After the implementation of the preferential policy for 'Winter Tour in Tibet', the surrounding villages of Tibet has ushered in the tourist season more than half a month earlier than previous years. From the beginning of March, there are an average of about 300 tourists visiting the area every day, and the tourism revenue is considerable.
On March 29, the 16th Peach Blossom Tourism Festival in Nyingchi, Tibet, was opened in the Gara Village. The festival has become a booster for the strong development of Tibet tourism.
The flowering period of peach blossom in Nyingchi is from March 15 to April 20, among which March 25 to April 10 is the full-flowering period.
Nine years ago, Gara Village had begun to intensify the management of peach blossom tourism, and the ticket sales of 2017 had exceeded 2 million RMB. It can be estimated that this year's income of the village will reach 3 million RMB.
The economic development brings wealth to Gara village, and the people also plan to develop a tourism fruit-picking economy. For this, Gara Village has converted 50,000 square meters of arable land into fruit tree forest and planted fruit trees such as peaches, apples, cherries and blueberries.
The Mayor of Nyingchi City said at the opening ceremony that the Nyingchi Peach Blossom Tourism Festival has become a beautiful business card for the city and even Tibet, and it is also one of the most representative tourism festival activities in the region. This year, the 16th Peach Blossom Tourism Festival has a wider scope and greater influence.
It is reported that, during the festival, to ensure the transportation of tourists, Nyingchi City coordinate civil aviation Tibet Autonomous Region Authority to increase Chengdu, Chongqing, Kunming, Guangzhou, Xi'an to Nyingchi flight, to meet the needs of tourists.
