Eastern Tibet

Here are the regions of Kongpo and Kham; geographically, politically and historically separate from central Tibet. Isolated valleys and tribal villages are host to some very important gompas and other sacred sites and offer an unforgettable and unique glimpse of a rapidly changing world - a region that is neglected by guide books and so less visited by western travellers.

Make a loop from Lhasa; fly in or out of Nyingchi airport (daily to/from Chengdu,Xi'an, Chongqing, Guangzhou) or make a longer journey overland from Chengdu or Shangri-La (Zhongdian) in Yunnan to Lhasa.
