The Tsurphu to Yangpachen trekking is an excellent choice for those
who want to get a close look at the Tibetan herders (drokpa) and their
semi-nomadic lifestyle. Although they have permanent winter homes they
still spend much of the year camping with their animals.
at Tsurphu Monastery this rugged walk crosses several alpine valleys
before emerging into the broad and windswept Yangpachen valley. This is a
high elevation trekking exceeds 4400m for the entire duration and a
maximum elevation of 5300m at the Lasar-la. Combining alpine tundra and
sweeping mountain panoramas with visit to monasteries and a nunnery,
this trekking nicely balances cultural and wilderness activities.
