Tagong is surrounded by the most phenomenal grasslands – it feels like we are in the middle of a green dune sea. The Tibetans above invited us to sit with them and drink yak milk diluted with hot water. The diluted milk was horrible, but the company and the setting were pure joy.
We hiked on past the yak herds (stepping very carefully) towards the mountains in the distance. Reaching the top of a small ridge, the grasslands before us opened up into a carpet of wildflowers. It turns out that we have arrived in the Tagong grasslands at the exact moment the wildflowers bloom!!!
