"Nomads" Tibet Favorite Tip by Sharrie

Tibet General: 58 reviews and 63 photos


Favorite thing: XIZANG in Chinese, the Tibetan plateau is 1600 miles long & 800 miles across. It is part of the People's Republic of China & covers an area of 471,700 sq. miles.

Comprising of dry & arid land, it consists of huge span of inhospitable terrain but is an area rich in historical & cultural past.

Fondest memory: Observing nomad's life.

Although bless with exceeding lovely environs, nomads have to endure equally cold landscapes.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
