Tourist destinations like Panda Research Base, Sanxingdui, Huanglong Scenic and Historic Interest Area, national parks, gardens and museums make it a wonderful place to visit.

Subtropical Monsoon Climate in Chengdu

Chengdu enjoys a subtropical monsoon climate characterized by an early spring, hot summer, cool autumn and warm winter. The average annual temperature for the year is 16℃.

Rainfall is common year-round but peaks in July and August. When planning a trip to Chengdu, one of the frequently asked questions is “When is the best time to visit Chengdu?”

Best Time to Visit Chengdu

Normally, the best time to visit here are March to June, or September to November. Use this travel guide to help you make a smart decision about when to visit Chengdu.

A Useful Post by JF

The post below by JF, a native from Chengdu will be of some practical use for your planning your Chengdu tour:

Winter is the WORST time to visit Chengdu. Yes, the temperature is a lot higher than places like Beijing and it doesn’t snow throughout the year either. However, the humidity there is extremely high. The winter is usually foggy and sprinkling.

Often you’ll find your quilt is damp because of the extreme humidity. Also, due to the climate reasons, there’s heavy cloud cover throughout most of the year.

Once you get into October, you won’t be able to see the sun again until next April. People with arthritis and rheumatic disorder should not go to Chengdu during the winter, because you will have a hard time there. Trust me, I’m a native from Chengdu, lived in there for 18 years, I know all about this.

Chengdu in Spring (late March to May)

Spring in Chengdu comes in early March and spring flowers are blossoming just after the Chinese New Year Festival. Spring is commonly very pleasant and best season for travelling. The temperature ranges from 15-25℃.

Chengdu in Summer (late June to August)

The summer in Chehngdu is hot and humid. July and August are the hottest months in a year. Rainfall is common year-round but peaks in July and August.

Chengdu Giant Panda Base

It is cool in the Qingcheng Mountain, Jiulong Gou, Jiufeng Mountain, Tiantai Mountain and Longchi Forest Park, where it is very nice to spend the summer. In early summer, hail, wind and other weather disasters often occurred, which affect agriculture activities.

Chengdu in Autumn (September to Early November)

Autumn is also the peak season for travelling to Chengdu. Autumn is cool, foggy and sometimes rainy. You are kindly advised to skip over China National Holiday in October when you plan your Chengdu Tours, since there are so many people during that time.

Chengdu in Winter (December to February Next Year)

It is a good choice to visit Xiling Snowy Mountain and Longchi Forest Park in Chengdu when winter arrives. Snow is rare but there are a few periods of frost each winter.

January is the coldest month when the average temperature is approximately 5℃. You can save some money if you travel to Chengdu in winter. To go or not to go, it all depends on your budget!

Drive from Yajiang to Litang (Tips, Photos & Map)

Saturday, September 25th, 2021

The low elevation of Yajiang (雅江) did give us a good sleep last night. Early this morning, 10 October, we continue our self-drive west along the National Highway G318 from Yajiang (雅江) to Litang ( 理塘), where we are going to head south to get to our final destination today – Daocheng (稻城).

Yajiang to Litang Road Trip

The 138 km drive from Yajiang to Litang reminds us of the overland from Kangding to Xinduqiao, where we had to ascend the high Zheduo Pass at 4290 meters; for the road trip from Xinduqiao to Yajiang, we also had to climb over the high pass of Gaoersi Pass at 4412 meters.

Now today here from Yajiang to Litang, we have to go over Kazila Pass (卡子拉山口) at the elevation of 4718 meters, the highest pass on our trip so far.

Drive from Yajiang to Litang along G318

It is again snowing due to the high elevation as we are driving up higher and higher from the low elevation of Yajiang to the high mountains on route, which all surpass 4000 meters.

The golden and yellow meadows and autumn leaves, and green pine trees are covered with white snow. We drive meticulously along the switchback mountain roads and take a break if necessary at the service stops run by the local Tibetans.

We take a break at the service stop on the way up to Kazila Pass.

Kazila Pass 4718m

At 10:30 am, we get onto the high Kazila Pass at the elevation of 4718 meters. People are snapping pictures of the huge rock sign indicating the name of the pass in Chinese – 卡子拉山口.

Climbing over the pass,  we begin to go down and the highway condition is much better than we expect, wide and flat.

On the way down to Litang Town, we also find a motorcyclist couple driving along the National Highway before us.

Going over the high Kazila Pass, we soon find the weather is getting better.  Snow stops and the mountains passing by turn multi-coloured with beautiful valleys – grazing yaks, limpid streams and yellow meadows.

Litang Town

Litang Town (理塘) at the elevation of 4014 meters is the seat of Litang County, 400 meters higher than Lhasa, one of the highest town in the world.

“Litang” in Tibet literally means “Copper Mirror-like plateau” as it is located on the flat plateau with surrounding mountains.

Litang Town is situated on the flat plateau surrounded with mountains. It is under the administration of Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, on the west Sichuan Province.

At Litang, we get off the National Highway G318 and turn south and drive along S217 to get to Daocheng.

Litang Town is an important base either for travelers going from Chengdu to Lhasa or to Daocheng. It is an old, but booming town with the coming of more and more travelers on their way to Daocheng or Lhasa.

Hotels and restaurants are seen dotted here and there in the town. At 12:15 am, we stop for lunch in Litang before we start for Daocheng along the provincial highway known as S217, which later turns out to be a super highway with beautiful landscapes.

Drive from Xinduqiao to Danba (Tips, Photos & Map)

Yesterday we traveled all the way from Daocheng back to Xinduqiao (358km) via Litang (148km) and Yajiang (286km), getting over Rabbit Mountain Pass (4696m), Kazila Mountain Pass (4718m), Jianziwan Mountain Pass (4659m) and Gaoersi Mountain Pass (4412m).

Last time we entered Xinduqiao Town around 2:00pm on October 09, for the first time, driving from Kangding to Xinduqiao, and spending 2 hours photographing the bucolic landscape along the National Highway G318 in the town; two hours later we continued to get from Xinduqiao to Yajiang.

Xinduqiao Town, a mecca for camera-toting tourists

Xinduqiao has become a buzzword in the past 20 years. The big increase of photography enthusiasts around China thrusts the place into the limelight. Yesterday afternoon we saw the one-street town was peppered with camera-toting tourists looking for lights and colors.

Xinduqiao Town is recognized on the Google Map as “Xinduqiaozhen”, and here “zhen” literally means “town”. Xinduqiaozhen is about 80km west of Kangding and 437 km west of Chengdu, Xinduqiao (新都桥) is a town under the administration of Kangding.

The influx into the town of tourists and photography aficionados has greatly developed the local economy, especially in the hotel and catering fields. At nightfall, the hotels and restaurants colorfully lit garnished the far-flung town with a layer of  modernity.

We stay at Muya Se’e  Hotel (木雅色俄酒店). The hotel is also used as an army service station ( a guesthouse for transit servicemen). The staff at the front desk were nice and very helpful. The room is up to the 3 star standard with basic modern facilities, comfy and clean with wifi service.

Scenic Xinduqiao to Danba ( 丹巴 ) Road Trip

We leave Xinduquao Town at 9:00am and start up our long-expected self-drive trip from Xinduqiao at 3450m to Danba at 1860m.

Xinduqiaozhen to Danba Road Trip Map

It is a wonderful 150 km drive morphing from Muya Tibeten area (木雅藏族聚居区) to Jiarong Tibetan area (嘉绒藏族聚居区).

Xinduqiao Town
We are leaving Xinduqiao Town around 9:00am

We are supposed to drive on the provincial level Highway S303, linking Xinduqiao to the National Highway G317 in the north and passing by Tagong (33km) and Bamei (60km); at Bameizhen ( Bamei Town), turn to the northeast direction on the S303 for Danba County (87km).

Xinduqiaozhen to Danba passing by Tagong & Bameizhen

Muya (木雅) and Jiarong (嘉绒)

Muya, aka Minyak (木雅) and Jiarong, aka Gyarong (嘉绒) are two branches of the ethnic Tibetans living in Kham. Kham is one of the four Tibetan traditional regions – 1) Ngari: in the far west region of Tibet; 2) U-Tsang: in the central region of Tibet; 3) Kham in the southeast of Tibetand 4) Amdo: in the northeast of Tibet.

Muya Tibetans and Jiarong Tibetans speak the Tibetic languages which are mutually unintelligible to a large extent. The languages have no script, but the oral languages are very much alive. They both speak Mandarin Chinese when they need to communicate with outsiders.

Muya Tibetans (aka Minyak Tibetans) live in the area between Zheduo Mountain and Yajiang ( including Xinduqiao), south of Danba and north of Jiulong County, a historically regarded by Tibetans as “Muya” (or Minyak) territory. They are half farmers, and half nomads.

Jiarong Tibetans ( aka Gyarong Tibetans ) live in Danba (Rongtrak), Jinchuan, Xiaojin (Tsenlha), Heshui (Trochu), Ma’erkang (Barkham), Wenchuan (Lunggu) and Kangding (Dartsedo) in Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture and Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. The Jiarong area is very fertile at relatively low elevations between 1800m and 2500m. Most people work in farming thanks to the much more temperate climate than the nearby Amdo and Kham regions.

Muya Tibetans and Jiarong Tibetans are different in the aspects of clothing, housing, customs and festivals. We drive gradually from the 3450m Xinduqiao down to the 1800m Danba, detecting the smooth transition from the mixed Pastoral and settled farming to settled farming and agriculture.

Xinduqiao  – Tagong  (33km)  新都桥至塔公

Driving 7km westwards through the one street town for about 10 minutes and turn north at the first intersection on the provincial level Highway S303, we will pass by Tagong (33km), Bamei (60km) and Danba (143km).

Some local Tibetan villagers here are scattered on the mountain slopes surrounded by fields instead of being in  a clustered  settlement. Most of the Muya Tibetan houses are made of bricks or stones.

The stone houses have flat roofs and many windows with a compound like a castle with defensive purposes. They are cool in summer and warm in winter. The first floor is often used to store livestock and fodder; second floor for human living.

Moving on and we see a larger Muya community skirting on the hillside surrounded by an expansive meadow. I take a photo of the Muya settlement through roadside fluttering prayer flags.

We are driving through Tagong Town (aka Lhagang ) at 3700m, a booming town developed from a small village due to the influx of more and more tourists.

Tagong Town is well-known for the same name Tagong Monastery and its surrounding Tagong Grassland that offer great views against the sacred Yala Mountain at 5820m.

Tagong Town
We are driving through Tagong Town (aka Lhagang ) at 3700m

Very soon the famous Tagong Monastery is in sight. “Tagong” literally means “A place favored by Buddha”. The legend goes that when Princess Wencheng, the Chinese would-be bride of Tibetan king of Songtsen Gampo, was on her way to Lhasa passing by this place, the precious statue of Jowo Sakymuni Buddha on the cart suddenly refused to go further on her caravan and people found the Buddha liked the place.

Later a replica of the original statue was made on the place the Buddha liked and a temple was built around it.  The original Buddha is now in Jokhang Temle in Lhasa and the replica in Tagong Temple which is often regarded as “Little Jokhang Temple”.

Tagong Monastery
Very soon the famous Tagong Monastery is in sight

We don’t  go inside Tagong Temple, driving a bit further and get off at the parking lot in Tagong Grassaland nearby.  The Tagong Grassland is centered on the Muya Golden Pagoda circled by the red wall compound.

The Muya Goden Pagoda (木雅金塔) was built 1997 with the fund donated by a Living Buddha of Zhuqing Monastery, a Nyingmapa or Red Sect temple.

Behind Tagong Monastery there are three meadow hills that are decorated with colorful prayer flags formed in triangle or quadrangle fluttering in the wind, adding much mystery and grandness to the hills.

Tagong  – Bamei (30km) 塔公至八美

Back to our Highlander and leaving Tagong Grassland, we continue our self-drive trip along the Highway S303. At Bamei Town, the Highway S303 divides into two “303” roads – one to the north and the other to the east leading to Danba.  At Bamei we choose the east S303 going to Danba.

The view along the 30km road from Tagong to Bamei is a bit dull and monotonous unlike the bucolic countryside from Xinduqiao to Tagong. But we do see the spectacular views of huge mantra painted on the hillslope and colorful prayer flags fluttering in the wind on the mountains.

The mantra “om mani padme hum”,  the most mysterious and yet ubiquitous mantra of Tibet. We often see the mantra painted on pebbles, rocks, stone slabs, doors, walls and even hill slopes!

We drive by a mountain with a huge mantra painted on the slope with colorful prayer flags.

Now we are at the intersection of Bamei Town – Following our nose is the north direction passing through Bamei Town; turning right (right side) will be on the S303 leading to Danba County.

Bamei is a town under the jurisdiction of Dawu County (道孚县) in Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.

Bamei Town
Now we are at the intersection of Bamei Town

On the left side of the intersection is a Sichuan restaurant.  If you are going from here to Danba,  we suggest you have lunch here because for the next 87km from Bamei to Danba there will be restaurants on the way.

Bamei Town- Danba  (87km) 八美至丹巴

We decide to skip the sit-down lunch and continue our journey east along the S313 for Danba. We eat some snacks stored in our vehicle for lunch and agree to have a big dinner this evening when we arrive Danba.

For the 87km overland trip, there are two impressive sights – Huiyuan Monastery in Xie De Town 协德乡 ( formerly the ancient Tai Ning City ) of Dawu County (道孚县) in Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture and the majestic Yala Snow Mountain at the elevation of 5820m.

The formerly Tai Ning City (  泰宁城 ) was established in 1725 during Qing Dynasty ( 1644 – 1911). The well-known general – Nian Genyao led his army stationed in the city for the defense against the aggressive Junggar tribes.

In 1728, Qing government allocated the money to build a temple by the Tai Ning City. The temple was known as Huiyuan Monastery (惠远寺) used to accommodate the 7th Dalai Lama Kelzang Gyatso in order to keep him from the threat posed by Junggar tribes.

Later on with the building of Huiyuan Temple, Tai Ning City flourished with the influx of religious pilgrims, traders from  Sichuan and Shanxi, which also enhaned the culture exchanges.

Khedrup Gyatso, the 11th Dalai Lama of Tibet was born in Xia Village near Tai Ning City in 1892.

Yala Mountain at 5820m is located on among the border area of Kangding, Daofu and Danba of Ganzi Zang Autonomous Prefecture.

The summit of Yala Mountain is shrouded with snow all year round. It is a famous holy mountain Kham area. There are ten gullies in Yala Mountain Range.
