Details For Small Group Expedition for 7 Days Mt. Everest Tour, Lhasa, Tibet Sight-Seeing Tours - RealAdventures

Activity/Tour


This tour includes all of the best sights, sounds, and smells Tibet has to offer. You could wind your way up through the Potala, join the shuffling, murmuring pilgrims around the shrines of the Jokhang, let yourself be swept around the Barkhor, and be enveloped in the vast expanses of the Tibetan landscape. For centuries, the impassable routes and political upheaval have made Tibet and Everest one of the last great unexplored territories in the world, but this expedition could offer you a chance to see the great Mt. Everest, one of earth’s most remote corners. To view the sunrise and sunset there, you can do nothing but feel marvel for the nature’s masterpiece.

Day 1 Arrive in Lhasa (alt. 3600m)
Welcome to the “Roof of the World.” On your arrival to Tibet, we will meet you at the airport or train station and transfer you to the hotel . Plan on taking it slow the rest of today, so you can adjust to the altitude. Remember to drink plenty of water and get plenty of sleep for the long journey ahead.

Day 2 Tour of Lhasa [B]
This morning you’ll wind your way up through the stunning, awe-inspiring Potala Palace. Built in 637 AD by Songtsen Gampo, it was the former winter residence for the Dalai Lamas and is truly a splendor of Eastern architecture. Next, visit the Jokhang Temple, the center of Tibetan Buddhism, also built in the 7th century on the legendary pond of “Wothang.” Later after lunch, witness the famous debate sessions by the monks at Sera Monastery. And finish the day by taking a Kora around the Barkhor. Test your bartering skills with the locals in this push-and-shove economy.

Day 3 Drive to Shigatse via Gyantse [B]
In the morning you’ll start the drive to Shigatse, via Gyantse on the Southern Friendship Highway. Crossing over the summit of Kamba La (4794 m), you’ll see the tranquil turquoise waters of Lake Yamdrok below; one of the three holiest lakes in Tibet. Far in the distance you’ll spot the towering massif Mt. Nojin Kangtsang (7191 m), and the staggering Karo-la Glacier (5045 m). Afterwards, you’ll drive to Shigatse, and overnight there.

Day 4 Tashilumpu Monastery & Drive to Mt. Everest [B]
This morning you’ll have a chance to visit Tashilumpu Monastery, the home of the Panchen Lama, which is essentially a walled town with cobbled and twisting lanes that revolve around a magnificent monastery. Then be driven to Rongbuk Monastery (optional), the highest monastery in the world. This evening you’ll have the intoxicating view of Mt. Everest. Overnight in local guesthouse or tent.

Day 5 Mt. Everest Base Camp & back to Shigatse [B]
Wake this morning below the stunning north face of Mt. Everest, (8848) the tallest mountain on earth. After breakfast, drive the remaining 8 km to visit Everest Base Camp. Then, drive back to Shigatse, and be wrapped again in the endless vistas of the Tibetan plateau.

Day 6 Back to Lhasa [B]
You’ll drive back to Lhasa, but don’t worry, you’ll take a slightly different route this morning back to Lhasa. So, sit back and enjoy another full day of breathless mountains under an endless Himalayan sky.

Day 7 Lhasa & Return Home [B]
Free time in the morning for you to wander around Lhasa. Take a last, memorable look at the Potala Palace before being transported to the airport at 12:00 p.m.
