Nam-Tso Lake Tour-17 Days

Namtso is an extremely beautiful lake with turquoise blue water which is situated at an altitude of 4718 m.

Hiking excursion to Namtso Lake is getting popular among visitors in Tibet. The lake is 70 km long and 30 km wide and is the biggest salt water lake in Tibet.

It has the Nyechen Tangla mountain range (7000m peaks) on its back ground to enhance its beauty. The wide open space around the lake, dotted with the tents of local nomads is interesting to see.

The 190 km drive from Lhasa to Namtso lake involves the high Yangpachen pass (5630m), so proper acclimatization is very important to do this hike successfully. No one should ever take this trip lightly because of the short distance it possesses.

The best season for trekking in Nam Tso Lake is late May to October, however you must be prepared at all times for wet weather, snow and cold winds. It is a very remote region and all the supplies must be carried by us.

Our trip starts with a sensational Trans Himalayan flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa .We explore different cultural and other heritage sites of Lhasa and then we start the trek. After the trek we drive for overland journey to Kathmandu. En route we visit the magnificent Gyantse fort and Kumbum monastery in Gyantse and Tashilhunpo monastery in Shigatse, cross high passes and visit nomad camps, see the world’s highest peaks and conclude our trip in Kathmandu.
