Lhasa, capital city of Tibet
Daocheng Yading Nature Reserve sits in Garze county of western Sichuan province and the eastern edge of Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. Many people regard the region as “the Last Shangri-la” due to its stunning natural beauty. The area boasts three magnificent holy mountains: Mt Chenrezig, Mt. Jambeyang and Mt. Chanadorje, as well as Echushan, Niunaihai Lake, Wusehai Lake and Yingou Valley. They present an intact and well-preserved ecological system and attract travelers with especially their mysteriousness for decades.

Three Holy Mountains
The scenic area is most famous for its three sacred snow mountains: Mt Chenrezig, Mt. Jambeyang and Mt. Chanadorje. Worshippers regard them as symbols of three Bodhisattvas: Mercy, Wisdom, and Power.
Mt. Chenrezig (Xiannairi), with an altitude of 19,790 feet (6,032 meters), is the highest peak in Daocheng County. The peak looks like a back leaning Buddha. Sunlight can sometimes turn the mountain into golden color, which is one of the most beautiful sights in the area. The mountain is also abundant in waterfalls, grasslands, lakes, and forests. You can also see the reflection of Chenrezig in Pearl Lake (Zhenzhu Hai) at the foot of the mountain.
Mt. Jambeyang (Yangmaiyong) has an elevation of 19,547 feet (5,958 meters). It has a snowy white appearance and resembles a sword pointing to the sky.
Mt. Chanadorje (Xianuoduoji) peak has the same height as Mt. Jambeyang and is in the shape of a pyramid. Famous Austrian explorer Joseph Rock described it as "a huge bat spreading its wings and the God of Thunder in Greek mythology".
Chonggu Monastery is located at the foot of Mt Chenrezig. The legend has it that it was built by a prominent monk for the purpose of worshiping the three holy mountains. The town was plagued by disease and the monk sacrificed himself to god in order to save the people. To commemorate his kindness and selflessness, people buried him on this land and made piles of Tibetan cairns in memory of him.
