Zhongdian, Yunnan ProvinceA remote town of Tibetan Buddhist people in the Himalayan foothills, Zhongdian is almost untouched by the political situation in Lhasa and Tibet proper. Visit a monastery where you will ‘go backstage’ into areas not normally accessible and experience real life with the monks. Have lunch with a family of Kham tribal people of Tibetan descent, and taste yak meat, momos (small, savoury dumplings), yak butter tea and their powerful baijiu rice liquor.
