The remote land of Changthang (meaning northland in Tibetan) stretches from Tibet to the extreme northwest of the Kunlun Range. This region, known as the land of the nomads, will take you by several encampments of the Changpa nomads and give you a unique opportunity to have a glimpse into their way of living, and maybe a cup of butter tea in one of their tents made of black yak hair. The picturesque lake of Tsomoriri, which changes its sapphire blue color with the sun and the salty Tsokar are other attractions along the trek. The area is also an important wildlife sanctuary, harboring marmots, snow leopards, kiangs (wild asses), as well as various species of birds.
