There are many discoveries to make
outside of Lhasa. In Shigatse visit
Tashilhunpo Monastery, the traditional
residence of the Panchen Lama and
in Gyantse see the famous Gyantse
Kumbum, the largest shrine in Tibet.
But importantly, immerse yourself
in the Tibetan culture to better
understand life at the roof of the world.
On this adventure, distances are large
and conditions are basic but you will
experience a land like no other.
Mt Everest Base Camp
Travel over remote roads to Rongbuk
Monastery at an altitude of 5,500m.
While here you can take a photo at
the base camp marker, mingle with
the climbers and maybe walk to

Base Camp is a challenging journey
and conditions are tough but the
rewards of experiencing this remote
place are immeasurable.
