Songtsam Lodge Rumei, a Remote Oasis (Sponsor Post)

Songtsam is Asia Week New York's 2020 Presenting Sponsor. Learn more about another one of their stunning lodges below!

When travelling the Songtsam Yunnan to Tibet route, Markham is the first stop and only way to enter Tibet from Yunnan. Nestled away in a valley, the lodge is located next to Zhuka Village in the north and vast farmland in the south. Guest rooms all face Lancang River, ensuring views of the natural stream outside and the green terraces nearby. The lodge embraces bright colours such as green, yellow, white, and peacock blue, mirroring the colours of the sky and surrounding snow-capped mountains, rivers, and fields.

Destinations & Activities
At an altitude of 2,600 metres, this remote oasis is situated at a point where the Songtsam Yunnan circuit, the Yunnan-Tiber route, and the western Sichuan road connect. This is the first resting place after passing Meili Snow Mountain on the banks of the Lancang River.
