Sangke Prairie

Sangke Prairie lies about ten kilometers west of Xiahe County, Gansu province. It bordered by the Daxia River and is famous for its excellent pasture and frequent magnificent Buddhist ceremonies. Sangke prairie is at an elevation of 3000 meters (9843 feet) with an area of 70 square kilometers (27 square miles).

Lush green grass and colorful flowers form a natural carpet covering this expansive area. The Daxia River flows through grass and earth quietly reflecting sky and mountains. Groups of sheep and yaks plus white tents form a beautiful picture.

Visitors can travel by bicycle or on horseback. It is possible to stay overnight with a local family or to rent a tent and taste Tibetan food such as yak-butter tea and mutton.
