Authentic Qinghai Exploration
Spending one or two days savoring at the alluring plateau scenery of Qinghai Lake is the No. 1 thing to do during any Qinghai trip. But it only presents you the natural charm of the vast Qinghai. As the core land of Amdo Tibetan Region, Qinghai may be current best place to explore the best-preserved tradition of Tibetan culture. Tongren, only about 2 hours’ drive from Xining city, has something of really “Tibetan-and Artistic” for you. Before the establishment of the Republic of China, Tongren region had been ruled by Longwu Monastery and other Tibetan monasteries for centuries. Thus, its authentic Tibetan culture and art is preserved very well. Here, the Tibetan monasteries are big, magnificent but without crowds of tourist groups, sky is pure and blue, almost every family is good at Regong Art (painting, sculpture…). It is said most of the successful Tibetan painters are from Tongren, which is the reason why Tongren is praised as the "hometown of Tibetan painters."
