Peach blossoms in full bloom are not only gracing the spring in Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region, but also marking a strong start for tourism in the region this year.

At the ongoing 19th peach blossom festival in the city of Nyingchi, tourists are swarming to different resorts known for their picturesque views of peach flowers with snow-capped mountains in the background.

"I have long been fascinated by Nyingchi's peach blossoms, and finally got a chance this year to come to Nyingchi with my friends," said Shu Lin, a tourist from Southwest China's Sichuan province visiting a small village called Kala.

The village has been the venue for the opening ceremony of the festival for many years, as it has a vast number of peach trees, mostly wild, across its mountainous terrain. Some of its peach trees are more than 100 years old.

"This is really like a fairyland on earth. Snowy mountains, blue skies and peach blossoms complement one another with a rich spectrum of colors," said Shu.
