Lhasa Tour

The Himalayas stand as a vibrant contrast to the serene desolation of Kashmir, offering a rich mosaic of natural beauty. These mountains are a symphony of colours, where vegetation shifts with altitude, painting a dynamic landscape. In the summertime, this region is a spectacle of life and colour. Wildflowers bloom in abundance, and azaleas light up the terrain with their vivid hues, set against the backdrop of majestic, snow-capped peaks.

Mornings in the Himalayas often reveal peaks shrouded in mystic mists, adding an element of mystery to their grandeur. The rainy season brings a different charm; with frequent showers necessitating a poncho, but rewarding with mesmerizing, clear skies and captivating rainbows afterwards. The post-rain sunshine illuminates the mountains, enhancing their allure.

The blue lakes, reflecting the towering peaks, create a serene, mirror-like image that captivates the eye. These moments, where nature’s elements converge in harmony, make the Himalayas a destination that captures the heart, leaving visitors with a longing to return.

Embarking on the East Slope of Mount Everest: A Trekker’s Dream Journey


Set out on a remarkable 15-day trek along the less traversed east slope of Mount Everest, exploring the diverse and vibrant paths of Garmagou and Chentang. This journey, rated with a three-star difficulty, offers an enchanting blend of glacial landscapes and the warmth of Sherpa villages.

Gama Valley: The Crown Jewel of Trekking Routes

The expedition begins in the enchanting Gama Valley, celebrated for its extraordinary natural splendour and known as “the most beautiful valley in the world.” Once a hidden gem, primarily navigated by Nepalese guides, Gama Valley has evolved into a popular destination, attracting a global community of trekkers.

Discovering Hidden Treasures of Everest

The route along the east slope of Everest unveils hidden wonders beyond the iconic peak itself. Trekkers are greeted by a series of secluded lakes stretching from Xiaowucuo Pass to Chentang, offering serene reflections of the towering mountains. This path offers a unique perspective on Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu, showcasing their beauty from seldom-seen angles.

The Pristine Wilderness of Garmagou

Traversing through Garmagou, located between Dingri and Dingjie counties, trekkers experience one of the most pristine environments in the Everest region. This valley, with altitudes ranging from 2,000 to 5,000 meters, boasts the largest untouched forest in the area. Each May, the valley comes to life with Nepali herdsmen and their livestock, providing a glimpse into traditional pastoral life.

Rich Biodiversity and Cultural Immersion

The region is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, home to rare species like snow leopards and Tibetan snow chickens, and a variety of flora including rhododendrons. The journey through Garmagou to subtropical Sherpa villages is not just a trek but a cultural immersion, offering insights into the rich heritage and customs of the Himalayan people.

A Confluence of Natural Wonders

The trek culminates in a mesmerizing confluence where the Karma Zangbo and Qudangpengqu rivers meet, flowing towards Nepal. This spot, adorned with sulfuric hot springs and cascading waterfalls, evokes a sense of being in a mythical paradise.

Trekking the east slope of Mount Everest through routes like Garmagou and Chentang is more than a physical challenge; it’s an exploration of the Himalayas’ hidden beauty and cultural richness. Each step on this journey offers a new perspective, making it a dream for every trekker seeking to experience the diverse wonders of Everest.

Shishapangma Great Circle: A Trekker’s Photographic Odyssey


Embark on a unique 14-day trekking experience around Shishapangma, one of the world’s renowned 8,000-meter peaks and the only one entirely within China. This trek, rated with a three-star difficulty, is a dream for photography enthusiasts, offering panoramic views of Shishapangma’s south, east, and north slopes, capturing its reflections, golden-hued peaks, and the striking ice tower forest.

The Journey Around Shishapangma

The adventure begins in the south slope valley of Shishapangma, moving towards the base camp. From there, trekkers venture to the east and north slopes, completing a full circle around the mountain. This route offers a visual feast of endless snow-capped mountains and the unique opportunity to photograph the alpine lakes that beautifully mirror these peaks.

A Trek Through Glaciers and Ice Forests

Shishapangma is distinguished by its three peaks of similar heights, creating a breathtaking skyline. The trek includes a visit to the Yebokangal Glacier on the northern slope, a site known for its spectacular mountain glacier ice tower forest, a rare sight in Tibet outside of the famous Rongbuk Glacier. The journey through this area is akin to walking through an ‘ice crystal garden’, with seracs and glaciers forming an otherworldly landscape.

Exploring the Diverse Glacial Terrain

The entire region around Shishapangma is a hub of glacial activity. The trek traverses various glaciers, including the 13.5-kilometer-long Yebokangal Glacier, the Daqu Glacier, the Geya Glacier to the east, and the expansive 16-kilometer-long Fuqu Glacier on the southern slope. These glaciers form a complex network of ice and snow, presenting both beauty and challenge to trekkers.

Cultural Significance and Innovative Routes

Shishapangma holds a special place in Tibetan culture, surrounded by myths and revered as a sacred mountain. The traditional hike to Shishapangma’s base camp has been a favourite for many, but recent innovations have led to the creation of the loop route, offering new perspectives and more comprehensive scenic vistas.

The Loop Route: A New Perspective

This loop route, developed in 2011 and launched for trekkers in 2014, avoids the need to backtrack, ensuring fresh and exciting views throughout the journey. It includes a visit to the alpine lakes beneath the eastern slope and a trek to the northern slope, home to the Yebokangal Glacier. This route not only provides a physical challenge but also a visual feast, capturing the essence of Shishapangma in all its glory.

The Shishapangma Great Circle trek is more than a journey; it’s a photographic odyssey that brings trekkers face-to-face with some of the most stunning and unspoiled landscapes in the Himalayas. It’s an experience that combines the thrill of adventure with the beauty of nature, making it a must-do for every trekker and photography enthusiast.

The Majestic Peaks of Kula Gangri

Situated on the China-Bhutan border, Kula Gangri is surrounded by six towering peaks, each exceeding 7,000 meters. The landscape here is dominated by the Kulagang Riwei Peak and Kulagang Ri Peak III, along with other impressive peaks like Karejiang I, II, and III. These peaks form a breathtaking barrier, creating a world where the sky meets a blanket of ice and snow.

Discovering Uncharted Beauty

The route to Kula Gangri was charted by Manfeng, a pioneering group in exploring unique trekking paths in Tibet. Their exploration led to the discovery of the mesmerizing lakes surrounding the Kula Gangri Snow Mountains, which are now an integral part of this trek. The route includes a visit to the three holy lakes of Kuragang, each unveiling its beauty in a sequence that is sure to leave trekkers spellbound.

Challenging Glaciers and Peaks

For those seeking more adventure, the route offers challenging treks to glaciers like Dangpu, Zhanwo Zhuoguo, and Karilangpu. The journey into the Kangpu Valley leads to the disputed area between China and Bhutan, home to the Gangkar Bensen Peak and the Rumgopu Glacier. This section of the trek is a haven for climbers, with technical peaks ranging from 6,000 to 7,000 meters, promising an adrenaline-fueled experience.
