East Tibet Kham-Amdo Tour, Trekking in East Tibet Kham-Amdo, Travel to East Tibet Kham-Amdo

When speaking of "Tibet" we refer to the area officially called the "Tibetan Autonomous Region" (TAR), with Lhasa as the capital of this region. The area of TAR roughly corresponds to the boundaries of the ancient region of U-Tsang and the Western part of ancient Kham. Yet, when talking about the "Tibetan Cultural Area" we mean the areas traditionally inhabited by Tibetans, including the TAR and the two ancient regions of Kham and Amdo.
Traveling in this region is an experience that one cannot forget and that will stay with you for many years. We are happy to recommend our series of tailor-made tours, perfectly designed to meet your special interests: adventure tours, trekking, festival tours, flower watching, bird watching, mountain biking tours, horse riding etc....
The areas of Kham and Amdo - endowed with snow-capped mountains, sparkling glaciers, vast pastures, deep river valleys - which are now part of Sichuan, Yunnan, Qinghai and Gansu provinces have long been inhabited by Tibetans.
Kham includes parts of today's Tibet Autonomous Region, Western Sichuan, Southeast Qinghai and the Northwestern tip of Yunnan. Amdo, on the other hand, includes a vast area located to the Northeast of the traditional Ü-Tsang region which now corresponds to the Northwestern part of Qinghai, Southwest Gansu and Northwest Sichuan.
The religion of Tibet is often referred to as Lamaism. This term however fails to underline the wide variety of sects that have appeared throughout the centuries. Eastern Tibet, in particular, has witnessed the development of a large number of Buddhist sects (such as the Yellow Hats, the Red Hats etc) that have all coexisted side by side and, to a large extent, peacefully with the endemic religion of Bon. To this day, the regions of Kham and Amdo have retained a unique blend of Buddhism that visitors can witness while visiting local places of worship.
In fact, a number of important Tibetan monasteries are also located in Kham and Amdo. The most important ones being: Labrang Monastery, Kumbum Monastery (Ta'er Si), Dzochen Temple, Babang Lamasery, Tagong Monastery, Larong Monastery with its Wuming Buddhism Study Institute, Gathog Monastery, Paiyul Monastery, Litang Monastery and Garze Monastery.
Naturally, Eastern Tibet is also a land of natural wonders. The most holy mountains of Kham and Amdo are: Gongga, also known as Minya Konka, the highest mountain of the Sichuan province, the holy peaks of the Amne Machin mountain range in Qinghai province and Meili Xueshan (or Meili Snow Mountain) in Yunnan. Man-made treasures are also to be found such as the world-famous Dege Monastery and its Printing House of Buddhist Scriptures.
The two great Chinese rivers, the Yangtze and the Yellow River, both take their source on the Tibetan plateau. This remote and vast area seating on the "top of the world" would be cut off from the rest of Asia were it not for the Sichuan-Tibet Highway, the Yunnan-Tibet Highway and the Qinghai-Tibet Highway connecting the ancient Tibetan civilization to the rest of Asia.

Hereby we'd like to recommend you especially the hidden highlights in the Tibetan area in West-Sichuan: Larung Gar Monastery with the Wuming Buddhist College, Xinlong (Nyarong) with the beautiful village Larima, Cuoka Lake and Cuoka Monastery, Yaqing Nunnery (Yarchen Gar), as well as Shiqu (Sershul) with the Songge Mani Stone City and the Bage Mani Stone Wall.
