Tibet has a fascinating landscape, but visitors cannot easily reach there because of long distance between scenic spots and other spots, as well as high mountains. Therefore, visitors needed to drive for a long time.

But now, they can fly on helicopters to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

As the only helicopter business operator in Tibet, Lhasa Xueying General Aviation Co Ltd has three routes including over Lhasa, a chartered flight from Lhasa to Nam Co Lake, and another chartered flight from Lhasa to Yamdroktso Lake.

By taking helicopter, visitors can save three or four hours from Lhasa to Nam Co Lake.
