DETAILED DECRIPTION

Take off on the journey of a lifetime, starting in the holy city of Lhasa, the heart of Tibetan Buddhism, and heading past mountainous landscapes that beg for a panoramic lens. Check out famous sites like Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple, and take in the beauty of Yamdrok Lake. Continue on to Mt Everest’s base camp, where you’ll spend a magical night nestled in amongst some of the world’s highest peaks. You’ll end your trip in the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. This unique journey will provide you with insight into the spiritual lives of both Tibetan and Nepalese people.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Lhasa

Arrive in Tibet’s capital, Lhasa, where you’ll be greeted at the airport and transferred to your hotel. We recommend the St. Regis Lhasa, the city’s most luxurious hotel. The drive there will take around two hours, but it will provide stunning views of the Yarlung Tsangpo River and its backdrop of snowcapped mountains. Spend the afternoon at your leisure, resting up for the days ahead and getting acclimatized. Those who so desire may take a stroll around the surrounding areas, checking out some of Lhasa’s must-see spots. Tonight, attend a welcome dinner and traditional Tibetan performance.

DAY 2: Lhasa

Start your day off in the company of your expert guide at Potala Palace, one of Tibet’s iconic landmarks and once home to the Dalai Lama. Next, you’ll head to Sera Monastery, one of Tibet’s great three Gelukpa university monasteries, where you can observe the lively monk debates that take place throughout the day. Dine at a charming local Lhasa restaurant tonight before retiring for the evening.

DAY 3: Samye Temple

This morning, you’ll complete your tour of Lhasa with a trip to the revered Jokhang Temple, where you’ll be guided by an English-speaking lama. This Buddhist holy place has been a major pilgrimage site for centuries. After your tour, take a break for lunch - you’ll need extra fuel for your afternoon shopping trip. Head to Barkhor Street and Chongsaikang Market, two bustling areas that sell a great variety of Tibetan goods and handicrafts. Following this, you’ll embark on a three-hour drive to Samye Temple. This is Tibet’s oldest Buddhist monastery, nestled between the Yarlung Zangbo River and Habort Mountain. Spend the night at the temple inn, or camp alongside the Yagong River.

DAY 4: Yamdrok Tso

Continue your scenic road trip today, coming to one of Tibet’s most incredible landscapes - Yamdrok Lake and its surrounding snowcapped mountains. The lake is one of Tibet’s three holy lakes, and it’s believed to be the lifeblood of the country. Hike around the lake and take in its beauty, and spend a memorable night camping on its shore.

DAY 5: Shigatse

Wake up to fresh mountain air and splash some of the fresh, cool water from Yamdrok Lake on your face to help you wake up. Continue your trip today, driving along the Yarlung-Tsangpo River to Shigatse. This ancient city is home to some fascinating historical sites, including Tashilhunpo Monastery. Visit this important place, originally built by the first Dalai Lama, and interact with the locals who pay their respects here. Check in to the simple, comfortable Shigatse Hotel.

DAY 6: Tingri

Wake up this morning and get ready to hit the open road once again, this time heading to Tingri, in southern Tibet. Stop at Sakya Temple along the way - a monastery built for followers of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. Arrive in Tingri and check in to the New Tingri Everest Hotel. Here, you’re likely to meet groups of climbers about to embark on their journey of a lifetime up Mt Everest or Cho Oyu.

DAY 7: Mt Everest Base Camp

Today is the day you've been waiting for and the culmination of all your efforts. You’re heading to the base of the world’s highest mountain- Mt Everest! Along the way, stop at Rongbu Temple, the world’s highest temple, only 25 miles from the majestic mountain’s peak. After lunch, you’ll hike to base camp, in the company of your expert guides, and spend the night amongst the monolithic mountains.

DAY 8: Zhangmu

Rise early and catch the sun rise over the tallest Himalayan peaks, a sight that you won’t soon forget. After a hearty breakfast, you’ll hike back down to Rongbu, from where you’ll continue on to Zhangmu. This small town is a major trading center for Nepal and Tibet. Pick up some local goodies from either country at the market. Tonight, you’ll rest your head in a simple, clean guesthouse.

DAY 9: Kathmandu

Depart Zhagmu this morning and head to the border crossing with Nepal. Complete the necessary immigration formalities and continue on towards the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. The drive from the border to the capital is along a wonderfully scenic highway. Arrive in Kathmandu in the afternoon and take some time to see the city.

DAY 10: Kathmandu and Departure

Spend this morning touring some of the important and iconic sites of Kathmandu. Wander the Old Quarter, with its myriad tiny stalls and its colorful street life. Take time to browse for a few last minute souvenirs before being transferred to the airport for your departing flight.
