    People always liken Chayu “the Jiangnan of Tibet”. Because of its wet subtropical climate of south Himalaya and lower latitude than Suzhou and Hangzhou, Chayu has very pleasant natural conditions where a large variety of plants can grow.

    Its complex physiognomy consists of high peaks, deep valleys, snow mountains and grasslands. The northwest part of Chayu is higher than the southeastern side. Chayu boasts a number of rivers like the Nu River, the Chayu River and Qingshui River etc. that mostly originates from the snow mountains.

    From the ancient time it has been a pleasant place for residence and enjoyed a reputation as the immortal land in the human world and “the Jiangnan of Tibet”.

    It boasts a variety of tourist attractions that includes forests, waterfalls, lakes, grasslands, glaciers and snow mountains. Its abundant species, complex topography, unique climate give rise to the formings of many scenic spots such as the Jigong hot spring, the Dongcong Cold spring. As a shining pearl on the snowy Tibet Plateau, Chayu is obviously a top choice for explorers and photographers.

Like other places of Tibet, most of Tibetan people in Chamdo areas believe in Tibetan Buddhism. There are numerous ancient monasteries, murals and sculptures that have been left in the name of Tibetan Buddhism. Grand sacred peaks and holy lakes are also sprinkled throughout the region. Besides, there is a Catholic church in Chamdo Region, one of the two Catholic churches in Tibet. Hot springs in the area are also renowned for their healing effects. Rare animals such as golden monkey and red deer are well protected in natural reserve areas.
