GANGLHA Ecocultural Travel - AmdoAmdo, one of the three regions of Tibet, is located on the northeast corner of the Tibetan Plateau. Though most of Amdo lies in modern-day Qinghai Province, large regions are also located in southwestern Gansu and northern Sichuan provinces. Amdo is famous for producing some of Tibet’s most famous spiritual leaders including Tsongkhapa, the 14th Dalai Lama, and the late 10th Panchen Lama. Amdo is one of the most beautiful areas of Tibet.
