Travel to Himalaya - Yes!

Tibet is the ancestor of mountains, the source of rivers, the rooftop of the world. There are mountains, ancient templates, and sweet tea. The yaks on the vast pastures of the plateau. A blue water pond in the windswept desert. The golden sunlight on the peak of the snow mountain. It is the place of serenity and sacredness. It lacks oxygen but is full of belief. Keep walking, to the Himalayas, bestow your soul a farthest and the freest journey.


Himalaya Destinations

Kula Kangri

—A wonderland in the middle of the Himalayas

Mount Kula Kangri is one of the four sacred mountains in Tibet. It consists of three peaks and is located on the border between China and Bhutan. Kula Kangri hiking trails perfectly mix snow mountains and plateau lakes. The main peak towering into the clouds is a lofty and spectacular sight. The moment you see it, you will marvel at nature’s power and accept your smallness.
Below the southern slope, lush grass blankets the earth like a fairyland painting. You will feel rooted there, not wanting to leave. Next the impossibly sapphire-blue of a mysterious lake surrounded by the Kuragongi peaks. Legend has it that you can see your past life in its waters. Kula Kangri is an entry-level Himalayan hiking route, but the journey is full of diversity—climb over ridges, encounter serene lakes, visit the solemn temples, wake up with the snow mountains at sunrise and fall asleep in the company of glimmering stars.

Kaamo Tsangpo valley

—An uncharted charming valley

Described as “the most beautiful valley in the world” by British Adventure in their book Everest Expedition, Kaamo Tsangpo Valley is located on the eastern slope of Mount Everest. It is the largest and best preserved virgin forest in the region. Standing in this valley, Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, Mt.Lhotse, the fourth highest peak, and Makalu, the fifth-highest peak, will all be lined up in front of you. In the summer, the valley is lush with vegetation, with large swathes of delicate pink alpine azaleas in full bloom and crystal-clear streams. Camping in this isolated valley, away from the bustling city, you will enjoy peace and feel the quiet power of the world’s highest peak.

Shishapangma, also called Gosainthān, is the 14th highest mountain in the world at 8027 meters above sea level and is the only 8000-meter mountain entirely located in China. The 180-degree hiking trail around Shishapangma will provide a snowy experience. The distance between the hikers and the peaks is less than 10 kilometres. Along the way, you are surrounded on three sides by majestic snow mountains. Hikers can behold the towering snow mountain group from multiple angles, as well as glaciers thousands of meters high. The campground is beside the alpine lakes on the eastern slope of Shishapangma, which is the best place to get shots of the peaks and their reflections. Trek on the ridges between the valleys to feel their charm and power, and you’ll find that Shishapangma has the purest colours of the Himalayas.
