Speaking of Tibet, we all know that it is one of China’s five autonomous regions for ethnic minorities and also our most important southwestern frontier. Tibet borders India, Bhutan, Nepal and other countries and regions. At the same time, due to the influence of topography, topography and atmospheric circulation, Tibet has a unique and complex climate, which creates conditions for Tibetan border towns.
Lhozhag County is a small border town not known by many people. It is located in shannan city, Tibet autonomous region of China. It is adjacent to cuomei and wrong counties in the southeast, longkazi County in the northwest and Bhutan in the south. It’s not a big place, it’s not a big population, but the canyon scenery here is amazing, and it’s such a small town, but it gives people a unique feeling.
Lhozhag County is one of the small border towns in China, and also one of the border counties in the Tibet autonomous region. It means “southern great cliff” in Tibetan. From the geographical location, Lhozhag County is located in southern Tibet, the southern foot of the Himalayas, the middle of the County is a grand canyon – Lhozhag ditch. Lhozhag not only has the extremely beautiful natural scenery, but also has countless historical and cultural heritages. Starting from Lhasa, it goes through yamdrok yong-tso, longkaz county, pumu yong-tso, kuragang rifeng and then to Lhozhag. Lakes, grasslands, snow mountains, rivers, the scenery along the way, will be dizzying. In addition, Lhozhag County has a large elevation difference. After visiting Lhozhag County, you can see the scenery of different styles. It can be said that “a mountain has four seasons and ten miles have different days”.
The southeastern part of Lhozhag has a subtropical sub-humid and humid climate with more precipitation and less sunshine. Northwest for the plateau temperate semi-arid monsoon climate zone, less rain and more wind, dry climate, sufficient sunshine. The complex terrain and changeable climate form the natural landscape of lejenggou waterfall, kuragang rifeng, lapu hot spring, baimarin lake, caihong ditch and so on. In Lhozhag, the seka guto temple, lalong temple, kajiu temple, zhuowa temple, luo zhuo wo long temple, Lhozhag cliff carvings, tubo ancient tombs, etc., although there is no mirage, but after a thousand years, still reverberated the most distant chanting.
But in Lhozhag, it doesn’t sound too far to get from one place to another, maybe only a few dozen kilometers, but sometimes it takes a whole day to drive! In addition to the steep roads, the climate in Lhozhag gully is also variable. Sometimes the sun shines in one place, but it may be raining in another; Sometimes a place to go when you can still pass, perhaps when you come back was blocked by a cave…
The reason why Lhozhag gully forms such a landform of mountains, high valleys and deep valleys is that in geological structure, Lhozhag County as a whole is the main part of the west axis of the eastern end of the Himalayan fold mountain system, and the main part of the structure is anticline, located on three fault zones. During the uplift of the Himalayan movement, the mountains in the territory were majestic and the surface was fragmented.
Driving around the Lhozhag ditch, the mountain roads here are far more than “eighteen turns”, but turn after turn. It’s like a slide show of a very different kind of scenery: half an hour ago, it was by a fast-flowing river, now it’s winding its way up a mountainside; Just after a piece of highland barley, there are no trees around, turning the hill is a forest; Even one side of the mountain is desolate, the other side of the mountain trees are green, in sharp contrast.
