Gonggar aims to develop the Jiedexiu Town and Yamdrok Lake tour circle including the tourist reception center, handicrafts exhibition center and other infrastructure. As many travelers tend to outdoor activities, the local authority will also build an international base camp near the Jiedexiu Town which will be the biggest international base camp in Tibet. What’s more, the base camp will not only provide tents, but also offer about 1000 caravans for travelers to rent. Thus, it is quite convenient for travelers to travel throughout Tibet.

Above all, they will set up an ecological village in Gonggar county.

On the other hand, in order to improve the income of farmers and herdsmen, the village will build many Bed and Breakfast (B&B). So, visitors can experience the authentic Tibetan cuisine and traditional Tibetan customs.
