Gyama Trek

Gyama Trek (Ganden to Sayme Trek)

Gyama valley is a broad agricultural tributary of the Kyi Chu river, situated to the east of Lhasa. Barley fields sprawl across this valley floor, which is splendid with small villages, settlements and temples, including the shrine commemorating the birthplace of SongTsen Gampo. It  will be a 4 days walk from Gyama to Samye and is one of the finest treks in central Tibet. After visiting Samye Monastery, we will trek across Yarlung Tsangpo River and drive to Tsetang. The next morning we will go to Lhasa.. From Lhasa, we continue our journey by driving to Tashido near Namtso Lake and camp there for one night. From Namstso Lake it will take 3 days to trek to the town of Damshung via the Kong-La pass, a route that is simply unforgettable.
