Within the political boundaries of Peoples Republic of China is a historically Tibetan dominated world.

The regions of Amdo and Kham, once two of the three Tibetan states (Utsang, the third is now what we call Tibet)

are home to traditional Tibetan people, Amdo being the birth place of His Holiness, the fourteen Dalai Lama.

I was fortunate to visit in 2005, for by 2007, the second time I went there, plastic and money had replaced the yak and sheep hair bags and self sufficient economy.
