10 Day Kham Tibet Sichuan Trekking Mt. Shagtra Lhatse
Have you ever thought about exploring western Sichuan? Do you want to discover the unique images of Kham? Come and join us in the 10-day Tibetan Kham Mountain Tour. Our professional tour guide will lead you through the splendid journey.
Firstly, we will set off in Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan Province. Then it takes around one day to drive to Dartsedo (Kangding). Historically, Kangding is on the border between Tibet and China, so Kangding is an important Tibetan eastern gateway. Before you go further into Tibetan plateau, we recommend you explore Kangding and its surrounding places deeply. There, you’ll find a totally different image of “the land of snow”. Besides, this tour can largely smooth the process of adjusting the high-altitude sickness.
Next, this tour will proceed to Gyula. For your information, Gyula is also an important geographical dividing line, West, Plateau Uplift zone, the Yalong River and right for the Alpine valleys. The trailhead is a five-hour drive at the Sergyalgo monastery.
For the next few days, we will trek an average of six to seven hours daily to circumambulate this sanctuary. Additionally, we will walk across the nomadic grassing land. To be more specific, we’ll visit nomad’s home, a black tent by our camp side, drink some Tibetan butter as well. It is connected to the southwest of Lhagong grasslands, Southeast contacted with Mugetsok, northeast Yukog grassland, east Rongdra, north Tawu, south Dartsedo county.
