Tibet Lhasa Overland Tour
Tibet Lhasa Overland Tour is a splendid combination of a rugged overland tour from Kathmandu to Lhasa and the classic Tibet Lhasa City Tour. This Tibet Lhasa Overland Tour starts in Kathmandu, where you Rasuwa-Kerung Highway.
During the Tibetan part of the journey, you’ll cross Nyalamu Pass (3,800m/12,467ft) and Lalung La Pass (5,050m/16,568ft). You continue the trek to Xigatse by crossing Karo La Pass (5,010m/16,437ft) and Kamba La Pass (4,794m/15,728ft).
Yamdrok Tso Lake, also known as Turquoise Lake, is one of the highlights before you go down again to Lhasa. The fan-shaped lake is a 638 km² and spreads to the south, and narrows to the north. Similar to mountains, lakes are considered sacred by Tibetans. Yamdrok Lake is regarded as one of the four holy lakes. The three lakes are Lhamo La-Tso, Namtso, and Manasarovar. Every Tibetan, from the Dalai Lama to local villagers, makes pilgrimages here.
The classic 8-day Tibet Lhasa Overland Tour is a drive-in and fly-out tour from Kathmandu via Rasuwa-Kerung Highway to Lhasa. We can also arrange this tour in the opposite direction at your request.

Trip to Tibet
Without My Everest Trip, this wonderful Tibet trip would not have been possible. To enter Tibet the trip must be prearranged and you should always be accompanied by a guide. My Everest Trip has many years of experience in arranging Tibet tours which is very important for a trip like this. There are many formalities connected to this tour but Puru takes care of all the permits required and offered me great assistance in order to be well prepared for everything. My guide was a kind spirit as Puru only hires the best people.
This tour was an amazing experience. The roof of the world and the peaks of the Himalayas scattered around make you feel small and insignificant yet connected to the higher powers. The five days drive offers scenic views of great beauty leading to two days of sightseeing in Lhasa. Just magnificent.
Choosing a reliable operator for this kind of tour is of paramount importance, therefore I would at all-time recommend My Everest Trip. They offer a great experience and the best service you could wish for, always make you feel special. I would not hesitate for booking a tour in the future with Puru and his team at My Everest Trip.
