Guided Day Hikes
Hike from the Ecolodge across the high hills, following the crest of the ridge, to Lhagang proper. See the temple here, and then take a car back to the lodge.
Hike from the Ecolodge to Balang Temple, a small Nyigma Nomad Temple. Then hike over the hill to a high point above Nyelum Temple, and down to the temple, then back to the Ecolodge.
It is ok to do these hikes without or without a guide; it is up to you! All hikes include a packed lunch.

Hikes and Nomad Homestay
Nomad-guided: Walk up to the nomad camps with a guide to take you places you otherwise may not be able to find! Enjoy the afternoon herding yaks and seeing the area, and try milking yaks in the morning. Walk back the next day on your own. (3-6 hours walk depending on season.)
