17Days Qinghai-Sichuan-Yunnan Overland Tour with Yushu Horse Racing Festival
Tour Type:Private Tour
Tour Code:285
Highlights: Let the summer fun begin… This trip pairs together the camping, dancing, horsemanship display and general merry making of the horse festivals with a fair amount of gompa stomping. It is focused around the two big horse festivals in Kham Tibet. The trail starts with a night at the renowned Kumbum gompa and 2 fast days’ drive up to and across the high wide grassland of Amdo Tibet, stopping to camp in sight of Amnye Machen, one of the most sacred sites in Amdo. Arriving the eve of the horse festival (just outside Yushu), set up camp for 3 nights. Then just enough time to take in one of the more interesting loops of the region, via the cultural centre of Dege and a couple of out-of-the-way monasteries, before heading to the Litang Horse Festivals, and finally winding up the trip in Zhongdian. These festivals are the highlight of the nomadic Tibetan year and people travel from far and wide to attend. A fantastic chance to catch a huge diversity and mix of peoples from all over Kham Tibet, providing a good opportunity - rather than travelling all over Tibet, let Tibet travel to you.
