Qinghai-Yushu 19-27 Aug 2023 (9-Day)
Qinghai-Yushu + Tibet-Lhasa 19-31 Aug 2023 (13-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.
