To virtually all Tibetans, the natural environment of Tibet is sacred. Within Tibet's sacred geography, lakes play a significant role. One of the most important lakes is Lhamo Latso. Located near the Yarlung valley in central Tibet, Lhamo Latso gained fame for it's potency in providing Buddhist Lamas who traveled to the lake, with visions of prophetic nature. Over the centuries it became a tradition for lamas in search of a newly reincarnated Dalai Lama to travel here and sit in meditative absorption until visions of the new child and his location were received. It continues to be used for visionary purposes through the present day. The area around the lake provides views of various Himalayan summits. This trek is perfect for those limited on time, yet wishing to experience Tibetan culture in a seldom visited area. Depending on interest, this trek can be expanded to include monastic complexes, and cave hermitages in neighboring valleys.
