The grasslands of Amdo - Xining, Tibet

The grasslands of Amdo

Thanks for this favorite place.

A week trip with soft trek from Rebkong to Wendo in Amdo.

On the first day we visit Lho dorjee Dark caves, which is one of the historic sights of Amdo. In the afternoon we visit and see Tibetan paintings at the home of a local artist.  We start the camping trip with a visit to the biggest Rongwo monastery and local Tibetan Markets. We  walk along Ganza nomadic area and visit some nomad families and the Wecha grasslands.
We also trek through some less nomadic regions after crossing Konggan thang Pass (3400mt). A highlight of the trip is a visit to Longyangthang Monastery –  one of the most isolated monasteries –  where Lhaku Lama, one of the teachers of 14th Dalai Lama and 10th Panchen Lama was born.

During the trek we  visit many local villages and holy lakes.
