Tibet Overland Tour is an adventure travel in the highest plateau of the world, a land so rich in culture, tradition and has been a mysterious and timeless landscape, cut off from the rest of the world by the mighty Himalayas, aptly called the Roof of the World. The first part of the tour offers fascinating views of the incredible formation of the highest plateau of the world while the second part brings us so close to the unique culture, legends, myths, rituals and festivals. The third or last part takes us over the majestic Himalayas offering breathtaking view of the Himalayan ranges including Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,028ft) by an-hour long trans-Himalayan flight on the way back from Lhasa to Kathmandu. In Lhasa, there are plenty of scenic spots and historical attractions such as the Potala Palace of the Dalai Lama with thirteen storey and 1000 rooms, Norbulingka, the summer palace of the Dalai Lama, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery and Jokhang Temple-the holiest shrine of Tibet. This is the right overland tour which covers most of the best parts of Tibet along friendship highway to the famous Tashilhunpo Monastery at Shigatse (Xigatse), the historic town of Gyantse, the Yamdrok Tso Lake and the spectacular view of snow capped peaks including northern face of the majestic Mt. Everest. Tibet is a cold and dry land and visit to Tibet in summer is found to be more popular, however some of our clients have recommended that visit to Tibet in winter is “good” if you are interested in the cultures and festivals of Tibet.

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.
