Many China experts agree that the poorest places in China are rural Tibetan villages outside of the Tibetan Autonomous Region. Neglected by the government and forgotten by the outside world, these communities have had no choice but to fend for themselves..The Amdo Tibetans live in several remote Tibetan farming communities in the mountains of Qinghai province: Duwa Tsang, Awo Jyil, Ri Ker and Druvdun Hora villages. .They are ethnically and linguistically different from people in central Tibet.
