Tibet Overland Tour
Tibet has been a mysterious and timeless land, cut off from the rest of the world by the mighty Himalayas. Despite modernization 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.
Our overland trips give you enough time to visit 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.
We will further take you on an exotic journey along friendship highway to the famous Tashilhump Monastery at Shigatse (or Xigatse), the historic town of Gyantse, and the beautiful lake of Yamdrok Tso amidst the spectacular view of snow capped peaks including northern face of majestic Mt. Everest.
