Ganjia grassland (Gānjiā Cǎoyuán, 甘加草原) is a typical plateau grassland and ideal natural pasture. Located in a parallel valley to Xiahe, it offers a glimpse into the lives of the semi-nomadic Tibetans living in the Amdo region. Unlike the Sangke Grasslands that lie closer to Xiahe, the Ganjia Grasslands have yet to be turned into a commercial tourist attraction.
Many denizens of the Ganjia Grasslands still keep to their traditional lifestyle herding yaks. During the chilly winters, many of them stay in mud-brick homes and head back to tent living during the warmer months.
Ganjia grassland is so famous among tibetans is not only for it is the birth place of the founder of Labrang Monastery -- the first Jamyang Zhaypa, Ngawang Tsondru. but also for its undecipherable history and natural wonders concealed in vast expanse grassland.
