This little town is stunning!
I am completely blown away at how quickly we have entered the Tibetan world. Nomads on horseback, women with huge pieces of amber and silver woven into their hair, yaks everywhere – unreal.
We are staying in a Tibetan family’s house and our window overlooks a huge Tibetan temple. This morning we awoke to the sound of throaty Tibetan chanting and crazy horn blowing.
But there is a downside – altitude! Due to an incorrect altitude listing in our guidebook, we have gone up way to quickly. At 3,700 meters (12,200 feet), Tagong is taking its toll on our energy levels. Just walking up the stairs to our room left us both breathless.
