Major scenic areas of Meili Snow Mountain, Balagezong, Tiger-Leaping Gorge and others in Northwest Yunnan’s Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture resumed service on March 16, receiving 352 tourists in a safe and orderly manner that day.

 


Before the resumption, the Diqing Bureau of Culture and Tourism issued a notice, stipulating daily tourist reception should not exceed 50% of the maximum capacity. And visitors are encouraged to book their tickets online.

 

 "We are implementing strict and standard covid-19 prevention measures,” said a staff member at the Tiger Leaping Gorge. “Tourists have to wear masks and have the temperature taken before entering the scenic areas.”  



Tourist service at the Diqing sites was suspended on January 25, in a joint effort against the Covid-19 that shocked the whole nation then. As of March 17, no infected case has been found in the Tibetan prefecture.


From the reopening day to the year end, however, the Grade A sites in Diqing offer free admission to Hubei medical workers and medics who left home to aid the virus-stricken province. And they can also enjoy a 3-night free stay at hotels in Diqing.
