the stars, every time I face this starry sky, there is an indescribable awe. The original awe-inspiring night sky, the mysterious Milky Way always appears in one direction, just wait, the glowing star river will appear there.
    Gandan Temple – Lingyun towering, Buddha can not speak
    Along the mountain, Gandan Temple is above the cloud. It is located on the Wangbo Mountain in the south bank of the Lhasa River in Dalai County at an altitude of 3,800 meters. The previous terrain did not make me have a high counter, but it is no exaggeration to say that without drinking a little glucose, perhaps you can’t see Ganden Monastery at all. Along the mountain path, towering red and yellow tiles greet you, which is the most passionate color in Buddhism. The temple stands on the top of the mountain, overlooking the buildings that are covered with mountains, and the overlapping houses are particularly spectacular in the background of the blue sky.
    Gandan Temple is the most special temple in the Six Great Temples of the Yellow Emperor. It was built by Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism, in 1409. It can be said to be the ancestral temple of the Gelug Sect. There are more than 90 remains of the remains of Gandan Chiba in the temple, and many cultural relics and handicrafts since the Ming Dynasty.
    Step by step on a narrow high wall path, each step is so slight, but because of lack of oxygen, it seems a bit heavy.
    The towering brick walls, in the sunshine, are well-defined, but they are all between red and yellow. This is the two major colors of Buddhism. The red of Buddhism should be called red, with a mysterious feeling of vicissitudes.
    Monks can be seen everywhere, and the redness of the body is on the steps of the mountains. This mountain road is already familiar to them.
    At noon, many monks gathered in the chanting hall, sometimes turning pages through pages, and sometimes talking. A day of eating and drinking is carried out in the hall, isolated from the outside world, and there is only a heart-warming cultivation.
    From the other side, Gandan Temple, with the flat-rise buildings of the Jinta, climbing the mountains, built on the mountains, and connected into a piece of residence, such a Lushan building is rare in the domestic scenery. You can always look up to the top of the mountain along the mountain, and the perspective of the sky makes people rely on it. Everything can survive here, everything can look good in the sky. Perhaps here is another country where the Buddha is in the world. It only lives for faith.
    The road is in front of us. As long as we stay and pay attention to every step of our feet, everything is exactly what we saw.
    If you are chartered, from the Ganden Monastery on the way back, you can take a look at the Sanya Temple in Daban County. This temple was built in 1419 and was founded by Tsongkhapa. It has a history of 587 years and belongs to Tibet. The Buddhist Gelugpa. Although the temple is not large, it is surrounded by mountains and the environment is quiet. It takes ten minutes to walk around and the day of “pilgrimage” is completed.
    Transportation: 1. In the Lubu parking lot (near the Jokhang Temple), take the bus to the Ganden Monastery. The bus is full and usually departs at 7:00. One-way fare is 10 yuan/person, round-trip 20 yuan/person, one-way one-hour, and the original car returns from 15:00-16:00 on the same day. 2, can be chartered at the hotel and other tourists, can stay in the temple at the middle of the temple (recommended)
    Tickets: 40 yuan / person, from time to time free
    Opening hours: 9:00-16:00
    Duration of play: Due to the long distance of Gandan Temple and the speed limit along the way, it is recommended to take a day to play alone.
    Zhayeba Temple – hidden in the mountains, holy and refined
    Speaking of the temple built on the hillside, it is necessary to mention the Zhayeba Temple. It is located in the mountains of Daban County. It is a historical and dangerous Tibetan Buddhist practice. Starting from Lhasa, crossing the river to the Najin Pass, you will arrive at the Zhayeba Temple, one of the four hidden places in Tibet during the Tubo period. In the eyes of the Tibetans, Zhayeba Temple is a unique holy place. Listen to the locals’ explanations and sing in the folk songs: “The Spirit of TibetIn Lhasa, the spiritual land of Lhasa is in Yeba; to Lhasa without Yeba, it is equivalent to making a new clothes forgotten. ”
    Because the local government banned the chanting in the temple, the Tibetans hang the prayer flags on the hillside or on the side of the road. Along the way, through a very beautiful prayer zone, along with the wind, the banging sound of the chanting, dotted with the blue sky, the sun through it, turned into a multicolored color.
    With the “bottoming” of the Ganden Monastery the day before, we did not feel discomfort at the Zhayeba Temple, which is equivalent to the altitude. I thought it was a dense group of buildings like Ganden Monastery. When I arrived at the scene, I realized that the buildings of Zhayeba Temple were all built in the rock wall. Although there were many, they were staggered. Looking up from below, the magnificent temple hall and the holy white pagoda are located in the mountains between the mountains, especially in the green mountains. This is a holy representative and a sign of separation from the world.
    The mountains are covered in green,
    Looking from the heights, Zhayeba Temple is hidden in the mountains, but it is particularly conspicuous. On the mountain
    The green jungle, while flowing in the foothills of the river, the best scenery here is in the direction of the look.
    Such a steep cliff, how hard it is to build such a temple complex, the wonderland practice may mean here. There are more than a dozen caves in Zhayeba Temple. There are many caves such as the Fawang Cave of Songtsan Gampo, the Moon Cave of the Master of Lotus Life, and the Zu Shi Cave of the Adixia. It is said that some people have excavated the classics here. .
    Climb to the heights of the temple and look up at the opposite mountain. I found that the top of the mountain is smoking. A group of people are sitting around, and the companion recognizes it at a glance. It is buried in the sky! After all, the companion vividly described the whole process of the celestial burial, and said that he had watched it in close proximity to Seda, and I didn’t know much about Tibetan culture. I just felt that I had a long way to go. In fact, such a ceremony is only Another interpretation of life and death.
    Look at the world, look back, have passed, only the place to stay in mind.

    Bonfire party, hard to say goodbye
    Whenever it was late in the evening, Daban’s piece of land was quiet and began to move. Everyone began to gather in a place to greet the bonfire party to be held at night.
    Before the start of the campfire night, waiting for us was a Tibetan opera performance. Tibetan opera is a comprehensive performance art that expresses the content of the story in the form of folk songs and dances. The history is very long, there are many kinds of dramas, and the performance forms are rich in national characteristics. Modern Tibetan operas include scripts, dance performances, vocals for people, different costumes and masks, and band accompaniment and accompaniment.
    Living in the south of the Yangtze River, I have been listening to the drama since I was a child. The Tibetan opera was the first time I saw it. I only blamed myself for learning. I didn’t understand the story and the essence after reading the whole process. But I was sitting on the grass together with the Tibetan compatriots. Baton.
    After the end of the Tibetan opera performance, the sky was dark, the bonfire was finally ignited, the raging fire was instantly ignited, and the towering flame was clearly higher than the human body. This big flame was the first close contact. As the wind danced, the flame was in the air. Painting.
    The Tibetans hand in hand, surrounded by the fire, singing and singing, this is the awe of fire and the gratitude of God. Next to the cheerful campfire, I also met a local child. She asked my name. When I left, she shouted my name and shouted “Little A, Goodbye”, um, goodbye, here. Worth seeing again.
    Around the campfire, the fearlessness in the heart is always illuminated by the flames. This is the power that is conveyed. Bonfire not only expresses people’s fear of nature, but also tells how powerful people are in the face of nature.
    The trip to Tibet allowed me to get close to the mysterious and simple life of Tibet. Everything was just like the imagination, but the pictures were really branded in my heart. Every picture is telling a belief. Here, you deserve to cherish it.

    There are many ways to come to Tibet, which can be directly reached by airplane.

This medicine must be It is useful to eat in advance, and temporary eating has no effect. However, even if it is really high, you don’t have to worry too much. You can properly absorb oxygen or add some glucose to relieve it. Usually you can jump around the third day.
