Lhasa, capital city of Tibet
This budget Everest Base Camp tour blends Tibet culture and history with some of Earth’s most spectacular scenery! After becoming acclimatized to the altitude and oriented with Tibetan culture, travel groups will head for Mt. Everest Base Camp. The drive to base camp takes three days, making several stops. First at Lake Yamdrok, a vast mountain lake that shines a deep blue on sunny days, second in Gyantse to explore Pelkhor Monastery and Kumbum Pagoda, and then an overnight stop in Shigatse where travelers can visit a Tibetan market and explore the sprawling Tashilhunpo Monastery. Before we embark on our journey into the Himalayan region, we will drive from Shigatse to Shegar Town, on the way we will visit Sakya Monastery. Then we are going to explore the top attraction-Everest Base camp. After seeing the gorgeous golden face of the sun as it reflects off of Mount Everest, we will drive to Nepal by descending steeply into the valley of Mutsang Tsangpo.
