Photos of Eastern Tibet (Kham and Amdo)
The Amdo and Kham regions of Eastern Tibet, though ignored by most foreign travelers, are beautiful and in many ways better preserved culturally than the more famous and touristic Central Tibetan regions near Lhasa. You can get a taste of these stunning areas in these photo galleries by our photographer friends.
Visitors to the non-Tibetan Autonomous Regions of Kham and Amdo do not require the special Tibet travel permit and do not have to be on any kind of official tour. (We do strongly advise you to hire a guide and driver, though, to navigate the complexities of travel in the large region). If you wish to visit Eastern Tibet, we can put you in touch with a reliable Tibetan-owned agent who will plan a non-touristy trip that gives you a real feel for Tibet. You can request that we connect you, here.
