Among the nomadic pastoralists in Changthang, 1-22 july

Following ancient caravan trails, this trek goes through open grasslands, jagged peaks, turquoise lakes, picturesque villages, Buddhist monasteries and high passes. You will also have the opportunity to meet the nomadic pastoralists who roam the high Tibetan plateau. This trek is graded among the tough ones. It is conducted specially for those who prefer not to indulge in easy treks. Our crew members and their logistic expertise, including horsemen, have the ability to tackle the sudden hardships that could occur in case the weather is not favorable. The journey ends at Tsomoriri (4 550 m), a wonderful high altitude lake, which is also the reproduction area of a variety of endangered migratory birds.
