Day01 – 02. Our Tibetan travel guide and driver will meet you upon your arrival at the airport or Lhasa railway station and it is a short drive to the holy Lhasa city along the Lhasa river within a valley enclosed by barren mountains, far before reaching to the city you will have the first glimpse of tremendous Potala Palace appearing out from the rest of the city by perching on the red hill. Then check in the hotel which is located in the old part of the town and which is also known as Tibetan area that centered by mystical Jokhang temple and the bustling Barkhor street. In the following couple of days we have thoughtfully arranged few but worthy visit to some world heritages and sites of breathing Tibetan Buddhists along acclimation and alleviating Jet-lag, you have plenty of time to walk shoulder to shoulder with devoted local pilgrims in the bustling Barkhor street. These two days are flexible and easy to do on your own exploration around the town and hang around the Barkhor Street during your leisure. In addition we do arrange special experiences of short visit to typical Tibetan village family or receive rare scared blessings from high lamas with local pilgrims per client’s interest.
Day03– 04. After two days acclimation, you are dare to drive over the Gampa la pass and Karo la pass to Gyantse and Shigatse in the western Tibetan plateau, along the upstream of the Brahmaputra river we climb up the Gampa la (4900m) through numbers of switch-backs, from the pass you will amaze by the breathtaking view of the holy Lake Yamdrok and snowcapped Mt.Nyenchen Kangsar in the background, then further to Gyantse and Shigatse via bloomy glaciers and scattered villages. Both Gyantse and Shigatse are well known for its historical and religious value since from ancient time, Gyantse is known as hero’s town as the British troops defeated by Gyantse guerrilla in 1904, moreover, these regions has slightly different culture and tradition than in Lhasa, there we will Gyantse Kumbum stupa and Tashilhunpo monastery.
Day05-06 To prevent against the altitude sickness, we gradually ascend into the mountainous Himalayan terrain by traversing few remarkable passes, you will have the first panorama of the Himalayans from the ridge of Gyatso la pass (5400m), numbers of snowcapped peaks appearing out from the rest like warriors among the soldiers, through the barren mountains but astonishing landscapes and photogenic villages within the hilly valleys we approach to the world highest peak-Mt. Everest with altitude of 8844.4m, the picturesque view of the Young Everest appears right in front of you within the Rongbuk valley, spending a night at the foot of the world tallest mountain, a short hike for 6 km from the tent guesthouse community to the EBC marker is challenging but memorable too, herds of wild goats are disguised in the rocky mountains, EBC is the most popular campsite for mountaineers, usually in March and April the area is blooming with different colors of mountaineering camps from all over the world. Our farewell to the mighty peak responded by its striking view in golden color under the morning sunshine, then we retrace the road back to Lhasa.
