Yading can be of a spiritual nature because of its magnificent monaseries, remote retreats and pilgrim paths. Yading is a national level reserve in Daocheng County, in the southwest of Sichuan Province, China. It is a mountain sanctuary and major Tibetan pilgrimage site comprising three peaks sanctified by the 5th Dalai Lama. The peaks are seen as emanations of the three boddhisatvas Chenrezig, Jampayang and Chenadoje.represent ‘compassion’,  ‘wisdom’, and‘power’ in Tibetan Buddhism, and for the past 800 years, disciples have dedicated themselves to circling them to demonstrate their devotion. Walking the 35km holy hike (kora) around the highest, 6032m-high Chenresig, requires bringing your own gear to camp overnight. If you don’t have the time (or energy) for a full circuit, other opportunities for shorter hikes, camping, and horse trekking near these peaks abound.

Litang (4015m) is a bustling little nomadic town, one of the highest in the world, known as the 'birthplace of holy men', the 7th and 10th Dalai Lamas among them. Morning visit Choekhorling Monastery siting on a small hill overlooking the whole town. Litang surrounded by open grassland, framed by snow capped peaks. Another unique horse festival takes place here. Nomadic Tibetans from the area and far away get together with their families and friends, pitch their tents, and watch the event that includes horse racing, Yak race, dances and cultural performances.
