*Cultural highlights in Lhasa.
*Cradle of the Tibetan civilization - Tsetang.
*5 days trekking to oracle lake Lhamo Latso and Chkorgye Monastery

This pilgrimage to Lhamo Latso is richly varied and has much to offer: high snow mountains, a magnificent monastery, seldom visited cave hermitages, nomads and their black-tent culture, and a sacred 'oracle lake'.

Being at the radiant Oracle Lake of Lhamo Latso is a high point of this journey. It is the foremost 'vision' lake in Tibet and sitting Dalai Lamas were obligated to come here at least once in their lifetimes.

Besides the high passes, this pilgrimage goes through areas noted for their warm, dry climate. Rain can be expected in July and August, less in June and September, and virtually none during the rest of year. Heavy snow, however, can blanket the passes from December through February. For nine months of the year this pilgrimage is a good bet.
