Overview

These areas though densely populated by Tibetans, is not a part of TAR but falls in the Qinghai, Gani and the Sichuan provinces. Ironically it has more Tibetans and retains a far more authentic culture than anywhere in the TAR. We get to see many pastoral, nomadic Tibetan villages or camps, monasteries unscathed by external influences, and will have the privilege of attending two grand local festivals. During the summer, the grasslands and meadows are carpeted with multihued wild flowers. One of our guest rightfully said “every day and even by hour, the scenery is different and amazing.  At Basanta Adventure, we are passionate about off the beaten track travel and about giving our guest the thrill of close encounters with unaffected cultures as well as regions of wilderness and of unblemished natural beauty. These trips are what we ardently call, the trip of a lifetime” and this is one such trip. Join us on this truly amazing journey.
