Pudacuo National Park

Pudacuo National Park

Pudacuo National Park, with an area of 1300 kilometers, is the first national park in China to meet International Union for Conservation of Nature standards. It is located in Shangri-la County, Yunnan Province and owns average latitude of 3500 meters. The great intact forest ecosystem, the charming alpine meadow under the blue sky and mirror-like Plateau Lake peacefully appear in such fairyland of Pudacuo National Park. As the first national park on the Chinese mainland, Pudacuo was opened to visitors in 2007.
Pudacuo is the transliteration of “Mandala” or “Putuo”, which refers to a sacred mountain of Avalokiteshvara (Goddess of Mercy). “Putuo” or “Puda” means a boat to ferry people from sufferings. “Cuo” or “Tso” in Tibetan refers to a lake; so Pudacuo together means “Boat Lake”. Pudacuo is an unearthly world without pollution, far away from the bustle and hustle world.
This fairyland is mainly comprised of Shudu Lake, Militang Pasture and Bita Lake. Covering 15 square kilometers, Shudu Lake is 3,700 meters above the sea level and well-known for its special lake because the lake is shallow enough to be called interestingly “a place where one can fish with a wooden stick”. Taking path toward Bita Lake, you will see Militang, which is the vastest pastureland in Pudacuo Park. Being 3 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide, Bita Lake is a fault lake lying in the heart of Pudacuo Park. Along the sightseeing planked passage ashore, there are multitudes of centuries-old oak trees, spruces, firs with usneas on. The mysterious scene is so-called “Dujuanzuiyu” - “fish drunk by rhododendron”.
