Hiking & Trekking of Tibet
Most trekking is conducted in the center of the country in the vicinity of the major towns and highways. Cities such as Lhasa and Shigatse provide bases from which to equip and lunch treks.
Eastern and much part of central Tibet are laced with large mountain ranges, towering passes and deep valleys and gorges. Western and northern Tibet are even higher, but between the mountains are expansive valleys and plains that can take days to traverse.
