The original Potala Palace was built by the King Songtsan Gampo for his bride in 637 AD, and it was rebuilt by the fifth Dalai Lama.
khang Temple has a beautiful golden roof, which will attract you when you get close to it. The golden roof of Jokhang Template. Ancient wooden beams and rafters can be found under the roof.

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.

Sacred Lake Yamdrok glows with various colors, like turquoise, when the sun is shining
The white glacier is spectacular from the highway
Day 5 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 is located at the foot of Drolmari (Tara's Mountain), Shigatse
Rongbuk Monastery has guesthouse for the tourists. There are lots of tents nearby as well. Tourists need to be careful on the belongings.
Day 6 EBC – Gyirong Border 370km, approx. 8hrs
You can get up early and enjoy the sunrise of Everest Peak at lodging area if the weather is good. And then, we can drive you to the Everest Base Camp. After sightseeing, we will drive to Gyirong, the border which connects Tibet & Nepal. On the way, tourists can enjoy breathtaking vista of Mt. Shishapangma and the Pekutso Lake. After passing the Ghungtang Lhamo(5236M), we will arrive in Gyirong in late afternoon.
The best time to travel to Mt. Everest would be May, June, Sep and early Oct. EBC is relatively less windy and clear.
Since there is a very simple post office at EBC, you can send postcards  from this highest place to your families, your friends, and even to yourself.

Everest Kathmandu Overland Group Tour +6 Days Nepal Private Tour. May I know when would you like to do this tour?

I am hoping to do this tour late April 2019 preferably starting April 22. How much will this trip cost?

Caroline

 

In your inquiry, you mentioned that you are interested in our Chengdu Tibet Nepal Overland Flight Tour, which is a private tour. And you want to have it in April 2019. Frankly speaking, the cost of a private tour for a solo traveler would be a little bit expensive. For people less than five, we usually suggest them join our small group tours to keep the cost down.

 

So, how about we divide this tour into two parts? Tibet (group tour) and Nepal (private tour).

Hi Penny. Would you please price this tour for me? It looks appealing to me as I can get Tibet and Nepal in one tour. Thank you.-Lorenzo

penny

Dear Loren, please let me know when you plan to do this tour first and then I can provide you the cost accordingly. Besides, I have to remind you that all the borders between Nepal and Tibet still are closed now. So you have to return to Lhasa and then fly to Kathmandu (Nepal) instead of travelling to Kathmandu directly through the Zhangmu Port after visiting the EBC.
