If you are looking to get out of the city and sleep in the peace and quiet of the Tibetan countryside – this is the tour for you.  Venture to Qinghai’s largest monastery, Rebkong Longwu monastery, and then sleep for 2 nights in an authentic Tibetan homestay as we enjoy the slower pace of life in the high mountains outside of Rebkong town.  This tour includes a terrific half day hike and a dip in the local hot springs.

The cycling trip around the Qinghai lake was simply amazing. Even though we decided to do the trip on very short notice, the whole trip was organized perfectly and was even adopted to our wishes. Choegon was a wonderful guide, taught us a lot about the Tibetan culture and was
