As for traditional handicrafts, Tibet has it all—Tibetan knives, aprons, ethnic clothes and gold and silver jewelry each featuring exquisite workmanship and the distinctive Tibetan style, temperament and characteristics.
Another thing that must be highlighted is Cordyceps sinensis which is extremely valuable as a medicine. Tibet’s Cordyceps sinensis is one of the few specimens that are of a quality high enough to be used as medicine.
Moreover, air-dried yak meat is worth tasting. Tibet has the world’s largest yak population. Yaks live in the highland areas and its meat is delicious. Air-dried yak meat has been recognized as one of the local specialties and its price is quite affordable.
