What you can expect

Day 1 Lhasa-Lake Yamdrok-Karola Glacier-Gyantse-Shigatse
We will visit Yamdrok Lake, one of the must-see attraction between Lhasa and Everest Base Camp. Yamdrok Lake, also called Yamdrok Yumtso, is a lake with two long arms of water, making it look like a scorpion from the sky. This shape means you can never see its shape from around it. From Gyantse, you can see one arm, and follow it until it disappears around a bend in the shore which makes it difficult to estimate the size of the lake. So never give a miss to this highlight alpine lake. Later we will pass and enjoy the Karola Glacier on the roadside. Then we will take a visit to Pelkor Chode Monastery, the main monastery in Gyantse. Pelkhor Choede in Gyantse town is located about 260 km to the south of Lhasa and 100 km to the southeast of Shigatse city. The monastery is a short walk from the heart of the town.
