High on the border of Sichuan and Tibet lies a small town nestled in rolling moorland and open country called Daocheng. The area is best visited in late May beginning of April as the wild flowers are plentiful and the weather is warm and sunny. Traveling to Daocheng is definitely not for those of you looking for a casual trip or weekend away, as getting there takes time traveling on dirt roads over high mountain passes. However its well worth it to see this place, as all but for the town centre is forgotten by time, where yaks walk in the streets and red cloaked monks walk weary mile on mile, mumbling prayers as they move their strings of beads round in constant motion.
