Favorite Flower Tour - Lhasa, Tibet

Favorite Flower Tour

Thanks Tibet Highland Tours for this favorite place.

Tibet is just like a gaint plant Kingdom, with more than 5000 species of high-grade plants. Most of the plants in Tibet are to be found in South East Tibet, in Medog, Chayu, Luooyu and Menyu. Tibet is also one of Chinas largest forest area, preserving intact primeval forest.

Many plants in Tibet have medical value. There are more than 1000 wild pants used for medicine, 400 of which are medical herbs most often used. Particulartly well known medicine plants include Chinese caterpillar fungus, Fritlillaria, thunbergii, Rhizoma picrorhizae, Rhizoma Gastrodiae, pseudo-ginseng, Codonopsis Pilosula, Radix Gentiane Macrophyllae, Radix Salviae Miltiorrhizae, glossy ganoderma, and Caulis Spatholobi.

In addition, there are over 200 known species of fungi, including famous edible fungi songrong, hedgehog hydnum, zhangzi fungus, mush rooms, black fungi, tremellas and yellow fungi. Fungi for medical use include tuckahoes, songganlan, stone-like omphalias.

The best place to study the various plants of Tibet is Nyingchi, East Tibet. There is a famous forest known as Lunang forest which is located at 3,700 meters above sea level, alongside the Sichuan Tibet Highway. The Lunang Forest is made up of bushes, dragon spruces, maple trees and pines. Due to Nyinchis lower altitude, most tourist travelling to Tibet also prefer to fly first to Nyingchi and then travel to Lhasa.
