Amazing China: Peach blossoms blooming in Nyingchi, Tibet
Nyingchi in the southeast of Tibet is known for its beautiful peach flowers, which are blooming in March and early April.
With an average altitude of 3,100 meters above the sea level, much lower than the average height of more than 4,000 meters in Tibet, and more green vegetation, Nyingchi has long been a recommended resort for first-time visitors looking to acclimate to the high-altitude plateau environment.
In 2015, Nyingchi posted a record high GDP of 10.4 billion yuan (about 1.6 billion U.S. dollars), up 11.2 percent from the previous year. Tourism contributed to a quarter of the city’s economic growth.
