Laya Village

Gasa

A three nights trek further north of Gasa town leads to Laya village at an elevation of 3800 meters. Adapting to the harsh climatic conditions and limited resources available at the highland, a unique culture and tradition has evolved and thrived. The village has its own dialect, customs and distinct dress.
Lunana is the most remote village in Gasa. It is seven nights trek away from Laya village. Tourists can experience the culture of nomads living amongst the glaciers. Locals make their living from yak and sheep. Nomads also harvest and sell cordyceps.
