The rich natural resources and multi-ethnic cultural characteristics of the third pole region have created a good foundation for its development of ecotourism. However, the sustainable development of the third Pole ecotourism still needs to be explored on the basis of environmental carrying capacity assessment. Starting from the perspective of tourism environmental carrying capacity, this paper takes the third pillar as the research area, adopts the methods of desktop research, survey and interview, literature search, etc. Based on the construction of environmental carrying capacity model, carries out data analysis from four aspects: ecology, resource space, residents' psychology and social economy. The results showed that the other three carrying capacity levels were higher except for the social and economic carrying capacity. Therefore, it can be concluded that the third pole region is suitable for the development of ecotourism, but due to the low socio-economic carrying capacity, the development of ecotourism should be guided and regulated to some extent, and it is necessary to formulate a strategy suitable for the sustainable development of ecotourism in the third pole.
