Black-necked cranes in Tibet
Every winter, black-necked cranes arrive in the Tibet autonomous region, where they are welcomed by locals and tourists.
"This is the only time of the year when we can see flocks of these birds. It's spectacular!" said Toinzhub Cering, a wildlife ranger in Lhundrup county, which is about 140 kilometers northeast of Tibet's capital Lhasa.
Black-necked cranes are often seen in Tibet's river valleys and in the region's barley and wheat fields during winter - and Toinzhub Cering knows exactly where to find them. For 10 years, the 42-year-old has patrolled the nature reserve in Lhundrup, one of the black-necked cranes' major habitats.
It is known that Tibet has many bird resources. In the warm Lhasa city and the valley area, which is surrounded by mountains, the waters are rich and diverse. In winter, it is the paradise of many birds: for example, the black-necked crane, the only crane in the world that grows and breeds on the plateau, is called the most loyal snowy inhabitants. The bar-headed geese have also been regarded as "the birds flying highest in the world", etc. In addition, due to the awe of the Tibetans' natural and spiritual aspirations, the birds that come to refuge from the cold have become more happy and worry-free.

Dear Ms. Pa***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.
There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
