Lhamo Lha- Tso- The Oracle Lake Trekking - 11 Nights/ 12 Days

Lhamo La-tso is the soul-lake of Palden Lhamo, the protector deity for all of Tibet. The lake is famous as the oracle or vision lake of Tibet. Every year Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama visit the lake once in their lifetime in search of their future incarnation.

Lhamo Lha-tso-The Oracle Lake trekking is a fairly simple trek and traditionally very important for Tibetans but very unusual for travelers. We spend the first few days in Lhasa, and then drive to the Yarlung Valley. We cross the Tsangpo River to Samye monastery and begin the trek from Olkha. Then we follow what used to be one of the main pilgrimage routes to Lhamo Lha-tso beginning from the heartland of Tibet and moving through high nomadic pastures for three days to arrive at the monastery of Chokorgyel. The next day we will climb to the spectacular vantage point from which high lamas would view the lake and seek visions regarding the future of Tibet.

Our vehicles will come around to meet us at the Chokorgyel camp and we will return to near our starting point to visit some little known early temples before returning for a night in Tsedang. It is an easy hour transfer to the airport for departure the next day.
