India’s ambassador to China Dr. S. Jai-shan-kar says the region’s beauty has left a great
impression while deepening his understanding of the area.

Dr. S. Jaishankar said, "It is very beautiful. And I have greatly impressed by the history and culture of Tibet."

About 500 thousand Indians visit China each year. Mount Kangrinpoqe, considered the most divine mountain in Tibetan Buddhism and the sacred lake of Manasarovar are popular sites for Indian tourists and pilgrims.

The ambassador also marvelled at the improving infrastructure and service provided for Indian Pilgrims.

He says the two goals of his trip have been achieved. One is to understand the situation in Tibet, the other being able to see the facilities provided by the local government.

Dr. S. Jaishankar said, "I believe with the expanding of bilateral relations, more and more Chinese tourists will visit India. I assure you that you will be warmly welcomed."
