Tibet Tour

   6 Days    Trip Id ( 001-A-85)

Tibet, located on the world's highest plateau, is a land that exudes mystical Buddhism and boasts ancient monasteries and breathtaking scenery. Its rich history, Buddhist scriptures, arts and crafts, and unadulterated form of Buddhism attract numerous travelers.

The 6-day Tibet Tour from Nepal offers a quick yet exhilarating fly-in, fly-out adventure. The tour begins with a day trip to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, Swayambhunath, and Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Afterward, a stunning Trans-Himalayan flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa takes us to the highlights of Tibet, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Potala Palace, Norbulingka, and Jokhang Temple. We also visit centuries-old monasteries like Drepung and Sera Monastery, as well as bustling markets like the Barkhor.

Visiting both a Hinduism-influenced settlement and a Buddhism-influenced settlement in a single trip makes Tibet a must-see destination.

By partnering with Amigo Treks and Expedition, we handle all necessary formalities. Our standard package includes a bed and breakfast at a tourist-standard hotel in Nepal and Tibet, ground transportation, permits, and an English-speaking guide. However, the package can be tailored to your needs and budget, and we offer fixed departures on all customized packages. Additionally, we provide special group discounts for groups.

We recommend the 8-day Tibet Overland Tour or the 10-day Tibet Tour via Everest Base Camp for a longer and more adventurous trip.

Please be advised that in order to obtain a Tibet permit, we require a clear picture of your passport at least 25 days prior to your departure. Additionally, the visa processing time is approximately 3 working days, and please note that the embassy remains closed on Saturdays and Sundays. We highly recommend submitting all necessary documentation well in advance to ensure a smooth and timely process for obtaining your Tibet permit and visa. Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to assisting you with your travel plans.

A company representative will come to receive you at the Gonggar Airport in Lhasa and will transfer you to the hotel booked for you in Lhasa. Lhasa is located at an altitude of 3,490 meters; therefore, compared to Kathmandu, the oxygen content is comparatively less. Therefore, the remaining day will be spent getting involved in activities that help acclimate, like taking a stroll around the city of Lhasa. The night will be spent in a standard tourist hotel in Lhasa.

We will then visit Jokhang Temple, which is a spiritual center of Lhasa that unravels deep-seated mysteries of Tibetan Buddhism. This temple is also on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. After enjoying the temple, we will now visit Barkhor, an area of narrow sacred streets and a public square around the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa. After spending a few hours exploring Barkhor, we will return to the hotel for an overnight stay.
