In a belief that has passed down the centuries, every Tibetan believes that an individual, family or nation possesses a “life-spirit”, called a “la”. This spirit is embodied in natural phenomena such as mountains, lakes, river, and trees. The life spirit of Tibet is identified with Lhamo Lhatso, and hence this is the sacred lake of Tibet, which foretells the future of the country and the rebirth of the Dalai Lamas. Every time a Dalai Lama passes away, the searchers for the next reincarnation travel to this lake for visions that will point them in the direction of the next Dalai Lama.

 

GRADE C (Moderate to Strenuous) :
This trek is for the more serious hill walker. It involves walking at medium to high elevation so a higher level of physical fitness and stamina is required.
