This amazing journey will take you to one of the least know, yet highest peaks in the world. Shishapangma, hidden from Nepal by the Himalayan range, is highly regarded as our most remote and most scenic trips in all of Tibet. The high altitude walk is a little easier as there are no major passes to ascend. However, the landscape and scenery along the way rivals any other Himalayan Trek. The lack of other tourist along the way also makes this journey even more rewarding. The beautiful weather during the day, yet rain at night, allows for a wondrous walk through lush meadows and blossoming wildflowers.
After our awe-inspiring trek we will visit the historic city of Lhasa. This wondrous city is generally regarded as the heart of Tibet and is filled with unparalleled history, culture, and beauty. The Potala Palace dominates the skyline with its powerful and ancient architecture. The numerous temples and monasteries surrounding the city, such as the Jokhang and Drepung, allow travelers to experience Tibetan Buddhism first hand. A visit to these ancient monasteries will leave you with a sense of astonishment for years to come! Stops will be made along the way in the small towns of Gyantse and Shigatse. Allow you to relax in these extraordinary towns and immerse yourself in the rich Buddhist culture. You can learn a lot from these Tibetan people. It will be even easier to enjoy Tibet as nothing but the best Tibetan hotels will be provided for you.
