Mrs Vinni Smed and her husband Mr Hans Hiordt Hansen this July led a cultural group of Seventeen people from Denmark to the Roof of the World – Tibet. The group arrived in Lhasa on a train from Beijing on 13 July and exited Tibet from zhangmu border to Nepal on 23 July. Thereafter, they spent 3 days excursing some of the UNESCO world heritage sites around Kathmandu valley before heading back to their homeland.
On this tour the group visited some of the famous sites in Tibet such as Potala Palace, Sera Monastery, Deprung Monastery, Jokhang Temple, Gyantse Dzong, Norbulinka Palace, Gyantse Kumbum,Tashilunpo Monastery and many more. They not only got to learn the culture, heritage and history but also got to view picturistic landscape of the beautiful country. Also the centre of attraction was the majestic view of Mountains like Everest, Sishapangma, Cho Oyu, Menlungtse and Gauri Shanker.
In Nepal some of the places the group visited were Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, Kathmandu Durbar Square and Bhaktapur Durbar Square.
The group was very happy with the tour and organizing skills of our company. They wish to travel with Explore Himalaya if they ever happen to come again in the Himalayas.
All the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They accommodated all requests to the best of their ability. The trek was a good level of difficulty for our students. Meals have been excellent, especially on the trek. Porters were extremely polite and helpful. Service was very good.
