Nowhere else on this planet can you hike on trails to such altitude without the need for crampons, ice axe or mountaineering skills. The trek up to 6340meters – highest trek in the world, Everest advance base camp start once we take scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa. We’ll pass small Tibetan settlements, nomadic herdsmen wandering across the wide arid plains and awe-inspiring mountain peaks. Equally as fascinating is the wealth of cultural interest and we will have plenty of opportunity to explore this side of Tibet, both in Lhasa and the other towns we pass through on our journey to Kathmandu.

We spend 3 nights in Lhasa, staying right in the centre of the old city. This will allow both plenty of time for acclimatization and easy access to the city’s main attractions – the Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple. Leaving Lhasa in our Toyota Land cruiser 4 wheel drive, we’ll travel through this amazing country, staying in the best traditional hotels Tibet has to offer. In the towns of Gyantse and Shigatse we explore further monasteries and fully immerse ourselves in the Buddhist culture.

Without doubt, a highlight of this trip is the visit to Everest Base Camp, and the trek to camp 3 at 6400meters., where the sheer grandeur of Everest’s north face you have to see to believe. This trek takes you as close to the summit of Everest as any non-climber can go. This adventure, the highest trek in the world, is an incredible journey to camp 3 and the base of the North Col via the East Rongbuk Glacier.
