Lulang Forest Sea
Lulang means long king valley in the Tibetan language better described as a place to make anyone forget home. Lulang Forest is a plateau forest situated in Lulang town in Nyingchi County on the Sichuan- Tibet highway at an elevation of 3700 meters. The forest occupies an area of 1Kilometers wide and 15 kilometers long covered by alpines, different plants and villages nestled in the middle of glacier mountains. When seen from a distance under a pillow of clouds and glacier peaked mountains, the alpine trees form idyllic scenery depicting the most decorated natural feature.
The forest has delightful scenery as the seasons progress from summer when the flowers bloom, streams gurgle and grasslands thrive to autumn when all the leaves turn yellow and later red except the evergreen pines to the cold winter when snow falls on the forest and the glaciers shower the whole area with a white blanket. Locals also always scatter in the forest at all times to hang out and relax with nature, interacting with wild animals and getting lost in the beauty of nature.
