Getting to the surroundings of Mt Everest is a dream come true for anyone who enjoys a thrilling and challenging adventure. Thousands of tourists from all over the world visit Nepal each year to trek to Everest Base Camp. The Everest base camp from Tibet is another adventure to add to the list, a chance to experience nature at its most beautiful.
A view of the world's most majestic peaks including Mt Kanchenjunga, Mt Everest, Mt Makalu, and many others is complimented with views of beautiful lakes and glaciers located just beneath Mt Everest's huge north face. Aside from the primary attraction of Everest Base Camp, you can tour Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse, and Rongbuk, four of Tibet's most beautiful cities and towns.
The Everest Base Camp Tour from Tibet is a nine day tour that starts from Kathmandu and concludes in Lhasa, including a visit to the Everest Base Camp. A flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa is the first step of the journey. Attractions to visit include the Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Street. In Tibet, some of the world's largest Buddhist monasteries such as Sera, Drepung and Tashilungpo were established centuries ago and are still beautifully preserved. A trip to Lhasa would be incomplete without visiting the Potala Palace, the Dalai Lama's former residence. The journey to Gyantse, which passes over Khamba La Pass and Yamdrok Lake on its way to the Gyantse Kumbum monastery, is also equally captivating. Shigatse is noted for its Tashilhumpo Monastery (3900m), from there we will travel to Shegar, Rongbuk and finally to Everest Base Camp.
The Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour showcases art, architecture and handicrafts at the city's monasteries. It transports us back in time and allows us to experience the peace that Buddhist culture promotes. The Lhasa River, a tributary of the Yarlung Zangpo (Brahmaputra) River, also runs through the city's southern section. This river, known to native Tibetans as the "merry blue waves," flows for 315 kilometers through the Nyainqêntanglha Mountains' snow-covered peaks and gorges before emptying into the Yarlung Zangpo River near Qüxü. This natural topography covers a large area with stunning scenery.
The Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour takes you to these notable locations and allows you to experience them up close. You will be exposed to many local people and will get the opportunity to fully see Tibet's gorgeous sights, historical and cultural locations.
