June 15,2020 -- As temperature rises, Lhasa Wetland begins to show its scenic beauty.
Lhalu Wetland at the northwest of Lhasa City, capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region, is known as "the lung of Lhasa". As a national natural reserve with a total area of 12.2 km2, 95% of it is covered by swamp meadow vegetation. Its warm climate and lush aquatic plants attract about 5,000 wild birds of 20 species inhabiting here throughout the year, including black-necked cranes, bar-headed geese, larks, skylarks, etc.
From April to mid-October of this year, citizens could visit Lhalu Wetland and enjoy beautiful scenery from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every Tuesday to Sunday, free of charge. At present, there are three entrances, the south entrance is at the intersection of North Deji Road and West Dangre Road, the east one is at the middle of Qumi Road nearby the Potala Palace staff's living base, and the north one is nearby Majia Qutong Road.
"Lhalu Wetland is so beautiful that I come here for a walk every few days. Beautiful scenery, fresh air and wild birds' chirping are really relaxing. Sometimes, I enjoy the scene here while doing exercise with my friends," says Pecho, a citizen living nearby.
At this nice place, wooden walkways extend forward, sunlight shines through tree branches. Aquatic plants grow well, swaying along with flowing water as the breeze blows; fledglings are foraging with mother birds...
