Also known as the “Splendid Vale,” the Spruce Plateau is a vast meadow nestled behind a pristine primeval forest. Situated at the foot of the awe-inspiring Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, this enchanting landscape is enveloped by majestic spruce trees, creating an idyllic environment reminiscent of a fairy’s abode.

The Spruce Plateau boasts an altitude of over 3,000 meters (approximately 9,843 feet), offering visitors a breathtaking panorama of verdant meadows that exude tranquility and beauty. During the spring and summer seasons, the plateau comes alive with lush green grasses and vibrant flowers adorning the landscape. As autumn arrives, the foliage transforms into a mesmerizing display of orange hues, while winter blankets the plateau in pristine white snow, casting a serene charm over the surroundings.

Amidst this picturesque backdrop, various animals such as yaks, marmots, and goats can be seen leisurely grazing, adding to the pastoral charm of the scene. In the distance, the imposing Jade Dragon Snow Mountain towers majestically into the sky, seemingly overseeing the meadow with a watchful gaze.

The Spruce Plateau is separated from the towering mountain by a dense forest that skirts the edge of the plateau. Within this forest, tall trees stand proudly amidst scattered deadwood and vibrant lichen, creating an otherworldly ambiance akin to a fairyland untouched by the passage of time.

For visitors, the Spruce Plateau offers a serene retreat into nature’s embrace, where one can immerse themselves in the beauty and tranquility of this enchanting landscape. Whether it’s a leisurely stroll through the meadows, a hike amidst the ancient forest, or simply a moment of quiet contemplation, the Spruce Plateau promises an unforgettable experience in the heart of nature’s splendor.
