Experience Tibet & Everest

Tibet, with its vast landscapes from the verdant forest to the arid dry moonscapes, huddled in the rain shadow behind the mass range of the northern Himalaya, certainly makes this land as mysterious as it was for centuries

It still retains the feel of the medieval period and a tinge of Shangri-la. Located with pride at an average altitude of over 3000 meter, today mankind's enthusiasm and curiosity has flung open the "Mighty doors" to experience the lifestyle, culture and landscape of this "Virgin Land". A journey of a life time, at the roof of the world, with exciting adventure on route, crossing over passes, of over 5000meter, stunning picturesque scenery of the landscape, rural villages, people, monasteries and breathe taking views of range of snow capped mountains from Mt.Everest, Cho-Oyu, Shisa-pangma to over 6000 meters peaks.

Our journey continues from Old Tingri onwards passing through traditional Tibetan villages and nomads camps with constant views of the close snow capped peaks, as we head towards Everest Base Camp via Lamna-la (Pangla-pass) at 5,100m and Rongbuk Monastery. The trek from Old Tingri to Everest BC is another highlight of this great trip, the trail from here is seldom frequented as most of the visitors takes the comfort of four wheel drive to the Rongbuk from near Shega and Old Tingri. The trek from here follows interesting rural life of the Tibetans as it was for centuries, most of the houses and villages still untouched by modern civilization even though the vehicle passes through these villages quite frequently on the road to Base Camp. However our walk continues to the highest monastery at Rongbuk through the large village of Lunja, high passes, nomads camps and valleys with the ever present vista of the snow capped mountain before reaching our highest camp at Everest Base Camp at 5,200m, where we have ample time to explore around to its glacier and magnificent view of the nearby peaks including the northern face of Mt. Everest.
