Experience the Roof of the World from the perspective of a Tibetan nomad with Adventure Access in a way that provides rich cultural immersion, a hands on experience of daily life, and opportunities to explore the vast plains on horseback or hiking on foot.


Sample Schedule:

Day One – Arrive in the late afternoon. Settle in. Take a walk. Join the hosts for dinner.

Day Two – Rise early to watch the nomads morning routine with the yaks. Near the end of the milking chores, learn from the nomads and try the process yourself. Depending on the day, the chores with the yaks may last until lunch. Breakfast and lunch will be taken during this process. After lunch, hike on the grasslands or go horseback riding. Relax in the late afternoon until dinner is ready. On clear nights, stargazing is a perfect evening activity.

Day Three – After breakfast and packing up, return to Tangke Township.
