The Tibetan Medicine Heritage Innovation and Industry Development Forum was held recently in Xining, Qinghai. It is learnt that after five years of construction on the 30,000-square-meter complex, the second phase of the Qinghai Tibetan Culture Museum was unveiled on November 9, which means that China's largest Tibetan medicine-themed museum has expanded into a comprehensive museum that displays all aspects of Tibetan culture. The first phase of the Qinghai Tibetan Culture Museum (also known as the Qinghai Tibetan Medicine and Culture Museum) was completed in 2005.
China's comprehensive Tibetan culture museum
The second phase of the museum includes the Silk Road and Civilization on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau Hall, the Tibetan Architectural Art Hall, the Calligraphy Art Hall, the Tibetan Carpet Hall, and the Clothing Hall. In addition, the "Treasure of the Museum" --- Painting of China's Tibetan Culture, which once received the Guinness World Record, has also been moved to the second phase museum. The painting is 608 meters long and called “the encyclopedia of Tibetan culture”.
"What can be found here is not only tradition, but also science," Wu Tianyi, an academic with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering, commented.
Ai Cuoqian, director of the Qinghai Tibetan Culture Museum and president of the Qinghai Tibetan Medicine Society, said that the second phase of the museum has greatly improved the museum's facility and its cultural level. The layout of the first phase of the museum is based on Tibetan medicine culture, and the second phase features overall Tibetan culture. In future, it will play a greater role in enhancing the soft power and international influence of the Tibetan culture as well as the Chinese culture.

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.
