Lhasa Things to Do: 188 reviews and 393 photos
most people who travel to tibet, myself included, eventually ask, "where can i see a yak?" well, if you make your way to yamdrok-tso lake (pls. see my yamdrok-tso things to do tip on this page and my yamdrok-tso travelogue on my damxoi page), you will eventually see them along the mountain passes.
don't worry about not getting a chance to have a closer look, you may actually ride one at kamba-la summit while looking down on stunning yamdrok-tso lake. there will be a few locals there with yaks who will let you ride one for a price, usually about Y10 - though just long enough for a picture.
you simply cannot go to tibet and not ride a yak, it's just one of those things.
(if you simply want to see a yak, you can order yak burger or yak steak anytime at any restaurant in lhasa :))
Address: kamba-la summit, an hour or two south of lhasa
Directions: along the way to yamdrok-tso lake, south of lhasa. any hotel/guesthouse in lhasa can help you arrange a trip.
