Lhasa and Everest Base camp - 8 days

Lhasa and Everest Base camp - 8 days

 

Fixed Departure cost: US$ 1440 per person

Trip to Tibet is a fantastic and special experience. It is adventurous. It is ancient Tibet and modern China in the process of blending together. You travel for days on this remote plateau with chance encounters of nomads herding their sheep or yaks. When Tibet was widely opened for outsiders in 1980, it brought a tremendous boost in its economic development and phase of modernization; naturally the cultural degradation lead to a long gap between the old people and youngsters within the country, in the way of their speaking, attitude, clothing, belief, manner and so on, but the Buddhism philosophy and practice has deeply rooted in their day to day life of all Tibetans, intensively celebrate religious festivals and making pilgrimages to distant monasteries, holy mountains and lakes are becoming indispensable part of their life.
