Tibet Tour with Everest Base Camp

8
Days
Trip Grade
Adventure from $2150.00

This Tibet tour is an utterly amazing week of high altitude overland travel! The 900km journey between Kathmandu and Lhasa is rightly considered to be an incredible Trans-Himalayan adventure - a more dramatic journey between such startlingly contrasting cultures and climes is impossible to imagine.

The rugged living and travelling conditions en-route will discourage all but truly adventurous - so this trek is definitely for YOU! Those considering this short but epic journey will need to know that meals are seldom better than basic, accommodation and sanitation are humble at best, and that road conditions and the five great mountain passes make for slow and jolting progress. Intrepid travel at its best.
