If you seek to explore something magical and get a flavor of majestic beauty and extraordinary life of the high Himalayas - Everest Base Camp Trek with Tibet Tour is a great adventure opportunity. 

Everest Base Camp or simply EBC is one of the most sought-after trek in Nepal providing you the enchanting and pristine serene of the Himalayan mountains of the Solukhumbhu region. Located in the vicinity of the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mount Everest (8848 m) is located here where you can enjoy the beauty of immaculate snowy mountain peaks.

Extraordinarily rich in biodiversity, the trek route has an abundance of the lush green forest of oak, pine, junipers and blooming rhododendrons forests. Plus, diverse wildlife like snow leopards, jackals, musk deer, Himalayan Thar, and birds like Impeyan Pheasant (national bird of Nepal), Himalayan monal, etc.

Lhasa, on the other hand, is the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region of China and is a center of Tibetan Buddhism. It has great monuments with Tibetan architecture, monasteries with artistic Thangka painting, and friendly people with their own unique lifestyles. Tibet is also a center for learning mystic arts. 

Potala Palace, constructed in the 17th century is one of the spectacular jewels of Lhasa city and former residence of his holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama. Norbulingka, the summer palace of the Tibetan spiritual master, are some of the prominent sites on our Tibet tour.

This combined journey of Nepal and Tibet gives you profound bliss while traveling as well as little knowledge about the nature, tradition and culture, and lifestyle of the Nepalese and Tibetans of the Himalayan region.
