There is a section of tibet which no permit is required.
Kham, the eastern grasslands of the tibet plateau is pristine with very few tourists.4000m altitude.
Tagong, Litang and many other small towns and villages.
7 hours by bus from chendu to Kanding and westward.

If anyone or any organization makes legit money in china they will get pushed out of their market shares or be victim of some kind of extortion.

They found and ID'd Mallory on Everest, although luck did play a part to stumble on his body in the 70's.



Crumbly cheese yes but the cheese seems to be low in fat/oils.
Tastes great.
It seems the cheese is small/medium artisan maker with batches that vary.

Expiry dates on cheese is not a big issue...it can only get better...

Great local shop.


We've had John bring a few of our clients when we could not.

When the cat is away the mice play.

I've been there (at the old location) with Rocko present and it was exellent, although without the owner present it was very disapointing..


Went the other night, it was very late therefore I cant coment on the food but it did smell very good..
Cozy atmosphere and very friendly host.
Will return again now that it's found!
