Trola Range - Xining, Tibet

Trola Range

Thanks Gary McCue for this favorite place.

I have a number of mountain ranges I enjoy exploring and returning to across Tibet, but my favorite is the Trola Range in East Tibet. By Himalayan standards the peaks are not that high (the highest are about 20,000’/6000m), but this glaciated granite range is incredibly spectacular with spruce clad valleys, alpine lakes, streams meandering through picturesque meadows, long remote valleys, breathtakingly jagged summits, as well as two huge monasteries (Palpung and Dzongsar) and numerous small temples and meditation retreats scattered through the region.

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