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!

This favorite place is closest to Xining. The following responsible travel operators can help you organise an itinerary for you:
