An ultimate journey to the advanced base camp of the world’s tallest mountain, Everest from Tibet
Embark on the Everest Base Camp Trek from north face of Tibet for walking on the highest trek in the world. The Everest Advanced Base Camp Trek altitude is a gain of 1,310m (4,300ft) from the base camp. It is a wonderful opportunity to experience the mountainous landscape on the ‘Roof of the World’. We walk on the trails used by Everest summiteers and end our journey at the Everest Advanced Base camp at 6,340m (20,800ft). The trip begins in Lhasa where we visit Potala and Norbulingka Palaces along with other landmarks. Next, we drive to Shigatse, then to the trailhead at Lotingri. In between, we visit few other Tibetan landmarks like Tashilhunpo Monastery, Khumbum Stupa, Phalkot Monastery and others which showcase the rich culture and history of the Tibetans. Reaching Advanced Base Camp of the world’s highest mountain, Everest guarantees us a sweeping view of the majestic mountain and is certainly a surreal experience for any adventure enthusiast.

 Day 1: Arrival in Lhasa
We arrive in Lhasa either through a direct flight from Nepal or via mainland China. If we choose to fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa, we will be on an hour-long Trans-Himalayan flight, which provides enchanting views of some of the highest glaciers in the Himalayan region. If we are going to Lhasa via mainland China, we may fly from any major city or take the world’s highest train route to Lhasa. A representative from Himalayan Glacier will pick us up either from the airport or the train station for about an hour’s drive to our designated hotel in Lhasa. Once in our hotel room, it is advised to take plenty of rest for the remainder of the day to minimize altitude sickness. Overnight in Lhasa.
Day 2: Sightseeing in Lhasa 
Potala Palace, Norbulingka Palace and Tibet Traditional Hospital
After breakfast, we begin sightseeing in Lhasa. Today is the day we visit the beautiful Potala and Norbulingka palaces. Built in the 17th century, Potala Palace provides amazing views of the entire city and houses private quarters of the Dalai Lama, numerous grand state rooms and chapels. Norbulingka Palace is the summer palace of the Dalai Lama and houses what is considered to be the largest man-made garden in Tibet. We further visit the Tibet Traditional Hospital which is the center for the treatment, training, research and production of Tibetan medicine. Overnight in Lhasa.
Day 3: Sightseeing in Lhasa
Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery, Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Bazaar
After breakfast, we visit Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery, Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Bazaar. Drepung Monastery, which was built in the 14th century, is believed to have sheltered around 10,000 monks in the past but as of now there has been a serious decline resulting in only a few hundred. The history, culture, and religious beliefs of the Tibetan people are strongly concentrated and centered in this marvelous monastery. Sera Monastery is a preserved monastery of white-washed walls and golden roofs. Jokhang Temple is another important sacred site which unravels more deep-seated mysteries of Tibetan Buddhism. We further stroll through Barkhor Bazaar (market). With its open-air stalls, shops and crowd of pilgrims, it is the nerve center of Lhasa. Overnight in Lhasa.
Day 4: Drive from Lhasa to Shigatse via Gyantse
After breakfast, we embark on a pleasant drive to Shigatse, the second biggest city in Tibet, via Gyantse.

Further to the west, we come across another pass, Karo La (5,045m) and take in amazing views of the majestic glaciers. Upon reaching Gyantse, we visit the Khumbum Stupa, Phalkot Monastery and Gyantse Dzong (fortress), which is one of the best-preserved dzongs in Tibet. From Gyantse, we continue to Shigatse, enjoying a captivating mountain landscape along the way. Overnight in Shigatse.
