Want to gaze into a clear, starry night sky? Come to Tibet! Known as the "Roof of the World," southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region is acknowledged as the closest place to the universe.
The high plateau has gifted Tibet thin air, a pure sky and dry atmosphere, which are all crucial elements for taking crystal clear pictures of the stars. Hence, Tibet is a top choice for stargazers to experience exceptional views.
China's only dark-sky park is located in Tibet's Ngari Prefecture at a height of over 4,700 meters. Founded in 2014, the park aims to raise awareness about the use of artificial lights and the need to preserve the visibility of starry nights.
