Amdo and Kham are the Tibetan cultural regions in the east of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Amdo is in the northeast of the Tibetan Plateau, while the Kham region is mainly in the east of the plateau. This trip takes us to the Tibetan Amdo Cultural Region in Gansu Province and Qinghai Province, to visit the Labrang Monastery and Kumbum Monastery (Ta'er Si) and to learn about the Rebgong Art in Tongren.
From Xining, the capital of Qinghai Province, we take a nearly one day train ride to the holy city Lhasa on the roof of the world. Let us enjoy majestic and varied scenery while traveling on the Tibet Railway!
In Lhasa - the capital city of Tibet - you have two days for the attractions: Potala, Jokhang, Norblinka and Sera. And from Parla Lupu Monastery we'll enjoy the magnificent view of Potala Palace. We could circle around the Tibetan holiest Monastery Jokhang with pilgrims, who come from all over Tibet and the Tibetan cultural areas of Kham-Amdo of the provinces of Sichuan, Qinghai, Gansu and Yunnan. Many pious Tibetans measure the way on the Barkhor market with their body length.
