Luoji Mountain: A Surreal Getaway In Nature
IF YOU ASK THE LOCALS ABOUT THEIR FAVOURITE GETAWAY SPOT, LUOJI MOUNTAIN WOULD DEFINITELY BE ONE TO THE TOP ANSWERS. THE MOUNTAIN IS ONLY AN HOUR DRIVE FROM DOWNTOWN XICHANG. BUT IT FEELS LIKE A WORLD AWAY FROM EVERY MODERN SOCIETY.
With 2,400 km2 of natural wonders, Luoji Mountain commands a number of spectacular peaks and attractive sceneries that change dramatically from season to season. During winter, the peaks are covered in snow and the glacial flows and lakes freeze, but as spring arrives, colours return to the mountain with flowers blossoms and the lakes sparkle in bright blues and greens.
Luoji Mountain can be an excellent one day trip from Xichang. However, if you are planning an overnight or a camping trip, the village at the foot of the mountain provides a number of guesthouses, but accommodation option gets smaller very quickly as you climb up the mountain.
