travel to Tibet: Namjagbarwa Peak

Located in Nyingchi Region of Tibet, Namjagbarwa Peak, is not common at all. With a height of 7,782-meters, it’s the 15th highest peak in the world. According to the Chinese National Geography's October Issue, it’s the NO.1 among the " Top Ten Most Beautiful Mountains in China". Travelers, who yearns for the beauty of natural paradise, will certainly get an incredible experience from the picturesque landscape.

In Tibetan, Namjagbarwa means a "long lance piercing into the sky”. The sky-scraping Namjagbarwa Peak, with its majestic appearance, precipitous shape and unpredictable climate, has been an ambitious aim of mountain-climbing organizations from various countries. Existed for over 700 million years, it’s first conquered by a Sino-Japanese mountaineering team in 1992.

From the foot of Namjagbarwa, upwards to the 7,782 meters summit, tourists can enjoy the following sequence of ecological systems: tropical low mountain evergreen or semi-evergreen monsoon rain forests; sub-tropical mountain evergreen and semi-evergreen broadleaf forests; warm temperate mid-mountain evergreen conifer forests; sub-frigid alpine bushes and grassy marshland; and sub-frigid alpine ice source and frigid ultra-alpine ice and snow. This great abundance of mountain eco-systems, mountain vegetation forms and bio-communities is compressed in one tight area; it can be rated the best in the world, and as a world natural museum of mountain vegetation forms.
