Half Day Drak Yerpa Hermitage Excursion
Half-day excursion to Drak Yerpa Hermitage + hike;
Drak Yerpa is only 34 km northeast of Lhasa. This half-day excursion begins with a beautiful drive along the Lhasa River, passing through several lovely villages on the way. Following the Yerpa Chu Stream (a tributary of Lhasa River) we will come to the historic complex of caves and temples on the ridge of Yerpa, which make up the hermitage. From there we will hike up the winding stairway and visit the old caves and devoted hermits. Visitors may get chance to interact with the hermits and learn more about their tradition, and will enjoy a great view of the entire valley from the temples.
Drak Yerpa Hermitage is one of the holiest cave retreats in Tibet. Some of the caves there have more than 1,500 years of history as hermitages. Several prominent ascetics in history have lived there. The naturally formed, curved, rock formations are beyond description. One special attraction is Lhalung puk, a congested, rocky cave, where Lhalung Pelgyi Dorje hid for several years after he assassinated the last king, Langdarma. We will relax and enjoy the morning in the peaceful surroundings of Drak Yerpa Hermitage and then return to Lhasa in the afternoon.
