TIBET OVERLAND EBC

 

Out of several activities and tours in Tibet, the best way to understand and visit Tibet is by taking a tour starting in Lhasa and ending in Kathmandu. The excitement of being on the Roof of the World with the awesome natural beauty of Tibet is one of the highlights of the trip. Not to forget the added bonus of an opportunity to reach Everest Base Camp from the northern side. Long regarded as a land of mystery and magic, harsh yet exquisitely beautiful, Tibet is without a question a world apart. Overland tours reveal some of the best Tibet has to offer - high passes topped by colorful prayer flags, crystal clear lakes in indescribable shades of brilliant blue, snow capped ranges sheltering valleys, covered by fields of barley and golden yellow rape. This current itinerary of Lhasa to Kathmandu overland is the result of much experience
