The sacred mountain in western Sichuan, the scenery is comparable to that of Switzerland, and the folk culture is even more eye-opening


During these years of traveling, I have visited many places in China, seen famous mountains and rivers, and walked through ancient towns in the country. I prefer niche tourist destinations to noisy popular attractions. If you want to ask me the most memorable niche attraction, the Siguniang Mountain in western Sichuan is what pops out of my mind. There are both majestic and majestic mountains and colorful ethnic customs here. Siguniang Mountain is located in Xiaojin County, Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province. It belongs to the Qionglai Mountains of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The so-called “Siguniang Mountain” is composed of four continuous peaks, the highest of which is 6,250 meters above sea level. This is not only a paradise for climbers, but also a holy place for experiencing Tibetan and Qiang culture. It has an irreplaceable sacred status in the hearts of local people. As the closest snow mountain to a big city in China, the four peaks of Mount Siguniang are covered with snow and ice all year round, like four beautiful girls with white gauze on their heads. Among them, the youngest girl is slender and graceful. “Girl” refers to this highest and most beautiful snow peak. Siguniang Mountain has majestic peaks and magnificent scenery, the top of the mountain is wrapped in silver dress, the foothills are lush green, and the hills are green. Some people compare this paradise to “a paradise raised in a deep boudoir”. , Forests, snow-capped mountains, mountain lakes, glacier relics and many other precious resources, known as the “Oriental Alps”. Here, the mountains are peculiar, the water is clear, the old trees are verdant, and the natural ecology is intact. The blue sky and white clouds, the icy and snowy mountains, the dense forest, the green grass, the meadows, lakes and the organic combination of various wild flowers are ever-changing and natural, forming a wonderful natural dynamic three-dimensional picture, comparable to the European Alps. Stunning scenery. In recent years, Siguniang Mountain Scenic Area has become an outdoor paradise for urbanites. People come here to get close to nature, they can climb the dream of snow-capped mountains, they can also embark on a natural trekking, feel the beauty of the earth, draw the power of life from the aura of heaven and earth, and reap the experience and growth of life in adventures and challenges. In addition, Mount Siguniang not only has beautiful scenery, it is also revered as a “sacred mountain” by the local Tibetans. Under the sky, towering mountains guard one side, like a god to nourish and shelter the people living in the hinterland of her hills. Every year on the fourth day of the fifth month of the lunar calendar, the local Jiarong Tibetans will hold a pilgrimage meeting with Tibetan religious features. This is one of their most important festivals. On this day, the local Tibetans would dress in full costumes, carry tributes such as highland barley wine, beef and mutton, and steamed buns on their backs, drag their families and climb to the Chaoshan Ping filled with prayer flags to worship Siguniang Mountain and pray for the protection of the mountain gods. Seek a good life of peace, peace and prosperity. During the sacrificial ceremony, several high-ranking lamas led them to beat gongs and drums, play Tibetan music in unison, and meditate and recite sutras. After the chanting, the lama blew up his drums, and the people gathered around the fire to burn paper and incense. They visited and prayed. They walked around the hillside and floated the “Longda” into the air, praying for good luck and well-being. After the religious ritual activities are completed, the great lama will still sit on the throne to consecrate and pray for the people who come to the pilgrimage. The Jiarong Tibetans are a nation that can sing and dance. Men, women, young and old can dance. There is a proverb as proof, “The one who can’t sing is the head of the cow, and the one who can’t dance is the wood.” Tibetans dressed in all-color characteristic costumes, arm in arm dance cheerful dance, simple and natural, authentic. Seeing such a pleasing Tibetan song and dance feast, my tiredness disappeared.[Original works, reprinting is prohibited, infringement must be investigated]Please pay attention to me and share more exciting trips with you
