Danba is a small county in the mountain valley whose residents are Gyarong Tibetans, or farmers living in a mild climate. This area of Tibetan-speaking hamlets perched stunningly on 8,000-foot-high mountainsides that loom over the town of Danba, has long been a way station on a circuit through the country’s southwest, which is home to some of China’s most exotic travel destinations.
Lithang is the county seat of Litang Couty, in western Sichuan Province, south-west China. It is also part of the ancient and historic Tibetan province of Kham. The town has a population of about 50,000 and is a major center of Tibetan culture in Kham and at an elevation of 4000m (13,123 ft) is one of the highest in the world. Several Dalai Lamas where born here and lived in the local monastery located just outside the town on a hillside.
Litang is a bustling little place with colorful street life thanks to the nomadic shepherds and Tibetan people coming here to sell and buy their products. The older parts are situated on the hill slopes to the east, while busy construction work is extending the place into the surrounding grassy plains. The vast majority of the population is ethnically Tibetan and bi-lingual but most signage is in Mandarin. The closest thing to big city ementitides is Kangding 8-9 hours to the east over several breathtaking and dangerous passes.
Batang means sheep-baaing lakeside and it is one of the most beautiful places in the world.The scenery here is simply beyond praise. Dreams Travel`s clients often are greatly astonished: Why are people here so beautiful. Overnight at Hotel

My private tour with Tour Travel Tibet was an amazing and holistic experience that gave me a deep inside view of Tinet and is culture. Everything was arranged to perfection from the date of our arrival till our departure. The local English speaking guide was very helpful and introduced us to the word of UNKNOWN Tibet. I will definitely come back.
