An epic journey from Beijing Lhasa Kathmandu tour offers a magic blend of high adventure and exotic culture. An exploration of the ancient palaces, monasteries, and temples, a ride on the world's highest train, a journey to the top of the world, the Everest Base camp, Beijing Lhasa Kathmandu tour offers you an experience of a lifetime. This tour takes you on a whirlwind tour to three oriental cities: Beijing, Lhasa, and Kathmandu. Exploring these three cities will give you an insight into three ancient cultures, Chinese, Tibetan, and Nepalese. But the major highlight of this trip is the journey aboard the Qinghai-Tibet railway, the world's highest railway. Another highlight of this trip is the hike to the Everest Base Camp.

Beijing Lhasa Kathmandu tour starts in Beijing, a city in Northern China. Beijing, an ancient capital and a bustling modern metropolis is a city of amazing contrasts. In Beijing some incredible historical sites await you. On a guided tour, you can explore the Forbidden City, the Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall of China and the Temple of Heaven.

Leaving Beijing you embark on a train journey to Lhasa, aboard the world's highest railway, the Qinghai-Tibet railway. As the train trundles along the high Tibetan plateau, picturesque scenes of Tibetan countryside whiz by. Owing to Tibet's high altitude the train has been equipped with oxygen-supplying equipment. Oxygen masks are available for those who are prone to altitude sickness.

In the historical city of Lhasa, you will be taken on a guided tour to all the city's major attractions: Potala Palace, Sera monastery, Drepung monastery, Norbulinkha palace, etc... Excursions to important Tibetan cities of Shigatse, Gyantse, and Shegar are also included in your itinerary. On reaching the Rongbuk monastery, you get to view the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest. As you leave Zhangmu and cross the Friendship Bridge you enter Nepal. There is a refreshing change in scenery, as verdant greenery replaces the dry and arid Tibetan landscapes. In Kathmandu, you will get to explore the three medieval cities: Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur.
