The Tibetan villages of Xinduqiao is a picturesque fairyland hailed as a "Light and Shadow World" and a "photographer's paradise." It is a land of magical light, boundless grasslands, winding streams, golden cypress, rolling hills dotted with castles, and cattle and sheep that graze peacefully. This is the ideal location for picture-taking. In Xinduqiao, one can also see the Gongga Mountain peak, the Millennium Temple and other frequented palaces. What is more, the mysterious wood cliffs of Tianzangtai are only four kilometers away.
 
Xinduqiao is a small town located 437km west to chengdu and 83km west of Kangding, at the separating point of the North and South Sichuan-Tibet highway, with Ganze in the northwest and Litang in the west. The town itself is nothing more than a stopover but the area between Zheduoshan and Xinduqiao features plateau pasture scenery of rolling chain of mountains, river valleys dotted with poplars, grassland, Tibetan villages.
 
There are no obvious scenic landscapes in Xinduqiao. The area is known as "photographer’s corridor" yet looks very boring and unorganized. Along the more than ten kilometers the area covers, there are meadows, rivers, and wooden bridges. The area is dotted with Tibetan homes and blue poplars, like in the paintings of Zheng Banqiao. However, when captured by the camera’s lens, the place is transformed into something orderly, structured, and highly expressive.
 
Xinduqiao’s unique architectural style of the Tibetan villages attracts tourists from all over the country. Almost every house has a large, tiered courtyard surrounded by walls made of earth and stone, where the families plant flowers. The highest tier normally serves as an area for worship. The area between the second and third tier is used as a platform for drying clothes. Each platform has a “weixiangtai,” where cypress incense is burned. Every morning this fragrance fills the air.
