Where is Ngari?

"Ngari is the Buddhist site of Sakyamuni, as well as the temple of Siva", said the Buddha.

"Ngari is the abode of the God, as well as the center of the world," said the believers.

"Ngari is the summit of mountains and the cradle of rivers and lakes, as well as the top of the world," said geologists.

"Ngari is the second Dunhuang of China, which is bearing the history and civilization of ancient Zhangzhung Kingdom," said archaeologists.

"Ngari is the nearest place towards the blue sky and the sun," said the tourists.

"Ngari is a plateau, which is the most far-flung and highest place on our planet," said Bi Shumin, a famous Chinese writer who has been in Ngari for 11 years, from 1969 to 1980.

Ngari is such a place for all mentioned to be "the top of the sky and the source of the earth". It has been attracting thousands of Tibetologists, photographers, artists and tourist's to set their footprints there.

Wu Yusheng, a famous Chinese photographer, led a four-member team with a new Cherokee automobile, and entered Ngari from Beijing via Xinjiang in 2002, the auspicious Year of the Horse. He stayed at an average altitude of 4,500 meters in Ngari to start a dialogue and struggle between humanity and nature for nearly four months.
