Nyingchi Travel Guide

Nyingchi means “Throne of the Sun” in the Tibetan language, which indicates it’s the place where the sun rises. It is located in the southwest of Tibet Autonomous Region, at an average elevation about 3,100 meters. The famous Himalayas and Nyenchen Tanglha Mountains in the west are like two parallel dragons protecting this peaceful land with the Hengduan Mountains in the east. The deepest canyon in the world - the Grand Brahmaputra Canyon is also located in Nyingchi. Due to the special geography conditions, the climate in Nyingchi is pleasant for living, which makes the natural scenery is as splendid as the south of the Yangtze. That’s why it is called “the Jiangnan in Tibet”; for western tourists, it’s “the Switzerland in Tibet” as well.

Nyingchi is the paradise made by snow mountains, forests, and canyons. You will feel romantic when you are here. There is a famous story that spread widely in Nyingchi. “I have been begging Buddha for five hundred years, for meeting you at my most beautiful age. The Buddha turned me into a tree, growing on the road you will pass by...”


The best time to travel to Nyingchi is from March to May, and September to October. Because December to February is cold, while June to August is the monsoon.
