East Tibet

Kham and Amdo

The historic and cultural Tibet is comprised of the three traditional provinces of Amdo to the north, Kham to the east and Ü-Tsang to the west.

Amdo is now split into the Chinese provinces of Qinghai, Gansu & Sichuan. Kham is largely incorporated into the provinces of Sichuan, Yunnan and Qinghai. Ü-Tsang, which, together with parts of western Kham, is today referred to by China as the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR).

The photographs below have all been captured outside TAR, in the two provinces of Kham and Amdo, in the eastern parts of Tibet.
