The huge Tibetan plateau stretches across Tibet (Tibet Autonomous Region) and the Chinese provinces of Qinghai and Gansu. It is a vast and wild area, peppered with salty lakes and crossed by mighty rivers. It is home to a distinctive culture and a truly spiritual place full of nomadic populations and peaceful monasteries.
The Tibetan plateau definitely has one of the most unique landscapes in the world. If you would like to get to know the Tibetan culture as part of a tour through China, the province of Gansu is particularly suitable. Compared to other areas, the Tibetan population here is very small and characterized by an extraordinary ethnic mix of Hui, Kazakhs, Mongols and Tibetans, among others. Wedged between the Gobi and the Tibetan desert, Gansu offers expansive plains full of wildflowers and magnificent monasteries such as Labrang, making it a fantastic addition to a longer trip through China.
