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.

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.

In your inquiry, you mentioned that you are interested in our 13-day Tibet Nepal Nature Scenery Tour, which is a private tour. 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).

And you also want to have it in Feb 2019, due to Tibet's unique background, apart from a Passport and a Chinese Visa, all foreign tourists allowed to enter Tibet must have Tibet Permits. We could surely get all your necessary permits to Tibet after your tour booked with us, we need your passport and China visa copies to apply for them from Tibet Travel Bureau before tour starts and get them to you usually within 12 working days. However, Tibet Permits will not be issued for all tours from mid-February to March. So how about having this 7 days Lhasa Kathmanu overland group tour plus 5 days Nepal trekking private tour in Dec or April?

13-day Tibet Nepal Nature Scenery Tour Just like quotations on various season, is winter a very bad season to travel?

Winter is not a bad time to visit Tibet. On the contrary, it could be a good time. Firstly, it’s not as cold as you think in Tibet in winter, especially in Lhasa, the temperature of the daytime is around 10-degree centigrade. Secondly, it’s the off-season of Tibet tourism, which means you could travel with a relatively lower cost and avoid the crowded.

 

However, the tour you are interested in is a private tour, of which the cost will be a little bit high for two travelers only. 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).
