Amdo Overland

Where Adventure Meets Local

Towering peaks, deep valleys, and a rich culture appeal to the adventurous, what else does it mean to Experience Amdo Tibet?

Farmers | Nomads | Temples | Trails

Amdo Tibet combines the best cultural elements of Tibetan farming and nomadic communities with important monastic centers and a growing number of opportunities to experience trails for hiking and biking as well as some of China’s most notable national parks.
The Adventure Access Amdo Overland Experience weaves all of these rich experiences into a single narrative where the traveler can become a part of the local story and experience exhilarating adventure combined with deep local encounters. Our experienced guides know how and where to combine these elements to give the traveler a seamless approach to one of the most incredible parts of the Tibetan Plateau.

To travel overland through Amdo is to respond to the call to experience the whole of Tibet.

 

If you want an adventure or to see pure natural beauty, you must use Adventure Access!
