Kathmandu Lhasa Overland Tour | Lhasa Kathmandu Tour -Royal Mountain Travel - Nepal

Kathmandu – Lhasa Overland Tour – 17 days



Traverse the world’s highest mountain range

One of the finest ways to approach Tibet is the traditional way, by road. The road twists and turns as it climbs the narrow gorge cut by the Bhoti Kosi River; waterfalls and steaming jungle give way to the harsh, barren beauty of the Tibetan Plateau. Traveling slowly, as we acclimatize to the thinner air, towards the holy city of Lhasa – a city of marvels – history and art, commerce and religion meld into an unforgettable experience. The exquisite turquoise lake, snow-capped peaks, glaciers, fields of rape and barley, colorful temples and imposing forts… The return journey via Qomolangma (Everest) base camp is far from a repeat of the inward one.


  • Vibrant, colorful, chaotic city of Kathmandu
