The Legend of Namtso Lake
 
Trip Overview Trip Notes Day by Day Date& price Book this trip Enquire this trip
   
   The most interesting portion of this trip has to be the visit of Namtso Lake. But you will realize that just about every inch of land around Tibet is worth watching. Be it their beautiful monasteries and structures, the mountains, lakes or the rich cultural heritage, everything will certainly leave you spellbound. We will begin from Lhasa and have a look at the Potala and the Norbulingkha Palaces. A visit to the Drepung and Sera monasteries is a must and we will do that.
Later we will make a drive to the Namtso Lake. The lake is considered the holiest among the three lakes in Tibet. Namtso is famous for its high altitude 4720 mt. There are wild yaks and other wild animals around the shores of the lake shore. You will also be able to see countless migratory birds here. On the way we will visit the Tsurpu monastery where the Karmapa used to reside.
