Tibet Tour EBC


This tour literally combines the best of both worlds – the cultural splendors of the city of Lhasa are supplemented by a jeep trip to the base of the highest mountain on earth! Additionally you will have an opportunity to visit the historic monastic town of Gyantse, Yandruk Tso – the beautiful turquoise lake – and Shigatse, Tibet’s second largest (and historically significant) city.

The excursion starts in Kathmandu with a four hour scenic drive to Kodari (the border town of Nepal) – the group then crosses the Friendship Bridge and meets the Tibetan guide and vehicle. The Everest Base Camp tour departs from Kathmandu regularly between April and October. At other times, the operation of the tour depends on the weather – Tibet has a harsh climate in winter and the high passes can become blocked with deep snow.

Our company arranges the Tibet group visa and all your necessary travel documents in advance – all you have to do is choose your departure date and send a photocopy of your passport via fax or mail. It’s hassle free!  We operate this tour either for individuals or for small groups.
