Driving Tour to Northern Base Camp of Mt. Everest in Tibet

This classic Everest Base Camp tour in Tibet is a journey of a lifetime to explore and experience the fantastic Tibetan culture, brown rolling hills, wrecked forts, ornate artistic monasteries, centuries-old caravan trails, breathtaking scenery, etc. The Lhasa Everest base camp trip offers many exciting, memorable encounters you can't express or explain unless you are a part of it.

Our Tibet Everest Base Camp Tour begins with a fantastic Trans-Himalayan flight to the sacred land of Lhasa over the spectacular peaks of Kanchenjunga (8536m) and course Mt. Everest. We have three nights in Lhasa for proper acclimatization. Next, we witness ancient Shangri's historical sights and sounds, including Potala palace, Norbulinkha temple, Jokhang temple, Sera, and Drepung monasteries. Finally, we visit and explore the Gyantse, the historic fort and monastery.

An exploration of awesome Tibetan culture and views of the incredible Kangshung face of Everest and the world's highest situated Ronbuk Monastery.

At Shigatse, we visit the impressive Tashilhunpo Monastery, the ancient seat of the Panchen Lama, before driving across the stark windswept Tibetan Plateau to the spectacular Rongbuk Valley and Everest Base Camp. The views of the north Kangshung face of Mt. Everest from Rongbuk and Everest base camp are sensational. Traversing through the high passes, rugged terrain, and an incredible formation of the world's highest plateau fascinates you.

It is incredible to view beautiful rocks cascades and canyons that are slightly hidden in the thin flying mists of the mighty presence of Mt. Shisapangma (8212m) on our overland drive back to Nepal board to end the exhilarating Tibet Everest base camp trip with Lhasa highlights.

                              Experience with Mountain Monarch was truly memorable

                              Our experience with Mountain Monarch was truly memorable. We are both experienced travelers in Asia and would not normally utilize the services of an agency. On this occasion, it was just as well we did, as there was a national emergency in Nepal, and Mountain Monarch proved to be a good friend to have in a crisis.

                              We will not hesitate to recommend MM if you want friendly, professional, reliable, and personal service. You really can not go wrong. Thanks again for a wonderfully unique experience.
