The Karuo Cultural Site, located in Karuo Village, 12 kilometers southeast of Qamdo Town, is one of the earliest known Neolithic cultural relics in Tibet. Karuo, Tibetan means castle.
The Karuo site was discovered in 1977 and covers an area of 1,800 square kilometers. There are more than 30 ruins of houses unearthed. The houses are divided into two types: grass mud wall and stone wall. After scientific identification, it is about 4600 years ago.
The Karuo culture is not a primitive culture developed in isolation on the Tibetan Plateau, but is more or less related to the primitive culture of the upper and middle reaches of the Yellow River. The excavated materials show that humans have reproduced and lived here in the Tibetan Plateau since ancient times and opened up this vast land.
The ancient walls and ruins are the ruins of the Neolithic Age.
