Tibet Overland with EBC

Explores the cultural heart of Tibet; its great monasteries, temples and palaces; remote religious centers as well as the incredible beauty of the landscape.
Beautiful riverside samye is an important pilgrimage center; and the great historic centers of Gyantse and Shigatse are not to be missed.
Historic and cultural highlights and an absolutely stunning landscape. 

Explore a very special area of central Tibet and make the classic journey across the Roof of the World.

In the heart of central Tibet the great temples, monasteries, forts and palaces of Lhasa, Gyantse and Sakya are powerful testaments to a long and volatile history and to the spiritual and artistic traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

Skirt the turquoise lake of YamdrokTso, cross mountain passes topped by prayer flags, pass glaciers, barren hillsides and fertile valleys - green, pink or brilliant yellow depending on season.

From the tiny monastery of Rombuk there are stunning views of Qomolangma (Mt Everest) and a trip up to base camp (5200m) brings you even closer.

Overnight in Shigatse and visit the huge, elaborate monastic complex of Tashilumpo before returning to Lhasa via the route along the Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahmaputra River) for a last night dinner together.
