Landscapes "out of the ordinary" as the inhabitants are, that`s Tibet.
Kyirong county in South Lato occupies the valleys of the Kyirong
Tsangpo River (Trishuli) and its tributaries as well as the adjacent
Gungtang-chu headwaters and the basin of lake Pelkhu Tso. To the south
straddling the Tibet/Nepal border lie the mighty snow peaks of the
Himalayan range: Ganesh Himal (7406 m), Langtang (7232 m) and
Shishapangma (8012 m). Further north there are trails crossing the
high watershed passes into North Lato, and the Yarlung Tsangpo or
known as Brahmaputra valley. The Kyirong gorge and valley form one of
Tibet`s most beautiful picturesque alpine regions; and it boasts sites
of historic importance, connected with King Songtsen Gampo,
Padmasambhava, Milarepa, and Sakya Pandita, among others. The county
capital is located at Dzongka,
Area: 8.869 sq km.
