Danba – Dangling 丹巴 党岭

Location: Sichuan Province, Ganzi Tibetan Prefecture, Danba County, Bianerxiang Village
四川省甘孜藏族自治州丹巴县西北部的边耳乡

How to get there: 3 hours by car from Danba, 65 kilometers

Where to stay: in Secretary Song’s guesthouse 宋书记家, there are only a few double rooms with bathroom and hot water, so book in advance. There was no heating and the nights were very cold during our visit in mid-October. We didn’t book a room, so we ended up in a dirty not-so-nice room.

Dangling is 3600 meters above sea level (about the same as Lhasa), and the highest point in the main scenic area, Huluhai (“Gourd Sea”) 葫芦海, is 4200 meters.

The distance from Dangling Village to Huluhai is 7-8 km, many visitors go there on horseback, the path it’s usually a bit muddy.

Time of visit: October 2015
