Six in the morning to go out to the bus stop to sit on the bus in Sichuan Zoige, but that bus out of the station also played a guest at junctions, etc., until the fast 8:00 and we have to slowly drive out of co-operation. Gannan car driving slowly in the wilderness, have accumulated a mountain side of the road just under the snow in the near future, continuous stretches have been turning yellow brown meadow at this time, the few cattle and sheep in the meadow on the hard chewing.
Car there are many Tibetans, speaking a language that we can not understand, as we have a self-service passenger side look like a man, cause I do not live suspicion. What luggage, he did not, took the hands of a newspaper, wearing a red's Jackets, pedal with climbing shoes, are filled with outdoor sports gear. If he is a tourist, why do not have any luggage? Indeed a very strange one person. Car to the Gahai later, this man take the initiative to talk to us, and he said that he had luggage in the Langmusi, because there is no money, so the baggage charge in the hotel, its first went to cooperative bank money. He told us that he was Hangzhou, he and some friends Ctrip on the go hand in hand with the brigade, crossed on foot to the miyaluo Siguniangshan, after the red of the original to the Langmusi. He began to describe to us from the mysterious and beautiful of the Langmusi at his instigation, the three of us decided to change the itinerary, get off at the Langmusi.
Shuttle bus stopped at an intersection, we have three, and that, together, Hangzhou men out of the car, there are tractors will be the guests at the junction waiting to tap into Langmusi villages. Tractors in the rugged and very steep mountain roads, we have four have been rocking the tractor, almost like to be thrown off a cliff, scared we can only squat in the bucket, arm held tightly. Finally has finally come to the village, to lay down their luggage, we decided immediately to go see Tianzang Tai.
Langmusi of the villages were divided into two one Bailongjiang, Hebei belongs to Gansu, Henan, belongs to Sichuan, Gansu side of the hill on the golden roof of the building complex film, which is the famous Langmusi. On the opposite side of the mountains of Sichuan also has a silver roof of the building, reportedly also known as Langmusi, but smaller scale. Tian Zangtai in Gansu side of the hill. Slowly along the dirt road climbing Langmusi, temple is not small, but most halls were shut, they stood in front of temples of the slope on the lift its sights, the beauty of Langmusi glance. The left is a tall, majestic mountains, red rock towering Danxia slopes in the whole film, then a very large size, regardless of size and shape, and the world-famous rock in Australia is very big imagination that takes the cake! The right side of the mountain mountain is black, and the Huangshan granite landscapes are imagined as Daoxue general towering mountains pierce straight into the sky, between the peaks of the Grand Canyon, a deep and unpredictable, it will never lose Huangshan Mountain scenery, it is amazing! Langmusi villages are located in the high peaks, the said Langmusi the elevation of 3700 meters or more, then those who should have more than 5000 meters peaks, villages and mountains formed a huge gap, a Bailong in the village meandering by. Really did not expect that in many other travel books, are rarely mentioned in a small place, so the momentum would be extraordinary, beautiful and unusual!
Tian Zangtai way to the temple in the Langmusi behind all the way along the dirt road climb, and soon saw two small group of Tibetan monks dressed in a tent, and that men, Hangzhou, talking about something and they want us to buy the original to the burial Taiwan tickets. Bought tickets, move on, turn a corner and immediately saw the distance streamer that Tianzang Tai, and the breeze rushing toward us, let us feel the smell of blood in front of, when people's emotions suddenly was abnormal, and good news when the weather Fortunately, there are sun gently drying the body, people feel a little locked some ease of mind. We continue upward toward the Tianzang Tai walked. (Please allow me to end this description of Tianzang Tai)
Down the Tianzang Tai, and that two Tibetan small group together the video before we know is this the Tianzang Shi, this year was early twenties. When we are down, said the day as they please, it began to hail. We are fortunate to have in Tianzang Tai when not hail, or the black, Shen will bring us the days I do not know what state of mind. Not a quarter of an hour, returned to the village, the days, clear up, and the horizon is also hung rainbow, very good-looking! We are in the hotel restaurant and ordered a spicy pork noodles, decided to hurry to get somewhere to eat on the Ruoergai. Restaurant foreigners far more than the domestic one, said that many of the English guidebook to promote the Langmusi both mysterious and beautiful place. That Hangzhou men entered the restaurant to see us eating noodles, open is: "You just looked at burial, but also have appetite to eat ah!" This said, let's put down the chopsticks 3 only eat half a bowl of noodles, we decided to get going.
And the two couples together in Guangzhou five of us, package in a hurry off Beijing Jeep, from Langmusi to Zoige scenery in this way are very good, large tracts of meadows, high mountain. We were constantly taking pictures for the driver to stop. Vehicles finally turned a mountain, after an endless expanse of prairie in front of us, it is well-known Ruoergai prairie, and yaks and sheep dotted in the densely golden savannah. Our cars will soon enter the grasslands, yaks on our side, the sky is so blue, blossoming white clouds drift quickly in the blue sky, the sun in the grasslands at different levels of light projecting out of the shadow of the grasslands Colors are very rich, therefore, good wonderful beautiful prairie ah! Car walk through grasslands, open one and a half hours before through the grasslands, is really a prairie ah, although already in autumn, and grasslands are no longer green, but the golden grass Ruoergai very bright, let us linger!
Vehicles to the county seat when getting dark, and we stay there in the hotel, and only know the whole month Ruoergai has not received television programs. Today is October 7, 19:30 Chinese soccer team in Shenyang, the key to decisive battle Wulihe ah, we can see no way to really regret ah, early to know Zoige no television, we would prefer a day later that, But now is too late to regret. Eat dinner together five of us to find a place to buy beef jerky, find a Lao Bantian finally found a distribution point, Zoige of beef jerky is really very delicious, we did not buy a lot of people have to know in terms of Where in China can not eat such a delicious dried beef. Do not forget to go to Ruoergai buy beef jerky ah!
Back at the hotel have not slept, Ruoergai county boiling up, firecrackers and fireworks everywhere, it seems the Chinese have finally achieved a football out of Asia's long-cherished wish, the hotel is only our five guests, we have no inquiries, our only conjecture , and the conjecture on the beautiful plateau into the night dream Ruoergai bar.
