With an average altitude of over 4500 meters, Ngari is located in the westernmost part of the Tibetan Plateau. It is the interlaced place of the Himalayas, the Gangdise, the Kunlun Mountains and other majestic mountain ranges. This mysterious land is the least populated area in the world except for no man's land. In Ngari, you will find the vast and desolate of the extraordinary landscape as far as you can see. Every mountain and river here is endowed with divinity. There are holy lakes, huge glaciers, vast grasslands, spectacular snowy mountains, as well as clay forests and ruins.

In the vast land of Ngari, every scene seems to be sighing at the smallness of life and the vastness of nature. Walking into this land, time seems to go back a million years. It's like entering the unopened world of prehistory, leaving only piety and awe in your heart. And there are soaring eagles and running antelopes, as well as the most dazzling starry sky in the world. In addition, the charm of Ngari is also shown in some famous attractions, such as Mt. Kailash--the mountains of the gods, Lake Manasarovar--one of the great three lakes in Tibet, Zanda Clay Forest--the masterpiece of nature, Tholing Monastery--flying monastery, Guge Kingdom--lost glory, Pangong Lake--a paradise for birds, etc.

Lake Manasarovar is the most transparent fresh water lake in China. It supports life while the salt lake Rakshas Tal lies next to it supports no life.
