There is no need to limit your tour to the points of interest in Tingri because the whole region has been endowed with a treasure-trove of terrific things to see and do.
Travelers longing for spots of quiet contemplation, will enjoy spending time in the region's many monasteries.
Delve into a side of the region many visitors will never see by joining a knowledgeable local on one of the guided nature walks. If your idea of an excellent vacation is challenging your abilities in the great outdoors, then sign up for one of the hiking or horse riding excursions Tibet has to offer.
Uncover the culinary arts of Tibet by trying out local food. There are lots of popular meals here. Taste tingmo (steamed bun) or thenthuk (noodle soup).
Whether you're taking the common tourist route or heading off the beaten path, packing at least some Mandarin phrases will serve you well. "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ" means "Would you like todance with me?" And "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān", which translates as "This gentleman/lady will pay for everything"
When it is time to depart from this unique place, say farewell the way locals do, with a heartfelt "Zàijiàn."
