The one-hour long Trans-Himalayan flight between Kathmandu and Lhasa is one of the memorable flights in the world that offers the breathtaking view of the world's highest Mount Everest (8,848m/29,028ft) and other great Himalayan range. The holy city Lhasa (3,600m/11,811ft) is the capital of Tibet. In Lhasa, there are plenty of scenic spots and historical attractions such as the Potala Palace of the Dalai Lama, Norbulingka Palace, the holiest Jokhang Temple, Barkhor market, Sera and Drepung Monastery. Sera together with Ganden and Drepung Monastery in Lhasa are known as the 'three Great Monasteries of Tibet'. The tour starts crossing over the high passes of Karo La (5,010m/16,437ft), Kamba La (4,794m/15,729ft) and the colorful Yamdrok Tso Lake (4,425m/14,518ft). Then we cross the Gyatchu La pass (5,220m/17,126ft), the highest point on our journey with a visit to the Shakya Monastery. We drive to Ronbuk and visit Ronbuk Monastery, the highest monastery in the world. The next day, we make an excursion to the Everest Base Camp (5,150m/16,897ft)-8km, the tallest peak right in front as if communicating with us in a spiritual language and filling us with stunning views of its north face. After the visit to the Everest Base Camp, we continue our drive to Nyalam by crossing over the Lalung La pass (5,050m/16,569ft) from where the views of Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m/26,907ft) and Mt. Xishapangma (8,012m/26,287ft) are truly magnificent. When necessary border formalities are completed, we cross the Friendship Bridge that spans the Bhote Koshi River and marks the Nepal-Tibet border. We then drive to Kathmandu-156km through the scenic countryside of Nepal.

Season for Tibet Travel:
Tibet travel is ideally good for the period of March through October. The best times considered to visit are spring, early summer and late autumn. Because of Tibet's high altitude, it is wiser to get prepared before starting the journey. Due to the large temperature differences during the day, warm clothes should be taken to keep away the cold. Since the land also receives a great deal of sunshine; sunglasses, sunscreen and a sun hat are indispensable items that are required while travelling in Tibet.
