Private Namtso trekking is very popular trekking tours for many years. Namtso means Heavenly lake and it is the largest salt lake in Tibet. It is located at 4590 meters above sea level. Its located at the edge to the severely-weathered Chang Thang region from the north of Lhasa. The loop walk across the Nyanchen Thang-la Mountains to the pebbled shores of Namtso takes 7-8 days.Our Trek starts at the Damshung valley and then to the mystical environs of Tash-Do hermitage and the vast Namtso. The final leg of the loop enters a remote region of the Nyanchen Thang-la range. We have to cross the Kong-la pass 5,240m above sea level, and wind through the deep glacial valley on the return to Damshung area. Namtso is also inhabited by large flocks of birds both resident and migratory. Then we drive to Reting Monastery, to Drigong Monastery and return to Lhasa. The trek is challenging, involves crossing of several rivers on foot and requires walking 6-7 hours through rocky and steep mountains. You should be healthy, physically fit, and well prepared to take up this challenge.
