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.

With large number of river valleys and alpine gorges, Nyingchi is regarded as the "Switzerland of Tibet", and renowned for its picturesque green mountains and clear water, which is completely different from most parts of Tibet – a plateau region with an average elevation of over 4,000 meters.
