Location: Ganden to Samye Monastery. 3 hours east from Lhasa

This is a 4 day trek through some beautiful and challenging high passes. It starts at Ganden Monastery, which used to be one of the biggest Monastastic community's in Tibet (Before the chinese desroyed it). Stay 1 night hear, and start out to Hebo Village the next day. pass over Shugala pass 5200m, and Chitala pass 5000m, camping in the snow. Hire a yak from Hebo to carry your backpacks (don't attempt to carry them yourself till you've passed chitaLa pass). Then walk through a beatiful gorge, and pass several small nomad encampments. Ask at a local camp store in Lhasa for a map on this trek.
