Lapchi “Godavari” in Sanskrit and “Nyanyon” in Tibetan is the one of most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Himalaya. Lapchi Kang Range is situated in the eastern part of Nepal on the border with Tibet, at a height of 4850 meters in the vicinity of Gauri Shankar Conservation Area. The land is very remote and need be prepared well logistics. Everything needs to carry on the back of people from Kathmandu including food, camping gears and fire. Without proper management don’t dream to travel this nomad’s wild land.

The region was introduced to Pilgrims as a special site as early as the 8th century but was brought to light after visit of Milarepa (1040-1123), but before that the Mahasiddha Saraha and Padmasambhava meditated in the caves of Lapchi. Miarepa left his mark in many places, such as footprints and sacred springs. In the centuries that followed many outstanding meditation masters from the Drikung lineage went to Lapchi to advance their practice. Currently, there are retreat centers and monasteries under the supervision of Drikung Kagyu school.

Mt Kailash, Lapchi and Tsari are one of the three holy mountains that are believed to be the holiest among mountains, considered the abode of Chakrasamvara, the powerful meditation deity of Vajraya Tantras. These three Holy Places of Tibet, associated with the body, speech, and mind aspects of Chakrasamvara and Vajravarahi.

Many practitioners who fervently emulated Jetsun Milarepa meditated in solitary retreats in Lapchi such as Nyo Lhanangpa, Tsang Nyon Heruka, Gyalwa Gotsangpa, Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol and many unnamed great Yogis visited the site and wrote in praise of the site.
