Tingri Holidays

Tingri Travel

Tingri is a town in southern Tibet often used as a base by mountain climbers for treks around Mount Everest and Cho Oyu. It lies at an altitude of 4,300m, 50km from the Nepali border along the Friendship Highway. It’s a convenient stopover for people travelling between the two countries.

The town lies beneath the old Shekar Dorje Dzong. This fortress used to enclose Shekar Chode, a Gelug monastery that is still being restored. The shallow, fast-flowing rivers of melted snow water in the surrounding Tingri Plain make its grassy meadowland ideal for grazing Tibetan animals.
