Tibet lies in the North of Nepal, has been a mysterious land of lakes and rivers, mighty snow peaks, and beautiful and ancient monasteries - with its spiritual air, an unearthly mystical land of Buddhist culture and philosophy. Tibet emerged in the 7th century as a unified empire, but it soon divided into a variety of territories. The atmosphere is severely dry nine months of the year, and average annual snowfall is only 18 inches, due to the rain shadow effect. Western passes receive small amounts of fresh snow each year but remain traversable all year round. Low temperatures are prevalent throughout these western regions, where bleak desolation is unrelieved by any vegetation beyond the size of low bushes, and where wind sweeps unchecked across vast expanses of arid plain. The Indian monsoon exerts some influence on eastern Tibet. Northern Tibet is subject to high temperatures in the summer and intense cold in the winter. Our tour takes you to visit Dalai Lama's Potala and Norbulingka and visit Barkhor Market in Lhasa which covers popular monastery and stupas as well as markets.

By the time we introduce our trekking guide and Sherpa. Evening, if you arrive on time we host Nepalese typical dinner at one of the most popular local restaurant with cultural music and ethnic dance which represents different part of the country. If you arrive late evening we will do it the next day. Stay overnight in Kathmandu.

Today after breakfast, proceed for our city tour to visit Bouddha stupa, Pashupatinath temple, Swyambhunath Stupa (Monkey temple), Kathmandu Durbar square include which are the main tourists interested things. After finished city tour we meet again to check your clothings, Visa, Permits and Tickets which required for Tibet tour. At the mean time you can discuss with us regarding your adventure trip. Stay overnight in Kathmandu.

Day 3: Fly to Lhasa

Fly to Lhasa early morning which is Trans Himalaya flight has very good views of the Himalaya, including Mt.Everest, Mt.Makalu, Mt.Kanchenjunga and many more peaks. Up on arrival at Lhasa airport, you will get picked up and drive to Lhasa for overnight.
 

Day 4: Explore day

We spend some days in Lhasa for sightseeing and acclimatization purpose. While we acclimatize with the high altitude, we also visit important landmarks in Lhasa.  Our tour begins with a visit to Sera Monastery. Equally adventurous and exciting tempo builds up while touring Norbulingka, the summer palace of the Dalai Lama. Jokhang Temple is another important sacred site which unravels more deep seated mysteries of Tibetan Buddhism. Visit to Barkhor Markets can be quite a change from other visits as we roam around the city.
 

Day 5: Explore day

Lhasa life certainly offers glimpses into one of the most preserved ancient cultural heritages. Like the previous day, you experience invaluable insights during your visits to Potala Palace and Drepung Monastery. This 17th century Potala Palace offers an awesome view of entire city and also has private quarters of the Dalai Lama, numerous grand state rooms and chapels. Ancient history has it that Drepung Monastery which was built in 14th century used to shelter around 10,000 monks but as now there has been quite a declination resulting in only few hundreds. Tibetans' respect and belief are immensely knotted with this monastery.

Climate and Weather
Climate in Tibet is totally different than climate in Nepal. As Tibet is a rain shadow part of the Himalayas, the Tibetan climate is not as harsh as many people imagine it to be. The best time to travel to Tibet is from March to the beginning of November, but among them, August and September are the most recommended. But  you only stay in Lhasa so you can go there any time of the year. Sun radiation is extremely strong in Tibet. The sunlight in Lhasa is so intense that the city is called Sunlight City. The thin air can neither block off nor retain heat so that the temperature extremes can be met in daytime and the same night respectively in Tibet.

For making your Chinese visa/Tibet visa; Chinese embassy require your original passport to obtain the Chinese visa which we do upon on your arrival in Kathmandu and even if you have already obtained Chinese visa from your homeland county this visa doesn't work travelling to Tibet from Nepal side so we have to get you a new Tibet/china visa and your previously existing visa will be cancelled. Recently, Chinese embassy in Kathmandu is providing visa on Monday, Wednesday and Friday so you should arrive at least two days in prior to Kathmandu before departing to Tibet tour.

Your Tibet traveling permit and your Chinese visa will be valid for approx of 2 weeks to 21 days and within that timeframe, you have to exit from this country. Please do write us if you traveling to mainland to china so you would required longer visa.
