Kham Tibet straddles three provinces and one autonomous region in modern day PRC: Sichuan, Qinghai, Yunnan, and the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR). Therefore, the area of Kham is very geographically diverse, containing large mountain ranges and vast grasslands. To be more specific, four major rivers and six mountain ranges combine to make the scenery of Kham breathtaking.
The people of Kham Tibet, known as the Khambas (or Khampas) live up to their reputation for bravery and horsemanship when they compete in summer “horse racing” festivals. Meanwhile, they are also famous for their tough spirit of enduring a beautiful yet sometimes harsh environment, especially in the winter months. Furthermore, even people in different areas of Kham have different dialects. So, they are also pleased to embrace the culture diversity and welcome foreign visitors.
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.
