Tsurpu to Yangpachen Trek (9 Days)

ReTweet this thread
An excellent choice for those who want to get a close look at the Tibetan herders and their semi-nomadic lifestyle. Beginning at Tsurphu Monastery this rugged walk crosses several alpine valleys before emerging into the broad and windswept Yangpachen valley. This is a high elevation trek exceeding 4400m for the entire duration and a maximum elevation of 5300m at the Lasar-la. Combining alpine tundra and sweeping mountain panoramas with visits to monasteries and a nunnery, this trek nicely balances cultural and wilderness activities.
