Qiangtang Grassland Nagqu Tibet
The Qiangtang Grassland is an attractive nature reserve. With enchanting landscape of steppes, rivers, lakes, it's paradise of wildlife, including wild yaks, Tibetan antelopes and etc. The marked routes will cross some of these meadows respecting the natural habitat of the protected species.

Huge Grassland

Established in the early 2000s, Qiangtang Grassland is one of the largest in China. With 250 000 km² of natural areas, it covers almost one third of Tibet! The landscape mainly consists of grasslands farther than 4000 meter-long. And mountains sometimes surmounted by a glacier, lakes and hot springs.

Paradise of Wildlife

This area is almost uninhabited and thus a perfect place for wild animals. Among the thousands of species, there are some rare species. We can find the Tibetan antelope and its living place as being noted their number reaches upward of 100,000! Wild yaks, wild donkeys, Bharals and white-lipped deer are also part of the inhabitants of this meadow. It is very important to preserve the ecosystem here. The arrival of cars has greatly damaged the grasslands area. Pebbles are now aligned to indicate the layout of roads. It is essential to respect the area in order to preserve natural environment.
