ReTweet this thread
In this 9 days tour,you will see not only many beautiful palces in Lhasa,but also you can see Shalu Monastery,Ngor Monastery,Nartang Monastery,Tashilunpo Monastery and have many trekkings around these famous monasteries. This two or three days walk is a good opportunity to get a feel for trekking in Tibet. The two passes en route, Showa-la and Char-la, are not panicularly high or difficult and the trail heads are easily accessible from Shigatse. This trekking begins at the historic Shalu Monastery and traverses west over a couple of small ranges to Ngor Monastery. From Ngor it is a downhill slog to Nartang Monastery. The route passes through several villages as well as uninhabited dry canyons. It is about a 10 hours walk to Ngor from Shalu, which is best divided into two days and another seven hours from there to Nartang. This trekking tour can be done from April to the end of October.
