Tibet Tashi Lapchi Trek


- Tibet Lapchi trekking, which is also called Milarepa's Hermitage, Lapchi trekking is situated to the southwest of Tingri and east of Nyalam. Milarepa Cave, the famous Tibetan Yogi (poet & singer as well) lived and died in this region, so the region became one of the most sacred destination in the Himalayas after Kailash and Tsari. We usually know about the Miparepa's Cave of it, actually there are verities of cave hermitages in Lapchi.

We commence our trekking from Tashigang (near Nyalam) which is situated on the friendship highway. From Pelgyeling, we trek to Tashigang (the cave of Sang Phuk and chapel founded by Dhuldzin Rinpoche) and Jamgang La (Kang-La) then eventually reaching Lapchi. In Lapchi, we take an extra day to explore around the region then return to Nyalam via the same route.

Nyalam is situated about 35 km inside of Tibet from the Nepal boarder (Kodari), so it is practical to commence this trek from Kodari (border town of Nepal). Kodari is 115 km north-east from Kathmandu. It requires a 5 hours overland journey to reach there there from Kathmandu.

Alternatively, travelers can fly to Lhasa from Kathmandu or from mainland China then travel to Tashigang on 4WD Jeep via Gyantse and Shigatse then commence trekking to Lapchi. The best time for trekking in Lapchi is between May and September
