Everest From Tibet Discovery Tou Overview

The classic overland journey from Lhasa to Kathmandu

Providing a range of rich experiences and an insight into two of the world's most fascinating countries, this unbeatable Tibetan discovery holiday will excite even the most seasoned traveller. Combining Kathmandu, Lhasa, several other important Tibetan monastery towns, as well as an excursion up to the north side of Mount Everest at Rongbuk, this is real adventure travel. Tibetan visa arrangements now require that our groups spend 3 days in Kathmandu, which means we have time to  cherry-pick the most memorable of the city's highlights, such as the Buddhist stupa at Bodhnath. During this time, you'll also visit the medieval city of Bhaktapur and spend a night at Nagarkot on the Kathmandu Valley rim. Then, flying directly over Mount Everest to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, we'll have 2 full days to acclimatise and to see the best of the the city's landmarks, including the astonishing Potala Palace, the Jokhang Temple and and many other important Buddhist monasteries and buildings. Setting off to travel back to Nepal overland in comfortable vehicles, we'll experience the best of the high and wild Tibetan Plateau. There will be stops at roadside villages and viewpoints and short walks to points of interest with the chance to meet the Tibetan people, most of whom are nomadic herdsmen living in yak-hair tents. There's an overnight at Samye Monastery and at the magical monastery towns of Gyantse and Shigatse. We've also included a visit to the Rongbuk Valley beneath the singularly spectacular north side of Mount Everest. Finally, the last 2 days of this epic journey will take you north of Shishapangma, Tibet's 8000 metre peak, to the new Tibet-Nepal border crossing at Kyirong. Revised and improved, this is still, unquestionably, one of the world's great adventure travel holidays.
