Tibet Highland Expedition

Nepal to Lhasa Mount Everest Tour

In this tour you visit various places in Nepal, including Kathmandu, Pokhara, the ancient Newar city of Bhaktapur, jungles, and of course, the stunning ranges of the Himalaya. There are options for longer tours in Nepal, and tours that also extend into Tibet.

Draped along the spine of the Himalaya, Nepal is a land of sublime scenery, time-worn temples, and some of the best hiking trails on earth. It's a poor country, but it is rich in scenic splendour and cultural treasures. The kingdom has long exerted a pull on the Western imagination.
It's the kind of country that lingers in your dreams long after you leave it. This is why so many travellers are drawn back to Nepal, armed the second time round with a greater appreciation of its natural and cultural complexity, a stout pair of walking boots and a desire for sculpted calf muscles.

NOTE:
Many longer itineraries available in around Nepal and from Nepal to Holy Mount Kailash,East  and Northeast Tibet (Kham and Amdo),also this trip possible to extend to China.
