Mark Wiens and Travel China Tibet spent 9 days traveling around Tibet to taste some of the local Tibetan cuisine.

Trying the local cuisine is an important part of any travel experience.  There’s no better way to learn about Tibetan culture than by tasting authentic Tibetan dishes and learning about the history and significance of their food.

To bring our travelers a new perspective on Tibet travel and food, TCT has teamed up with Mark Wiens, a world traveler who makes amazing food and travel videos on YouTube.   Mark has a talent for seeking out the interesting and unique foods of different cultures.  This special Tibet food tour has been captured on photo and video.  Mark will be releasing a series of Tibet food videos on his YouTube channel: Migrationology with Mark Wiens.  

Please check out Mark's Tibet videos!  Here are the links to Mark’s Video on his YouTube Channel:

Significance of the Project

Tibet has a colorful and charming culture and history.  As the region continues to develop changes in the way of life of the local Tibetans are inevitable.  Our goal was to capture and document some of the traditions in Tibetan food culture that have remained unchanged for centuries.  In the process we ate many tastey dishes and met some wonderful people.

How to Find Out More

In addition to Mark’s YouTube videos, TCT has also posted some pictures of the food and behind the scenes footage on our Facebook and Instagram pages: @travelchinatibet.
