Tibet Cuisine Menu

X91014038Tibetan food

Tibet is a high altitude, sparsely populated region, which does not lend itself readily to food production. The Tibetan yak has traditionally been the animal of choice for nomadic pastoralists, as it is able to withstand the harsh winters. Yak farmers can live almost exclusively on Yak products, including Yak fat tea.

In river valley settlements like Lhasa conditions are less harsh, and other unique dishes have flourished using locally grown ingredients.
