Hotel Name and Address in Chinese:
Shi Quan He hotel (or Shanxi Binguan) as the only two-star hotel there, provides western-style rooms which are equipped with small bathrooms and 24-hour hot water. Rooms, especially the triples, can not be booked easily.
Shiquanhe Town is where the administrative authority of the Ngari Prefecture is located and is the political, economic, cultural and communication center of Ngari. The town is situated on a wild gobi desert. Because it is beside Shiquanhe river, which is in the upper reaches of India River, it is called as Shiquanhe town. Though Shiquanhe is the largest in the west of Tibet, the hotel conditions are still not good. The flight between Lhasa and Ali will make Shiquanhe to be the second Lhasa.
All shops and restaurants in the town face the streets, and public telephone facilities are available everywhere. On the roofs and walls of many Tibetan-style dwelling houses are heaps of dry roots of rose willow used as kindling. On the open gobi, the town is small and bustling with activity and vitality.
