The best season for trekking in Nam Tso Lake is late May to Mid-October,
however you must be prepared at all times for wet weather, snow
and cold winds. Nam Tso situated at an altitude of 4590 meters at
the edge of the Qhiang Tang, Tibet's vast Northern Plateau. Summer
rain can be quite persistent during the July and August; also snow
fall may block the way at Largen-La some times.
Our trek begins from Duojia Temple. After four days trekking through
glaciated valleys and mountains of the Nyenchen Thanglha range around
the Nam Tso Lake we reach Tashi peninsula, we will visit Tashi Dorje,
a cave temple of Nyingma Sect at the southeast of the Tashi peninsula.
During the summer months the wide open spaces are filled with nomad
herders and their herds of yaks and tents - an intoxicating sight.
We shall also visit sacred spots, holy shrines, and the bird sanctuary.
Since the region is very remote, we should carry camping &
kitchen equipment and provision for the entire trekking part. You
can combine Nam Tso lake trek with Lhasa tour or any other Tibet
tour that ends or commences in Lhasa.
