I did a tour with Nomad Travel, a tour company based in Xiahe, to go to the grasslands. it was absolutely amazing!! The grasslands were so wonderful, green grass, blue sky, and the mountains were dotted with sheep and yaks. We visited a nomad family in a tent, and it was so much fun. The people were really friendly and we were given yak milk tea and tsampa: roasted barley, the staple food of Tibetans. We were allowed to take as many pictures as we wanted and we played with the kids. After the visit we took a hike through the hills on the grasslands. We then had lunch in a very strange little town, where everybody stared at us. It was a great day, with a lovely guide who told so many stories about the Tibetan way of life. Wonderful day!
