Tibetan Highway Tour.

Tibetan Highway Tour.

Posted Feb 7th, 2013 under Trip Report,


Four Aussies arrived to Lasha on December 11 and right away drove 183km to Tsedang 3550m. Their Overland Tour of Tibet would begin after few days of sightseeing tour around Lasha. On the list of places to visit in Lasha they made to Yarlung Valley, Samye Monastery, Potala Palace, Ganden Monastery and Nmatso Lake. They also rejoiced a leisure time wondering the streets of authentic Barkhor Square.

As their Overland Tour began on December 19 the first day they drove 261km to Gyantse 3950m sliding down passing the stunning Yamdrok Tse Lake. Covering all the major Tibetan cultural sites throughout the Friendship Highway the Aussie lineup drove to the Everest Base Camp which was the most exciting part of their highland journey.

As they were sliding down the passes after the five days drive they were at Zhangmu the last Tibetan City. After the immigration formalities the lineup entered Nepal.

During the journey along the Friendship Highway joining the two culturally unique nations; Tibet and Nepal, the lineup were absolute spellbound with the bountiful natural surprises on the Himalayan region.

Happy Explorers

Best memory of the trip was helicopter ride to Everest. I would recommend fellow travelers to include the helicopter ride to Mt. Everest during their trip to Nepal.
