“New Journey to the West” (Tân Tây du ký) là chương trình thực tế du lịch của Na PD trên kênh TvN. Nội dung chương trình là đi đến các điểm nổi tiếng của Trung Quốc, khám phá phong cảnh, văn hóa địa phương, lồng ghép trong từng nhiệm vụ “thu thập ngọc thiêng” của PD. Mùa 2 của chương trình chọn điểm đến là Thành Đô (Tứ Xuyên) và Lệ Giang (Vân Nam). Hàn Quốc quả là vô địch trong khoản quảng bá du lịch. Mình xem xong phần này, tự dưng muốn đi du lịch Trung Quốc, mặc dù trước đó, chưa từng có ý định này.

📌 28 Bends portion of the TLG trek
It is a 20 mins drive from the entrance of Tiger Leaping Gorge to the Naxi Inn, which is at the entry of 28 Bends portion of the TLG trek. It is an Inn where tourists can stay during the trip. It is popular among trekkers and has tasty food as well as wifi.
Recommended itinerary from RossGB (tripadvisor): Start hiking from Janes after late breakfast or your trip down from Shangrila or Lijiang. You can also leave your larger bags here if you wish. We left Jane’s at about 1130. At a relaxing pace, stopping and enjoying the vistas, chilling out, we made it to Naxi Guesthouse at around 1500. Put down your bags and relax. No sense to try to get up the mountain. Stay overnight and enjoy the cozy fire and company of other adventurers. Next morning, get up at 0800. Hike the bends, stop for lunch at Halfway Lodge. Continue hiking down to Tinas. You should be there around 1500 or 1600 if you are going at a Chill pace. Note, the most difficult part of the hike is NOT the 28 Bends going up, it is the rocky trail going DOWN to Tina’s. Be careful hear and don’t even think about attempting this in bad weather if it is wet (rocks, mud, etc., lose footing). Spend the night in Walnut Grove. The next morning, catch a taxi or bus wherever you need to get to from Walnut Grove.

The Naxi 纳西族/Nàxī zú/ (Nạp Tây tộc) — one of China’s fifty-five ethnic minority nationalities—traditionally practiced the Dongba (东巴）religion. Dongba has distinct artistic expressions, though it reflects influences from Bon, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Mongolian shamanism, and popular cults. In the past, the script was used mainly by the Dongba priests, to write sacred texts of the pre-Buddhist religion of Tibet, known as Bön. The Naxi Donga script consists predominantly of pictograms, symbols (ideograms) and syllabic signs, being most probably (one of) the last pictographic writing systems in the world. Although at present the script is hardly and rarely used for sacral (i.e. original) purposes (very few Dongba priests stay alive), its popularity among the Naxi community is growing, and the script is becoming more and more visible as used also for everyday purposes, e.g. in tourist and commercial services.
