Aden scenic area, a.k.a. Daocheng Yading to the Chinese, is definitely one of the most beautiful places I've visited in Sichuan, a close second to Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong. For the regular tourists, it would be worthwhile to note that the latter two are fully developed 5A rated attractions in China, while Aden remains a 4A for now due to the... More

I have a particular fascination for places with dramatic mountains, expansive meadows and rivers/creeks of pristine clear water. Most of all, places with soul, and that means places inhabited by real people who have blended themselves into a unique landscape for centuries, spawning a tradition and a history unique to the land. I just visited the Yading National Reserve mid-October... More

We travelled as a group on a land trip from Jiuzhaigou to Daocheng and by the time we reached Yading,most of us were acclimatized to the high attitude. The highway and roads provided a smooth ride to Yading. From Long Long Ba, there is a tram service that brought us to Luorong Pasture (洛绒牛场). We had quite an experience as... More

I will suggest to travel by coach from Chengdu. Your excitement grow along the journey, especially when you have to go over 7 mountains of over 4000m. You also get to adjust to the altitude, so you are able to enjoy the trek at Yading! It is a different feel from JuiZhaGou- 九寨溝. and it is much tougher to visit... More

The whole area is very nice. And the three mountains are truly majestic. It is definitelly worth a visit, and to my surprise it hasn't been turned into Disneyland yet. However, it upset me that first (mandatory) bus ride wouldn't drive all the way to the end of the road even though the bus ticket is already a rip off... More

Some recent updates on Yading. It is still as beautiful as ever, despite being there in the non-optimal season. Best season is supposed to be late Sep to early Nov if you want to avoid rain and having a great skyline to admire the surroundings. We stayed in Daocheng before heading to Yading. Great town and you can get most... More

Our tour guide would drive and dropped us at the Yading Nature Reserve entrance. Upon purchasing our ticket (RMB 150/person), we can choose to walk 200 metres or have donkey ride(RMB 40/person 1 way up) to Long Long Ba (a scenic area, 龙龙坝). From Long Long Ba, there is a tram service (RMB 50 return), to go into the Luorong... More

I think almost everyone know about "Shangri-La", but have you ever visit there. There are lots of location claiming they are this beautiful place, but my pick will be still Yading. Tough trip from the road and it should be resolved by now while the new airport completion, but still created a memorable memory for my to talk with, as... More
