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.
A hard ride today from Lhasa to Nyingtri for abt 8hrs or so, en route, visit the beautiful Draksumtso Lake.
LuLang means “Loong King Valley” in Tibetan language, or “a place that will make you forget your home”. It is located abt 80km from Nyingtri.
Drive from Nyingtri to Tsetang via Nang Xian along Yarlung Tsangpo for abt 8hrs or so.
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.
We will drive to Zhangmu or Kyirong, the border ports which connect Tibet & Nepal. Both of which are currently closed to foreign tourists since the Nepal earthquake in Apr 2015.
Drive to Zhangmu Port in early morning. You are required to walk on your own to cross the border bridge which is abt 50m long. See Nepali driver at Kodari. Transfer to hotel in Kathmandu.
