An Overland journey to the roof of the world Tibet from Kathmandu via Everest base camp:
Visit Monasteries of Tibet, Medieval city Kathmandu, Journey to Everest Base Camp Tibet – the exhilarating Tibet tour with Lhasa Everest base camp tour we offer.
Amazing views of the Himalayas and the Tibetan landscapes, greet you on the overland drive from Kathmandu to Lhasa. The lonely planet says it is one of the most beautiful picturesque highway in the world to drive.
En route to Tibet from Kathmandu visit Everest Base camp – Rongbuk monastery, Shigatse, the second largest city in Tibet, site of the Tashihunpo monastery. The seat of Panchen Lamas, Tashihunpo is a vast complex with the golden rooftops and impressive chapels. Although having suffered the ravages of man and time, Gyantse, our next stop, with its unique Palkor Choden temple and Kumbum Chorten, offers a glimpse of an irretrievably lost era in some of the most extraordinary works of art found in all of Tibet.
Take an exhilarating drive to Rombuk – 5000 meters (Rungbuk monastery) and a mere 7 kilometers, below Everest Base Camp. The view from here is utterly spectacular!
Rombuk is certainly the highest monastery in the world and its guesthouse offers very basic accommodations, but the views that surround you, will more than compensate for it, where you could lie in bed and watch the moonlight illuminate the mountains.
The monastery here was first built in 1902 by Nyingma Lama and originally housed more than 500 monks. Today, only about 50 monks and nuns remain, sharing the same prayer hall but with separate residences. The nuns here are great fun and will be delighted to have you join their evening prayers.
In the mystical capital of Lhasa, there is ample time to explore the former home of the Dalai Lama, Potala Palace, Tibet’s, world famous resplendent landmark with over 1,000 rooms and 10,000 shrines. There is also Jokhang, Tibet’s holiest temple with its priceless statues and frescoes and the Norbulinka or Summer Place from which the present Dalai Lama fled in 1959.
Shoppers mustn’t miss Barkhor, the bustling bazaar of old Lhasa which is right on the pilgrim’s circumambulating route around Jokhang. Laden with souvenirs and memories of Tibet, you fly back to Kathmandu from Lhasa in a mountain flight that treats you, to close-up views of the mighty Himalayas.
