In recent years, the authorities of Bayi District, formerly Nyingchi County, of Tibet’s Nyingchi City have made great effort to support the development of characteristic planting and animals breeding. Fruits suitable for the plateau such as apple, strawberry, and water melon are planted and the planting areas are expanded. It is one of the most important industry in this area. These orchards not only help the locals to increase their income but also provide citizens and tourists a good place to visit
