Nyingchi is located in the lower reaches of Yarlung Zangbo River in southeastern Tibet, with an average elevation of about 3,000meters.Here
the climate is moist, and the scenery is charming. There, minorities like Monba and Lhoba ethnic groups live in a compact community, so full of
unusual ethnic flavor. Travellers around the world are attracted by its unique natural landscape-the Namjagbarwa peak, the unmatched Yarlung
Zangbo Grand Valley, and the Pagsum Lake, as well as the beautiful scenery in Zayul and Bome counties.
