Bayi (八一; also known as Bayizhen (八一镇, "Bayi Town")) is the capital city of Nyingchi Prefecture in southwestern Tibet.


Get in[edit]

Bayi can be accessed via public and private transporation from Lhasa's public bus station. Large buses will make the trip in nine hours for around ¥80, whereas private cars will do the trip in six hours for around ¥150. Both buses and cars do not run on a set schedule, but rather leave when full. Technically, a Alien Travel Permit is required to visit the region, but there are no checkpoints on Highway 319 to Bayi or in Bayi itself.

Get around[edit]

Taxis will take one around the city for a flat ¥10, to the World Cypress King Park for ¥20, and to the Yalung Zangbo Canyon for ¥300 roundtrip.

There are three main sightseeing attractions in Bayi and surrounding regions:

  • Yalung Zangbo Canyon and Mt. Nanjiabawa. The world's deepest canyon, can be accessed without a permit via a boat tour up the Yalung Zangbo River and a land tour to Mt. Nanjiabawa base, which costs ¥590.  edit
  • Linzhi Forest Sea. On a clear day the peak of Mt. Nanjiabawa can be seen from here.  edit
  • The World Cypress King Park, (13 km from Bayi). Home of a 2,600 year old cypress tree.  edit
