Our second day is a day for you to rest and enjoy Nyalam. We must properly acclimatize before we move on. You can also explore the small temple Milaripa Cave nearby this small town.
Today is another amazing driving day as we view the sharp contrast of lush lower hills to the barren landscape of the Tibetan Plateau. Along the way we will cross Lalung La pass, where views of Everest and much of the Himalayan range are first seen. Tonight we will stay in the small town of Tingri.
Our trekking adventure begins today as we make our way through the Tingri plain. Throughout the day we can visit a small gompa in Chholun. Tonight will be spent in a comfortable campsite in Lunthang. This bleak region is home only to herders and barley harvesters.
The challenging trekking really starts today as we ascend into the mountains. Much uphill walking is done as we climb towards the top of Lamna La. Camp will be made right near the top of this pass.
In the morning we descend steeply into lush vegetation. The only other people we will encounter are yak herders and their families. Camp will be made in the small village of Zommug. Truly amazing views can be seen as the sun sets in this barren town.
On our last day of trekking we will wind our way to the end destination of Rongbuk Everest Base Camp. Along the way we can also visit the Dza Rongbuk monastery and gompas. They are truly ancient sites, but nothing compared to our night camping at Everest Base Camp.
Our eighth day will be spent enjoying the barren yet awe-inspiring surroundings of the Everest Base Camp. It is a life changing experience to stare up into the world’s largest mountain.
As we leave the wondrous views of Everest behind, we drive a short distance to Shegar. Along the way we cross the Pang La pass, with more views of the Himalayas. Tonight will be spent in the comfortable Hotel Quomolongma.

Not a minute is wasted as we have a full morning of exploring the local markets and Tashilungpo Monastery. It is very intriguing to see how ancient Tibetan culture compares to the modern day culture we will experience. There are endless amounts of sights, both modern and ancient, to see around this city. A short drive will take us to the city of Gyantse. We will be given the opportunity of experiencing more wondrous Tibetan culture as we see the Gyantse Dzong and Kumbum. Expansive views of the valley can be seen from the ancient Dzong fort. The Kumbum is much more than a stupa, as numerous Tibetan murals and small chapel houses surround it. Even if you are no art connoisseur these ancient murals and architecture will amaze you. Another comfortable night will be spent in a hotel in Gyantse
Today is an amazing day of driving as we head towards Lhasa. Numerous passes, such as Khambo La and Kharo La, provide wondrous views of the Himalayan range.

The drive is no daunting task as we pass through many more beautiful Tibetan valleys and quiet villages along the way. Our final destination is a first rate hotel in Lhasa.
Today we will take an easy visit to Jokhang Temple. This temple is the most revered shrine in all of Tibet and is constantly bustling with devout worshippers. We will also be given the opportunity to shop in Barkor, the crowded central market of Lhasa.

This well preserved monastery is located just a few miles North of Lhasa and is home to several hundred monks. Its famous debating activities are happening 3-4pm quite regularly every day, so remind our guide not to miss it.
A trip to Tibet would not be complete without experiencing the vital Potala Palace. This palace is Lhasa’s cardinal landmark and is a wonder of Eastern architecture. Your first site of this massive structure will be a magical moment remembered for years to come. It has been a palace since the fifth or sixth century and was once home to the Dalai Lama. This truly amazing day will ended with a visit to the Drepung Monastery. Once the world’s largest monastery, housing 10,000 monks, Drepung monastery lies hidden in rocky ridges just beyond the city. Surprisingly much of the building was left untouched throughout so many hundreds of years.
