Kathmandu Everest Lhasa overland tour : Amazing views of the Himalaya and the Tibetan landscape greet you on the overland drive from Kathmandu to Lhasa (The most beautiful picturesque highway in the world to drive). En route, visit Everest base camp - Rongbuk monastry, Shigatse, the second largest city in Tibet, site of the Tashihunpo monastery. The seat of the Panchen Lamas, Tashihunpo is a vast complex with a golden rooftops and impressive chapels. Although having suffered the ravages of man and time, Gyantse, our next stop, with it's unique Palkor Chode temple and Kumbum Chorten, offers a glimpse of an irretrievably lost era in some of the most extraordinary works of art found in all Tibet.

Take an exhilarating drive to Rombuk - 5000 mtr (Rungbuk monastry) and a mere 7km below Everest Base Camp. The view from here is utterly spectacular! Rombuk is certainly the highest monastery in the world and its guesthouse offers very basic accommodation, but the views that surround us more than compensate - lie in bed and watch the moonlight illuminate the mountain. The monastery here was first built in 1902 by the Nyingma Lama and originally housed more than 500 monks. Today, only about 50 monks and nuns remain, sharing the same prayer hall but with separate residences. The nuns here are great fun and will be delighted to have you join their evening prayers. The energetic can make the 7km hike to Base Camp for a closer view of this magnificent mountain, for the rest pony carts are the go!.

In the mystical capital of Lhasa, there is ample time to explore the former home of the Dalai Lama, Potala Palace, Tibet's world famous resplendent landmark with over 1,000 rooms and 10,000 shrines. There is also Jokhang, Tibet's holiest temple with its priceless statues and frescoes, and the Norbulinka, or Summer Place, from which the present Dalai Lama fled in 1959. Shoppers mustnt miss the Barkhor, the bustling bazaar of old Lhasa which is right on the pilgrim's circumambulating route around Jokhang. Laden with souvenirs and memories of Tibet, you fly back to Kathmandu from Lhasa in a mountain flight that treats you to close-up views of the mighty Himalayas. This adventure begins and ends with two days in Kathmandu, with plenty of time for discovering the city's many attractions.
