Eastern Tibet Tours included the most popular tours to Nyingtri, eastern Tibet, a land of ragging rivers and deep gorges, alpine forests and rolling grasslands. The best time to travel eastern Tibet is from Apr to Nov.
Equally remote, but completely different scenically, are the wild valleys and gorges of eastern Tibet. From Lhasa the southern route heads eastwards over a high pass to the beautiful lake of Draksumtso and the fascinating Kongpo Region, with its lovely Lamaling Temple. From here the road climbs to the Serkhymla, for excellent views in good weather of Namche Barwa, before dropping down into the dramatic gorges north of the Yarlung Tsangpo. There’s some great accommodation on lake Ngantso & Rawoktso, from where you can visit nearby glaciers.
