Nyingchi city located in the Tibetan Autonomous Region is attracting numerous visitors. The local residents are learning how to capitalize on the natural scenery at their disposal.

As a result, the tourism boom in Tibet has significantly stimulated local economic growth. Prior to the tourism boom, local villagers largely depended on farming and animal husbandry to make a living.
