“Relaxing town and a good base”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

The town is more Han Chinese than Tibetan but you get all the amenities (except for international postage!). At 2,400m above sea level you don't really suffer much from altitude sickness except some shortness of breath for steep hills and stairs. I love the raging river that runs through the centre of towns and but plenty of cheap & good eats around too, yak yoghurt is also easily available. Since it's at 2,400m, pretty much all the attractions outside the town is uphill, so take note if you intend to cycle out from town (only heading back to Chengdu is downhill!).
