Tibet Ganden Samye Trekking

14 Nights & 15 Days

Overview

This trek is more like a pilgrimage and less like a trek. And the ode is to the tallest mountain in the world – the Mt. Everest. The base camp has increasingly got popular over the years but still commands respect in the trekking circles as it poses a lot of challenges. Of course they hold no sway as compared to the stunning views of the Himalayan Range, the simplicity  of  Tibetan life and the spiritual essence of far flung monasteries. All of this adds up to a memorable trip.
