Mountaineering in Tibet
Mountain resources are the characteristic natural resources of Tibet. In order to maintain the sustainable development of mountaineering, rationally develop and utilize mountain resources and serve the economic construction, the mountaineering association has carried out the census and protection of mountain resources on the basis of the original work. More detailed mountain data. Among them, there are 5 peaks over 8,000 meters, more than 70 peaks over 7,000 meters, and thousands of peaks over 6,000 meters. At present, there are 46 peaks in the open area of Tibet.
Foreign-related mountaineering is also an important aspect of foreign affairs work in Tibet, which promotes the opening up of the mountainous area. Mountaineering has become one of the important windows for foreigners to understand Tibet. To this end, our district has successively formulated the "Regulations on the Administration of Tibet for Foreigners to Tibet", the "Measures for the Management of Mountain Climbing in China" and the "Regulations on Mountaineering in Tibet Autonomous Region" and other policies and regulations, and strengthened mountain resources and mountaineering activities according to law. The management has established a good order for the development of mountaineering business and guaranteed the normal development of mountaineering work.
