Trekking in Tibet

The scope for trekking in Tibet is enormous, and offers you the opportunity to explore an incredible landscape and a glimpse of an ancient life style.

All take place at high altitude (4500m+) and require a moderate to high level of fitness. A minimum of 3 full days should be allowed in Tibet prior to the trek to allow time to acclimatize. All treks operate ex. Lhasa and may be incorporated into any Tibet itinerary.

Tibet Trek - Lake Manasarovar
4-5 days
Chiu Gompa - Langbona -Seralung -Trugo - Gotsuk - Chiu Gompa

The kora (circuit) of the lake is just over 100kms and reasonably flat, though still at 4600m+. You can overnight in the monastery guest houses along the way or camp. Moderate



Tibet Trek - Qomolangma Nature Preserve
Lao Tingri-Rombuk - 3-4 days

One of the most frequently enquired about treks in Tibet due to its proximity to Everest and the great views, but not one of the best experiences. Bear in mind that proximity to Everest is the reason to choose it - not for a remote experience. The trek essentially follows the vehicle short cut between Rombuk & Lao Tingri and you will see vehicles traveling up and down.
