Yunnan Sichuan


Chun’s Shangri-La

 

Searching for Shangri-La, a paradise from James Hilton’s1933 fictional novel, is what retired educator Kelvin Chun is committed to.  Shangri-La was renamed from Shambhala, a mythical kingdom hidden in inner Asia and is a pure land where reality is visionary or spiritual as much as physical or geographic.  After a career of lifetime of public service, this Shangri-La can be seen in many cultures in finding the meaning of life: Japan – ikigai; France - raison d'etre, and China – Taoism.



 


Chun embarked on a journey that begins in Yunnan, China and headed north near Tibet and explores areas in Sichuan provinces.  


This area is known as the Tibet Autonomous Region is located on the Tibetan Plateau, the highest region on earth. In northern Tibet elevations reach an average of over 4,572 metres (15,000 ft).


The China's provincial-level areas of XinjiangQinghai and Sichuan lie to the north, northeast, and east, respectively, of the Tibet AR. There is also a short border with Yunnan province to the southeast. 



Transportation included riding on roller coaster buses on broken earthquaked 

rocky/dirt roads for over 12 hours. 


The Wenchuan earthquake:

Official figures (as of July 21, 2008 12:00 CST) stated that 69,197 were confirmed dead, including 68,636 in Sichuan province, and 374,176 injured, with 18,222 listed as missing. The earthquake left about 4.8 million people homeless.




and hiking through 24 mile trails for 12 hours.  


The first city begins with Shangri-La, which was called Zhongdian (Chinese中甸 Zhōngdiàn) but was renamed in  December 2001 as Shangri-La.  


He then treks for 8 hours to Yubeng Village is situated at the foot of the Meili Snow Mountain Range.  

 


Legend has it that for centuries Yubeng Village was unknown to the outside world.  Chun followed the pilgrimage to circle and get soaked from the sacred waterfall 3 times.


 




Chun explored the Yading Nature Reserve in the Kham region of Sichuan is one of the most beautiful places on the Tibetan Plateau. 




Chun had a chance to perform magic in a Tibetan wedding and in their village.

There were 17 courses at the luncheon reception and most of the village people were there.





The experiences of immersing into the minority culture and seeing how similar it is with the Hawaiian culture is amazing.  



The Tibetans are bilingual and speak their native language and Mandarin (similar to the polynesians needing to speak their native language and English).



I would even see the preparation of Yak meat for the meat market out in the frigid streets!


and observing the skillful driving of giant trucks trying to squeeze through


and sometimes the not too lucky:



Similar to greeting with "Aloha" ... བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་ལེགས། "tashi delek" with the palms upward!

Shangri-la:
http://wikitravel.org/en/Shangrila
  • Dragoncloud Hostel (0887 -8289250 , "Longxing Kezhan" in Chinese pronunciation), an old building located at the entry  from Zhongdian new city to the old town, with the best sunny yard, 24hrs hot water (real hot!) and a very helpful young owner. Plenty of travel info. and guesthouse brochures are availabe in the wall-cabinet for free. The hostel is favored by most of both domestic and oversea backpackers. Y20-30/head for dorm, Y50/single room, Y80~Y120/std. room. Getting there, just take public minibus No. 1 on the opposite side of the bus station for Y1, or take a taxi for Y6, or call the guesthouse at for a free pickup. If you arrive by air, a taxi from the airport coast around Y15.
  • Tibet Hotel (822 3754), 1km South of the Bus Station /Traditional architecture / Dorm Y20 in nice 4 bed's room / Y25 in Trpl / Dbl Y50 / Dble with bath 180
Sept. 29 Shangrila

Take the #1 local bus from the bus stop just in front of Wonderful Grocery Store, across the street from the Old Town parking lot.

There are also minivans at the bus station that leave when they are full (the drivers are shouting "Deqin, Deqin!" to passers by). It's 100 yuan per person. The minivans are a bit faster than the bus.

You can take bus from the bus station at the downtown area to Shuangqiao first. Then ride a horse to the lake. I remeber the bus fare is CNY20 and the fare for riding a horse is about CNY30.

 Horse
In many places of Shangri-la, the most beautiful scenery cannot be admired without horses. For instance, the way to the Bitahai Lake is much easier by horse than car. After getting to Shuangqiao by car or bus, most tourists choose to hire a horse to the scenic spot at a cost of around CNY50. The horses are provided by local Tibetans. They will tell you how to ride as well as any dos and don’ts.


Sept. 30 - 9am-6pm minibus from Z. to Felai.

here are four buses leaving in the morning from Shangri-la Zhongdian. The journey takes about 5 hours and is through spectacular and insanely scary mountain roads that take you through multiple ecosystems of of superb alpine scenery. The awful music videos, the freezing cold, windy roads and the potential for chain-smoking fellow-passengers can make the journey a bit unpleasant. Always bring ear plugs and a face mask. The town of Benzilan, which lies about midway fromZhongdian is worth stopping off at in its own right, and breaks the journey up nicely. The bus drops people throughout the town, ending at the bus station next to a T junction. It might be possible to continue with the same bus to the Temple FelaiSi, for an additional ¥5 - ask the driver (or ask an English speaking local to ask the driver) at the Deqin bus station. FelaiSi is located about 30 km outside of town and well worth the visit even though it is quite small. Buses to Zhongdian (Shangri-la) depart at 8:20AM, 9:20AM, 12:00PM, 14:20PM and cost ¥68. The earlier buses make a lunch stop at a restaurant but be sure to check prices before taking your food (about ¥10-15 for a vegetable dish and ¥20 for a meat dish).

Shangri-la to Deqen

There are 4 scheduled buses from Zhongdian Bus Station(0887-8223501)to Deqen every morning:7:20, 8:20, 9:20, 12:00,it will take 5、6 hours and costs 33 RMB. Lunch is offered at Benzilan during the trip. The scenery along the road is extremely beautiful, tourists can enjoy the scenery of Napahai Lake, Jinsha River Grand Gorge, Benzhilan, Dongzhuling Monastery and Baimang Snow Mountain.

The last scheduled bus from Deqen to Shangri-la is 3:00pm.

  • Telephone of Deqen Long-distance Bus Station:0887-8412115(Shangri-la 81km Benzilan 23km Dongzhuling Monastery 44km Baimang Snow Mountain 35km Deqen)

Deqen to Mingyong Glacier and Xidang Village

There are scheduled buses from Deqen Bus Station to Mingyong Glacier every day( Via the Feilai Temple), one-hour trip and costs RMB13. Also, buses are available to Xidang Village( a must-be road to Yubeng village).


https://freedomtravelphotography.wordpress.com/china-undiscovered-village-of-yubeng/

There’s no need to stop in Deqin, even though most references to Yubeng says you need to transfer in Deqin to Feilaisi. At Feilaisi there is a youth hostel called Deqin Feilaisi Youth Hostel, which charges 35 RMB per night for 10 bed room dorm 

Deqin Feilai Temple youth hostel (飞来寺觉色滇乡青年旅舍)Probably the best budget option at the Feilai Temple. Look for the Green sign near the bottom of the slope, and turn right and go up the hill. They have Dorms and private rooms with electric bankets. The rooms are quite dirty and smelly, and the bathrooms are rarely washed. There is a common room with an XBox 360 and stove. Note that the inside of the hostel is not insulated in any way, so outside of the lounge and your bed can get quite chilly! The Wifi is available in both the lounge and the rooms. The reception staff speak good english.(March 2012). Double room with bathroom is very expensive for what it is worth : ¥120. YHA China site(in Chinese) Dorm ¥30

http://www.chinatravel.com/zhongdian-attraction/feilaisi-monastery/


From Deqin, it is easy to get a taxi to Fei Lai Si (20 minutes) where you can find a guesthouse and make further arrangements to get to the start of the hike in Xidang Village the next day. Sometimes, the bus from Shangri-la to Deqin will continue to Fei Lai Si for an additional 5RMB - it's worth asking the driver. There is also a public bus From Deqin to Xidang which leaves at 3 pm.


  • Feilai Temple (飞来寺; Fēiláisì), (10km away, ¥30 by taxi). Amazing view of Meilixue Mountain worth seeing at sunrise weather permitting as the peaks are often hid in the clouds, thus the name of the temple. Feilai Temple also has a growing number of hostels and guest houses. Consider staying there instead of Deqin. The owner of "Once Upon a Time in FeiLaiSi" speaks English and can give advice on hiking in the area. (2014 - Temple charges an outrages ¥150 to see the view, they have helpfully put up a very large wall to block it and make you pay. You can get round this by walking down the hill with the temple compound wall at your left, once the wall ends turn left and admire the view. Also if you now walk up the hill on the other side of the wall you can ever the temple compound for free)  edit (2015- No entry fee requested, arrival was quite early in the morning, but 20 Yuan suggested as an offering in the temple itself.)

From Fei Lai Si, there are minivans leaving every morning for 150RMB (for a full minivan, which usually seats 7) to Xidang hot springs, which is the starting point of the trek to Yubeng. There is also a public bus leaving to Xidang hot springs at 8am from the viewing platform gate, for 20RMB per person.


Oct. 1 - 8am-10am minibus to Xidang, 6hr hike to Yubeng.

  • Yubeng Village (雨崩村‎; Yǔbēngcūn), (18km away). Tibetan village not accessible by any vehicles. You can ask at your hostel to book a seat for you in one of the minibuses departing every morning from FeiLaiSi to Xidang Hot Springs(西当温泉[xīdāngwēnquán])where the hike actually starts. There are usually 6-7 seats in a bus and an overall price is ¥150 (June 2011). Talk to the other people planning to go there so you can share the price. There are a decent number of domestic Chinese tourists that make this trek, so finding a lift shouldn't be difficult. It takes 1 hour and a half to get there and you will be asked to pay ¥80 (June 2011) as a scenic area entrance fee. Make sure you bring your passport as you have to be registered. With a student card you can get a half-price ticket. The 9 km (one way) hike takes about 6-7 hours in total (6.5km uphill and 2.5km downhill) with 1284 meters vertical gain. For those who find the hike difficult there is an option of hiring a horse or mule for ¥185 to the top or ¥255 for the whole way (June 2011). There are 2 tea-houses on the way up where you can buy some water and simple snacks and a tea-house at the top of Yakou pass. Once you arrive please note that there are two villages - Upper Yubeng (you hit this first) and Lower Yubeng (15 minute walk downhill and across the river). The accomodation in Yubeng are very basic and costs about ¥20-25 for a person (June 2011). Food is very local so bring a spirit of adventure as you eat. Once there, Yubeng is one of the most picturesque villages you could hope to see. Nestled in an alpine valley, surrounded by snow peaks, multicoloured forests, and waterfalls. There are also numerous treks one can make from the village, so plan to spend at least a couple of days there. edit The most popular is to the "sacred waterfall" (actually about 10 waterfalls) and they are stunning. Another is to the ice lake. The former starts from Lower Yubeng and the latter from Upper Yubeng. Both have significant elevation gains (3000+ feet) so allow plenty of time. Also, remember that you're already at about 10,000 feet altitude at the start, so HYDRATE as much as you can. The weather can vary from minute to minute, so the key is to layer, and have something waterproof. If you need to buy gear, note the many knock-off shops in Shangri La that sell cheap jackets that are water-resistant and/or cold-resistant. Bring snacks for the hike as there are only a few tea houses and the pickings can be slim (though the Tibetan bread, instant noodles, and Tibetan tea can all be blessings on a cold day). If you see Buddhist pilgrims, offer them a Tibetan greeting of Tashi Delek (pronounced Tash-ee Dee-lay).
  • Meilixue Mountain Nature Reserve (梅里雪山景区‎; Méilǐxuěshān Jǐngqū; also known as Snow Mountain), (You can arrange transport to the reserve entrance for around ¥50 per person in a shared 4x4. Information correct (January 2008)). Hike to the Taizi Temple and Minyong Glacier. Taizi Temple has a guest house but unfortunately most of the rooms are severely damaged by a storm, there is still a few acceptable rooms, available at very low prices ¥20. Only recommended if you absolutely have to stay on the mountain, otherwise go back down to Mingyong Town (July 2009). ¥60.
 It’s possible to start the route in either Ni Long or Xi dang village. We were recommended Ni long as the the landscape is more lush and more impressive.

As this blog is here to help people budget there trips I recommend anybody with a student card or anything that looks like a student card try and persuade the ticket office to the Yubeng area that you want the 50% discount. 115 yuan sounds much better than 230 yuan which is the official asking price.

Our first challenge was finding other trekkers in felai Si to go to Ni Long with. We spent around 2 hours trying to get a large enough group of people to make it cheaper for the minivan ride. Eventually we had 6 of us all going to Ni Long in a van paying 20 yuan each

 mini van which seated 6 people that took us over for 180RMB. Right before we arrived at the starting point of the trek was the entrance where the ticket booth was located. 240RMB was the entrance ticket to Yubeng and half price for students if under the age of 25. 
Yubeng:

Oct. 3 - Morning hike in Yubeng (e.g. waterfall), 4hr hike to Ni Nogh, 6-7pm taxi to Felai.

  • Deqin to Shangrila is a windy 6-hour drive. The town of Benzilan, which lies about midway is worth stopping off at in its own right, and breaks the journey up nicely. (Summer 2013: about 10% of the road traveled is still under construction, but travel time is not drastically affected)

Oct. 4 - 8am-4pm minibus from F. to Zhongdian.
  • Daocheng to Shangrila is a 12-hours drive. Cost ¥111. Start at 6:00 am from bus station and travel through magnificent mountain scenery. Half the road is under construction and half is smooth bitumen (June 2013).
Oct. 5 - 7am-7pm bus from Z. to Daocheng.

Oct. 6 - 8am-11am minibus from to D. to Yading (half-day hike, sleep there).
http://jennyfaraway.com/yading-nature-reserve-guide/
Daocheng from Zhongdian, from Daocheng there is daily buses to Litang. And when you are in Daocheng why not go to Yading nature reserve. Its very beautiful, specially now when the autumn color is here. Highly recommended. It's about 4 h from Daocheng. I would say its one of the most beautiful places in China. They have tent camp and food there. but i would recommended to bring some snack. 

If you're in Zhongdian and there's a bus headed to Xiangcheng, take it. Don't wait for a bus which may or may not go direct to Daocheng. It's the connection between Zhongdian and Sichuan that's the most unreliable.
The station at Zhongdian posts a daily bus from Zhongdian to Xiangcheng at 7:30 and one to Daocheng at 7:00am. 

And don't forget Tagong a very interesting small Tibetan town with a lot of hiking opportunities, stay at sally's GH just left of the temple at the main square.
