Trekking is the best way to witness the hidden beauties of Tibet.

Trekking is also the best way to help the remote areas in Tibet.

Trekking helps to keep a healthy body and mind.

One of the best Trek near Lhasa is the Samye monastery to Ganden monastery Trek. 

The duration of the Trek is 4 days in total. The trek will start from Drupchi village near Ganden monastery and it will end at the Yemalung retreat area. 

The special of the Trek 

Travelers can witness the beauties of Nomads, Green grassland nature with the fresh clean river from the mountains. 

There is also two beautiful lakes namely Shou Tso, and Palang  Tso.

The difficulty of the Trek 

Travelers won't need the professional gear for this trek. Most of the route is very clear with a smaller path since Nomads will be traveling this route in the summer.

Travelers will have to cross two high passes namely Chitula 5200 meters and Shaola with 5100 meters so we highly recommend Travelers to prepare with some daily few minutes exercise before traveling to Tibet for the trek. 

Best Month to Trek 

The best month to trek will be during the beginning of September for the best view. Travelers can also trek from May to mid-October.

Two Important Monasteries 

Ganden monastery is built by Je Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelukpa school in Buddhism in Tibet. Ganden monastery has a beautiful 2 hours hike to see the beauties of the whole valley. 

Samye monastery is the first monastery in Tibet. Built by King Trisong Deutsen and Maha Guru Padmasambhava during the 8th century. The monastery is combined with the different specialties from Tibet, India, Nepal, and China. 

Two important Retreat areas

On the last day of the trek, Travelers will reach the Yemalung retreat area and the nunnery. The Yemalung nunnery was once the meditation area of Maha Guru Padmasambhava. The view from the roof of the Yemalung is beautiful. 

Another retreat area is the Chimpuk meditation caves. Located east of Samye monastery on the mountains. There are few meditators and a nunnery.

Trekking in Tibet helps to witness the places where they are fewer Travelers. The places where they are no vehicles sound. 

The places where we can hear the sound of the birds and rivers.

Trekking naturally makes us peaceful.

Trekking also gives a great chance to help the places which are remote. The people who are staying in the countryside can have some help from the economy because of trekking Travelers.
