Nyingchi has also been very popular among tourists in recent years. In 2014, 2.8 million people came to check out the city.

The new city will remain as it was before, with no new government officials being sent to the area. 

Some cool things to check out in Nyingchi are the Yarlung Zangbo river, several mountains and waterfalls, ancient temples, and beautiful nature reserves. 

Who knows what else there will be to see once the city starts getting established.
