From Lhasa to the Everest Base Camp
Duarte On
5 - Excellent
“We flyed from Katmandu to Lhasa. Spend two days on the capital and then caught a mini bus to the Everest Base Camp! Along the trip, 5/6 days journey we visited many iconic places. Unfortunely we did't get to Everest Camp because Nature did't let us. But i'm persistent! I want to go back!”

1.15 hours 2 Star Hotel at Flora
After breakfast, drive to the Kathmandu International airport. Fly into Lhasa by Air China or Sichuan Airlines.

After landing at Gonggar Airport, meet our Tibetan guide, and drive to Lhasa where we will check into the hotel. It's advisable to rest and take it easy for the remainder of the day due to Lhasa's altitude.
8 hours 2 Star Hotel at Flora
The day will be spent exploring several of Lhasa's monasteries in the company of a guide and interpreter. One of these is the Sera Monastery, one of the best-preserved monasteries in Tibet. Within its whitewashed walls and golden roofs, several hundred monks live and study.

After lunch, we'll visit the Norbulingka, the summer palace of the Dalai Lama, as well as the Jokhang Temple. This temple is possibly the most sacred shrine in Tibet and there is always a procession of devout Tibetans in the complex.

Surrounding the Jokhang is the Barkor - a maze of narrow cobbled streets that is the central market of Lhasa.

8 hours 2 Star Hotel at Flora
This morning, we will visit the Potala Palace, which dominates the city of Lhasa. A spectacular building, this palace contains the private quarters of the Dalai Lama as well as grand staterooms and many important chapels. There has been a palace on this site since the 5th or 6th century, but the present palace was constructed in the 17th century.

A visit to the Drepung Monastery this afternoon will complete a truly awe-inspiring day. Founded in the 14th century, this monastery was once the largest in the world with a population of around 10,000 monks. These days that figure is down to several hundred, but there is still much to see and do as it was left relatively unscathed during the Cultural Revolution.

The rest of the day is at leisure. You are free to further explore the city, revisit a favourite monastery or simply sit in a café overlooking the Barkor and watch the pilgrims, or shop at one o the many stalls lining the route of Jokhang.

Today, we start our journey to Kathmandu. Travelling by jeep/ van/ or bus along the Friendship Highway, we cross the Khamba La [4794 meters] end enjoy stunning views across the waters of the Yamdrok-Tso Lake.

We continue westwards over another high pass, the Karo La [5045 meters]. where we are treated to the spectacular sight of a huge glacier tumbling down to within a few hundred metres of the road. After passing through beautiful valleys and colourful Tibetan villages, we arrive in the town of Gyantse.

Before leaving Gyantse, we have time to visit the Gyantse Dzong and Gyantse Kumbum. The Dzong is a fort dating from the 14th century known for its amazing views of Gyantse and the surrounding Nyang Chu Valley. The Kumbum is a large gold-domed stupa and its many small chapels house an impressive array of Tibetan Buddhist murals.

We then continue on to Shigatse, a short drive away, arriving in time for lunch. Shigatse is the second largest city in Tibet and after exploring the local market, we will visit the Tashilhunpo Monastery. This monastery is one of the largest functioning monasteries in Tibet and there is much to explore within its high surrounding walls.

Today we continue along the Friendship Highway, marvelling at the barren yet spectacular landscapes of Tibet. Beyond the small town of Lhatse, we cross the highest pass on our journey, the Gya Tso La [5220 meters]. From here, we descend to the plains. We then continue drive over the Tibetan plateau, cross a small Tibetan town and reach Shegar. Shortly after leaving Shegar, we leave the Friendship Highway and head south over the Pang La [5150 meters] towards the main Himalayan range. The views from the top is incredible and you can see scenes from Makalu to Shishapangma. Below the pass, Everest initially is hidden from view, but as we turn the corner into the Rongbuk Valley it reappears, more impressive than ever.
