Culture of China during new time on its boondocks
This part of the province stretching for the North to Gansu, on the South to Yunnan and on the West to Tibet and still remaining boondocks of modern China despite active development of infrastructure, is in recent years pleasant in all option for travel. The culture of China during new time was not in time to extend very much so yet here. The western highlands strike with an effektnost of landscapes. Not for nothing these lands are registered on one of the brightest in all country. On wide луговьях yaks and horses are grazed, over snow-covered gorges and passes turn ravens, and types of the mountain ranges puncturing with peaks is dazzling blue heavens, for a long time are engraved in the memory. Though the huge cities of the western Sichuan are populated ханями and Muslims-huey (which even more lives in adjoining provinces), historically this region was not a part of the province. In this region, being called Kham, some small states occupying lands to the Western Sichuan both district areas of the Provinces of Qinghai and Yunnan co-existed. The best time of rest in China in these provinces does not depend on a season. Tibetets living here call themselves кхампа, say on an own dialect and very much differ from those tibetets that lands to the west occupy. Only in the seventeenth century, in board of the 5th Dalai Lama, Lobsanga Gyatso, local monasteries of a byiya against will are transferred to predominating sect of Gelug, and inhabitants have fallen under a heel of Lhasa. Khamp and at present are famous for the reputation of rebellious, freedom-loving people assigned to them.
Independent travel to China to the Western Sichuan
And in the cultural plan the region remains Tibetan – here not only there are important lamaistsky monasteries of the country, well and the Tibetan population, statistically a percentage shred of tibetets in a total number of local population much more prevails surpasses that in the Tibet. To cross the Western Sichuan it is possible on one of the 3rd zones – everything depends on your plans and time which you have. If the trip to China without the aid of others is planned by you, the following information will be as it is impossible by the way. For fluent acquaintance to the region it is enough to visit Volun’s Natural reserve in mountains overgrown with the wood to the northwest from Chengdu and, having admired pandas living there, to make a campaign on spurs of snow-covered peaks Sygunyanshanya. If from Sichuan you plan to go on the North, to Gansu, it is meaningful to visit the settlement Sunpan enclosed with fortifications, the centre of riding and starting base for excursions to the natural reserves located nearby Huanlun and Tszyuchzhaygou. From Sunpanya it is possible to continue travel on the North – through Lanmusa’s Tibetan monastery – to the Province of Gansu. The way to the wide area to the West from Chengdu lies through Kandin’s administrative capital from which it is simple to reach Haylogou’s glacier and Tagun’s steppes. From there are two ways for province borders (it is useful to know if you have planned independent travel to China). the 1st route lasts on the northwest to Tibet – through Gantsza’s monastic monasteries and Dege. Grasping spirit the mountain pass and the Hall of Sacred texts in Dege impress all tourists choosing this way. Other route runs on the West from Kandin to high-mountainous Litan where there is the next monastery, and later also forks, putting travellers before a choice.
Buses from China are safe for tourists
The main road continues a way on the West to Batan on the Tibetan border (at the moment of writing of this book, transition to Tibet from Sichuan remained prohibited for foreigners) whereas another directs on the South – to picturesque plains that surround Daochen and Syanchen, and, having passed them, runs to Yunnan. Travel across the Western Sichuan asks endurance and patience (irrespective of, whether you have caught rounds all inclusive or have chosen cheap rounds to China). Not always the best roads or more comfortable buses smooth a situation: settlements are removed from each other, and the trip from the 1st settlement in another takes a lot of time. Roads are very twisting, landslides, an icing or strong snowfalls from time to time will block movement on them for some days. So tourists here risk to acquire a breakdown and irritability. Plus – that drivers of buses go very accurately, after all many buses from China are equipped with "black boxes» and high-speed signalling devices. It should be noted as well that the most part of the region towers above sea level on 2500 m, and the height of the 1st pass reaches even 5000 m, and some tourists suffer from mountain diseases. With yourself to the road it is necessary to take enough available funds because on the road you will not find the banks operating with traveler’s checks, though some ATMs will meet. Consider also that tariffs for journey in local buses it is comparably high and quite often twice surpass the ordinary. If you wish to get rounds to China in the winter, the climate of this place will not disappoint you. This edge looks fantastically actually all the year round though warm and waterproof things here will not prevent in though what season. When snow descends, movement conditions considerably improve.
