This is one of the most cultured and wilderness tours on the Tibetan Plateau, which starts once we follow Friendship Highway through some of the most amazing landscapes on Earth. We pass small Tibetan settlements, nomadic herdsmen wandering across the wide arid plains and awe-inspiring mountain peaks. Equally as fascinating is the wealth of cultural interest and we will have plenty of opportunity to explore this side of Tibet, both in Lhasa and the other towns we pass through on our journey to Kathmandu. We spend 3 nights in Lhasa, staying right in the centre of the old city. This will allow us plenty of time for acclimatization and easy access to the city’s main attractions – the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple. Leaving Lhasa in our 4 wheel drive, we’ll travel through this amazing country, staying in the best traditional hotels Tibet has to offer. In the towns of Gyantse and Shigatse we visit further monasteries and fully immerse ourselves in the Buddhist culture.
