Before they went to Lhasa overland tour they went 3 days Chitwan National park for jungle safari and they did fantastic Elephant safari. Royal Chitwan National Park, the oldest National Park in Nepal, is situated in the sub-tropical inner Terai lowlands of South-Central Nepal. The Park was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1984.
Himalayan Glacier Trekking organized their 5th trip Kathmandu to Lhasa overland tour. The drive from Katmandu to Lhasa over spectacular Passes and revealing views of the majestic Himalayas, takes seven days over the “Friendship Highway”. The drive is well worth it as you encounter some enchanting Buddhist monasteries, highest mountain of the world (Mt. Everest) and remote villages untouched by modern civilization. While approaching the city you will be able to notice the Potala Palace, a vast white and ochre fortress that dominates the Lhasa skyline, en route we will stop for one night in Everest Base Camp (Ronbuk). Beside the Everest Base Camp, the will by pass through the major highlighted places of Tibet, Nyalam, Shigatse & Gyantse the historical seat of Tibetan power and the location of the tombs of previous Dalai Lamas, the Potala Palace has been reduced to serve as a symbolic feature for Tibetan aspirations.
