Day 1 Arrival in Lhasa

Our staff will greet you at Lhasa Airport/Railway to transfer you to hotel. From Lhasa Airport to downtown Lhasa, usually takes abt 1.5hrs; from Lhasa Railway Station, abt 20mins. After transferred to hotel, the rest of the day you will be free to wander around the city on your own but try not to overtax yourself. The first day's well-rest is crucial to acclimatize high altitude. Remember to drink lots of water, eat light, and not to shower if you can help it.

Then head to Shigatse via the fertile Nyangchu Valley, a wide agricultural plain where colorfully decorated yaks and horses are used by Tibetan farmers to till the land.

Yamdroktso Lake
Karola Glacier
Day 6 Shigatse - Tingri - Rongphu - EBC

Tibet has a serious rule about speed-limit. Though from Shigatse to Everest region is only abt 350km or so, the no-more-than-40km/hr regulation, and the many road checks dotted on the way, really slow us down. So be prepared to spend around 10~12hrs on the road including meal time. The upside is the view along the way is superb. Get your camera ready. Also, prepare some snacks with you to bring along.

If it’s summertime (usually May~Oct), we will carry on the last few kilometers to Everest Tent Camp to stay the night; if winter time (usually Nov~Apr), we will stay at Rongbuk Monastery’s guesthouse. Both places have but dorm bed lodging available. Both places you can see the glorious Everest sunset if the weather is good.

Tashilhunpo Monastery

Dear Luca Sacchetti, thanks for telling us your travel plan! It's ok for you to take the train from Beijing to Lhasa on Aug 7th. I'm afraid you cannot do the 13 days Tibet Nepal Nature Scenery Tour in Aug as this tour will travel from Lhasa to Kathmandu by overland through the Zhangmu Port. Actually, all the borders between Nepal and Tibet still are closed now.

So I have another suggestion for you and please check the email I sent to you. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or doubts.
