Trip Overview

Tibet Tour with EBC is the combined package that combines Tibet Overland Tour with Everest Base Camp Tour in a single package of just 8-days. Tibet, the roof of the world holds its own charm in being the Shangrila Land where people travel to escape from the modern cacophony of life.

Also popular as Lhasa to Everest Base Camp Tour, this package is available as a private tour or with a group arranged by Highland Expeditions.  Lhasa is the spiritual capital of Tibet that holds places of interest like Potala Palace, Norbulinka Palace, Sera Monastery, Jokhang Temple and bustling Barkhor Bazaar. Witness the world’s richest Dreprung Monastery. The journey is scenic with views of outstanding natural scenery. Cross the Mountain Pass and enjoy the view of Yamdrok Yumtso Lake. Get in-depth insight into the time-forgotten culture of locals. Tibet is one of the few places in the world where one can still observe nomadic life. Explore the mystery of Lhasa. Visit Rongbuk Monastery and reach to the Base Camp of Everest from Tibet. The upside of choosing Everest Base Camp from Northern side is that one can drive all the way to Base Camp. So, there is no need of going through challenging trekking.

April to June and September to December are best season for Tibet Tour with EBC.
