The "Beijing To Kathmandu" tour starts in Beijing and ends in Kathmandu. The "Beijing To Kathmandu" tour is an adventure trip that takes 18 days taking you through Beijing, Lhasa, Gyangtse, Xian and 7 other destinations in Nepal and China. This is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

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.

“In September of this year I traveled on 3 World Expeditions trips. As I am usually an independent traveler, and usually not keen on group travel, I was overwhelmed with the quality of the three tours, Beijing to Kathmandu, Chitwan and Bhutan Dragon Kingdom. The itinerary was carefully planned and timing was excellent, well balanced with appropriate arrival and departure times. Tour leaders were professional, with excellent knowledge and were all passionate about their areas, with great first aid knowledge. This was extremely important for the high altitudes at which we were traveling and trekking. Care, comfort and safety were paramount. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the meals wonderful. The groups were small, 4, 8 and 5, and all wonderful and fun company with all participants having similar interests. I will definitely travel with World Expeditions again.”

“Overall an eye opening great trip. First off the local guides were fantastic. From Allen in Beijing, Emma in Xian and Helen in Xining through to Tashi and Ber Singh in Tibet and beyond, these folks were simply outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and every day was another laugh and a smile. Obstacles were overcome and the group was fed watered, bedded down and kept cozy and entertained the entire trip. An extra note to all the drivers without whom we would have been lost. I will never drive in Asia after watching these guys navigate the traffic with style and aplomb while singing along to whatever was on the radio. The accommodations ranged from basic to 5 star and the food was seriously great the entire trip. The sights ranged from the stunning Beijing of palaces and hutongs to the breathtaking warriors in Xian. The brief time we spent in Beijing, Xian and Xining makes me want to see more of China. Tibet, where we spent most of the trip is seriously beautiful. A wide barren land of simple breathtaking landscapes. Truly your camera does not do any of it justice but you just keep taking more shots as you go and hope for the best. Seeing Everest/Chomolungma for the first time is an awesome humbling experience. Watching sunrise across the face the next day is guaranteed cure for altitude sickness. You can forget everything as you sit on a rock and simply watch. We crossed into the green dampness of Nepal and the first rain of the trip and onwards to the madness of present day Kathmandu, greeted with smiles laughter and Namaste everywhere we went. In a few words, loved it. What are you waiting for GO!”
