Nepal Environmental Treks

Lhasa Everest Base Camp Trek - 11 Days

Tibet has long been known as 'The Roof of the world'. It lies in the south western part Tibet Overland Tour of China bordering India, Bhutan, Sikkim Nepal. The region is full of spectacular skylines of majestic mountain peaks, breathtaking canyons, scattered highland lake, rolling pasture & farm land & pristine forests. The population of the region consists mostly of Tibetans, Monbans & Lhobans cultivating for centuries very unique ethnic traditions & glorious cultures unseen any where else. This is a land of enduring enchantment & tantalizing mystery. For centuries, Tibet has fascinated mankind. This land beyond the mighty Himalayas on the highest plateau of the world, was hardly accessible to the outside world. Nepal Environmental Trekking offers its various fascinating packages for the visitors to experience & make the dream come true.

Within its very short history of tourism the facilities provided to visitors are still basic and limited. So we request our clients not to have high expectations in terms of facilities in Tibet. However, we will always put in all our efforts to make the tours as pleasant as possible. The roads, especially the highway from Kathmandu can be rough & is subject to blockade due to land slides & floods & the high altitude does pose a serious threat to quite a few people. The average altitude of the Tibetan plateau is 4000m above the sea level & that is a lot higher than most people have been in their lives.

Day 05: Tsurphu Monastery / Leten, trekking 4 hours, 11km.

A spectacular first day of trekking up a green valley criss-crossed with mountain streams. Be on the lookout for various species of mountain goats. Several small nomadic communities camp here for the summer herding months, and you may have a stop into a yak-hair tent for a cup of salt butter tea or some fresh yak milk! Crest the ridge top four hours later, emerging onto a high plateau with a scattering of rock-enclosed huts, and look for a flat area for camping. From day one, the scenery is breathtaking, classic Tibetan beauty.

Day 06: Leten / Bartso, trekking 5-6 hours, 15km.

Have your first small pass, the Damchen Nyingtri, bear to the left at the cairns at the crest, and descend into a magical valley of lichen-coated boulders, meandering streams and expansive, powder-blue sky. Three hours later, you will cross the Lasar La and descend into the Yangpachen valley, with its wide open plateaus, spiky grass hummocks and tundra-like parched, cracked patches of earth, and head towards Bartso. The views of Brize (translated as female yak herder) and Tarze (horse keeper) are superb, and you will feel safe in the care of the local mountain god, Nyenchen Tanglha. Camp near Bartso, a drokpa (nomad) village of five or six houses, surrounded by the juniper used for incense all over the Tibetan world.

Day 07: Bartso / Dorje Ling Nunnery/Yambajing, Trekking 6 hours, 25Km.

 Leaving the village of Bartso behind, head towards a wide trail leading across the valley and over another ridge, from where you will be rewarded with views of Nyenchen Tanghlha (7111 m), the holiest mountain in central Tibet . Emerge at Tajung village, and then climb gently up rolling hills where young nomadic boys and girls picnic on the plateaus as they watch their yaks and sheep graze. The vistas are, again, just amazing! Mid-day, you should reach the small Djore Ling Ani Gompa (nunnery), near which you will set up camp. It’s possible that these nuns, some of the friendliest in Tibet, will drag you into the gompas tea-house and pass around a heaping plate of yak meat (use the bowie knife provided to hack a piece off) before getting into the requisite photo session.

Day 08: Yangpachen Hot-spring/ Namtso / Lhasa, driving340kms, 6 hrs.

Our vehicle will pick up from Yangbachen, then drive to Namtso lake, excursion around lake and back to Lhasa (Namtso lake is a must seeing scenic spots once you are already in Yangpajin, it is 160km from Yangpajin, so I suggest to back to Lhasa instead of Gyantse or Shigatse)

Day 09: Drive to Gyantse and Shigatse.Driving over two high passes, Kamba La (15,700 ft) and Karo La (16,500ft) to Gyantse, enroute visit to Yamdrok Tso Lake.

Later visit the ruins of historic Shegar Dzong, once the capital of Tingri region. If time permits, visit Shegar Chode Monastery, which is a small Gelugpa institution.

Day 11: Xegar- Dza Rongbuk Monastery- Tingri. (4980m/16,600ft, 263km, 7hrs).

Breakfast only and drive from Xegar to Dza Rongbuk Monastery in the morning. The journey involves driving over Pang La (5120m/16,794 ft) that rewards you with the views of several 8 thousanders like Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and Mount Everest. The journey mostly goes through dirt road, passing through several picturesque villages. Upon arrival, take an hour walk trek to the Everest Base Camp (5200m/17,333ft). The driver will pick you up at Rongbuk temple and retrace drive to the Friendship Highway and drive to Tingri, a small Tibetan town. Check in guesthouse and take chance for Tingri Dzong Hike or visit the hot springs

Annapurna Base Camp

The day I arrived to Nepal I was picked up from the airport, comport settaled in right away the company was like a family, great in every way. I highly recommend their service. I chose to take on the Annapurna trek for 12 day the experience was breathtaking, majestic, everything was provided. At time it was strenuous walking but worth every effort. It's great to get away from the city life. As you inbark on a uninterrupted journey by the time you reach base camp. Mother nature has provided the greatest picture ever. You are on top of the world, heaven on earth what a reward. But most of all my greatest gratitude goes towards my guide. We became best of friends between is their was a connection immediate and obvious that he embraces every moment as you would there for we were on the same level from the start.
