Historically, the majority of Tibetans were nomads, and they were constantly moving to find new places for their herds. They were travelling through the mountains on foot, covering great distances. Nowadays we can walk these historic routes and enjoy the views of untouched nature, the highest mountain ranges, fast rivers, and crystal clear lakes.
The Ganden to Samye trek is one of the most beautiful treks in Tibet. The level of difficulty is tough, you will go over two high passes: Shuga-la Pass (5,250m and Chitu-la Pass (5,210m).
The Ganden to Samye itinerary allows time for acclimatising before the trekking. We will spend time in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet at the altitude of 3,900m before heading towards Ganden monastery, where our adventure begins! We aim to reach Samye monastery, the first Buddhist monastery in Tibet.
Best time of year: April to May & September to October
Number of days: 11
