Highland barley wine is one of the three symbolic goods of Tibetan culture. It is a unique kind of wine brewed by the highland barley and the unpolluted snow water or spring water. It is the favorite wine of the Tibetan people, a must in big festivals, celebrations and daily lives.

2. Ophiocordyceps sinensis

Ophiocordyceps sinensis (formerly known as Cordyceps sinensis) is an entomopathogenic fungus (a fungus that grows on insects) found in mountainous regions like Diqing and Tibet. It parasitizes larvae of ghost moths and produces a fruiting body which used to be valued as a herbal remedy which is thought to improve human immunity.

3. Yak meat

This is a sweet and delicately flavored red meat. Yak is juicier than buffalo and elk, and never gamey. It is lighter tasting than beef, never greasy. This all-natural premium lean meat is never bland or mushy. This most desirable flavor and “feel”for discerning palettes come from its lean tender meat and natural oils.
