Overview

Lapchi lies to the southwest of Tingri and east of Nyalam. Milarepa, the famous Tibetan saint, poet & singer from the 12 th century, lived and died in this region.       This made this region one of the most sacred destinations in the Tibetan Himalayas. People usually know about Milarepa’s Cave near Nyalam, but there are various other cave hermitages in Lapchi.

We start our trekking from Pelgyeling, a village near Nyalam, which is situated on the friendship highway. From Pelgyeling, we trek to Tashigang (the cave of Sang Phuk) and Jamgang La, eventually reaching Lapchi. In Lapchi we take an extra day to explore the region before returning to Nyalam via the same route.
