Perched on the slopes of Biri shen Mountain in Bayi Town, the Nyingchi Natural Museum, inaugurated in 2006, stands as Tibet’s first natural history museum and a key tourist attraction in the Nyingchi region. Covering an area of 3500 square meters (with a built-up area of 2829 square meters), this five-story building showcases a rich collection of 14 exhibition halls. These halls offer a deep dive into the diverse cultural heritage of southeastern Tibet, featuring ethnic clothing, farming culture, hunting traditions, religious beliefs, architectural art, and ancient relics from the Nyingchi Neolithic era, cliff carvings, and more.

With over 2000 artefacts and sets, 30 million words of textual materials, and more than 20,000 photographs, the museum presents a comprehensive narrative of the region’s unique folk traditions across various ethnic groups. It holds the largest relief wall in Tibet, an 80-meter-long masterpiece covering over 500 square meters, showcasing Nyingchi’s vibrant ecological landscape and reflecting the biological origins and evolution on the Tibetan Plateau.

Visitors can explore specimens of over 500 varieties of wild flora and fauna, offering insights into Nyingchi’s forest resources and ecotourism potential. From animal specimens and plant photographs on the ground floor to the detailed presentations of plant and insect specimens and the Fujian-Tibet support exhibit on the second floor, each level of the museum enriches your understanding of the region’s natural and cultural richness.
