Mt. Everest

For this tallest mountain in the world, ask yourself, what the most attractive part are you looking for? If you just want to catch a glimpse of its spectacularity and experience more authentic Tibetan culture, our 8 DAYS LHASA GYANTSE SHIGATSE MT. EVEREST GROUP TOUR is a wonderful choice. It contains many symbolic attractions of Tibet, such as the Potala Palace, Johkang Temple, and Barkhor Street, etc. And you can also spend a night at an Everest Base Camp guesthouse.

But if you want more about the mountain and Himalayans, you may consider our 12 DAYS TINGRI TO EVEREST BASE CAMP TREKING TOUR. After three days of rest in Lhasa, you will start to go to Everest and spend 6 days thereby climbing in the daytime and sleeping in the tent at night. Therefore you could see the beauty of the mountain at close range.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t like any of the above two options. There is a third choice for you, 10 DAYS LHASA SHIGATSE MT. EVEREST NAMTSO TOUR.  Choosing this one means you choose a romantic way because you can get close to the natural nomadic grasslands. Except for Mt.

Mt. Kailash Pilgrimages

As everyone knows that Tibet is a mysterious place. But why? Because it’s the pilgrimage center of Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, and primitive Bon religion. There are four holy lakes and one sacred mountain here. 

In the far west of Tibet, Mt. Kailash, the most sacred mountain, is watching its people silently. Every pilgrim takes it as their destination. They believe they can finally get peace and happiness after kora around Kailash.

So if you are interested in feeling the pilgrimages, you can choose our 14 Day MT KAILASH KORA WITH MT EVEREST TOUR.
