About
Welcome to experience nomadic Tibet in summer, when the grassland is carpeted with wild flowers, unleashing pleasant scent. Be prepared to be mesmerized by the natural beauty of the plateau. We will set up tent camps on the private pastures running along the shore of Qinghai Lake, and you will be able to walk to the lake side. Seeing the blue lake water seemingly touching the sky in the far distance, you will be simply amazed. From your tent you can watch the sunrise and sunset, or stargaze under a chandelier of stars. Our local Tibetan friends will walk with you to the summer pasture in the higher mountains. You can fill your canteen with butter tea from the freshest, most flavorful milk you will ever taste, or with salty black tea. We will prepare feasts with parched barley and succulent mutton in a yak-hair nomad tent. You will take on a hike to a mountain, 4,200-meter-high, to see a panoramic view of the blue lake and the majestic surrounding mountains.

夏休みに、エコツアーに参加しました。三日間、テント生活をし、青海のチベット族の皆さんの生活を体験することができました。都市で暮らしている自分の生活とはかなり異なる経験でしたが、自分の今までの価値観を揺るがすくらいの、とても素晴らしい経験でした。このツアーを、友達や家族に紹介したいです。Yanbi ありがとう!
During the summer holidays, I joined the Qinghai Eco Tour. I spent 3 nights in the tent and I experienced the Qinghai Tibetanos life. Their life style was totally different from mine, and that experience was really great one which I have ever had. I really would like to recommend this tour to my friends and families. Thanks to Yambi!
