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.
