A unique journey through China and Tibet exploring stark contrasts from the metropolis of Beijing to the vast landscapes of the Himalaya and the Tibetan Plateau. We begin our journey in Beijing - a contrasting metropolis of the imperial capital and 21st century architecture. In Xian the Terracotta Warriors are a highlight, and we also visit the Muslim quarter with its hidden mosque and food stalls. After visiting the Xian’s lively Muslim quarter we stroll along the magnificent city walls before a flight to Xining where we board our overnight train to Lhasa which links us with the Tibetan Plateau. In Lhasa our Tibetan speaking guides immerse us into the culture and the highlights including the Potala Palace, Norbulingka and Jokhang. To complete our journey we travel by vehicle to vibrant and chaotic Kathmandu, diverting enroute to the famous Rongpu Valley to view the immense north face of Mount Everest.
