Nyenchen Tanglha trek is a fabulous trek of traversing the Nyenchen Tanglha Mountains to the famous holy Lake Namtso A tundra-filled upper valley gradually climbs to the Kyang-la (Onager pass), followed by a steep descent onto the Changtang plains. Fantastic views of sparkling Namtso and Tashi Do are visible from many vantage points on the trail. And colourful drokpa camps dot the way.. Namtso is known as sacred place of Buddhism as well as Tibetan for ‘Heavenly Lake’, is often described as being next to heaven because of its lofty altitude, stunning beauty, pure blue water, and spiritual associations.It is the highest saltwater lake in the world. Snow-capped mountains and open grassland, dotted with yak herds and local nomads, surround the crystal clear water of Lake Nam, making it one of the most beautiful places In clear weather, the water is a stunning shade of turquoise and you will be surrounded by magnificent views of the nearby mountains in Tibet In this trekking, a number of stream crossings await you. Nyenchen Tanglha Mountains is about 600 miles (970 km) in length. Its highest point is 23,250 feet (7,090 m) located 60 miles (97 km) to the northwest of Lhasa. The range is parallel to the Himalayas and north of the Brahmaputra.[3] Another source says the Nyenchen Tanglha Mountains extend 460 miles (740 km) from Nyêmo County in the west to Ranwu County (the southwestern part of Baxoi County) in the east. As one of the four well-known holy mountains in Tibet it is enveloped in clouds and mist, snow-capped all year round. Interestingly, in the Tibetan language, Nyenchen means “big god” and Tanglha means “mountain on the highland”. In terms of its name we can see the reverence the Tibetans hold for this mountain.Therefore, every year,many tourists pay a visit to Nenchen Tnglha mountain, which is an unforgetable lifetime experience.

June to September is the best time to do this trek  especially in August, you can see the snow-covered Nyenchen Tanglha clearly. It is not suggested go to Namtso from November to May of next year when the lake is usually entirely frozen.

The altitudes of Namtso Lake area are about 5,000 meters, nearly 1,100 meters higher than that of Lhasa. And the oxygen is very thin especially during early morning and night. So you’d better make full preparation before your visiting. Keep a good healthy, and take preventive medicine if necessary

Due to the extreme weather and environment, there is no any hotel at Namtso Lake. Tourist can only stay at tent guest houses or camp at the Tashi Penisula shore. Travelers can go to Damxiong County for better accommodation. But if you want to watch the sunrise, you must stay nearly to the lake. Usually, travelers transfer to Namtso in the early morning from Lhasa, and sightsee 2~3 hours, and drive back to Lhasa because of the poor accommodation and high altitude.

Only some basic foods of Sichuan Cuisine, Tibetan food and snacks are offered in the eateries in the tent area. And the prices are much higher than in Lhasa. You are suggested to bring some food or snacks from Lhasa.
