Overview

Our Lhasa  to Kathmandu Overland Tour via Everest Base Camp covers many different sightseeing and cultural activities, in the shortest possible time, without missing out on some of the most popular landmarks of the entire region. It is a journey into the historical, adventurous and spiritual highlands that have long captured the hearts and minds of travel enthusiasts around the world. Tibet is the origin of Mahayana Buddhism, home of the Dalai Lama, and the target of devout pilgrims as well as adventure seekers. This 8-day adventure excursion covers Lhasa’s streets, Dalai Lama’s Potala and Norbulingka palaces, ancient monasteries like Tashilhunpo, Sera, Drepung, Rongbuk, and Sakya among others, and of course, the Everest Base Camp which presents the sheer north face of Mt. Everest.

The route from Lhasa to EBC to Kathmandu 

The 10 days Lhasa Kathmandu via Everest Base Camp Tour begins and end at the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. The tour continues from Kathmandu International Airport from where you fly to Lhasa and then drive continues from Lhasa in our own private vehicles. The touring trails comprise drive to Gyantse, Shigatse, Lhatse, Rombuk, Tingri, and Zhangmu.

You know, Lhasa is one of the highest cities in the world with an altitude of 3,490! It is surrounded by snow-capped mountains over 5,500m elevation that presents the eye-captivating natural scenario for visitors. The 10 days Lhasa EBC tour comprises a visit to the UNESCO world heritage and culturally significant Tibetan Buddhist sites in Tibet such as Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery, and Norbulingka Palace. Additionally, the tour offers the exploration in the Barkhor street, Tibetan Museum, holy lakes, monasteries, and so on. Passing through the popular monasteries, pristine lakes, glaciers, farming valleys, and breath-taking scenic mountain views, live your dream with Hiking Adventure through the Lhasa Kathmandu via Everest Base Camp Tour at the peaceful, traditional, and pleasing environment!

Travel Gear: Upon joining, each participant will be sent a list of required and recommended gear for this journey that they will be responsible for. Accommodations: In Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse and Saga, you will be staying in comfortable and pleasant locally-rated 3 or 4 Star Tibetan-owned hotels. At Everest Base Camp Region, accommodation will be either simple tent hotels or a simple guesthouse. At Lake Manasarovar, along the trek around Mt. Kailash and at the border at Kyirong, accommodations will be very simple as these areas are very remote and poor. Guesthouses have no heat, but plenty of blankets. Toilets are usually outside and are not always clean. Showers at guesthouses are often unavailable or are available at a local shower house that is not attached to the hotel.  Hotel upgrades available in
Lhasa upon request.

Meals: Breakfast is included in the price for each morning you are in Tibet. Lunch and dinner are not included in the price. Eligibility: Participants must be in good health and be able to spend each day walking around towns, villages and monasteries. Most of this tour will take place in mountainous terrain between 3600 meters and 5200 meters (11,800 feet to 17,000 feet) above sea level. The 3 day trek around Mt. Kailash is 52 kilometers long and will take 3 days to complete. This trek is beautiful, but is quite demanding as the high pass rises to 5630 meters (18,465 feet). You will spend 3 nights in Lhasa for altitude acclimatization before going above 3600 meters. Ascent will be slow and gradual along the way from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp and on to Mt. Kailash. 

Responsible Tourism: Tibetan is foreign-owned, and Tibetan staffed. All of our guides and drivers are local Tibetans who have been working in tourism for many years. It is a top priority for us to support as many Tibetan-owned businesses as possible. During this tour, all of the hotels you will be staying at in Tibet are locally-owned. The preservation of the culture of Tibet, as well as the protection of the environment of Tibet, are extremely important to us. In fact, when we are not out leading and arranging journeys across Tibet, we are working with
