This summer, in order to escape the hot summer of the city, it is a good choice to go to the famous mountains and rivers. The temperature in the mountains is generally low. If you visit the famous mountains and rivers, then it is better to go to Tibet, where the temperature is not high, and it is also a trip worth to go. In this July and August, realizing your own Tibetan dream is undoubtedly a great choice. What are the must-see Tibet attractions to go to Tibet? Let's take a look at it:
Shishapangma which means "the God of the Grasslands" is the only eight-thousander located wholly in Tibet. There are basically 14 mountains in the world that tower 8,000 meters or more and these 14 mountains are collectively called the “Eight-thousanders.” All these mountains are located either in the Himalayan Mountain Range or Karakoram Mountain Range in Asia. Shishapangma made it to the list and is the 14th highest mountain in the world. It is located entirely in Tibet, in the Langtang Himal, on the Himalaya’s Tibetan side.
It was first scaled by a Chinese climbing team led by Hsu Ching in 1964. Afterward, it was opened to foreign climbers in 1980, and the first foreign team ascended this mountain in 1983. This climbing team was led by Mike Browning. As of 2003, there were only 201 successful ascents to the summit of Shishapangma. Nevertheless, there were around 19 fatalities.
Located at the intersection of the Himalaya Mountains, Nyainqêntanglha Mountains, and The Hengduan Mountains, Namcha Barwa is the highest mountain in Nyingchi Prefecture. Belonging to the Himalaya Mountains, the high altitude of the Namcha Barwa is about 7782 meters. Crowned as the fifteenth highest mountain in the world, Namcha Barwa is highly recommended as “The most beautiful snow mountain in China”. The summit of the mountain is covered by heavy snows all year round, and the shape of the mountain as sharp as the lance. It is always surrounded by heavy clouds, so it is very difficult for a tourist to see the face of Namcha Barwa. Therefore, it is also known as Shy Mountain in Tibet. That’s why Namcha Barwa always keeps a mysterious image and allures thousands of travelers from all over the world. At the foot of this mysterious mountain, the natural scenery is attractive. You can enjoy the boundless peach blossom in this “The Jiangnan in Tibet”. Especially in spring, during the celebration of the “Nyingchi Blossom Festival”, here is the paradise of photographers.
