  • Insolite & Curieux
  • Marché & Shopping

The abundance of fresh produce is displayed proudly in local markets in Gyalthang. A visit to the colorful market is an experience in itself that will prepare you for sampling popular Tibetan dishes and sweets. In August, it's mushroom season and an amazing variety grows in the mountains and meadows. In the aisles of the market: there are delicious shiitake and matsutake mushrooms. Tibetan cuisine is both hearty and fat during the winter months. The Yak appears on every menu, and in all its forms, steak, yak, yak cheese, yak yogurt and of course the traditional butter tea and Yak. Be invited to the house of a farmer for a little Tibetan yak butter and tea, cheese and yogurt is something unforgettable. The typical farm is a large wooden structure with a space for the animals, the family home on the second floor and attic. While sitting around the fireplace in the living room, yak cheese hung above the smoke ... Imagine the surprise to come across a huge pot with five compartments, one for boiling water for washing, one for cooking daily meals, one for food preparation cows, a chicken for food and one for the pig. You will marvel at the pot, and you will realize that Shangri-La, nature and man live in harmony.
