This hiking trip is incredibly relaxing, but one that is impossible to reach on your own.
Therefore, local people escort you through the village, which can be chosen on foot or via horse.
With the diverse altitude changes you are able to experience different views of the surrounding landscapes and villages.
A milky blue glacier meanders from the end of the horizon until it melts into the lake.
When you finally reach the top, admire and take in the breathtaking views over a cup of handmade coffee and a slice of cake.
Sunset at Xiudeng Temple
The best spot to photograph the sunset is in the Rawu area. Xiudeng is a Gelug Sect temple and some of its ruins still remain after it was built 500 years ago. Pilgrims from nearby villages take the kora around this temple every day. The temple sits on a cliff surrounded by wilderness and at the foot is Rawu Lake, with two glaciers located at the front. During the late afternoon, the sun starts to end its time here and prepares for the remaining other half if its journey on the other side of the world. Warm golden light beams its way across this vast land as the sun descends into the horizon.
