Tagongs Main Street

With an altitude of 3,700 m and it is half way between Kangding and Litang. It is known for scenic grasslands and local Tibetan Buddhist culture.

Many official buses and private vans/cars leave from Kangding in the morning. There are buses going at 6 in the morning in the direction of Tagong, however their final destination is Garze and you have to pay the full price. Probably the easiest (and as cheap as bus) way is to find a taxi at taxi parking in Kangding (across the river from Yak market). The price is ¥50 per person (4 person/car) and you can ask driver to stop at viewpoints, which is definitely worth it.

Hiking. Really good option for discovering Tagong grassland is to rent a motorbike in Tagong, you will find many option around the town. There are no manual scooters in Tagong; you should be able to shift on motorbike.

Most people come here to relax and visit the grasslands and maybe hiking or take horse tour.
