NEW! Tibet: Beyond Everest Base Camp

Tibetan Lands

Imagine flying over the highest of the Himalayas and landing in Lhasa – the heart and soul of Tibet! Here you will pray with the pilgrims before the holy Jokhang Temple, explore the Potala and the Norbulinkha, watch the monks debating at Sera, and visit the new Museum of Tibetan Culture. Heading out, you will see the magnificent paintings of Gyantse’s Kumbum and walk the pilgrim kora in Shigatse. Then the trek begins – a five-day trek to Everest Base Camp over 17,000’ Lamna La, past Zommug (the highest permanent settlement in the Everest region) and down to Dza Rongphu Monastery beside Everest Base Camp. From here, you can continue up onto the glacier, climbing all the way to Advance Base Camp at 20,800 feet. NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A TECHNICAL TRIP AND YOU DO NOT NEED CRAMPONS.

Your trip ends with a spectacular descent from the Tibetan Plateau down into the Kathmandu Valley. If you have dreamed of seeing Everest and Base Camp, this trip is for you!
