Entering Kham Tibet from Chengdu, Sichuan – Local China Guide
The journey starts from the Sichuan basin and proceeds to the breath-taking heights of the Tibetan plateau. With extreme natural environment and thin air, everything changes. For example, round and flat Chinese faces of starters are replaced by the long and sharp-featured ones typical of Tibetans. Besides, replacing modernity, temples and traditional homes dot the landscape and are often home to welcoming and friendly hosts. Along the journey, the landscape has surprising variance: tight narrow valleys with lush vegetation and steep ascents marked by countless switchbacks carry you to the vastness of the Tibetan plateau.
The Chinese cities of Chengdu, Xining, and Kunming are the main gateway cities to Kham Tibet. You can choose to enjoy the modern city views in one of those three cities, and then head towards the wonderland of Kham. In fact, there’re many access for travelers to get into Kham. Public buses are more comfortable than most people think these days, and if you are traveling in a group it very economical to hire a private vehicle. Besides, your guesthouse or hotel should be able to assist with arranging your ground transport depending on your needs. Airports are also conveniently located in Kangding, Shangri-La, Daocheng, Yushu, and Chamdo.
