East Line Day 1: Lhasa - Mira Yamaguchi - Basongco - Nyingchi


The reason why the first arrangement of the East, because Nyingchi area generally lower altitude, oxygen is relatively rich, for those who have just entered the Tibet, it is easier to adapt. Nyingchi City (Note: from Nyingchi area in 2015 to Nyingchi City) 410 km from Lhasa, there are nearly 200 km of highways, the rest of the national road, about 8 hours by car, all the way to go through the highest point of Sichuan-Tibet Highway Mira Yamaguchi and Red God of God Lake Basong measures.

This is Lhasa to Nyingchi tourist line on a resting place, there are blessings to help you hang the streamer of the local people, blue sky and white clouds with colorful prayer flags always have a kind of holy and pure feeling. By the Sichuan-Tibet line into the Tibetan ride or travel by car will be to the Mira Yamaguchi stone before the group photo taken, because the Mira Yamaguchi is the last one on the Sichuan-Tibet line is the highest elevation of a mountain.

Overnight Nyingchi City. Dinner can enjoy the famous Lulang stone pot in Nyingchi City, wild mushroom fungus with chicken, very delicious, out of the fragrance of people memorable. Head office is located in Nyingchi mountain road.

East Line Day 2: Nyingchi - Lulang - Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon - Gyaca County(Lhoka)


Early in the morning from Lynch to 70 kilometers east of the town of Lulang. In the road to the Lulang first to go through the altitude of 4900 meters of the color Sejila Mountain Pass, winding road non-stop turning around the mountain up, the basic position has not changed, the vertical height of the elevation suddenly rose, Lu Lang Linhai all the way, Accompanied by the morning mountain water vapor, misty as fairyland in general.

Sejila Mountain, Namjagbarwa. In the Sejila Mountain National Forest Park, you can enjoy the typical mountain vertical landscape, from the top of the snow to the coniferous forest, and then to the broad-leaved forest, very complete. It is also the best place to look at the Nanjibawa Peak, which overlooks the sea at the Yamaguchi, looking up at the highest peak of the eastern Himalayas, the highest peak of the world, the world's fifteenth peak, 7782 meters above sea level. Because Nanfeng is located in the depths of the Brahmaputra Grand Canyon, rich in water and water, so less than 100 days a year can be seen. If you can see it, luck is not it!

Lulang known as the East Switzerland, clouds, mountains, possession of houses, pastures, fences, water, very quiet and wonderful picture. I suggest that friends who come from Lhasa to Nyingchi, be sure to take some more, because Lulang is where you are not sure to come to Nyingchi!

Lulang stone pot chicken. In the town of Lulang can enjoy the most famous stone pot in Tibet, the price of 300 or so in the pot, the town dozens of optional, personal taste of more than a dozen, and feel pretty good The Lulang stone pot is made of special mineral elements of the mica stone cut chisel, this stone is only produced in Medog, to rely on the back of the back from Medog, and then by the door of the people with the whole stone carefully hand-chisel system, processing When the requirements of the starting strength of symmetry, once impatient, soap stone was chiseled, so the price of this stone pot is also very expensive. Stone pot chicken to local specialty palm to participate in chicken as raw material, the stone pot simmered, the flavor is very unique, soup flavor has a touch of herbs fragrance, chicken tender and flexible.

Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon. After lunch in Lulang, proceed to the most representative attractions of Nyingchi - Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon. As the world's largest canyon, the scenic area attracts tens of thousands of tourists every day. I personally feel that the ticket price slightly pit father (ticket sightseeing car is 240 yuan, scenic buffet is 50 yuan, choose not to eat), but not to regret. To go here is not directed at the Grand Canyon, and directed at the Nanjia Bawa peak. Grand Canyon Scenic Area in the depths of the straight village at the foot of the Nanfeng Mountain, is near the concept of the best location of Nanjia Baya. If you are lucky enough, you can also see the sunshine Jinshan of Nanjia Bawa. I have seen in 2009 and 13 years, the sunshine Jinshan Nanjia Bawa peak, really beautiful to the Meili Snow Mountain are not accessible. The end of the Grand Canyon tour, the next stop to go to Gacha (Ramla wrong county). Overnight checkered.


  • Really spectacular Yarlung Zangbo River big bend in this area is not see, where can you see it? There are two places: First, from the Grand Canyon Scenic Area sightseeing bus station straight white village car or walk on foot, to the village of Gala. But this line is unconventional route, the general tourists are not arrived; the second is to go to Medog on the road called fruit pond can also see the Yarlung Zangbo River big bend.
  • In the Grand Canyon to check the road, there is a scenic area called Nanyi ditch, tickets 200 yuan, which is only the original forest, there is no bright spot to see. Suggest that you ignore.

East Line Day 3: Gyaca County - Lhamo Latso - Yongbulakang - Tsedang


One of the attractions that we would like to visit is the mysterious Lhamo Latso (it is said to be able to see his past life) and the first palace in Tibet Yongbulakang (also Songzan Gambo and Princess Wencheng summer summer palace). Overnight in Tsedang.

Lhamo Latso is located in the mountains of a mountain lakes, in the Tibetan language means "the soul of the lake", its shape is similar to the human skull, the Tibetan people think it is auspicious days of the skull of the woman. Although the area is not large, but in the Tibetan Buddhist reincarnation system, it has a special status. Every year to visit the Dalai Lama, the Panchen Lama and other big living Buddha reincarnation of the soul before, have to look at this view of the lake phase. Every year the Tibetan calendar four to six months, many good men and women come here to pilgrimage view. It is said that many people look at each other, see each other, as long as you devout wait and see, you can see through the lake past life and the next life, the so-called "view of the lake" is her, and therefore has a very mysterious color.

Tickets: 50 yuan. Traffic: from Gyaca County chartered to go, do not package tickets off the season 100 people. It takes about half an hour driving from Gacha County to Ramra Park, and then it takes more than an hour to drive from the top of the park along the winding road to Ramla. To reach the mountain parking lot after the need to climb a 30 meters high mountain, in order to see the true capacity of Ramla wrong.


  • Generally in May to October to go more appropriate winter snow may be road closure. The road around the lake can not go, you can only go to viewing platform.
  • Altitude 5330 meters, the air is thin, viewing platform is not high, but it is not easy to climb up, take a few steps to take a break, do not worry.
  • To the top of the mountain do not loud noise, do not disturb the devout eyes of the believers.
  • Do not leave any rubbish on the mountain, otherwise it will be regarded as disrespectful to the holy lake.

Yongbulakang is the first palace in the history of Tibet, but also the year Songtsan Gambo and Wencheng Princess summer summer land, dating back two thousand years. Yongbulakang is located 11 kilometers away from Tsedang Zhaxiciri mountain, the temple is not large, but the towering hills, condescending, very imposing. Standing on the tower with lofty ideals, Yalong Valley scenery and rural scenery panoramic view. Scenic spot tickets 50 yuan, the palace is not open to visit.


  • At the foot of the mountain there is a small commodity market, there are a dozen stalls to sell some Tibetan crafts, such as bracelets, beads and the like, the price is cheaper, but also easy to bargain, buy play or can.
  • Walk up the mountain with the shape of the steps, in order to prevent altitude sickness, it is best to climb a little slower, about half an hour can climb to the. Next to the queue can also be paid to take another way to walk on the road, 30 yuan / person.

East Line Day 4: Tsedang - Yamdrok - Lhasa


Today from the Tsedang back to Lhasa, along the way for the first time through one of the three holy lakes in Tibet - the Lake Yamdrok (the reason is the first time, because the back of the line will be the way to Sheep Lake, so you appreciate the different Angle of the Lake Yamdrok).

Lake Yamdrok refered to as Sheep Lake, and Lake Manasarovar, Lake Namtso and said the three sacred lake in Tibet, is also my favorite (Lake Namtso in the north of Lhasa, one day round and round; Lake Manasarovar in the Ali region, climate and the environment are more difficult). Sheep Lake is located in Lhoka area Langka County territory, light blue lake, warm and jade, put a blue ribbon scattered in the mountains, the lake elevation of 4100 meters, standing in the snow-capped mountains, surrounded by snow-capped mountains, To the light of the refraction of the holy lake more dazzling. Lake color is better than Qinghai Lake and Lake Namtso! Sheep Lake is the end of the southeast of Tibet, Tibet is also the starting point of the ring line. If you want to visit the viewing platform, tickets 40 yuan.

traffic: Lhasa to Shigatse's bus is a new road, no longer through the Sheep Lake. So if you want to go to the Sheep Lake tour, only chartered, ride or participate in day tour.


  • if shot the Sheep Lake, then, away from the lake in the lake can be photographed. The Galaxy at night is also very spectacular. August to be able to shoot rape!
  • starting from Lhasa to the Sheep Lake also day trip, some morning departure, some starting from the afternoon. Recommended to choose the afternoon starting, because the morning clouds too much to block the lake, can not see clearly. Afternoon sun just in front, although some backlight, but personally see the sheep lake color is the most beautiful.
  • may be checked on the way identity card, please prepare the identity card in advance.

Visit the Sheep Lake, all the way back to Lhasa rest, tomorrow ready to Shigatse and Everest West Line four-day tour. Stay in Lhasa today.

The Korola Glacier is the world's most recent glacier, the movie "Red River Valley", "Cloud Water Rumor" have been framed here. At first glance, the huge ice tongue spread from the mountains down, one attached to one, completely different from any snow-capped mountains of the scenery, although it is a large white, but that branch of Leng Leng's shape, full of power, people Can not help but lament and fear. Highway side of the Tibetan side of the viewing platform can take pictures, but charges 50. To participate in carpool day tour, the local familiar master of the driver can generally find no charge and vision and great view of the attractions, stop the car to take pictures of visitors, photos are also enough shock.


  • 10 years ago, we can take pictures of the roadside can touch the ice tongue, and now has been degraded to 300 meters away, so some places you do not go, may never see.
  • Go to sheep lake direction, and there is a small hill after a distance from glacier charges, and there is no one to come to charge because it is far from glacier, so no one will come and collect money ... We can see that it is very close Glacier, particularly good view. There have been drivers of the master with the national geography to see this.

In order to protect the ecological environment of Everest, the base camp does not allow the existence of permanent buildings, in addition to simple toilet. Local collectors took these tents to facilitate the accommodation, to the closure of these tents will be demolished. So the accommodation is very difficult. A tent sleeping seven or eight people, beds are located in the middle, the middle of the fire, you can boil water, heating. Dinner is generally instant noodles. Night can shoot Everest star and star track. The next morning can shoot Everest sunrise.

Everest tickets 180 yuan per person into the mountain fee of 100 yuan, which 280 yuan I think enough to spend enough.


  • To Everest base camp, need to apply for defense in advance. When you buy a day trip, the travel agency is usually included.
  • From the base camp to the tourists can be close to Mount Everest's recent viewing point, or a section of the road, where you can choose to take the scenic tourist car, from 25 / person.
