What people are saying:

The story of King Gesar in later life, no matter which story begins the first one must be the story of his race horse king. Gannan's grassland was the place where King Gesar was born, this is Sanke grassland. The hero, King Gesar, was king of the smoke festival and race horse race. Sanke grassland is located in Xiahe County, Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province, 18 kilometers away from Labu Temple, which belongs to meadow grassland, above 3 kilometers above sea level. The high-altitude grassland is seen from the sky, surrounded by mountains, the great summer river flows slowly from south to north, but only a few horses and a flock of sheep are grazing at leisure.

    Stunning views

    Beyond the horizon

    On 3500 m above the sea level, not a single living person in view, just horses, grassland, mountains, peace and quiet. Hard to believe such places still exist, and more, in China. Try to include a vis...

    A Little early to see it in its Full Glory

    The grasslands were a little brown and not green as it was not very warm. You did get a feel for the wide open spaces with Yak and sheep grazing. There was a definite wilderness feel

Additional Information


Sangke Grassland is in the west of Xiahe County, south of Gansu Province. There are hills and countryside with grassland. Every summer, lush green grass and wild flowers are everywhere. When you come to the Sangke Grassland, you can rent horses and ride in the local area and experience Tibetan traditional folk customs, such as Zanba, butter tea and Guozhuang dance. In addition, every summer there are festivals, such as the Xianglang Festival, on the grassland. In the evening, herdsmen often sing together and perform the Guozhuang dance. The families you stay with often hold such activities as well. If you are lucky enough, join them to experience the joyous grassland style!
