Overview
Trek past fields of Edelweiss and yaks grazing near turquoise glacial lakes and discover the dramatic shark tooth peaks of Nyenbo Yurtse. This the home to Tibetan nomads who live at the base of a mountain that hovers at a lofty 5369 meters/17,615 feet. And getting there is half the fun! Along the way to Nyenbo Yurtse you will get to walk through the mud-daubed alleys of Labrang Monastery and see the untamed grasslands and the nomads who worship there. This particular itinerary offers 3 days of trekking with horses carrying your backpacks every day so you only need to carry a light daypack on the trek.

My trip to Nyenbo Yurtse was actually in May 2017. The scenery is fantastic; it was a really enjoyable trek. Ben was able to get a pack horse to carry our bags even though it was caterpillar fungus season and the local nomads were busy harvesting. It made the trip even more
