Since visitors are always attracted by Tibet, they regard it as a hot tourist destination. "I like the warm sunshine casting on the Potala Palace in winter, the unique glamor of Nyingchi in spring, the pristine Lingka Woods Festival in Xigaza in summer and the spacious and deserted Ngari in autumn. I fell in love with Tibet before arrival and it becomes part of my life after I left it."
Following are the pictures depicting charms of the four seasons.
Key words of spring: peach blossoms, traditional festival
Blessed with mild climate and the fertile land, Nyingchi is called "Tibet's Jiangnan", an area situated to the south of the Yangtze River ,full of beautiful landscapes and rich natural resources.
Peach blossoms are blooming when winter snow still stays, making a fascinating picture rarely seen anywhere else.
Every yearvarious traditional festivals are held in Nyingchi, such as the Nyingchi Matsutake Festival, attracting tourists to flee from the busy city life and embracing the idyllic natural and pristine cultural atmosphere.
Key words of summer: bustling carnival
Summer is boisterous and vibrant in Nyingchi. Being Tibet’s peak season, it lasts from May 1st to the end of October. The summer season is regarded as the most popular time for sightseeing among the four seasons.
Unlike the suffocating and hot summer in the area to south of the Yangtze River，the sky in Tibet is clear and blue, and the air is pleasantly cool and refreshing. And oxygen layer in summer is two times thicker than that in winter, offering tourists a comparatively favorable environment for travel.
The night in summer is very cool and refreshing; hence many tourists choose to spend the night in Tibet, either at the bank of the holy Namsto Lake or in a park, to experience the dawn, dusk and the starry night.
In other areass such as the Nagchu Prefecture in northern Tibet and the Dangxiong County of the Lhasa City, activities such as horse racing, yak racing, horse riding and horseback performances present visual feasts for tourists.
Key word of autumn: sunshine
Autumn is the season of sunshine. When the rainy season is over, plenty of sunshine lingers, leaving the high mountains such as the Namjagbarwa Peak visible even at a distance.
Key words of winter：High quality travel service with low price
In winter, it rarely snows in Lhasa. The bright sun in the cerulean sky heats every creature breathing in the salubrious air. It shines on the golden roofs of the Potala Palace, the Jokhang Monastery, the Sera Monastery and the Drepung Monastery, and reflected on the Kyichu River. In the distance , the Yumbulagang stands alone in the Yarlung River Valley, the cradle of the Tibetan civilization.
Moreover, winter is also the origin of many festivals, and the most famous one is the Tibetan New Year. It is a hilarious event and is celebrated by days of dancing and singing. and it is also a fancy ethnic costume show for tourists.
