Genyen Mountain Trek - Gyalthang, Tibet

Genyen Mountain Trek

Thanks Khampa Caravan for this favorite place.

Our favorite trip is the Genyen Mountain Trek. The Genyen area is isolated, not many people go there. During the trek we meet many different cultures and spend time with the nomad communities. The monasteries in the area are very special since they were founded by the first Karmapa. Guru rinpoche and other important historical figures are said to have meditated in caves in the Genyen area. There are many beautiful lakes in this area and wild flowers are plentiful. Local people claim to have seen visions in the reflections of these lakes. This camping trek can be 5 to 14 days. During the trek we participate in making butter, cooking and yak herding with local communities.

If you'd like to visit this place, get in contact with Khampa Caravan who can give you more information.
