Nice grassland

The grassland still maintain its original charm, although the surrounding has gradually become modernized.

Tagong is amazing, I wish I had spent another day or two there. I could have taken a longer hike and stayed in a monastery for the night. But the two days I did spend were spent alone walking around a very small village and the surrounding hills and grasslands. Max at the Khampa Cafe provides the best information on... More

We arrived in Tagong from Kangding with a public bus which leaves Kangding at 6am (I think is the only one of the day). It costs around 30RMB and takes little less than 3 hours. We arrived at Tagong at 9 and stayed at Khampa Café (which I really recommend). We spent the entire day in Tagong, visiting the monastery... More

Tagong is not far from Kangding and definitely worth the experience. We stayed at Jyo Drolma's in the back left corner of the square and it was nice. We hiked and rode horses around tagong and both were fun experiences. Returning from the nunnery the horses like to run, so be aware if you have doubts about your equestrian skills.... More

I went from Kangding to Tagong and back to Kangding. I stayed two nights and wish I could have stayed longer. Although there are not many things to do or see in town besides a monastry at the town square and a nunnery and bigger monastry 10 min ride away by car, this town has stolen my heart. It exactly...

Went for a 2d/1n nomad homestay ride arranged by Angela at Khampa Café. Staying with Phuntsok and his family has been a highlight in our trip, not so much for the scenery (green hills at 4000+m altitude), but for the cultural immersion. Note that this is an entirely authentic experience, where you'll be kept warm by a fire of dried... More

You can visit the grassland just by walking from Tagong village. It is just what you would expect from the Western Sichuan mountain regions. Vast fields with yak scattered between the greens and browns of the flowing hills. And all that with Mt. Yala towering 5,500 meters over the beautiful scenery. The skies are deep blue. It is basically impossible... More

It's totally different than spring summer scenery when you visit here while winter season, cold and windy. Everything is really perfect, no much tourist here during this season.

Tagong Grasslands refers to the area surrounding Tagong Monastery around which Tagong town has sprung up. The Tibetan name is "Lhagang" and at the time of writing this it is most easily accessed by private cars (which you can connect with at the bus station out side of Kangding). There is no public bus. The town itself is unimpressive, but... More
