Day 1 →

Depart Xining in the morning
Drive 1.5 hours hours through the peaceful countryside of Qinghai to Sharzong Ritod Monastery, a monastery tucked dramatically into a vertical cliff face. Spend a few hours within the monastery and discover it’s hidden treasures as you meander up steps to a rocky ridge with a great view where prayer flags silently flutter in the wind. After the tour, eat a homestyle meal at a local Tibetan restaurant. Return to Xining by mid-afternoon.
