Helicopter tourismTourists who are going to Tibet can take now helicopter rides for having a bird’s-eye view of the provincial capital Lhasa.

 

The city’s government has confirmed approving trial operations of the helicopter operated by a Lhasa-based company. Passengers can book tours at the Tsechokling Airport or on WeChat, as said by the deputy general manager Tseten Paldron.

 

The company has two routes: one over Lhasa and another chartered flight to Nam Co, the world’s highest saltwater lake, about one hour away from Lhasa.

 

Last year, Tibet received more than 23 million tourists mostly from different Chinese provinces. The Chinese government is increasing the facilities to cash-in on the booming tourism.
