7. Bome - The 'Tibetan Switzerland'

Sitting along the south line of the Tibet-Sichuan Highway, Bome's breathtaking scenery comes from the mountains and lakes. The county of Bome, which is situated in southeast Tibet, is the home of the Kaqin glacier, the largest marine type glacier in China. In May and April, Bome has large areas of peach blossoms and highland barley that enhance the area's beauty.

Bome's Ranwu Lake is called "the Tibetan Switzerland." The lake is set more than 3,800 meters above sea level and has an area of 22,000 square km. The seasons dictate the water's color, which ranges from aquamarine to turquoise. When the sun rises, the lake looks like a mirror reflecting snow-capped mountains, white clouds and the surrounding forest.
