Details Itinerary

Day 01:LHASA TO BASUM TSO(3540 m):-
This beautiful alpine lake, also known as Bagsum-tso and Basong tso, is a long day's drive from Lhasa and a worthy 41km detour off the Sichuan-Tibet Hwy. Apart from the sheer beauty of the lake and its surrounding 6000m plus peaks, the site has strong connections to Gesar of Ling, the semi mythical ruler of eastern Tibet, and Guru Rinpoche, the Indian sage, both of whom are said to have resided at the lake. Many pilgrimage sites are connected to the two.

Day 02: BASUN TSO TO BAYI (2990 m):-
Bayi is a large Han Chinese military town of minor interest, except perhaps as a base from which to visit the surrounding sights or restock your supplies. Bayi in Chinese means 1 August, the founding date of the PLA. It is 125 km from Bagsum-Tso.

Day 03: BAYI TO POMI (3000 m):-
Formerly known as Tramo, this small country capital has well-stocked shops and several hotels and restaurants, making it a logical place to spend the night. In clear weather the surrounding scenery is stupendous.

Kham Valley TrekDay 04: POMI TO PASHU:-
Pasho (Chinese: Bashe), formerly known as pema (Baima),is a pleasant town that makes for a good overnight stop. Explore around Pasho visit Neru Monastery & Dola Monastery.

Day 05: PASHU TO MARKHAM:-
Markham, traditionally known as Garthog Dozong, is where the Vigilant PSB commonly catches permit less hitchhikers from Sichuan and Yunnan. At Markham the road splits. The southern branch runs 112km over a pass to Yanjing (salt well) and the border with Yunnan, continuing on the Seqin. Yanjing used to be Tibet's major source of salt, once an essential commodity in these parts.

Day 06: MARKHAM TO LITANG (4680m):-
Surrounded by snowcapped peaks and resting on open grassland, Litang is a pleasant and friendly place to hang out for a couple of days. A horse-racing festival from 1 to 7 August sees the town swells with Tibetan visitors.

Day 07:LITANG TO GANZI (3400m):-
The noisy market town of Ganzi (also spelled Kandze and Garze) sits in a valley at 3400m, surrounded by the sleeping giants of the Trola (Chola) range, and is a natural place to break the Trip. The gorgeous surrounding countryside is peppered with Tibetan villages and resurgent monasteries.

Day 08: GANZI TO MANIGANGO:-
The road winds through deep gorges and pretty Tibetan villages before ascending to the wild and craggy scenery of the 4916m Tro-la in the east of Derge. From the pass, the road descends to the crossroads of Manigango.Yilhun La-tso, a stunning, holy alpine lake bordered by chortens and dozens of rock carvings is about 13 km before reaching Manigango. The lake is backed by the huge glaciers of 6018m Trola peak and it's possible to walk an hour or two up the left side of the lakeshore for glacier views.

Day 09: EXCURSION THE MANIGANGO:-
Resting in a valley between the Tibetan border and the Trola (Chola) range to the east, Derge forms the cultural heartland of Kham. While the Chinese influence is evident and growing rapidly in the town, the old town and surrounding villages are very much Tibetan. There are many historically important monasteries in the valleys south of Derge, namely at pelpung (Chinese: Babang), Dzongsar, pewar (Baiya), Kathok and pelyul (Baiyu).

Day 10: MANIGANGO TO DERGE (4000m):-
Chamdo (literally river confluence; Chinese: Chengdu), located at the strategic river junction of the Aza-chu and the Ngon-chu, is a surprisingly pleasant town. It is dominated by the hilltop Jam paling Monastery, below which huddle the Tibetan old town and the Chinese new town. Over 1000km from Lhasa and 1250km from Chengdu, the town is the major transport, administrative and trade centre of the Kham region. Chamdo has had a troubled relationship with nearby China. The Chinese warlord Ahao Erfeng captured Chamdo in 1909 and ruled the region until the Tibetans recaptured in 1917.Chamdo fell to Communist troops in 1905.

Day 11: DERGE TO CHAMDO (3600m):-
Tengchen (Chinese: Dingqing) is an unremarkable but reasonably pleasant two-street town. It's possible to make calls at the town's telecom office. Both Tengchen and the surrounding region of Khyungpo is strong centre of the Bon religion. The main reason to stop here is to visit Tengchen Monastery, on a hillside 4km west of town. This interesting Bon monastery is actually made up of two separate institutions.

Day 12: CHAMDO TO PANGDA AIRPORT:-
Day 13: FLY TO LHASA over night at hotel.
Day 14: REST DAY
Day15: FLY OUT
