Details of Tibet Travel & Tibet Trekking, Kathmandu, Tibet Sight-Seeing Tours Details for Tibet Travel & Tibet Trekking

Activity/Tour


For centuries Tibet has been a mysterious and timeless land, cut off from the rest of the world by the mighty Himalayas. Despite modernisation it has retained the beauties of its past, such as the fascinating Gompas, ancient markets, ever-smiling and fun-loving Tibetans and its amazing turquoise lakes.

We specialise in adventure holidays in Tibet and our trips range from four-day culture tours to four-week mountaineering expeditions – so if you are looking for adventure, you will definitely find it with us!

Most of our treks start or end with visit to Lhasa, which has long been known as the Forbidden City. The mighty Potala Palace, Drepung Monastery, Barkhor market and the holy Jokhang Temple are just a few of the fascinating sights we will take you to.

Our overland trips give you enough time to visit the famous Tashilhump Monastery at Shigatse, the historic town of Gyantse, the old Bon Po Monastery at Sakya and the beautiful lake of Yamdrok Tso.

Treks to Mt. Everest base camp and Shishapangma will certainly be the highlight of your trip. From Everest Base Camp you can enjoy an uninhibited view of the beckoning north face of the top of the world as well as of the amazing Rongbuk Glacier. A visit to the Rongbuk monastery is an essential part of any trip to this area.

Our trip to Mt. Kailash gives you the unforgettable opportunity to circumvent the holy mountain, just to be completed by a visit to the serene Lake Manasarovar.

In Tsethang and Yarlung, the cradle of Tibetan civilisation, you will visit ancient Tibetan monasteries and the tomb of the famous Tibetan king, Songsten Gampo. This area is extremely rich in cultural interest. It is also the home of the world's largest canyon, on the Yarlung Tsang Po River, which later becomes the Brahmaputra, flowing through India and Bangladesh.

Visa & Entry Procedure
These are subject to change and depend on whether you join the trip in Kathmandu or China. If you are joining the trip in Kathmandu you will need a multiple entry visa for Nepal which can be obtained either from your nearest Nepalese consulate or on arrival in Nepal.

For Tibet, we organize a group visa, and in order to do this we will need a copy of your passport at least 20 days prior to the commencement of your trip, followed by your actual passport one day before the visa issuing days. If you are entering via mainland China you have to obtain Chinese visa from you home country. Visa regulation in Tibet keep changing please ask us for latest Tibet visa information

Guide & Accommodation Natchang Door
Throughout your time in Tibet you will be accompanied by a knowledgeable Tibetan guide who will not only act as an interpreter but will also provide a valuable insight into the Tibetan way of life.

In Lhasa, accommodation will be at Dhood Gu or similar standard hotel. It is renowned for its hospitality and warm Tibetan atmosphere and is perfectly situated in the centre of town just a few minutes walk from the Jokhang Temple and Barkor. Elsewhere along the route, accommodation will be in the best available hotels. Meals will either be in the hotel or at a restaurant of your choice (where available). Whilst on the road, lunch will be at one of the many Chinese tea shops along the way which generally serve a variety of noodle and vegetable dishes and meat where available.

Best Time to Visit Tibet Lhakpa Ri South
Despite the high altitude of the Tibetan Plateau, the daytime temperatures are actually quite mild. Between April and November the average temperature ranges form 15-25 degrees Celsius and the skies are generally clear and blue. From July to August though there can be the odd shower during the day. The nights, however, can be very cold and temperatures can drop below 0 degrees Celsius. During the day a light shirt or jumper and lightweight pants will be suitable, but a warm fleece or down jacket is recommended for the evenings.

The best time of year for overland tours in Tibet is from April to November and for treks and Mt. Kailash tour from April to the beginning of October.

About Trekking in Tibet Tibet Trek
Our all treks and Mt. Kailash tours are fully catered by our qualified and experienced crew from Nepal and a professional English speaking Tibetan guide. Loads are usually carried by Yaks.

A typical day begins with a hot cup of tea brought to the tent at about 6 am, followed by a bowl of hot water for washing. After packing our bags and having a good breakfast, we set off on the morning's walk. All you need to carry is a small daypack containing a water bottle, camera, sun cream, hat, rain-jacket and a warm jumper, just in case. The porters or yaks will carry everything else for you. After walking for 3-4 hours we stop for lunch at around midday. The afternoon's walk is generally shorter and we arrive at camp in time for a nice cup of tea. The remainder of the afternoon can be spent exploring the nearby villages, doing a bit of washing or simply relaxing with a good book. Dinner is usually served between 6 and 7pm and after dinner, the evening is often spent playing cards or talking with the crew – and sometimes there will even be some singing and dancing before heading off to the tent for a well-earned sleep.
Food on Trek Tashilhunpo Art
Apart from when you are staying in hotels, your cook will provide 3 tasty, plentiful and nutritious meals daily with a variety of local and Western dishes. To start the day, breakfast consists of a choice of porridge, muesli and cereal followed by omelet, fried or scrambled eggs with chapattis or bread.

Lunch is generally a selection of salad, cooked vegetable dishes, pasta and traditional breads. After a long day on the trail, dinner is a hearty 3-course meal - soup, followed by a variety of vegetable, meat, rice and pasta dishes and completed with a simple dessert.

Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also provided at all meals. We use as much fresh produce as possible and our cooks and kitchen crew maintain exceptional standards of cleanliness and food preparation hygiene. Special dietary requirements can always be catered for.
