Located on 5,100 meters above sea level, the base is designed to be a unique platform of popularizing astronomical science and education by taking advantage of the Ngari Observatory's ideal conditions for observation and its capacity in scientific innovation.

It is learnt that an online platform will be built so that astronomy lovers around the world can enjoy starry skies and observe astronomical phenomena in Tibet in real-time using remote controlled telescopes without going outdoor.

The construction of the Ngari Observatory in Tibet began in 2010 and could take 10 years. It currently has eight astronomical telescopes with diameters ranging from 25 centimeters to 50 centimeters.

With the help of the observatory, Chinese scientists successfully conducted quantum teleportation experiments with science satellite Mozi for the Quantum Experiments at Space Scale, an international research project in quantum physics, Xinhua reported.  It also helps the construction of an observation station for primordial gravitational waves in the cosmos.

Dear Miss Ch***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. Please worry free as you will arrive in Tibet on 8th or 9th Oct and leave on 24th Oct there would be 17days, which would be quite enough for the group tour. And also if you confirm it early, we are no problem to set the group tour departure date on 8th or 9th Oct as you want. Since you will have enough time, you will not miss Everest neither Kailash trekking. Oct is quite good for Tibet tour as clear weather and less people. And you will have more chance to have the view of the summit of Everest. I will send you the tour details to your email, please check it there. Best regards.
