Tibet Highland Expedition

East Tibet & Kham Tour

Operating for a few years,this is one of the most special tours of Highland Expedition.This trip starts and ends in Chengdu. Tibetan drivers and a Tibetan guide will receive you at Chengdu airport and you will stay overnight at Tibet Hotel.Next morning you travel to Kandging where your tour starts,visiting Derge,Chamdo and Mt.Four sisters after which you will return to Chengdu.

Kham is a land apart from the rest of Tibet. Its climate,geography,flora,funa and isolation all lend it a unique,almost magical atmosphere. Traditional life seems less disturbed here than in central Tibet.The stone village and vertical prayer flags resemble those in Bhutan and the unusually shaped chortens (stupa) seem more at home in Mustang.The scenery often resembles more the Swiss Alps or Rocky Mountains than the high Tibetan plateau.

History:
The area around Chamdo was one of the first settled in Tibet, as attested to by the 5000-years-old Neolithic remains at nearby Karo. Fossilised millet hints at a 5000-years tradition of agriculture in the region.
Kham was the home of many holy men including the founders of the Drigungpa and Karmapa School. In 1070 many Buddhist fled persecution in central Tibet to Kham, where they set up influential monasteries, later returing to central Tibet to apearhead the so-called second diffusion of Buddhism in Tibet.
