Tibet Tour

Undoubtedly ‘The Roof of The World”, Tibet never fails to enchant the traveler who is in pursuit of the exotic, mystical and spiritual world. Follow the trade and migratory routes used by Tibetan and Nepali traders and migrants for thousands of years on an overland journey from Kathmandu to Lhasa and engage all your senses to the rustic, yet, colourful and magical destination. Home to the “Potala” or the former palace of HH The Dalai Lama and now converted into a museum, it is a sight you would not want to miss. The Kathmandu – Lhasa road excursion has options of driving alongside the Himalayan range or by the Everest base camp. The whole essence of the excursion is not only in the destination but also the drive itself.

The holy Mt. Kailash ( the abode of Lord Shiva ) and the Mansarowar Lakes can be visited by traveling along the trans-Himalayan route. Mt. Kailash and Mansarowar Lake are revered by Hindus and Buddhists alike. Hot Springs, temples and monastries dot the region and make it a worthwhile visit. The journey itself offers much pleasure to the traveler.

We have two different scheduled trips that can be organized from the month of March to the end of November each year as per following itineraries.

Day 01:KATHMANDU – NYALAM,

We start our tour with an early morning drive to Kodari, the Nepali border post. Weather permitting there will be fine views of Langtang, Gauri Shanker, Melungtse and Khumbu Himal ranges. Depending on the road situation we walk or drive up to Zhang Mu where we clear Chinese immigration. After the formalities we continue our journey through a beautiful gorge to Nyalam crossing the Himalayan range.

Altitude 3800 m., hotel

Day 02:NYALAM – LHATSE,

Our first stop on the Tibetan plateau will be on the 5200 m. high Lalung la pass from where we have a breathtaking view of the Himalayan range and Shisabangma, the highest peak in Tibet. While having lunch in Lao Tingri, the peaks of Mt. Everest (Qomolongma in Tibetan) and Cho Oyu can be seen.  This day our journey is long but the
spectacular Tibetan plateau will make you forget time.
