Amazing scenery in Danba valley
Danba lies along the eastern border of the Ganzi Tibet Autonomous Region which lies in western Sichuan. The county is not far from Ya'an in the southeast, Kangding in the south and Daofu in the west. The county varies greatly in altitude, from peaks that are as high as 5,820 meters to river valleys as low as 1,700 meters. The Big Jinchuan and Small Jinchuan Rivers meet here, marking the beginning of the Dadu River. The county's landscape is vertically changing, from the high-altitude snow-capped mountains, to glaciers and the low altitude grasslands and valleys. The main population here is composed of ethnic Tibetans. The girls from Danba are famed to be the prettiest in the region, giving the valley a second nickname, "Beauty Valley." Beautiful local women clothed in their magnificent traditional dresses are a photographic treat for tourists and serious photographers alike. [Photo Source: Xinhua Net]
