Kathmandu Lhasa and Everest Base Camp Tour one of the most wanted and popular tour in the world,With an average altitude in excess of 3,500m, Tibet can truly be described as the roof of the world. Lying to the north of the great Himalayan range which separates it from its neighbors India, Nepal and Bhutan, much of the country is high-altitude desert. With its spectacular mountain scenery and rich Buddhist culture, Tibet is a remarkable place to visit.
On this trip, we will follow the Kyrung Highway through some of the most amazing landscape on Earth. We’ll pass small Tibetan settlements, nomadic herdsmen wandering across the wide arid plains and awe-inspiring mountain peaks. Equally as fascinating is the wealth of cultural interest and we will have plenty of opportunity to explore this side of Tibet, both in Lhasa and the other towns we pass through on our journey to Kathmandu.
We spend 4 nights in Lhasa, staying right in the centre of the old city. This will allow both plenty of time for acclimatization and easy access to the city’s main attractions – the Potala Palace and the Johkhang Temple. Leaving Lhasa in our Toyota Land cruiser 4 wheel drive, we’ll travel through this amazing country, staying in the best traditional hotels Tibet has to offer. In the towns of Gyantse and Shigatse we explore further monasteries, remote villages, and people and fully immerse ourselves in the Buddhist culture.
Without doubt, a highlight of this trip is the visit to Everest Base Camp, where the sheer grandeur of Everest’s north face has to be seen to be believed. Inspiring landscapes and mountain views combined with its rich Buddhist history and culture, make visiting Tibet a truly unforgettable experience.
