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.

Hello.

I would be interrested to join a Lhasa to Kathmandu tour in November (26th novembre). Do you have other tourists on this tour and what would be the price of it for one or two person?

Thank you.

Si***

Answered by Helen

Dear Mr. Si***,

Thanks very much for your inquiry. We currently have one departure date on 26th November for Lhasa to Kathmandu group tour, but there is no person joining in at present. If you are two persons together, we are able to open this tour for you. If you are only one person, here we suggest that you can join our 8 days Tibet Mt. Everest group tour, the major scenic spots of this tour are almost the same as the Lhasa to Kathmandu tour, the difference is that you need to get back to Lhasa and fly from Lhasa to Kathmandu. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Best regards.
