Flowers in full blossom in Lhasa

As spring arrives in Lhasa, capital city of southwest China's Tibet, the warmer weather brought more tourists than last year. The free admission at all level-A scenic spots across Tibet have effectively stimulated the tourism in off-season.


In the past few years, Lhasa has increased its afforestation efforts to create a more beautiful city. In addition to leafy trees such as willow, flowering trees including peach, speciosa, cherry blossom and ash are also planted. Their flowers bloom from March through the middle of summer.
