Located by Yarlung Valley, Tsedang is the capital of Shannan Prefecture, Lhasa. It's reputed as "the cradle of Tibetan Civilization", mainly for two reasons: First, the mild weather and fertile land in Shannan gestated the great Tibet dynasty. Second, it's the birthplace of the first Tibetans who were said to be the offspring of a monkey and a demoness. So Tsedang literally means "monkey's playground".

Tsedang (Zetang) is the birthplace of earliest Tibetans and the political and economical centre of Shangnan prefecture. It sits on the south bank in the middle section of the YarlungTsangbo River with a moderate climate at an altitude of 3,600 meters.

The nearby YarlungRiver scenic area is a national scenic park with Samye Monastery, Yumbu Lhakang Palace, burial site for Tsampos and Traduk Monastery spotting the region. It is located between two mountain ranges(at the nothern side of Himalayas, to the south of Nyanchen Tanggula mountains,just by the Yalong zangbu river, with land area over 800,000 square kilomiters. The Yalong river flows from the sourh through the area and empty itself into Yalong zangbu river,hence the Yalong river formed a huge river delta at its end when it merges into another.

There are sevral No.1s-- the first farming land,the first king of Tibet,the first palace (Yhongbulakhang), the first monastery in Tibet(Samye monastery). And several kings tombs are here: the world treasure- Pearl Tangka( A type of painting ) was also and is still kept in Changdrok monastery.

The Chenpu meditation caves area (located to the north of Samye monastery) is still a dream place for Tibetan Budhism practicers. You can have a touch and visit to the holy lake Larmulatso--which was and now still the image reflection watching lake for finding clues to choose the reincarlated boy of the Past Dalhai Lhama and Panchan Lhama.
