Mother river of Lhasa
16:31, November 01, 2011  

Lhasa River, also "Kyichu River" in Tibetan language, is one of the five great tributaries of the Yarlung Zangbo River. It originates from the Mt. Nyainqentanglha by the side of sacred lake Namtso, passes through Lhasa, and flows to the Yarlung Zangbo River. The river with high altitude goes through several sacred lands on Qinghai-Tibet plateau, and gives birth to the great and rich Tibetan culture. It is deeply loved by the Tibetan people, who would walk or drive along the river or tent by its sides, fishing, swimming, bathing, drinking butter tea, eating various food brought from home and enjoying the brilliant sunshine and beautiful sceneries of the river. It is also welcomed by the tourist from other areas. From sunrise to sunset, there are always tourists taking pictures by its side.

The most famous shooting site is the Chushur Bridge by Lhasa Gonggar Airport. It is above 60 kms away from Lhasa. From here, the quietly Lhasa river has suddenly changed its face: it turns wide and flat, from which we can recognize the magnificent Yarlung Zangbo River. The Chushur Bridge across Lhasa River connects Lhasa city and Gonggar Airport, and serves as a bridge to spread and develop Tibetan civilization.
