Nyingtri, "throne of the sun" in Tibetan, is located in southeast Tibet, where the Himalaya Mountains and Nyainqentanglha Mountains extend from west to east, like parallel huge dragons, to join the Hengduan Mountains in the east. It is adjacent to Yunan and Qamdo to the east and northeast, Naqu to the north, Lhasa to the west and Shannan to the southwest. It is a neighbor to India and Myanmar to the south with a border as long as 1,006.5 km. Nyingtri area, with a total area of 117,000 square km and a population of more than 140,000, has 7 counties under its jurisdiction: Nyingtri, Mainling, Gongbo'gyamda, Medog, Bome, Zaya and Nang. With green mountain slopes, snow-capped peaks and crystal-clear rivers, Nyingtri looks just like heaven on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau.
