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 holds 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
