Day Four We had to stay in Lhasa for a few days to adjust to the altitude.
Lhasa is at 3600 meters above sea level. It is a real trip getting use
to the low atmospheric pressure. The first couple of days we went to the
main temples in Lhasa. In the afternoons I went
to see the monks chanting at the Jokhang Temple.
Day Five We camped by a mountain river on the way to Lake
NamTso. We met nomads who herded Yaks on
the mountains by our camp.
Six - Day Eight We
camped at Lake Nam Tso. We were given a tour of the local area by the
people we met there. There were many sacred caves
camped along a river
in a remote mountain farming area. We had a campfire by the river at night.
Local farmers came by to visit our camp in the morning.
camped at the Tidrum Nunnery which features
a Hot Springs medicinal spa.
