Pristine Wilderness in Northwest China Opens to Tourists

Ming Pao Daily, Posted: Feb 01, 2009

HONG KONG Hoh Xil, a pristine wilderness located in northwestern area of the Tibetan plateau in China, recently opened to tourists. The area is home to more than 230 species of wild animals including the endangered Tibetan antelope. The Ming Pao Daily reports that in order to protect the environment, each group of tourists will be limited to a maximum of 15 people. Visitors are required to carry out any trash they produce when they leave. Because the average altitude of the area is over 4,000 meters, tourists will be restricted to healthy people under 50 years old, who also have health insurance.
