Yading Nature Reserve Introduction

The elevation of the scenic attraction is from 2900m (Gongga estuary) to 6032m (the peak of Chenresig). The scenic spot, covering an area of 560 thousand hectares, include three sacred mountains here: Chenresig (Avalokitesvara, 6032 meters), Jambeyang (Manjusri, 5958 m), and Chanadorje (Vajrapani, 5958 m). Thanks to the special geographical environment and natural climate, it maintains the unspoilt vegetation and native forests, very isolated Tibetan villages, a small monastery, and sacred lakes and it is the most complete natural ecosystem preserved in China.
Yading means "facing the sun" in Tibetan language. Before climbing the sacred mountain, tourists can pilgrimage the Gongling Temple at the foot of the sacred mountain to receive blessings from Buddhism. Congling Temple is famous for Nianqinggonggarisonggongbu sacred mountain. The magnificent temple preserves artistic fresco and precious cultural relics. From Gongling Temple and passing through Riwa, there are two routes to the core area of Yading natural reserve. The first o­ne is from Mengzi Canyon passing through Zhihuozhalang (the entrance of the sacred mountain) to reach Longlong Dam and Chonggu Monastery. The next o­ne is climbing westward and melting into the "glittery" Echu Mountain.

Yading Nature Reserve Features

Three Sacred Mountains
The three sacred mountains are: Chenresig (Avalokitesvara), Jambeyang (Manjusri), and Chanadorje (Vajrapani). The Chenresig (Avalokitesvara, 6032 meters), representing the Avalokitesvara sitting o­n the lotus pedestal and a sacred bottle holing in hand, is the highest mountain in Daocheng. Jambeyang (Manjusri, 5958 m), looking like a gentle and quiet maiden, is transparent and beautifully wrought. Chanadorje (Vajrapani, 5958 m) is like a healthy and energetic youngster. All together, they were ranked as the eleventh most sacred mountains in Tibetan Buddhism. The three mountains represent compassion, wisdom and energy respectively. Tibetan Buddhists believe that making a pilgrimage around these snow-capped mountains brings great merit. During the long past, these three sacred mountains represented the hope and dream of the Tibetans and also the home of their souls.
