No. 10: Yading

Yading is a nation-level reserve in Daocheng County, in the southwest of Sichuan Province. Located in the eastern part of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, it boasts a beautiful alpine valley scenery.

The reserve covers an area of 1,344 square kilometers (134,400 hectares), with Chenrezig being its highest peak at 6,032 meters above sea level. It is known as one of China's oldest and best-preserved alpine ecosystems. The reserve's particular geographical environment, in addition to its alpine springs, carries with it a rather humid climate with rich vergetation covering the land, creating unique scenic sights.

Yading's amazing scenery has won itself the titles of "the last Shangri-La" and "the last pure land on the blue planet."

Admission: 150 yuan (US$23.7)/person
