VISIT A LOCAL TIBETAN FAMILY'S HOME
Tashi Delek! You will be welcomed with this traditional Tibetan greeting as you arrive at a local family’s home. Step inside the traditional Tibetan house, featuring thick earth-rammed walls and huge timber columns from Shangri-la’s primary forests.
Drink warm yak butter tea and enjoy local staples including tsampa, a high-energy snack made of roasted highland barley dough. Such fortifying food equips the locals for rigorous agricultural work. Sit around the cooking hearth -- the “heart” of any Tibetan family’s home, and experience firsthand the true essence of Shangri-la through this meaningful exchange with its people.
