Itinerary

Arrive in Kathmandu where you are met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. OR Meet your tour group in Lhasa, if you are joining our tour in Tibet.

Your journey across Tibet exploring the Buddhist culture and awesome mountain scenery begins with a stunning mountain flight across the Himalaya, close to Mount Everest to Lhasa. Here you spend three days acclimatising and exploring the Potala Palace, the Jokhang Temple, the monasteries of Drepung and Sera, and the Summer Palace of Norbulingka.

Your journey begins on the impressive new road across the wild Tibetan plateau, traversing high passes to Gyantse, at the head of the old trading route to India, and then onto Shigatse where we visit the famous Tashilumpo Monastery.

Your four wheel drive vehicle makes the journey over the rugged Pang La pass (5,200m) possible and from here you visit the Rongbuk Monastery and then onto nearby Tibetan Everest Base Camp. You retrace your steps back to Shegar where you rejoin the main ‘highway’ to cross the Lhakpa La pass (5,220m), where there are stunning views of both Everest and Shishapangma (8016m).

The pass is beautifully decorated by colourful prayer flags and marks the descent through the Tingri plateau to Nyalam from where you descend steeply through an impressive gorge to the border at Zhangmu. You cross into Nepal and drive though small villages and terraced hillsides back to Kathmandu. (BLD)

You are transferred to the airport for your journey home.(B)
