Shalu to Nartang trek is the shortest one in these Tibet trekking routes, which will take travelers 2 to 3 days to finish the trek(15 hours of walking). In the ancient period, this is a route for trade between two great Buddhist monasteries. Trekking on this route can make you feel like tracing back to the past as you will hike past villages and dry canyons.
Shalu Monastery was built in 1087 AD, and its architectural style is a combination of Han and Tibetans. In 1320, the monastery was handed over to the management of Buton Rinchen Drup. It is said that about 3,800 monks were attracted by the teaching of Buton Rinchen Drup. Therefore, Shalu Monastery became a holy place for many believers to study Dharma.
The Narthang Monastery was established in 1153 by a disciple of Atisa. It is famous for its teaching and discipline.
