If you are looking for an authentic cultural experience where you will spend your evenings either camping or among the locals in villages and stay at local people’s homes, this is the tour for you. This tour is the most popular trekking tour in Tibet. This trekking section will take you across two mountain passes, beautiful alpine lakes and local nomads. This is originally a trekking route that pilgrims use, so you will be able to see Tibetans praying on the way. Follow the footsteps of pilgrims to experience their devout hearts. You will trek to Samye Monastery then drive to Tesdang and visit the first palace of Tibet, Yumbulakang and Trundruk monastery.
Recommended Groups: Suitable for youths, students, and young couples.
Conditions: You will have 2-3 days to adapt to the high altitude and prepare for the trekking. You do not need previous trekking experience though a relatively high level of fitness is required. You will stay in tent or local Tibetan’s family during the trekking section and might not be able to take a shower.
Best time: Between May and September is the best time to take this tour. Avoid July and August as they are simultaneously the peak season and rainy season. It may be too cold and windy to do this tour in winter.
