"Langmusi" is a Tibetan town known as 'Takstang Lhamo' in Tibetan,' which straddles the border of the Sichuan and Gansu Provinces in central China. It belongs to the broad grassland region of north-west Sichuan and south Gansu. There are two major cultural influences in Langmusi - one is 'Tibetan Buddhism' and the other and very important, is the 'traditional Tibetan nomadic way of life.'
What can I see in Langmusi?
Venturing face-to-face with Amdo Tibetan nomads is an electrifying once in a lifetime experience while trekking through their age-old grasslands.
Langmusi itself is infused with Tibetan culture and natural beauty, yet the real draw to the area is the traditional nomadic grasslands outside of town. Trekking across the rolling green hills you can experience this nomadic lifestyle by staying with real nomadic families. The nomads live sustainably off the land and their days are filled with activity. You can observe and even assist the Tibetan women milk yaks, make butter and dry the yak dung, which is used for fuel. You can also watch the men herd the yaks and sheep. Also, depending on the season you can see and be part of seasonal activities such as sheep shearing, moving to new grasslands areas, and mowing the grasslands amongst other things.
So if you do come to Langmusi for a few days of riding or trekking, you will experience so much more by immersing yourself in the traditional nomadic life and community, unique to this part of the world.
