Tibet’s Mount Everest National Park Opens

Mount Everest National Park is now open in Tibet. This park is part of Tibetan efforts to turn the region into an important world destination by focusing on the protection of the ecology and biodiversity and prevention from illegal resource exploitation or land use. It is Tibet’s third national park following Namtso National Park, which opened earlier this week, and the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon National Park, which opened in 2010. Mt. Everest National Park is the world’s highest-altitude national park and includes five mountain peaks with altitudes of more than 26,000 feet as well as ecological valleys and culture-themed zones, hot springs and snow-coated forests.
