Come to Qinghai, the land in the clouds, for a carnival that rivals Rio de Janerio’s. Not for the faint-hearted, we will take you on an adventure of a lifetime: attending the Tibetan June Festival, pilgrimaging among Tibetan monasteries, and exploring the spectacular scenery of the world’s highest and largest plateau.
There will be dancing: the graceful movements of the young women in their festival attires, the synchronized actions of the men in joyful dances, and the frenzied exertions of the possessed shamans as he blesses and guides the villages in their worship. They are appealing to the heavens, seeking to please the mountain gods, sometimes even with their own flesh and blood.
Be captivated by the June Festival, a unique integration of rituals, celebrations, folk opera, singing and dancing.
Be enlightened by Tibetan Buddhism, with a tour of various Tibetan monasteries that each have their own stories to tell.
Be charmed by the stunning beauty of nature, including endless grasslands surrounded by imposing green mountains and impossibly blue skies.
Be immersed in the Tibetan way of life: making nomadic friends and enjoying a picnic on the grasslands.
Prices are in USD, per person, based on double occupancy.
