What people are saying:

🔸Sangke Grassland is located in Xiahe, Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province, 18 kilometers southwest of Labrang Monastery in Xiahe County. Sangke grassland is a meadow grassland with an average elevation of over 3000 meters and a grassland area of 70 square kilometers. It is one of the main animal husbandry bases of Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. It has a small population and a large area, with only more than 4,000 herders. However, the grassland is vast and it is an extremely valuable natural tourist attraction. 🔸July-September is the peak tourist season. You can eat, live and play in the grassland. There are special Tibetan flavors such as milk tea, tsampa, Tibetan bags, and hand-caught lamb. There are also grassland tourism programs such as horses, yaks, shooting, and bonfire parties. Visitors can enjoy the mysterious and simple Tibetan customs here. 🚗We went during the National Day. There are golden grasslands on both sides of the road, so you can watch the grassland scenery along the way. The G316 national highway is about 50km in the Sangke grassland section. There are scenery along the way. There are private cars on the side of the road from time to time, and there should be good scenery. You can park and take pictures, and walk and play along the way. ⚠️tips: On the Sangke grassland section, unlike other highways in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, there are many viewing platform parking lots. When there are no temporary parking spots on the roadside, you should stop by one side in turn and pay attention to safety. You can walk and play while visiting Sangke Grassland, so don't drive too fast, so that you can stop and play when you see nice scenery. Sangke Grassland is close to Labrang Monastery and can be used as an incidental sightseeing spot for Labrang Monastery.

    Stunning views

    Within the grasslands is an ancient walled city. Make certain you climb the steps to the top of the lookout for spectacular views over the walled city and surrounding hills and grasslands.

    On 3500 m above the sea level, not a single living person in view, just horses, grassland, mountains, peace and quiet. Hard to believe such places still exist, and more, in China. Try to include a vis...

    A Little early to see it in its Full Glory

    The grasslands were a little brown and not green as it was not very warm. You did get a feel for the wide open spaces with Yak and sheep grazing. There was a definite wilderness feel

Additional Information

Introduction

Sangke Grassland is in the west of Xiahe County, south of Gansu Province. There are hills and countryside with grassland. Every summer, lush green grass and wild flowers are everywhere. When you come to the Sangke Grassland, you can rent horses and ride in the local area and experience Tibetan traditional folk customs, such as Zanba, butter tea and Guozhuang dance. In addition, every summer there are festivals, such as the Xianglang Festival, on the grassland. In the evening, herdsmen often sing together and perform the Guozhuang dance. The families you stay with often hold such activities as well. If you are lucky enough, join them to experience the joyous grassland style!
