Nyingchi Tour – Photography Strategies

Best Time of Photography

The climate of most districts of Nyingchi Prefecture is mild and humid. The effect of season and climate on Nyingchi tour is not very large, except Bome, Chayu, and Medog in southeast of Nyingchi Prefecture. Since the location of Bome, Chayu and Medog is a small and special environment. For this, the travel in this district is greatly affected by weather and climate. For example, in the area of Palong Zanpo River in Bome, the period from May to September is rain season. In this period, a large amount of precipitation causes landslide, debris flow, collapse and other natural disasters which cause the Sichuan-Tibet Highway on east of Bayi Town often closed. Due to steep terrain and changeable climate, the Yarlung Zanpo Grand Canyon in Medog is only accessible from May to later half of October. In other times, the mountain passes on the must-passed road to the Grand Canyon is covered by thick snow. People and animals can not go through there. Consequently, it is suitable to visit Nyingchi and photograph there at any time in the year if you do not visit the Bome, Chayu and Medog.
