Three sacred mountains - Gyalthang, Tibet

Three sacred mountains

Thanks Uttara Sarkar Crees for this favorite place.

My favorite trek is the outer kora (circuit) of Mt. Risum Gompo with the sacred mountains of Chenrezig, Jambeyang and Chana Dorje. There is an immense beauty of nature, both small and large: the alpine flowers and the symmetry of three sacred mountains and oracle lakes.

This favorite place is closest to Gyalthang. The following responsible travel operators can help you organise an itinerary for you:
