Adventure Through Asia
Explore the wonders of Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan all in one amazing adventure. In Tibet, wander Lhasa and Everest Base Camp. Descending down to Nepal, explore the wonders of the Kathmandu Valley. When touring Bhutan, you climb the Tiger’s Nest, visit dzongs and nunneries and meet the people. Whether you’re looking to visit monasteries or temples, mountains or valleys, museums or factories, Himalayan High has it all. **Note that the Chinese sometimes close the border between Tibet and Nepal unpredictably. In that case, you will drive back to Lhasa (Option B) and fly on to Kathmandu.
