In 1935, during the Long March, soldiers of the Fourth Regiment of the Chinese Workers and Peasants' Army secured the bridge as a river crossing vital to the Red Army.
Kangding: About 280 km west of Chengdu and is both an ethnically Tibetan and Han Chinese township located in the historical Tibetan region of Kham. A raging river splits the city, thus the constant sound of water emanates throughout much of the city. The city features a sizable city square where young and old alike gather in the early hours of the morning to do Tai Chi, play badminton, etc. A monastery sits on the mountains overlooking the city, and is accessible by cable car. As of October 2006 a stone amphitheatre is under construction at the upper monastery. The famous folk song "Kangding Qingge" enjoys popularity throughout China. Kangding contains some Buddhist monasteries of note, including Nanwu Si Monastery, Anque Monastery and Jinggang Monastery.

Xinduqia A small town located 80km west of Kangding, at the separating point of the North and South Sichuan-Tibet highway, with Ganzi in the northwest and Litang in the west. The town itself is nothing more than a stopover but the area between Mt. Zheduo and Xinduqiao features plateau pasture scenery of rolling chain of mountains, river valleys dotted with poplars, grassland, and Tibetan villages. It's renowned as "the paradise of photographers", offering seasonal stunning views, especially in the autumn.
Changqingchun Keer Monastery: Changqingchun Keer monastery, founded in 1580 at the behest of the Third Dalai Lama and one of the largest Gelugpa monasteries in China, is today somewhat dilapidated but still populated by over a thousand monks. From the Gesar statue, walk uphill to the intersection, turn left, and follow the road. At the entrance is a large stupa and pile of brightly-painted mani stones left by pilgrims for good luck, whose inscriptions have been carved to resemble yaks. The upper of Changqingchun Keer monastery is the more interesting and older of the two, its portico flanked by aggressively postured statues of guardians of the four directions, along with a typical, finely executed mural of a three-eyed demon wearing tiger skins and skulls, holding the wheel of transmigration. Inside are statues of Tsongkhapa and the Third Dalai Lama, along with photos of the current Dalai Lama and tenth Panchen Lama. Side gates in the wall allow you to hike up onto the hills behind the monastery, sharing the flower-filled pasture with yaks, or join pilgrims circuiting the walls to the sky burial ground to the right of the main gates.

Glistening, soul-stirring ice cliffs are everywhere at the head of the glacier; at its leading edge extends into sub-tropical evergreen broadleaf forests. The glacier descends through four distinctly different seasons of scenery. Here snowy mountains, glaciers, forests, lakes, villages and temples co-exist in harmony, creating a sequence of unique vistas: the worlds of atmosphere, of ice and snow, of rocks, of water, and of living creatures.
