Itinerary

High Road to Tibet

Day 1 - Kathmandu

Arrive at any time. There are no planned activities for today except for a welcome meeting in the early evening, followed by an optional dinner.

Day 2 - Kathmandu

Take an orientation walk in Durbar Square before visiting the Sisterhood of Survivors Project, a grassroots organization. Meet some of the women and learn how to make Nepalese momos (dumplings) before enjoying an authentic local lunch. In the evening, enjoy free time to explore the fascinating city.

Day 3 - Kathmandu/Panauti

Depart for a community homestay in Panauti. Choose to disembark in Sanga and hike the remaining way to the village or continue via private vehicle. Explore the village then help cook an authentic Nepalese dinner. Many families in Panauti Village have come together to establish a homestay program. Depending on the location, the home offers lovely views across surrounding fields or a post from which to observe street activity. As well as getting to know a local family and exploring this lovely village, you will assist with preparing your evening meal - learning how to cook local dishes - and eat together with your host family.

Day 4 - Panauti/Lhasa

Take an afternoon flight to Lhasa and spend three days exploring Lhasa, adjusting to the altitude, and learning more about the unique culture here. With a relaxed pace to allow for the effects of altitude, explore this fantastic city on 'the roof of the world' over three days. Don't miss one of the evening debating sessions with the monks.

Day 5 - Lhasa

Enjoy an orientation walk around Barkhor Square and guided tour of the Jokhang Temple. In the afternoon explore Sera Monastery.

Day 6 - Lhasa

Explore the grounds of Potala Palace where the Dalai Lamas would meditate. Later, visit the Dalai Lama's Summer Palace, Norbulingka.

Day 7 - Lhasa/Gyantse

Drive to Gyantse along beautiful Yamdrok Tso. The drive to Gyantse is a spectacular one, crossing three passes over 5000m (16404ft) and skirting the shores of the beautiful turquoise lake, Yamdrok Tso. Great for photography, prepare to stop at Khambala Pass, Karo La Pass, and Yamdrok Tso to take in the stunning views.

Day 8 - Gyantse/Xegar

In the morning, visit Pelkor Chode Monastery and Gyantse Kumbum. After breakfast, depart for Xȇgar. On the way, make a stop in Sakya and explore the Sakya Monastery.

Day 9 - Xegar/Rongpu Si

Visit Rongbuk, the highest monastery in the world. Hike to Everest Base Camp for a closer view of this magnificent mountain. Take an exhilarating drive to reach Rongbuk – 5000m (16404ft) and a mere 7km (4.4mi) below Everest Base Camp. The view from here is utterly spectacular. Rongbuk is the highest monastery in the world and its guesthouse offers very basic accommodation, but the views that surround it more than compensate. Lie in bed and watch the moonlight illuminate the mountain. If you're keen and the altitude hasn't gotten to you, make the 7km (4.4mi) hike to Base Camp for a closer view this magnificent mountain. For the rest of the group, take the bus!

Day 10 - Rongpu Si/Shigatse

Travel from Rongbuk Si to Shigatse.

Day 11 - Shigatse

Enjoy a visit to the Tashilunpo Monastery and opt to complete the surrounding kora. In the afternoon, enjoy free time visiting the local market or exploring the scenic city. Lined with prayer wheels, follow the pilgrims on their kora around Tashilunpo Monastery. This sacred walk provides stunning views of the monastery and town below.

Day 12 - Shigatse/Lhasa

Travel back to Lhasa.

Day 13 - Lhasa/Kathmandu

Fly back to Kathmandu and enjoy a final evening in the city.

Day 14 - Kathmandu

Depart any time.
