What to Wear for a September Nagqu Travel

It is suggested to pack your stuffs in two bags – a bigger backpack and a smaller carryon bag. The backpack is used for your daily use while the carryon bag is for your important documents and valuables. It is necessary to keep warm and protect yourself from the harsh natural power. Remember to dress in layers (both thin and thick jackets). Because of the strong sunlight and ultraviolet ray, it is also important to bring the necessary medicine and sunscreens.

Things to see and do at Nagqu in September

The Horse Racing Festival, held every August, is quite an occasion to admire the natural landscape and folkcustoms of the grassland of northern Tibet. During the one-week horse racing festival, different kinds of sports activities will be held such as tugs of war, carrying rocks, archery and yak racing. The unpopulated area in northern Tibet is mysterious for tourists. Wild yaks and antelopes inhabit this land. Rock paintings discovered in the undeveloped virgin ground add more mystery and charms to the deserted landscape.

Useful Travel Tips for your Nagqu Travel in September

Tibetans are not into having their photos taken, so if you are taking photos of the locals, you should always ask permission first. Your guide can help with that. The Tibetan tents are the people’s homes for the duration of the festival, and while it may be intriguing to know what they are like inside, it is rude to just take a look. Talking to a Tibetan can often get you invited in for some tea, a traditional gesture in Tibet, and you are welcome to accept and enjoy the interaction. It is a great way to learn more about the Tibetan culture of the grasslands.
