This road trip will blow your mind away. After arrival in Kathmandu to a warm reception, we conduct a thorough briefing on the trip and high altitude travel. With an introduction to the rich cultural heritage of the valley on the second day, we set off on the third day for an eight day trip into the high plateau of Tibet.

During the entire trip, you never come below 3500m as you drive across three 5000m+ passes to come to Lhasa. Along the way, we stop over in the different monasteries where the guides will explain the basics of Buddhism.

We also visit the Yamdrok Tso, one of the most beautiful turquoise lakes in the world, just south of Lhasa.

After five days on the road, we enter the bustling city of Lhasa and continue our tours to Jokhang Monastery, Potala Palace, Norbulinka Palace and the Sera Monastery.

In the morning of the eight day, we drive to the airport for a flight back to Kathmandu, full of wonderful memories
