Everest Base Camp Trek with Tibet Tour is a great adventure opportunity as it includes the Everest Base Camp trek, the most popular trek in Nepal, and a short tour of the forbidden city, Lhasa in Tibet. The tour involves two countries and gives you a unique experience in terms of nature, culture, geography, and lifestyle. 

This 14-day EBC trekking experience is considered the best trekking route in Nepal as it has a combination of natural and cultural experiences. As you hike the trail to Everest Base Camp, you will not only see the highest peaks in the world, including Mt. Everest, but also get a chance to understand Sherpas, their culture, and why they are the best at mountaineering.

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, shy people with their own unique lifestyle.

This combined journey of Nepal and Tibet gives you knowledge about the nature, culture, tradition, and lifestyle of the Nepalese Himalayan region and the Tibetans.
