Tibetan Wonder Tsedang, Lhasa and Everest
19 days trip ex-Kathmandu
Tibet with River & nature safari in Nepal
This tour combines Tibet tour with the adventure in Nepal giving one the insight of both the countries. In Tibet you are on this, one of the most popular trips, which feature the overland trip with one way flight to Lhasa or vice versa. The flight over the Himalaya is spectacular. It’s great experience in getting soaked in Tibetan culture and visit to the north base camp of Everest at Rongbuk. In Nepal, you will be doing the world class white water rafting down the Bhote Koshi and experience the rich and diverse natural heritage of Nepal, in Chitwan.
TIBET is 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.
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 TSEDANG: Eastern cultural centre well called as the cradle of the Tibetan civilization; LHASA: cultural capital of TIBET; GYANTSE & XIGATSE: central cultural centres. TSEDANG offers the oldest monuments like Yumbulakhang (2nd century BC castle), Chongye (tombs of ancients Tibetan kings) and Samye monastery (the 1st Buddhist Monastery in Tibet dating the 7th century). 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.
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 lifetime achievement which will surely fill in a special arrogance in your life forever.
Everest BC from Rongbuk Monastery
Every decent 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).
New highway from Lhasa to the Nepal border
In brief, your memories of this holiday in TIBET is enriched by the lingering impression of the most lavishly decorated huge monasteries & temples, saffron coloured monks, ever smiling people with their typical lifestyle and above all, the challenging Himalayas.
