We organize a Tibet Lhasa overland tour 8 days from our base in Lhasa or Kathmandu. Overland from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp is an adventure 08 days overland journey in Tibet that starts and ends in Lhasa with a visit to the stunning Everest base camp.

This tour covers the beautiful Tibetan cities and towns of Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse, Tingri, and Rongbuk. While doing the tour, we visit popular landmarks like Dalai Lama’s Potala and Norbulingka Palaces, the Tibet Museum, Barkhor Bazaar, and Gyantse Dzong.

We also cross several passes and visit the beautiful YamdrokTso Lake on our trip. Outstanding Tibetan monasteries like Sera, Drepung, Jokhang Temple, Khumbum Stupa, Phalkot, Tashilhunpho monastery, Sakya, and Rongbuk Base Camp are marvelous sites for us to explore.  

Participants of the trip must keep in mind that this is an adventure journey that takes you into one of the remotest corners of the Tibetan plateau where many unexpected and unpleasant events may contribute to the need for a change in the itinerary. Depending on the prevailing situation, the itinerary can be modified to some extent after consulting with your guide. However, the date of the tour conclusion should always coincide with the original plan.
