Detailed Tibet Family Everest Base Camp adventure programs  

Day 1 Lhasa Arrival
Welcome to Lhasa, capital of Tibet. Our local Tibetan guide will meet you at Lhasa airport or railway station and then transport you to your hotel in downtown Lhasa. You can spend the rest of the day exploring the old town center, Barkhor, which is Tibet's ancient market area around the sacred Jokhang Temple. You will see many Tibetan locals making ritualistic prostrations on the square. Lhasa has an elevation of 3600 meters (12,000 feet). Tonight you will stay in a comfortable hotel, such as Shambhala Palace, House of Shambhala, Shangbala Hotel, Kyichu Hotel, Yak Hotel, or Heritage Hotel, etc. They are all within walking distance from the Barkhor square and popular among foreign tourists.

Day 2 Lhasa sightseeing: Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Streets, Tsamkhung Nunnery, Sera Monastery
After breakfast, you will visit Jokhang Temple, the holiest and most famous Buddhist temple in Tibet. Founded nearly 1400 years ago, Jokhang Temple houses a vast collection of precious Tibetan artworks and religious artefacts. You will walk around in this fascinating temple alongside pilgrims from every corner of Tibet. You will smell the yak butter candle offerings and hear the sound of pilgrims chanting mantras. Then, you will visit the quiet nunnery of Tsamkhung, where you can listen to the morning prayer during meditation time. In the afternoon, you will go to the 600-year-old Sera Monastery, one of Tibet’s largest Buddhist monasteries. Each weekday afternoon starting at 3pm, monks engage in Buddhist philosophical debates in a unique manner, which is mesmerizing to watch for every visitor. You will finish the afternoon by doing a small hike on the pilgrimage circuit near Sera Monastery.

Day 3 Lhasa sightseeing: Potala Palace, Drepung Monastery
You visit Tibet's most iconic architecture today, the Potala Palace. It is the winter residence of Dalai Lama and currently a UNESCO world heritage site. Inside Potala Palace, you will see both the public and private quarters of Dalai Lama and imagine the way of royal life here. In the afternoon, we will visit Drepung monastery, another important Gelugpa monastery. You can do another pilgrimage circuit on the hill and enjoy the good views before returning to down Lhasa.

Along the way to Gyantse, you will stop by the glaciers of Mt. Nojin Kangtsang at the Karo La Pass, which come down almost to the highway. Gyantse is a small, but modern Tibetan town, that lies at 4025 meters (13,205 feet). The drive from Lhasa to Gyantse covers 260 kms (160 miles). In Gyantse, you will stay at the 3 Star Yeti Hotel or Gyantse Hotel (both hotels are the lcoal best standard).

After lunch, you will depart Gyantse and drive to Shigatse, elevation 3840 meters (12,595 feet), visiting some farming villages along the way. In Shigatse, you will visit the large monastery complex of Tashi Lhunpo, the largest in central Tibet. You will then do the excellent hike along the pilgrimage circuit around the monastery. The distance from Gyantse to Shigatse is 90 kilometers (56 miles). Comfortable accommodation: the 4 Star standard Gesar Hotel or Tashi Choten Hotel.

Day 6 Shigatse to Gyatso La Pass and Shegar (240 kms)
From Shigatse, you will travel 235 kilometers (145 miles) to the small town of Shegar. Along the way, you will cross the 5248 meter (17,200 feet) high Gyatso La Pass. If you are feeling strong, you can do another acclimatization hike to the top of a nearby "hill" that offers an even better view of the mountains. In Shelkar, you will explore the Shelkar Monastery and do a hike up along the old ruins above the monastery. In Shelkar, you will stay at the Qomolangma Everest Hotel, the same hotel that many Everest sumitters have stayed in over the years. The elevation of Shelkar is 4325m.

You will continue through small villages until you reach Rongphu, the world’s highest monastery at 5000 meters (16,400 feet) in elevation. Rongphu offers a fantastic view of Everest.
