In 2000, LI, yaxi, the founder of NAVO, was in charge of a large project “ Enter into Tibet and pursue the rainbow in the Dream”. This project was mainly about the photography of the adventure tour in Tibet.
This was the first time that NAVO began the Photography tour. The tour cost nearly one month with 14-4x4 vehicles. The group started in Chengdu and derived along the South route of Sichuan- Tibet via Kangding; Litang; Zuogong; Qamdo and then turned to the North route of Sichuan-Tibet and arrived Lhasa via Riwoqe and Sog.
And then went from Lhasa via Nyingchi, Tsedang ; Xigaze and arrived Rongbu Gompa and the Camping base of Everest. Many powerful Media such as the People’s Daily Press and Xinhua Press took part of this project and made a series of report.
