The Picturesque Luorong Grasslands In The Foot Of Mt. Jampelyang (5,958 M), Yading Nature Reserve, Sichuan
Yading Nature Reserve, Tibetan Plateau, Sichuan, China; 8 August 2019; Inside the Yading Nature Reserve are the 3 holy mountains of Chenresig, rising to 6032 meters, Chana Dorje and Jampelyang, which both rise to 5958 meters. These 3 snow-capped peaks sit in a triangle formation with forested valleys, clear rivers, glacier-fed lakes and abundant wildlife between them. Of all the places that call themselves “Shangri La”, the Yading Nature Reserve probably best represents what James Hilton was thinking about when he wrote “Lost Horizon”.
