  • Cost Info

Our trek passes through glaciated valleys and mountains of the Nyenchen Thanglha range to the pebbled shores of the Namtso lake. Surrounded by spectacular snow-covered mountains, it is a place of desolate beauty and the site of a holy hermitage that draws pilgrims from all over Tibet. During the summer months the wide open spaces are filled with nomad herders and their herds of yaks and tents � a heart touching sight. We also visit sacred spots, holy shrines, and the bird sanctuary. The other highlight of this trip is a visit to Tashilhunpo Monastery, Sakya Monastery & Rongbuk Monastery.
