Wildlife adventure in East Tibet - Xining, Tibet

Wildlife adventure in East Tibet

Thanks Jed Weingarten for this favorite place.

Just to the west of Martok, a lonely outpost town on the Qinghai-Tibet Highway that leaves a lot to be desired, is a very desolate, barren looking area.  However, looks can often be deceiving—the area is actually home to a great deal of wildlife.  It is a great place to look for kiang (wild ass), gazelle, fox, wolf and more. Good luck with your search!
