Latest Update: April,25 2018

Trekking in Tibet has always been a thrilling experience for lots of keen trekkers. With unique natural environment, Tibet is endowed with diverse landscape of snowy mountains, huge canyons and holy lakes. Undoubtedly, it’s a test of strength and perseverance to trek on the high land of Tibet Plateau, with an average altitude of 4000m. But you will reap the most stunning alpine scenery, and unveil the mysterious culture and tradition deeply rooted on this religious land of Tibet.

Classic Trekking Routes in Tibet

Currently, there are several classic trekking routes for tourists to explore in Tibet. Known as the Kailash kora, the Mount Kailash Trekking could be one of the most challenging treks in Tibet. It’s a pilgrimage road for Tibetan Buddhism believers, as well as a mind-blowing scenic route for ordinary tourists. Ganden to Samye Trek is the one that offers various views, including lakes, mountains, nomad camps, Tibetan villages, and sacred monasteries. As one of the three holiest lakes in Tibet, the heavenly Namtso is also a popular destination for trekkers. Kora around this holy lake is not only a practice for praying good fortune, but a sightseeing tour for fantastic lake view and beautiful birds in summer. And the most popular route may be the trek from Old Tingri to Everest Base Camp. Though physically challenging, it will be a lifetime achievement to make it to the Everest Base Camp to gaze upon the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest.

Of all the trekking routes, the trek from Shalu to Nartang is the best short one. The trek follows the old trade route between two great Buddhist monasteries, Shalu and the Nartang. Since the trek is the shortest one in Tibet, just about 10 hours’ walking, it is suitable for all level of trekkers or tourists.
