Nyingchi > Lunang Forest > Nyingchi





● After landing in China, take a China domestic flight, eg. Chengdu to Nyingchi (2,990 m), where the altitude is much lower than in Lhasa (3,656 m), and altitude sickness is not a concern

● Your Tibetan guide and driver will pick you up at Nyingchi Milin Airport

● Followed by a very sublime stretch of ride. To start, the road winds around the back of the forested holy Mt Bonri (4,500 m). The slow crawl up to Serkhym-la Pass (4,582 m) takes you through a magical landscape of rolling fields of azaleas, sharp distant peaks, and rushing streams cutting through deep gullies. As you head down from the pass, you will see dramatic views of shark-toothed Namche Barwa (7,756 m) and Gyala Pelri (7,151 m)

Lunang Forest (3,700 m), a typical plateau-mountain-meadow, about 15km long and 1km wide. Known as a fairyland where gods live, it is breathtakingly beautiful with different scenery in every season. Local nomads scatter on the meadow together with the wild animals form a dreamy paradise Afterwards, drive to Bayi (2,994 m), the small county capital of Nyingtri, to spend the night
