HIGHLIGHTS OF THE TOUR

Welcome to TIBET – a land so rich in culture and tradition steeped in religion along the far flung unique landscape, aptly called the Roof of the World. Let the age old Tibetan mysteries cast an enchanted spell on you which  hold you  in  thrill and excitement.

The first part of the tour takes you over the majestic Himalaya offering you the long cherished breathtaking view of the Himalayan range including MT EVEREST (8,848 m) by an hour long Trans-Himalayan flight from KATHMANDU to LHASA.

Potala Palace in Lhasa

The 2nd part brings you so close to the Shangri-la of TIBET making you feel yourself as being a part of a unique culture richly woven with legends, myths, rituals and festivals when you are in LHASA: cultural capital of TIBET, GYANTSE & XIGATSE: central cultural centres. LHASA offers incredible sites like POTALA PALACE (majestic winter palace of Dalai Lama dominantly located in the central part of Lhasa city), JOKHANG TEMPLE (8th century temple of Avaloketeshwar), BARKHOR BAZAAR (typical Tibetan downtown still intact with its originality and flavour), DREPUNG & SERA monasteries (the biggest monasteries in Tibet still vibrant with hundreds of monks and lamas) and so on.

Yamadroke Lake

XIGATSE offers Panchen Lama’s TASHILHUMPU monastery (the most beautiful monastery in Tibet). In GYANTSE, you will see the unparallel KUMBUM PAGODA with 100,000 images of Lord Buddha along with PHALKOR monastery within the age old courtyard encircled by the traditional wall all around on a hillock.

The last part of the tour takes you to the typically wonderful but far flung Tibetan landscape with a very high probability of encountering the nomads looking after the famous yak & sheep herds. During this tour, your visit to Everest BC so close to the highest peak of the world becomes a special life time achievement which will surely fill in a special arrogance in your life for ever.

Everest BC from Ronbuk Monastery

Every descent right from Lalung La (pass of 5,050 m) starts telling you how high the plateau is along with the fascinating views of the incredible formation of the highest plateau of the world with awesomely beautiful rocks, cascades and canyons slightly hidden in the thin flying mists amidst the mighty presence of MT CHO OYU (8,201 m) & MT XISHAPAGMA (8,012 m). In brief, your memories of this holiday in TIBET is enriched by the lingering impression of the most lavishly decorated huge monasteries & temples, saffron colored monks, ever smiling people with their typical lifestyle and above all, the challenging Himalayas.
