As the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Qomolangma attracts more and more tourists and many tourists prefer to live in Tingri County at the mountainside of the Qomolangma where they can enjoy the scenery of the great peak.

More tourists lead to a tourism peak and that is why tourism in Tingri has developed so quickly and Basong Village of the county is an example.

Villagers there have earned their living by managing family hotels with more than 300,000 yuan founded by the local government while bringing convenience to the tourists.

"We try to develop tourism industry in order to make the local people enjoy the boom," said Yang Lianmin, a senior official of Tingri county.
