  • Kanding-a small, modern city with a population of about 110 thousand. people Centre garzê Tibetan autonomous region. More than 300 years it was a shopping village on the road from Chengdu to Tibet. I think this is a good place to familiarize yourself with the eastern part of Tibet. In and around the city there are several large Buddhist monasteries, there is a Museum of Tibetan culture near cableway station of Mount Paoma. Paoma-a sacred place for Buddhists. There are Buddhist temples, giant stupa and a lot of prayer flags fluttering in the wind. Here one can enjoy the beautiful view of the city, stretched out along the River in a narrow gorge. Stormy mountain river bound stone embankments. Through it is crossed by bridges. One of them, Princess Wencheng bridge, easily recognizable by the Christmas lights of flags, outstretched across the river. On the streets of the city, you can often see people in colorful, bright, traditional Tibetan national costumes. We were in Kandinge in January 2016 onwards. The temperature fell below zero, it was a lot of snow. We admired the views of the mountains. At night the streets are highlighted with colorful lanterns.

  • Kangding is actually not uninteresting: wedged in the narrow valley of a shooting impressive wild through the town River and dominated by over 5000 m high mountains it has become as a long band modern buildings through the foothills of the Gongga Shan. But it is not at all nice and everything that was old was rationalised away or jazzed up in a few cases as a tourist attraction. As a staging post for an overnight stay, it may be more or less useful despite rain traffic to Tibet and corresponding noise, but you are looking for a "historic" here. Even the three Gompas have suffered a rash and radical cure of embellishment. An evening walk along the river is appropriate but at least in the case of a gruelling passage.
