We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

1.U-Tsang: Or Tang-U, one of the three traditional provinces of Tibet, it covers the central and western parts of Tibet. Today's Tibet Autonomous Region occupies what was ancient U-Tsang and western Kham. U-Tsang is the cultural center of the Tibetan people. Successive Dalai Lamas ruled Tibet from the Potala and Norbulingka palaces in Lhasa.U, where the Dalai Lama has his seat at Lhasa, was designated "Front Tibet"while Tsang was designated on maps of the Qing dynasty as "Back Tibet" whose largest cities are Gyantse and Shigatse, where the Panchen Lama has his traditional seat at Tashilhunpo Monastery.

2.Amdo: Amdo is a traditional provinces in the Tibet, which now has been merhed into today's three provinces - Gansu, Sichuan and Qinghai.The traditional Amdo is home to over 1.5 million Tibetans. Western Amdo is populated by mostly nomadic people herding yaks and sheep while many are farmers making use of the fertile soil in the area. Amdo is also home to many important Tibetan Buddhist monks (or Lamas), scholars like the H.H14th Dalai Lama, the 10th Panchen Lama, and the great reformer Je Tsongkhapa.

3.Kham: Kham is a historical province of Tibet occupying the large area shared by present-day Tibet Autonomous Region and Sichuan province, with smaller parts within Qinghai, Gansu and Yunnan provinces.Kham is well known for its sweeping grasslands, craggy mountains and pure rivers. The most famous horse race takes place in Kham area.

Tibetan Buddhism

Religion is extremely important to the Tibetans and has a strong influence over all aspects of their lives. Tibetan Buddhism is mainly composed Mahayana and Vajrayana, and has four main sects:

1.Gelug(pa):Also known as Yellow Hat.The spiritual head is the Ganden Tripa and today's temporal head is the Dalai Lama. This order was established in the 14th to 15th centuries by Je Tsongkhapa,based on the foundations of the Kadampa tradition. Tsongkhapa was well-known for both his scholasticism and his virtue. As Gelugpa school,the Dalai Lama is considered as the embodiment of the Bodhisattva of Compassion.
2.Kagyu(pa): This sect is composed of one major subsect and one minor subsect. This is an oral tradition which is very much related to the experiential dimension of meditation.Its most famous master was Milarepa, an 11th-century mystic.
3.Nyingma(pa): This is the oldest, the original order founded by Padmasambhava.
4.Sakya(pa): Grey Earth, headed by the Sakya Trizin, established by Khon Konchog Gyalpo, a disciple of the great translator Drokmi Lotsawa. Sakya Pandita 1182–1251 CE was the great grandson of Khon Konchog Gyalpo. This school pays great attention to scholarship.

Tibet is a land of Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, also known as Guanyin in Chinese. The Tibetan people are believed to the descendants of of Avalokiteshvara.

Tibetan Medicine

The Tibetan medical system is one of the world's oldest known medical traditions based on Buddhist philosophy and psychology. It explains that everything existing or non-existing in the world derives from the mind and the five elements. The mind is considered to be the base because all existences and moments depend on its movements; it is the creator of every external and internal phenomena.

The Tibetan medical heritage is based on the fundamental medical treatise, which is comprised of four sections, usually known as the Four Tantras:

The Root Tantra
The Explanatory Tantra
The Oral Instruction Tantra and
The Last/Subsequent Tantra.

When treating illness, Tibetan doctors prescribe natural medicines,phisicaltherapies,behavior and dietary modifications.Come with us to visit traditional Tibetan hospitals, meidical factories, and medical colleges,talking with meidcal scholars,meeting with medical doctors.
