Posted: May 13, 2013  By: Admin

Yak in Tibet
As most facilities installed and the rest assembling work under way, the first yak museum in Tibet, will debut on May 18, 2014, the International Museum Day, according to Lhasa Municipal Administration of Cultural Heritage.

Themed mainly as yak and yak culture, Tibet Yak Museum, one of Aid-Tibet projects of Beijing, was located in Newu New District, Lhasa, covering an area of 8,000 square meters.

Mostly found on high-altitude Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, yaks gradually adapt themselves to the environment by long-term evolution.

Closely linked to Tibetan people's life, yaks have accompanied local inhabitants for thousands of years.

The museum consists of 3 parts, natural and scientific yaks, historic and humanistic yaks as well as spiritual and artistic yaks.

Tibet Yak Museum will present details about yaks, such as the origin, domestication, Tibetan culture they create together with Tibetans, as well as yak culture embodied in the art works, said Li Liangqi, deputy director of Lhasa Municipal Administration of Cultural Heritage.
