There are many varieties and colors of peach blossoms here. It is easier to watch and take pictures on both sides of the road. There are relatively fewer tourists going here every year, which makes Bomi Taohuagou relatively quiet and more suitable for viewing and shooting peach blossoms.
Along 318 National Highway: Follow the Sichuan-Tibet National Highway 318 to enter Tibet by land and arrive in Nyingchi in April. It is the best tourist season in Nyingchi. Arriving at Ranwu Lake means entering Nyingchi. You can slow down the driving rhythm along the way and wait for the peach blossom line outside the window welcome.

Its gorgeous colors make the journey more exciting. Passengers arriving in Nyingchi by plane can enjoy this view in April. Our tour guide and driver will greet you at the airport, and then drive along the airport highway, all the way fragrant.
Yarlung Zangbo River Gorge: The Yarlung Zangbo River Gorge is another good place to see peach blossoms. The peach blossoms here grow along the Yarlung Zangbo River Gorge. The villages in the valley area are surrounded by blooming peach blossoms. In the unique Tibetan villages, densely packed peach blossoms. The whole village was wearing pink dresses and dancing lightly. The Yarlung Zangbo River Grand Canyon is the best place to watch Nanga Bawa Peak. Travel to the Yarlung Zangbo River in the spring to watch the peach blossoms under the Nanga Bawa Peak. But it should be noted that at present the Yarlung Zangbo River Grand Canyon scenic spot is only open to self-guided tourists.

For anyone who likes to travel by car, taking the Sichuan-Tibet line into Tibet should be the first choice. If you are a backpacker and travel on the Sichuan-Tibet line, you will learn all the skills you should learn, and you will learn what you shouldn’t! Because this line allows you to feel the beauty and magic of “on the road” the most. On the Sichuan-Tibet line, you will see a decidedly different scene every day, which meets the aesthetic needs of travelers to the greatest extent. Many people who have crossed the Sichuan-Tibet line are a little bit neurotic. Why? Because they were indeed moved, and sometimes even they themselves did not believe it, but this is a fact. These facts constitute the reason for the “pilgrimage” of the Sichuan-Tibet line. Although they are incomplete, they are quite representative. The important thing is that everyone can use their own experience to enrich these reasons!
Introduction to Tibet travel route mileage, altitude and road conditions
From Sichuan to Linzhi, Sichuan-Tibet Highway (National Highway 318): Chengdu 147-Ya’an 217-Kangding 149-Yajiang 308-Batang 104-Mangkang 158-Zuogong 107-Bangda 94- Basu 217-Bomi 233-Linzhi, if you need car rental service, please refer to our Sichuan-Tibet line chartered car channel to give you more professional services.
From Yunnan to Linzhi-Dian-Tibet Highway: The Yunnan-Tibet Highway has a total length of 1930km. It actually starts at Jinghong, Yunnan instead of Kunming, and ends at Dopuma at the border of Qinghai-Tibet instead of Lhasa. It is G318 on the southern line of Mangkang and Sichuan-Tibet. Converge. Here is only the more practical data collected by tourists. This route is a branch of the old “Tea-Horse Road”, which is similar to the north-south line of the Silk Road. The natural wonders and diverse humanities of the three parallel rivers are the essence of this route. The best driving season is from August to October each year.
It is a highway from Kunming to Dali and a first-class highway from Dali to Lijiang. Although the road is mountainous, the road conditions are good. Lijiang to Zhongdian is an asphalt road with first-class scenery, but the Gushen road is narrow. Be careful. There are still long-distance buses from the Yunnan-Tibet line to Dekandu. From Dekan to Yanjing is still a dirt road. It runs through the Jinsha River gorge. The valley is not deep and there are no large up and down slopes. It enters Tibet along the Lancang River gorge, and there is a suspension bridge on the river. The caravan is still an important local transportation means. The Yanjing to Basu section is the most dangerous. Along the way, Mangkang, Zuogong, Basu, and other towns can accommodate accommodation, repair cars, and refuel, but the rest of the road is basically It is uninhabited. There are many landslides in the section from Mangkang to Zhuka, so be careful during the rainy season! Most of the road from Zhuka-Zuogong-Bangda-Basu-Ranwu-Bomi-Nyingchi runs through the mountains.
