Booking Send an enquiry to the tour organiser

Yak, the first creature being domesticated by the Tibetan people, plays an very important role in the high plateau and it has lived on Tibet since the ancient time. It is mild, kind, patient and tough. Yak is very useful and helpful. The dried dung of yak is an important fuel, used all over Tibet, and is often the only fuel available on the high treeless Tibetan plateau. Yak meat and milk are the food of Tibetans; yak leather is used for making coats and tents. Besides, yaks transport goods across mountain passes for local farmers and traders as well as for climbing and trekking expeditions. The nomadic people on the high plateau can not live without yaks in all facets. This animal is so important in the plateau and do not think that yak has no relation with you. When you travel in tibet, you will not only meet lots of yaks but also if you want to trek in Tibet during your Tibet tours, no matter your lhasa tour or your Everest Base Camp Tour, you’ll very likely use yaks to carry the packages for you. If you want to experience the importance of yaks in Tibet by yourself, you may arrange some tours to tibet to see for real.
