Extraordinary tour, glimpse of Chinese and Tibetan cultural innovations : Travel Bejing to Kathmandu !
Whilst not the only man-made object visible from space, the Great Wall of China is undoubtedly one of the wonders of the world. Tiananmen, the Gate of Heavenly Peace shields the elaborate grandeur of the Forbidden City from the vast expanse of the great square.
Capital of Chinese empires for over 2000 years, Xi’an is a city of ancient treasures. Most magnificent amongst them, are the celebrated Terracotta Warriors. Xi’an is also famous for its intricately crafted dumplings – a banquet dinner in itself – and your fortune may be predicted by the mini dumplings in the final dish.
In the heart of central Tibet the great temples, monasteries, forts and palaces of Lhasa, Gyantse, Shigatse and Sakya are powerful testaments to a long and volatile history and to the spiritual and artistic traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
Skirt the turquoise lake of Yamdrok Tso, cross mountain passes topped by prayer flags, pass glaciers, barren hillsides and fertile valleys. Stunning views of Qomolangma (Mount Everest) and a trip up to Everest Base Camp are a fitting finale to this incredible journey before you leave the Tibetan Plateau behind, plunging abruptly into a lush green world as we descend almost 2000 meters in just 30kms to the border town of Zhangmu. The historic cities of the Kathmandu Valley reveal a vibrant world of color and life. Bejing Kathmandu tour can really add a great travelling experience to your bucket !
