Home to the majestic Himalayas, vast highland grasslands, and unique Tibetan Buddhist culture, Ngari attracts explorers and culture enthusiasts from around the world.

A Glimpse into Ngari’s Past

Between the 4th and 5th centuries, the ancient Zhangzhung Kingdom encompassed the area now known as Ngari. Kyide Nyima Gon established the Kingdom of Ngari around the year 950. By around 1050, the establishment of the Guge Kingdom took place in what is now Ngari. During the Sakya Dynasty, the Sakya lama incorporated the Guge Kingdom, along with the rest of Tibet, under his administration. In the Tsangpa Dynasty, officials established the military and civilian marshal’s office.

The Tibetan Kashag government designated the Ngari Region as an administrative region, appointing the “Ngari Garpon” as its highest authority. Following the unrest in Tibet in 1959, the authority structure of Ngari, the Duli Garpon, remained in place.
