Nyingchi is located in the southeastern part of the Tibet Autonomous Region. It means "The Throne of the Sun" in Tibetan. The climate here is humid so it is also known as the Jiangnan of Tibet. Unlike other parts of Tibet, the Nyingchi area is known for its rich vegetation and well-preserved original ecological features. Many rivers such as the Yarlung Zangbo River run through the canyons of the Nyingchi region. There are quiet villages, waterfalls and other vast landscapes on both sides of the river. It has been hailed as “Switzerland in Tibet."
