China astronomical site survey team was officially established in 2003, by National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC). We are aiming for a good astronomical site in China for the future development of Chinese ground-based astronomy.
The above picture shows a potential site, which is located in Ali area of Tibet, about 1500km northwest of Lasha. The altitude of this site is about 5100m. It is recommended as the best candidate at the moment.
