Two trekkers Moshe Kozlovski and Drora Levi Kozlovski from Israel planned to do the trip that blends with the cultural and adventure in Tibet. They decided to go for the ‘Tingri to Everest Base camp trek’ which was mixed with the tour to the different monasteries in Lhasa, Shightse, Gyantse as well as trekking to the lap of the Everest – the highest mountain of the world starting from the small bustling Tibetan market of Tingri.
They spent 4 days for the sightseeing tour to Potala Palace, Norbulinkha Palace, Drepung and Sera Monastery and Jokhang Temple and acclimatization in Lhasa before crossing the passes of 5000 m. On the way, they visited Yam Drok Tso Lake, Gyantse Dong, Kubum in Gyantse and Tashilampo Monastery in Shightse which have their own religious importance.
