What is Exactly a Third Pole Tour

The Third Pole mainly refers to the Tibetan Plateau, also called Tibetan Highlands or Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, vast high plateau of Western China. It encompasses all of the Tibet Autonomous Region and much of Qinghai province and extends into western Sichuan province, southern Uygur Autonomous Region of Xinjiang and northern part of Yunnan province. Most of the destinations are the off the beaten tracks with wild views, primitive cultures, devout people and unexploited landscapes.
