Hot Scenic Spots

Tibet, lies in the north-east of the Himalayas. And Tibet is special, not only for its geographical position, the unique local customs, the spectacular nature scenery, the devoted Tibetan people, the special region tone in every corner of this place… It is a magical place. Its high altitude makes people think that Tibet is remote and inaccessible, and also regarded as the last piece of pure land in this world.
