Shalu Nartang Trek
Shalu Nartang Trek can be started from both Shigatse and Gyantse. It is one of the adventurous treks in Tibet that crosses two soft and dry passes -- Showa-la and Char-la. Our journey starts with drive to Shalu Monastery that traverses upper Longsang, Ngor Monastery and walk downhill slog to Nartang Monastery. En route we pass through the several villages and isolated dry canyons.
Unique Adventure International always efforts to operate the itinerary as per the negotiation made. Not always, but extreme adventure activities being operated in remote mountain regions, bears high risk and needs to be flexible. Unpredictable incidents, accident, weather conditions or flight schedule may be the reason that forces us to make slight changes in our scheduled programs.
