Tragic as the Chinese takeover may be, many Tibetans will nevertheless admit that at least it brought some decent restaurants. The traditional Tibetan diet is largely limited to barley, meat (mutton or yak) and dairy products, with very few spices or vegetables. By comparison, Chinese restaurants in villages often put out some excellent food. Some travelers feel that Hui (ethnic Chinese Muslim) places are cleaner because of halal food laws; they can be recognized by the green flags and crescent moons. While on Wind Horse Tours, most of our tours provide breakfast at the hotel and if any other meals are included are combinations of local restaurants, picnic lunches, and some dinners in your overnight hotel. While trekking, our crews prepare all meals for you.
