In December, early in the morning, I met my car friends on Bald Mountain to watch the sunrise over the sea of clouds and the snow-covered plateau. Very excited and looking forward to it. Along the way, I was praying that God would have a good weather and be able to see all the scenery I wanted to see.
Get on the expressway at around 10:00 in the morning and depart from Chengdu, and get off the expressway at Ya’an, around 11:30. At noon, I ate Chaoshou and cold chicken at this old shop in Tianquan, Ya’an. An old shop specially recommended by Viagra.
The old rule before eating is to eat the mobile phone first. This unwritten rule has suddenly become a table culture.
The chicken here is all local chicken, sweet and sour. The taste is not bad, one chicken leg weighs more than a catty, and three people need to eat two meals. Copying hands is not bad, they are all packaged by themselves. When you arrive at Tianquan, ask the bridgehead to copy hands, and most people can find it.
A table is not expensive, 145 yuan, there is still a portion of chicken left, and I am going to eat it at night.
After dinner, we continued to go to Bald Mountain. If we were not careful, we drove too much, and we were only a few kilometers away from the Erlang Mountain Tunnel. Turn around quickly and drive back.
I was very excited to see the snow-capped mountains for the first time, and I really wanted to go up quickly.
After repeated contact with friends, I finally found the entrance to the mountain. A smooth start to this adventure. Take National Highway 318, pass through the Shuikong Tunnel, and after exiting the tunnel, you will see a sign on the side of the road that says “Meet Bald Mountain”, and the way up the mountain is behind the sign.
The road is relatively narrow, as wide as the car, and the road is bumpy. In fact, this time I saved the box and drove an off-road vehicle to experience this kind of mountain road. When I first started going up the mountain, I didn’t feel much, and the driving was quite satisfactory.
It has already begun to enter the halfway up the mountain. Judging from the road conditions, it feels like some rocks are falling, so pass quickly.
Slowly, snow began to appear on the road, which was okay, and it was not time to hang the snow chains yet. For us, we rarely see snow, which is quite exciting.
Since the altitude is not particularly high, the snow on the road has melted a little, and the road is muddy and a bit slippery.
The higher we go, the more snow there is.
I feel that the road is getting more and more difficult to drive. Fortunately, the car is quite powerful. I plan to walk around first, and then put on the snow chains.
About one-half of the way up the mountain, snow has begun to cover the mountains and plains. Without the anti-skid chains, the body began to slip slightly. It is said that the snow above is thicker, and there are ice in many places. Persist in going forward for a while.
I really didn’t dare to drive up, so I started to put on the anti-skid chains.
The two novices have never been on snow chains. They were all fiddling with the chains, and they didn’t know the pros and cons. Anyway, they wanted to put them on the tires.
It took almost two hours for the last snow chain to be put on. It all depends on the two handsome guys who came down from the mountain to help us to install the anti-skid chains. Many thanks to them.
How difficult the process of putting on the snow chains is, it makes me sad to think about that scene. For those who will, it is a matter of minutes, but for us it is simply unbearable to look directly at.
Put on the anti-skid chains, and finally feel more at ease in my heart. Start to keep going up.
Snow-capped, the entire mountaintop seems to be in black and white, except for white is black.
To be honest, the way up the mountain is really dangerous, with mountains on one side and cliffs on the other. I can’t imagine the consequences of the car body skidding.
The ice waterfall is beautiful, but it is also quite dangerous. With anti-skid chains, the car still slipped here, and I was a little scared in my heart.
We finally reached the top of the mountain at 5:00 pm. There is a fee to enter here, and the ticket is 100 yuan per car. There is accommodation here, 50 yuan per person for a bunk, 100 yuan per person for a small bed.
After entering it, we drove up the mountain for about 5 minutes, and there was a flat area where we could park. It happened to be sunset, so I quickly stopped and walked up the mountain. At this time, I didn’t have the courage to drive to the top of the mountain. The car skidded and tilted too much.
The setting sun and the sea of clouds changed in just over ten minutes.
It takes about 10 minutes to walk up the mountain from the parking platform. There are three platforms on the mountain where you can watch different scenery from different places. It takes only a few minutes to walk from each platform. However, it is not easy to walk, and it is easier to wrestle when there is snow.
Seeing the sea of clouds, the sunset went down the mountain, and I went to the boss for dinner. Chicken stewed with potatoes, put on the kind of wood stove used in Northeast China, it is really delicious in this world of ice and snow.
At night, we didn’t stay here, we all slept in the car. It’s okay in the car at night, it’s not too cold.
I got up at 6 o’clock in the morning, and the car glass was covered with a thick layer of ice from the inside of the car. It feels like I stayed in the refrigerator overnight. It was still a starry sky outside.
At minus 10 degrees, the mobile phone was successfully frozen and ran out of battery, and it could not be charged.
Pack up and prepare to go up the mountain to watch the sunrise. The sunrise here generally appears around 7:50 in winter. Look forward to it, I hope you will have good luck, and your character will explode.
Arrive at the top of the mountain around 7:30 and wait for the sunrise. The sky is gradually turning white, and it feels like the sun is about to come out.
Haha, it’s so cold coming up, self-entertainment must be indispensable. All kinds of poses, all kinds of smugness.
Viagra’s posture is still very handsome. Before dawn, he was in a hurry. In fact, it is really too cold. If you don’t move, you will freeze in a while. It is more than ten degrees below zero, and you are on the top of the mountain. The wind blows unambiguously.
Haha, let’s take a group photo, the sunrise is about to begin. Excited.
Gongga Mountain, a great place to see the golden mountain in the sunshine. The top of the mountain is covered with snow, and when the sun shines, the mountain is also shining.
The salted egg yolk has gradually begun to emerge. What a harmonious picture this is. I always feel hopeful when I see the sun rising slowly.
This buddy sacrificed a lot. He took off all his clothes for the sake of the scenery. Haha, your courage is commendable.
The sky is getting redder and redder, and the sun has risen slowly, and it is about to be completely exposed. All the focus is on that one point. There is no sense of urgency, I just hope that he will rise slowly and illuminate the whole earth.
I’m about to jump out of the parallel line, very excited.
It’s really beautiful, sunrise, sunset, sea of clouds, sunshine shining on Jinshan, I don’t know how to describe such a beautiful scenery. At this moment, a heart seems to be beating for this scenery.
Gradually, it was already bright, and I was reluctant to go down the mountain, so I wandered around on several hills. No matter how you look at it, it is beautiful.
Running and jumping, it started to be smug.
After watching the beautiful scenery on the mountain, I went to the boss below and went to have breakfast. The focus is to go down the mountain to play in the snow.
Ugly snow doll, people who come here must make a special entertainment project.
It snowed heavily last night, and now it is really white, and the whole thing is a black and white photo.
An unprofessional model and an unprofessional photographer couldn’t help but shoot in this beautiful scenery. After breakfast, we are ready to start the thrilling journey down the mountain. You must wear anti-skid chains when going down the mountain. There are several turns on the road, which are quite thrilling. I rented two thick anti-skid chains from the boss, but the one I brought was too thin, and the anti-skid effect was not very good. I rented a pair of anti-skid chains for 200 yuan, and the boss charged 100 yuan per person for two meals in the evening and in the morning. Packed up and ready to go down the mountain.
Self-driving tour route: Lianglu Township (Xingou), Tianquan County, Ya’an City, Sichuan Province, about 26 kilometers away from National Highway 318. After exiting the Maoshuikong Tunnel, you will see the sign of Meet Bald Mountain and turn left! 3480 meters above sea level!
Kind tips! It is best to bring four anti-skid chains here! The road is too slippery! This is a photo provided by a car friend. There are many icy places on the road, and the car is prone to skidding. Of course, it would be better to have ice grips.
In fact, looking at these is very frightening. Don’t the old people say that going up the mountain is easy and going down the mountain is difficult?
Fortunately, this buddy jumped off the car quickly, otherwise he would have slipped down the mountain. It is much safer to bring four anti-skid chains. Fortunately, there are some trees here. I can’t imagine without trees.
You can walk on the ice lake behind the boss’s house. But it still feels scary to walk up.
To prepare before departure, I rented two thick anti-skid chains, checked and checked the anti-skid chains and prepared to go down the mountain.
The scenery on both sides of the road is beautiful, but I don’t have the courage to look to both sides, and all my attention is on this road.
We all drove slowly down the hill, at a speed of about 20 yards, and even slower when we reached the curve. You must not step on the brakes on the way down the mountain, and you can walk with a little handbrake when you turn around.
In fact, this place is really beautiful. I stopped and stopped along the way, and I wanted to stay in this snowy sea for a while.
There are more icy places on the road going down the mountain, which is obviously more slippery than when going up the mountain.
Drive forward slowly. At this time, it is obvious that a smaller car has an advantage. When turning, the risk factor is greatly reduced.
The most dangerous place has not yet arrived, and I still have a little leisure time to take some photos, but the snow here is really thick.
There are cliffs on one side and mountains on the other. You must drive slowly. No matter how good the scenery is, you don’t have the heart to appreciate it.
Ice waterfall, I am not excited when I see it, but nervous, which means that the road must be ice.
It is obvious that the road surface is getting narrower and narrower, and several thrilling back turns follow. It is almost more than 10 yards to finish this section of the road.
I have experienced skating here, whether it is a car or a person, I have been skating badly here, and I was also scared.
Look at the sharp bend, but it is understandable that the roads are often difficult to walk in places with good scenery.
It’s icy, sliding all the way down, it’s a trivial matter for the car to go sideways, if it weren’t for these big potholes and small swings, it might not be so slippery.
There are quite a lot of such deep pits on the road, most of which were dug by other riders.
It took three hours and finally went down the mountain safely. You can imagine how difficult it is to drive for more than 20 kilometers and drive for three hours. But it’s also a nice experience. Haha went down the mountain, and the whole person was relaxed. In May next year, make an appointment at Bald Mountain to see the azaleas all over the mountain.
