Tibet is not an easy holiday to arrange or manage, with visas and travel permits being a major pain, transport sometimes erratic (e.g. what's the best way to get there? Train? Plane? Jeep from Nepal?) and conditions occasionally grueling so travelling with a tour operator for this trip - even if you are a confirmed individual travel freak - makes sense.
Whatever, check out what the professionals have to say before making any decisions you may regret!
Uncovered organise two tours toTibet, both starting and finishing in Nepal and then either driving overland to Lhasa, or flying there directly from Kathmandu. While in Tibet you'll see spectacular Himalayan scenery and mountain lakes, and learn about Tibetan Buddhism while visiting some beautiful monasteries and temples. Extensions into Tibet can also be added onto any of our Nepal tours.
Overland to Lhasa (12 days):
Following the Friendship Highway from Nepal to Tibet, this spectacular overland journey takes you from the busy streets of medieval Kathmandu to Lhasa, the ancient abode of the Dalai Lamas.
Remote villages and pilgrim paths, monasteries and palaces; all set against a backdrop of high Himalayan mountains, passes and wide open plains. This is an unforgettable journey through one of the most interesting and unique regions on earth
Himalayan Explorer (16 days including Bhutan):
This tour explores the three Himalayan countries of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet, giving you a dramatic introduction to their scenery, cultures and histories. The itinerary concentrates on cultural sightseeing, with some short and easy walks built in to allow you to get closer to traditional rural life as well.
