Tibet Tour

Tibet tour is an utterly amazing week of high altitude overland travel. The 900 Km. Journey between Kathmandu and Lhasa is rightly considered to be an incredible Trans-Himalayan adventure - a more dramatic journey between such startlingly contrasting cultures and climes impossible to imagine.

But the rugged living and travelling conditions en-route will discourage all but truly adventurous. Those considering this short but epic journey will need to know that meals are seldom better than basic, accommodation and sanitation are humble at best, and that road condition and the five great mountain passes make for slow and jolting Land-cursor progress. However, no traveler has yet failed to find that the rewards of this incredible journey far outweigh any of its tiresome privations.
