Beijing Lhasa Kathmandu tour

Beijing Lhasa Kathmandu tour starts in Beijing, a city in Northern China. Beijing, an ancient capital and a bustling modern metropolis is a city of amazing contrasts. In Beijing some incredible historical sites awaits you. On a guided tour, you can explore the Forbidden City, the Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall of China and the Temple of Heaven.

Leaving Beijing you embark on a train journey to Lhasa, aboard the world's highest railway, the Qinghai-Tibet railway. As the train trundles along the high Tibetan plateau, picturesque scenes of Tibetan countryside whiz by. Owing to Tibet's high altitude the train has been equipped with oxygen-supplying equipments. Oxygen masks are available for those who are prone to altitude sickness.

In the historical city of Lhasa, you will be taken on a guided tour to all the city's major attractions: Potala palace, Sera monastery, Derpung monastery, Norbulinkha palace, etc. . . . Excursions to important Tibetan cities of Shigatse, Gyantse and Shegar are also included in your itinerary. On reaching Rongbuk monastery, you get to view the world's highest mountain Mount Everest. As you leave Zhangmu and cross the Friendship Bridge you enter Nepal. There is a refreshing change in scenery, as verdant greenery replaces the dry and arid Tibetan landscapes. In Kathmandu you will get to explore the three medieval cities: Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.
