A Tomb in the Ruins
A research team led by the Chinese Academy of Sciences has found pieces of stone artifacts, pottery sherds and animal bones in a village in Nyingchi, Tibet autonomous region. Two damaged graves were also found in the archeology site, with some weathered human remains jutting out, which show the evidence of the earliest signs of human activity in the highest-altitude landscape.
The team started the field study in October along Lhasa River, Niyang River and Yarlung Zangbo River, digging a total of 40 pits, with 24 of them showing records of human occupation.
Previously study showed that the hunter-gatherer humans were living on the margins of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau about 15,000 years ago. The recent study with human habitation in interior of the plateau might provide strong evidence for the plateau's cultural evolution.
The research team have found some stone tools
Researchers from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have found more than 3,600 stone artifacts made from black slate at Nwya Devu, which is in the Changthang region of the Tibet autonomous region, about 300 kilometers northwest of the capital, Lhasa.
Most of the tools that were found underground were made around 30,000 to 40,000 years ago during the Stone Age. The toolmakers, whose identity remains a mystery, crafted blades and arrowlike flakes of stone, some of which are up to 20 centimeters long.

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?
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.
