Tibet may not be the easiest place in the world to reach but it is well worth the effort. Give us two weeks of your time and you’ll be rewarded with an unforgettable experience to an extraordinary, mystical region.Travelling in a loop from the capital, Lhasa, our Tibetan Discovery itinerary journeys through the country’s spectacular scenery, taking in the provincial towns of Gyantse and Shigatse.

Over the course of ten days you’ll visit Tibet’s significant religious and historical sites, including the imposing Potala Palace, the sacred Jokhang Temple and the immense Drepung Monastery. And, of course, no trip to Tibet would be complete without a stop at Everest Base Camp for unbeatable views of the world’s highest peak.

We’ve combined Tibet with a stopover in Kathmandu: an easy and popular country combo. However, this is not set in stone and it’s also possible to€cess Tibet via mainland China. Your Destination Specialist can provide more information.
