Ever-changing sights make a wonderful experience for you.

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, it 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.

From Lhasa to Gyantse is abt 264km, en route you will pass by Khamba-la Pass (4794m), and with the huge massif of Mt Nojin Kangtsang (7191m) at far distance in view. 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.

Dear Alexandra,
 
The Tibet Nepal Nature Scenery Tour will lead you into the fascinating natural beauty of Tibet and Nepal. There are so many attractions such as mighty snow mountains, vast clear lakes and grassland waiting for you to discover. Step into the pure land and get close to the original nature there!

For the cooking class, we can arrange it for you.
 
Which kind of sport you prefer? Usually we suggest our guests have proper rest and avoid strenuous activities to prevent the occurrence of altitude sickness.
 
For retreat, we can't arrange it for you but you have lots of chances to feel the profound culture of Buddhism.

Would like to visit Tibet and Nepal thinking of train journey from China. With visit to Terracotta Army either at the start or finish of trip. We are senior citizens will be 70 and 65 yrs and don't require any treking or walking long distances. Many of the temples palaces seem to have a steep long climb. Is there anyways up apart from walking to get to them. We would like to see or go to everest base camp. Worried about the altitude. We were in Peru 2 years ago and visited Pacu Pacu which was quite high. Thinking of coming in September 2019. All help would be appreciated. Are international return flights included in the price when quoted and train fare. With sleeper if necessary. We would like to stay in 4 star hotels

Dear Jane, 

According to your preference & schedule, I strongly suggest you take our 3 Days Xian Highlights Tour and then take the train from Xian to Lhasa to join our 7 Days Lhasa Mt.Everest Kathmandu Overland Group Tour. There is no much trekking or walking on this trip. 

Yes, you will go to visit Everest Base Camp with the altitude 5200m on this trip, but please make sure that you don’t have serious hypertension or heart disease, then would be fine.

Yes, it's possible to have overland tour from Tibet to Nepal. The tour Tibet Nepal Nature Scenery Tour you mentioned is from Zhangmu port, which is closed now. Currently, the newly open port between Tibet and Nepal is Gyirong. We can provide a similar Tibet Nepal tour from Gyirong port for you. Just get through the customs from Gyirong port instead of Zhangmu port.

 

Before I quote for you, could you please kindly let me know What kind of accommodation you would like to stay in? The Luxurious (5-star), the comfortable (4-star), economy class (3-star) hotel or the budget guest house?

Hi Rudy Klaassen, as far as I know, the train is not available between Shangrila and Lhasa (Tibet). I'm afraid you have to take the flight and the cost is about US$240 one way per person. We can help you book the flight if needed. I think you can apply for a Visa which will allow you to stay longer time (eg 90 days) in China. The details you'd better inquire your local Chinese Embassy. We'll arrange all the necessary Tibet permits for you and you just need to send us the copies of your passports and China visas. Since the Zhangmu Port is still closed now, I suggest that you can consider travelling from Lhasa to Kathmandu through the Gyirong Port. In this case, please have a look at our 7 days Lhasa Mt. Everest Kathmandu Overland Group Tour.
