This is our classic Tibetan journey - a rugged crossing of the Tibetan Plateau linking the fabled city of Lhasa with Kathmandu. In the company of our Tibetan speaking guides we include the cultural highlights of Lhasa including the Potala Palace, the Jokhang temple, the Norbulingka plus the Drepung and Sera monasteries, with visits to Gyantse (the Kumbum shorten) and Shigatse (the Tashilhunpo). A distinct highlight of the journey is our diversion to the famous Rongphu Valley to see Mount Everest's north face from the famous historic 1922 Base Camp - an experience shared by only a handful of dedicated travelers each year on this remarkable journey through a once forbidden land.
