5. Mainling - Fairyland on earth

Xiangbala, known as the fairyland for the immortals, sits in the Tibetan county of Mainling and is free from the disturbance of industrialization. It sits in the arms of forests, rivers and the snow mountains.

Mainling boasts many natural phenomenons. The Yaluzangbu Grand Canyon is the largest canyon in the world. The mist-crowned Namcha Barwa Peak is the world's 15th highest. Water flows backward at the confluence of Yaluzangbu and Niyang. Also, Mainling has the Gega natural hot spring and the well-preserved primitive forest of Nayi Zhagong Valley.

Mainling is home to more than 720 kinds of seed plants, including pine trees, ferns and azaleas. Additionally waterfalls and glaciers dot the Mainling landscape.
