We leave Chengdu, capital of Sichuan, which will be our starting point for a true immersion in Buddhist China. From the Great Buddha of Leshan to the Emei Shan's mountains, we discover two of the most important pilgrimages of the province. But it is while going towards the West, on high plateaux of Tibetan Kham, that we reach the heart of the Buddhist culture. Here, the Qiang and Khamba villages shelter ethnic groups of Tibetan origin which still know how to preserve their culture and their faith with the same enthusiasm as their ancestors.
