17-day Biking in Northern Sichuan


In this journey we will go through the great grasslands of Eastern Tibet in northern Sichuan. This area was historically the ancient border from Kham into Amdo two old regions of Tibet. Averaging 3500m the plains are home to herds of yaks and horses, on which you will definitely feel the freedom and the greatness of the Nature. We will also visit Jiuzhaigou Valley and Huanglong National Park, which are one of the most beautiful sceneries in China, reputed as Fairy Land. Meanwhile the rich local Tibetan culture will not be ignored.
