Nyingchi Prefecture enjoys a even more cool climate in summer compared to the other prefectures on Tibet Plateau. As a professional Tibet tour operator, Tibet Tour would like to provide some useful tips for tourists planning to travel to Nyingchi in June.

The bloom phase of the cole flowers at Baksumtso Lake is between June and July. The flowers form different pictures in different periods. According to the experienced photographers, morning and late afternoon are the best time for shooting the cole flowers. It is said that the cole flowers looked even more breathtaking under the soft sunshine.

Baksumtso Lake is located in the east of Gongbu Gyiangda County, about 40 kilometers away from the Sichuan-Tibet Highway (which is also noted as State Highway G318). For tourists willing to stay overnight by the lake, the guesthouses nearby are good choices. There is also a holiday resort providing different levels of rooms. Besides, it is also not a bad choice to settle a tent by Baksumtso Lake.
