Qinghai-Yushu City Tibetan Cultural Xperience Tour
30 Jun - 6 Jul 2024 (7-Day)

A premium and complete Tibetan experience

For many, Yushu is synonymous with the catastrophic earthquake that struck in 2010, leaving the region in ruins. Yet this "human paradise closest to the sky" has since undergone a remarkable rebirth. Its unique geographic location and terrain place it at the highest point in Qinghai, with an average altitude of 4500 meters. The towering mountains and stunning scenery make it a place of exceptional beauty, and it is also the birthplace of the Yangtze, Yellow, and Lancang rivers, which have sustained China's civilization for over 5000 years. Yushu's rich cultural heritage and ancient history still shine brightly today, and the true meaning of "paradise" lies in the hope and faith of the nomadic people who call this land home.


Come and explore the rich culture, breathtaking landscapes, and resilient spirit, experience the magic of this awe-inspiring place for yourself. It is truly an adventure worth savouring.

Day 4
Tibetan Cultural Essence

Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture boasts a unique geographic location that has given rise to a rich ethnic arts and culture, as well as a bounty of natural resources. The region is home to a variety of valuable plants and products, all of which have been cherished and celebrated by the local people for generations. Visit a sky burial site in the early morning, then venture into the cordyceps market, followed by a visual feast at the Yushu Museum. After lunch, you will make your own wind-horse prayer flags according to the ancient traditional practice.

Day 5
A Day of Nomadic Life

Take a deep dive into the Tibetan nomadic culture that has been passed down for millennia. Despite the impact of urban civilisation and the global climate change, their unique nomadic way of life is still persevered, yet it now stands on the brink of extinction. Xperience the last vestiges of nomadic life: milking yaks, picking yak dungs, making yak ghee, where the locals live in harmony with their herds of yaks with mother nature. As we wander through the soft, verdant grass, we can let our spirits soar and savour the beauty of the present moment.
