Boat trip on Namtso Lake
Crossing Namtso Lake to reach the Sera Monastery provides a memorable experience. A traditional Tibetan boat traverses the pristine blue waters to the foot of Tatipu Hill, where this impressive Monastery lies. Of great cultural significance to the Tibetan Buddhists, the building is one of only a few destinations where you can catch the famous debate session of the monks, a sight rarely witnessed by modern-day travelers.
Camp in a yurt
Get in touch with abundant natural beauty and connect with ancient Tibetan traditions by camping in an authentic Tibetan yurt. Not only providing travelers with a unique experience, yurt camping also takes visitors back in time to how the nomads have lived for centuries. Constructed using indigenous materials, the yurt provides spacious-yet-cozy nights under the stars, where the gentle ripples of the lake can be heard.
Ride a yak
A ride on a gentle and majestic yak around Namtso Lake offers a truly unforgettable experience of this rustic province. Tibetan Yaks can carry up to 300 pounds without struggle and are a way of life for everyone in rural Tibet. Snow-capped mountains, vibrant-open fields and effervescent wildlife make for stunning, natural scenery while trekking lakeside at a leisurely pace.
