The flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa provides a dramatic view of Nepal Himalayas from Annapurna to Kanchanjungha. The flight parallels to the spectacular range, veers down and cuts a path around Mt. Everest. Lesser snow peaks below gradually give way to the dry, brown ridges of the Tibetan Plateau. This special package tour begins from Kathmandu. It takes an hour from Kathmandu to Tibet and ends the tour with an overland drive to Kathmandu. The tour is the perfect blending of flying, sightseeing and driving experience.
The scenic tour passing through the beautiful turquoise Lake Yamdrok Tso, the famous Tashilhunpo Monastery, and the seat of the Panchen Lama at Shigatse are worth visiting while driving back to Kathmandu. The high passes, the nomads’ camp and an extensive Tibetan plateau can make you thoughtful. The great view of Everest, Cho-Oyu, Makalu and Sishapangma from Tingri is just an incredible. Then, after crossing border to Nepal, you drive to Kathmandu enjoying the panoramic view around.
