4. The challenge of the Tibet Trekking.

Having professional equipment for this journey is optional. To complete the trek, travelers must cross two elevated passes, namely Chitula at 5200 meters and Shaola at 5100 meters. So, we strongly suggest doing some daily exercise before going to Tibet.

For optimal views, the ideal time to go trekking is early September. From mid-May to mid-October is also a suitable period for trekking.

The Gelug school's founder, Je Tsongkhapa, built the Ganden monastery. In contrast, the very first monastery in Tibet, the Samye monastery, was established in the 8th century by King Trisong Deutsen and Maha Guru Padmasambhava. There are two retreat areas, Yemalung and Chimpuk.

11. Journal of Tibet Trekkers to Kangshung.

Four travelers from Scotland confirmed a family trekking tour on July 29th after exchanging several emails. To enhance the journey, we arranged for a Tibetan Tour Guide named Gelek from Tashizom town, which is approximately 80km away from the trek route.

With two teenage children aged 15-18 and the onset of the rainy season in early August, the trek was quite challenging for the family. Nevertheless, they relished the opportunity to push themselves. The family marked the completion of the trek with a celebratory gathering at Shambhala Palace.
