I am son of a nomadic family in exile India.
I did not see yak for pitty long time. but today i got the sight of the of YAK. and it remind me my lost country, it remind me my grand father's time in free tibet. it remind me how my generation is unfortunate to see red chinese behind the tibet's yak.
what ever animals you see in Tibet won't be there in one decade cos, china in eating it away. exile tibet.

Tibetans have a long history of using yaks. Experts believe that yaks were first domesticated in Tibet at least 3000 years ago.


Thanks, I'm doing a report on Tibet. I Googled yaks and found this article. I think I might use this website more.

What are the chances that Tibet will again be FREE?
Tibetans are denied the internationally recognized right to determine the use of their own land and resources.”

The developments in the few years have raised huge concerns amongst Tibetans and Tibet support groups throughout the world. With a lot of junior mining companies engaging in mining operations in Tibet, it poses threat to the highly fragile ecosystem of Tibet, destroying vast regions of grazing land for animals, and polluting water sources.


helpful, very helpful


What about the other animals?

Hi i an from sagarmatha and ride my yak. i am a porter and i bring supplies up the mountain for the climbers. this website is very informative and makes me glad people care about our culture.


Your site is beautiful & very useful also.* I've never ever been in Tibet & questionable if i could. But my favorit animal - long time ago -is the tibetan yak. & I dont know why. First i saw in the Zoo in Budapest. A fantastic animal. Have dignity.
