Tibet - Eastern Tibet (Kham) (Chapter)
This is the Eastern Tibet (Kham) chapter from Lonely Planet's Tibet guidebook.
Kham is the face you never knew Tibet had: a land of raging rivers and impossibly deep gorges, of Alpine forests and rolling grasslands, of outspoken monks and rebel cowboys. Compared to the rest of this largely barren land, it's a world apart.
