Nyingchi, Tibet, China
Today's journey will bring you to Lamaling Monastery and through Sekyim La Pass for a fantastic view of Namjia Bawa mountain into the beautiful Lulang Valley, where you will hike around the villages.
A fantastic day beckons as we bring you to Lamaling Monastery, one of most important monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism. Afterwards, we continue across the Sekyim La Pass, located at 4,720 meters above sea level, where you will make a photo stop to admire the giganting sky-piercing Mount Namjia Bawa in the distance. The sacred mountain tops at final altitude of staggering 7,700 meters above sea level.
Arriving into the Lulang Forest, enjoy a hike through the villages with lush mountains and wildflower-dotted meadows set amidst the backdrop of snow-capped mountains. In local Tibetan language, Lulang translates to "Dragon Valley" or "The Place Where You Will Not Be Homesick", and we are not surprised why!
