According to TCTS, some of its most popular Tibet trekking tours include the Everest base camp trek, Ganden to Samye trek, and the Kailash Pilgrimage.
Everest base camp trek: Travelers will enjoy four day’s worth of beautiful mountain scenery. Starting at around 4400 meters and ending at around 5300 the altitude may be challenging, however, this trek can be suitable for inexperienced trekkers. TCTS is able to provide vehicle support along the route making it unnecessary to hire a yak person; travelers will arrive each day to camp already set up and a hot meal being prepared.
Mt. Kailash Pilgrimage: The Kailash Pilgrimage is a special journey made by thousands of Hindus, Tibetan Buddhists, Bon, and Jain each year; Mt. Kailash is of great religious significance to these people. A trek around this holy mountain’s base symbolizes purifying the soul of anger, fear, and misperceptions of reality. Tibet travel agency TCTS welcomes travelers of all faiths to learn about Kailash’s significance and engage with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds as they make their way around the mountain. Located in Tibet’s remote western region of Ngari, travelers will experience a wide cross section of Tibet on this journey.
Ganden to Samye Monastery Trek: On this unique Tibet trek travelers will enjoy a blend of natural scenery and opportunities to learn about Tibetan culture. The group sets out at Ganden Monastery, one of the three famous “university monasteries”, and arrive at Samye Monastery about four days later. Travelers will ascend two mountain passes, the highest of which reaching around 5200 meters, before descending to Samye Monastery. The trek traverses fields of boulders, wide-open valleys with streams, and finally a forested area before arriving at Samye Monastery.
These are some of the most popular Tibet treks offered by TCTS. All treks by TCTS include time for sightseeing in Lhasa while travelers acclimatize to Tibet’s thin mountain air; for travelers convenience TCTS is able to provide camping equipment like tents, sleeping bags, and cooking equipment.
