This is a week-long high-elevation trek that gives you a real feel of the Tibetan Plateau and the culture of the Drokpa, semi-nomadic Tibetan herders. You will cross several alpine valleys before reaching the broad Yangpachen valley. Unlike the other treks mentioned here, you are not in the Himalayas on this trek but you have continuous views of them in the distance. It’s a chance to experience the wilderness of the Tibetan Plateau and to get a rare glimpse of the traditional people who still make their living off the land. The majestic views of the snow-capped Himalayas in the distance are a continuing inspiration.

Tsurpu Monastery was built in the middle of the valley facing south with high mountains surrounding the complex, which is a gompa that served as the traditional seat of the Karmapa, the head of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
Tsurphu Monastery has an annual festival around the time of the Saga Dawa festival on the 9th, 10th, and 11th days of the 4th Tibetan month (around May). There is plenty of free-flowing change (Tibetan barley beer), as well as ritual cham dancing and the unfurling of a great Thangka on the platform across the river from the monastery.
The trek is mild and the journey takes about 3 to 4 hours through villages of nomads and Yak herders of Tibetan plateau.
Visit the Dorjiling Nunnery and get to know the lifestyle of the nunnery there.
Black yak wool or white canvas tents are Tibetan nomads’ houses with simple lifestyles and little furniture. There is a stove in the center of the tent. This is the typical lifestyle of Tibetan nomads.
In spite of their permanent winter homes, they spend much of the year camping with their animals. These nomads have vicious dogs and the trekker is fully depending upon self-sufficient for food, shelter, and fuel.
Yangpachen is famous for its geothermal scenery. Every year, Yangpachen Hot Spring emits heat equal to that of 4.7 million tons of standard coal. Yangpachen Hot Spring’s geothermal field covers 40 square km.
Throughout the year, hot water at 70℃ boils and bubbles amid thick fog. The grandest sight appears when the throttle valve is turned on, boiling water and steam will burst straight into the sky.
