Nnamjagbarwa Mountain

Reviewed By tensaisimon - Beijing, China

We joined a bus tour to the Great Canyon of Yarlon Tsangpo. From certain points we were told to watch the Nnamijabarwa Peak. But as the mountain was covered by cloud and mist, we could not see anything halfway up. Then for a very brief moment cloulds gave way and there she was, the Peak stood like a colossal pyramid over the clouds, glowing with white snow and golden Sunshine. Majestic, exilarating and mysterious. Then in a few seconds it was covered again by mist. We were not even able to snatch a photo. That experience made us understand why she is called a Sacred one, and why we saw faithful local Tibetans kneel and kowtow towards her.

Lulang Forest

Reviewed By Scott5297 - UK

It was an interesting drive to get there from Bayi. National road 318 snaked to the left, right and upwards reaching a snow covered high before descending again.
When you get to the viewing platform you will see why it is called the "forest sea" in China - nestled between the mountainous peaks is the vast expanse of trees.
A bit further along the road, in the direction of Sichuan province, is another scenic spot where you can see the valley floor with pastures and some houses.
It's a nice trip and you see a different facet of Tibet. Best to go in the warmer months as it was a bit frosty in April

Giant Cypress Nature Reserve of Bajie, Nyingchi

Reviewed By hkgus - Hong Kong

Huge cypress trees cover an area of 10 hectares on a mountain slope 3,040m above sea level. The largest cypress is famed as 'the Best of Chinese Cypress' with the height of 52m and trunk diameter of 5.8m. It is over 2,600 years old now and is named as King of the World's Cypress. Legend has it that the tree is the soul of the Bon ancestor Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche and is called "the God of Tree" by Tibetans. There are winding paths in the wood, pavilions and ecological protection facilities. Good for a walk in the wood and/or meditate below the King Cypress.

色季拉山口海拔不到五千米。一路延山而上,雪山的壮阔慢慢在眼前展现。我们到达山口的时候正在下雪,让人非常兴奋。由于海拔上升,容易产生头晕的感觉,因此一定要放慢行动。

Reviewed By Wilcoxm51 - Kingston upon Thames, United Kingdom

This monastery makes a good stop if you are passing through the area. The buildings are interesting and see the devotion of the local population is inspiring we saw several young boys doing there 100,000 prostrations. Watch out for the goats they can be pretty aggressive

I enjoyed Kadinggou because I have a tour guide who patiently take photo and explain to us where the interesting attractions are. It is hard or impossible to see them without her help. The air is fresh and cool in the mid of September.

Biri Mountain

Reviewed By Jenmia28 - Shanghai, China

After a looonnngggg drive from Lhasa (8+hrs) we were glad to arrive but damn it was the most overrated 'natural reserve/museum' there can be.
It was on top of a mountain by Linzhi town but it was quite man-made, the only animals we saw was the black wild pigs/boars and 2 heifers.
The museum was dead, and the taxidermy of the animals in the museum is just plain weird. Not worth the entry tix (I think it was 120rmb?)
We stayed there for almost an hr but it was an hr too long...

Nichi Temple

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor China Member

尼赤寺位于有着西藏江南美誉的林芝地区,是一座不太显山露水的规模不是很大的寺庙,但是尼赤寺的色彩确实相当明快和艳丽的。寺庙的大殿外,一棵古老的松柏树显得很有气魄,据说是已经有上百年的历史了。
