Tibet has resumed tourism on April 5 and in this month more than 200 foreign groups came here for their tour. Tibetan Tourism Administration said that they would enhance their measures to provide all tourists the quality tour service.

As Tibet has entered the nice travel season, some scenic spots open their winter-closed door, like the "heaven lake" Nam Lake with a high altitude of 4,718 meters. And the coming Yellow Peony Festival in the beautiful Nyingchi area has drawn flocks of tourists.
