Nyingchi in autumn is colorful and gorgeous, offering you a feeling of jollification. Under the blue sky, multicolor forests stretch hundreds of miles away. And greens, browns, yellows and reds interweave with each other. When the soft breeze stirs the leaves, it seems like thousands of butterflies dancing together. Besides, flocks of sheep are ranging over the grassland leisurely. When touring Nyingchi, visitors can go with local farmers and herdsmen to experience authentic Tibetan life like mowing the grass, feeding the horses, etc.
