The photo shows the beautiful scenery by the road from Lhasa to Nyingchi, China's Tibet Autonomous Region. Nyingchi, which means 'sun throne' in Tibetan, is situated in the southeast of Tibet. It is nicknamed the 'Switzerland of Tibet.' Nyingchi is famous for its big Yurlung Tsangpo Canyon, the deepest canyon in the world. The traditional customs there make it even more mysterious.
