Ngari: located in the western part of Tibet autonomous region, with an average elevation of 4500 meters, Ngari is the “roof ridge of the roof of the world”, which is supported by the Himalayas, gangdi mountains, karakoram mountains and kunlun mountains. Ngari is one of the origins of the ancient civilization on the qinghai-tibet plateau.

The more we explore the magic and beauty of Ngari, the more we can find the surprises brought to us by this land. It is famous for its high temperature, but it is also full of rivers and lakes. The gangdise mountains meet the Himalayas here, and the Brahmaputra, Indus and Ganges originate here. Looking down from the sky, the blue lake changes color, let us follow the most beautiful attractions, enjoy the “repeat one’s mistakes wrong to wonderland” magnificent.
The eastern section of bangong lake is located in China. It is a freshwater area with abundant aquatic plants and beautiful aquatic life, attracting tens of thousands of waterbirds to breed and live. There are many islands in the lake, including mouse island, moon island, swan island, grass island and bird island, among which bird island is the most famous. Every year between may and August, thousands of birds of all kinds breed on the island, which is a spectacular sight.
Kangrinboqe is a world recognized sacred mountain, which is also recognized as the center of the world by Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, and ancient jainism. Every year, thousands of believers from all over the world go to Kangrinboqe. Many mountains in Tibet are deified, but Kangrinboqe, which means “baby snow mountain” in Tibetan and means “shiva’s paradise” in Sanskrit, is considered the “god’s paradise” in Hindu mythology.
Lake Manasarovar is on a par with the sacred mountain of Kangrinboqe. One of the three holy lakes in Tibet, its vastness, serenity and clarity alone are enough to shock anyone who treks along the way. It is located south of Kangrinboqe, the sacred mountain, on the north side of the namunani snow peak. Believers believe that the holy water here can wash away the “five poisons” in people’s minds (greed, anger, delusion, laziness, jealousy) and remove the dirt from people’s skin. Indians respect Lake Manasarovar because the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi, a famous Indian leader, are scattered in the Lake. So every summer and autumn, pilgrims from India, Nepal and Tibet make pilgrimages to the Lake and bathe there.
