The above price is based on a group of 4 people travelling in recent seasons. It includes the accommodation at a 3-star hotel in Lhasa and Shigatse, one private car, driver and local English-speaking tour guide, etc.

It can be customized as you wish and organized for any group size. Please let us know how many people there will be in your group and your travel time, we'll send the quote for you accordingly.

It is an overland tour from Lhasa to the Tibet-Nepal border with an adventure trip to the Mt. Everest Base Camp. With this journey, you’ll have the life-long experience with the highest mountain in the world, the chance to enjoy the panoramic view of the Hiamayan range's northern and southern faces, and an easy connection to your tours to Nepal and Bhutan.

Unlike the regular tours to Mt. Everest Base Camp, this trip will lead you to the Tibet-Nepal border after exploration at the Mt. Everest Base Camp. It offers a chance to enjoy the mild and humid subtropical scenery of the southern face of the Himalayan range, which is completely different from that of the Himalaya northen face full of snow mountains.
