7 Nights & 8 Days Lhasa Kathmandu Overland Tour
The Great Trans-Himalayan Journey from Lhasa to Kathmandu
Lhasa Kathmandu Overland Tour Starts with a spectacular flight over the snow capped Himalayan mountains past Mt. Everest, Makalu and Mt. Kanchenjunga. Visit the famous Potala and Norbulinkha palaces, the great Drepung Monastery, Jokhang Temple, and walk amongst the crowded Tibetan market – the bustling Barkor Bazaar in Lhasa. Drive past the beautiful Turquoise lake on the way to the historic town of Gyantse with its unique multi-storied Kumbum Stupa.
Our itinerary also includes the famous but rarely visited Shalu and Sakya Monasteries. After visiting the Tashilungpo at Shigatse we start our drive over the Himalayas by way of the incredible Arniko Highway that connects Kathmandu with Lhasa. Enjoy fabulous Himalayan mountain scenery again – this time from ground level !! Once over the high passes flanked by a range of Himalayan giants we enter a land of lush subtropical jungles and rushing streams as we descend towards Nepal. At the town of Kerong on the Tibet-Nepal border we bid farewell to our Tibet friends and drive through the terraced countryside of Nepal to end our journey in Kathmandu. An unforgettable encounter with forbidden Tibet.
