Overview

The major section of the Tibet-Sichuan highway links Lhasa to Ningchi. Ningchi is a main town in Kongpo, a large district in southwest Tibet. In this eastern extremity of the Himalayas, the mighty Tsangpo makes an unexpected turn into itself. The uncommon congruence of high mountains and Tibet’s most powerful water course creates one of the deepest gorges in the world. It is a superb area for pilgrims and plant-hunters.
