Yamdroktso Lake is a freshwater lake in Tibet
The white glacier is spectacular from the highway
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.

“Tashilhunpo” means “Auspicious Sumeru” in Tibetan language
At the site of Rongbuk Monastery, you can view the highest mountain of the world brightly shining and clearly sparkling. The snowy peak seems happily to touch the blue sky.
Day 7 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.

I am enquiring about a tour from Tibet to Nepal in mid-August, including details for pricing. If you could tell me any information about the tours you offer and the prices, that would be great.ThanksJarrah

n your inquiry, you mentioned that you are interested in our 13-day Tibet Nepal Nature Scenery Tour, which is a private tour. And you want to have it in mid-August. 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).

We would like to start the tour on about 8-th of October. Could you help us to plan this tour? We are flexible with the date. We also need Tibet permit. Will you help us with this?

Yes, we could help you apply for the Tibet Travel Permit.

Hello. We plan to tour Tibet and Nepal for about 2-3 weeks in early/mid July. The starting date and duration can be slightly flexible. We love sceneries, various experiences and cultures, so the '13 day Tibet Nature Scenery Tour' seems quite close to what we want. I wonder if it could be extended slightly to other areas, such as, 林芝,波密,米堆,然乌湖,雅鲁藏布大峡谷,etc。We could also start from 西宁 via train/car. For hotels, clean and comfort are essential, but luxury is not. We don't mind group tour if that can cut cost with sensible size and schedule, but no shopping please. I would be very grateful if you could please advise the deals available and costs on this. Regards

In your inquiry, you mentioned that there are three of you would like to visit Tibet and Nepal for about 2-3 weeks in early or mid-July. So far, we don’t have any group tour involved with Nyingchi. Thus, I think you could have a group tour combine with a private tour to cover all the places you want to go and keep the cost down in the meantime. We don’t arrange any shopping unless the clients ask for. So, no worries. Please check the suggested itinerary as below. I didn’t arrange Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon since it hasn’t been open for foreigners yet.

This tour sounds perfect for what I am looking for. I am wanting to spend time in Kathmandu, Mt. Everest, and experience safari/jungle as well. A trip around 10 days, a little more or a little less, is perfect too. I will be arriving around July 26. I am on a budget, so inexpensive is best.

According to your inquiry, the 13 days Tibet Nepal Nature Scenery Tour is a private tour. If there is just yourself wanting this tour, it will be very expensive. To help cut down your travel cost, I suggest you take 7 days Lhasa Mt. Everest Kathmandu Overland Group Tour first, then take the other part in Nepal. This route is almost the same as the private route you already choose.
