Mt. Namcha Barwa (7756m) is situated in the lush forested valleys of South-Eastern Tibet. It was first climbed by a joint Chinese-Japanese team on 30 October 1992. The Tsangpo River flowing to the east is the world highest river. Before reaching India, the river has to make several huge loops in this beautiful mountainous landscape.
This trek starts in Lhasa through Samye and Tsedang; Close to the disputed Indian border area we follow the Tsangpo River and arrive at the village of Lusha near the big bend in the river. Passing through villages of the Loba people (a Tibetan minority group), we make our way through the forested region of Pei to the Namcha Barwa Base Camp.
The relatively low altitude of the base camp area (1600m.) offers amazing views of the vertical snow capped peak of Namcha Barwa. After a circumambulation of the holy mountain of Atsom Neh, we continue to the Gyala monastery. We make our return to Lhasa via Gongbu Jiangda and Ganden.
We can also operate this trek in reverse.
