Nepal Tibet Tours & Lhasa Kathmandu Tours
Nepal shares a border with Tibet, China in the North. Visiting both Nepal and Tibet in the same trip is very popular among travelers because of the proximity of the two destinations. Travel between Nepal and Tibet by overland journey is now possible through the Gyirong Pass, which was reconstructed and reopened at the end of 2017 (previously closed due to damages from the 2015 Nepal earthquake.)
The Overland Tour from Lhasa to Kathmandu is one of the most popular routes. It is an unforgettable experience that will start in Lhasa with the highlights of Lhasa, including Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street, Drepung Monastery, and Sera Monastery. From Lhasa the drive leads to more historical and natural sites of Tibet, including beautiful Yamdrok Lake, Karola Glacier, Pelkor Chode Monastery, and Tashilhunpo Monastery in Shigatse. The best itinerary includes a visit to Mount Everest and Rongbuk Monastery.
The geography of Nepal is noticeably diverse with forested hill ranges, open fields, wide open valleys, and the Himalayas including Mount Everest. Interesting Fact: The international border between Nepal and China (Tibet Autonomous Region) runs through the summit of Mount Everest.
Nepal has a multi-ethnic culture, with influences from both India and Tibet, which is beautifully expressed in its music, dance, traditions, religions, and festivals.
