Achree....Jigdril is still quite cold in April, but overall it is a nice time to visit. The skies are generally clear with great views of the mountains.

Aba county currently is closed to foreign travelers. Also, over the past 5 years, it has also often been closed to foreigners. If the area is open, there is a daily bus from Jigdril to Aba. The two towns are only about 70kms apart.


How's the weather in Jigdril around April? Is the road from Aba to there available that time?


The county town of Jigdril is quite small, but offers inexpensive rooms in basic guesthouses.


I think is just beautiful!!!
I have not seen a place like this in so long. Way too pretty!

I'm living in Darlag, Golog Prefecture, Qinghai Province, TAR right now, and stumbled across your blog. Loving the news/pics from your area!

Be well,



The pictures are excellent, you must be having a good time. Is there no tension given the politics.

wow!!! your pictures are incredible! what an experience. i'm definitely glued.


Tom...no permits are needed to travel in Golog. Currently, it is closed, but it should reopen in the coming weeks. When it is open, no travel permits are required and you can use public transportation.


Should i get a permit to travel in Golog Tibet Autonomous Prefecture ?

Thanks for all this advices.
