Travel to Tibet for a dream

Features Nourished by Black River, the upper reaches of Nujiang River, Changtang Grassland is a paradise for the wild animals and plants. On the vast grassland, yaks and sheep can be seen everywhere. The grass “Naza” growing on the grassland is a kind of short grass that has the highest content of protein among all grasses.

That’s why the flocks and herds grazing on the grassland are fatter and stronger than in other places. Changtang Grassland is culturally rich. The famous ancient Tang -Tupo Route ran through Changtang Grassland from south to north. The nomadic people here have created their own colorful, fascinating and long-standing nomadic culture characterized by ancient rock paintings, the Ruins of Yamtung (or Zhangzhung) Kingdom, long epic about King Gesar, Nyima Mound, prayer flags and ancient towers, etc, adding mysterious color to Changtang Grassland and making it irresistibly attractive.

Nomadic people’s camps can be seen everywhere on Changtang Grassland. Besides the traditional yak camps, there are nylon camps of different shapes and sizes striped with different colors such as red, blue, yellow, green and white. On the top of many camps, multi-colored flags are waving to and fro in the breeze. The most attractive is the festival attire worn by herders, especially girls and middle-aged women.

At festivals, most of the girls and middle-aged women wear gorgeous and expensive Tibetan gowns and hang a lot of tinkling trinkets with them, which is really a beautiful scene.
