Journey to Tibet

A classic Tibetan journey over the vast arid desert known as the Tibetan Plateau, connects the mystical worlds of Lhasa and Kathmandu. We fly to Lhasa across the Himalayas to the Tibetan Plateau between two of the world's highest mountains, Mt. Everest and Kanchenjunga. From Gongkar Airport, on the long drive into Lhasa, marvel at the high altitude landscape and architecture of the Kyichu Valley, so different from that of Kathmandu.

This tour is a cultural feast of highlights both in Lhasa and on the Tibetan plateau. In the once forbidden city of Lhasa we commence our tour with a visit to the historical Samye, Tibet's first monastery, and experience its tranquil atmosphere. Visit the Potala Palace, former home of the Dalai Lamas, still dominating the city atop its rocky pedestal. Catch the monks engaged in lively philosophical debate at the once great monasteries of Drepung and Sera. Laden with souvenirs and memories, fly back to Kathmandu for another day's exploration, before departure. These once remarkable forbidden lands with its extraordinary people will leave you with a lasting memory of Shangri-la.
