Ms. Anita Bager and Mr. Peter Nilsson celebrated the holiday during the Tibet Overland Tour which includes Tibetan capital Lhasa and the drive on the feted Friendship Highway. As soon as they arrived to Lhasa they began to explore the cultural and spiritual monuments of Lhasa before they hit the road on Friendship Highway. Potala Palace, Sera and Deprung Monasteries, Jhokhang Temple and the typical Barkhor Square were the sites in Lhasa the Danish visitors through our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel explored.
Then their trip on the 1000 km long Friendship Highway, from Lhasa to Kathmandu, crossed passed four passes above 5000m. The tempting vista of Yamdrok tso Lake at the 4447m was breathtaking and the panoramic view of glaciated peaks were outstanding throughout the ride. The ride went on to the historic city of Gyantse which prides on Gyantse Dzong. Down the isolated passes they rode down to Shigaste the Chinese Town with Tibetan Flavor. Shigaste 3900m nestles right below New Tingri. Chasing the road towards South they arrived to Shegar, New Shegar, Rongphu Monastry and Everest Base Camp from the Tibetan side. From here the road brought them to Nepal via Nyalam and Zhangmu.
We find it very important that our travelling contributes to the preservation of Nepal’s fragile and beautiful nature. We encourage Kipling Travels and Explore Himalaya to start working with different tea-houses / lodges and hotels on sustainability initiatives- like waste recycling, solar heating etc.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
