The 12th Nyingchi Peach Flower Festival kicked off on March 26 and lasts till the end of April. The first Nyingchi Peach Flower Festival was held in 2002 and is now a famous local festival. Every year, the Nyingchi Peach Flower Festival attracts many tourists and photographers.
Surrounded by Himalaya mountain range, Nyingchi has an average altitude of 3,100 meters and relatively warmer climate, which allows it to embrace spring earlier than the rest of Tibet. In April, it is still cold at other places of Tibet and the mountains afar are still covered with snow, but peach flowers are already in full blossom in Nyingchi. The Peach Valley is bordered by mountains on three sides. Rivers stream down from the mountaintop, sided by numerous peach trees.
