Day 1: Arrive in Lhasa airport or train station

Welcome to Tibet and the 1st day of our 8 Days Lhasa to Everest Base Camp Group Tour.

Upon arrival in Lhasa, our Tibetan guide will greet you at the Lhasa airport or train station. We will then transfer you to the 4 Star Gang-Gyen Hotel in the Old Town of Lhasa. You can then explore Lhasa’s Old Town and the main Barkhor Square.

Day 2: Lhasa tour: Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery.

The 2nd day of this 8 Days Lhasa to Everest Base Camp Group Tour will start with a trip to the Jokhang Temple. Since the year 2000, the Jokhang has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

After lunch, we’ll drop by the 15th-century Sera Monastery. Together with Ganden Monastery and Drepung Monastery, the three monasteries form the Great Three Gelug University Monasteries of Tibet.

Be sure to catch the ‘arguing’ monks in action, debating animatedly on various Buddhist topics and philosophies.

Explore all corners of Lhasa in your free evening.

After lunch, you will visit Drepung Monastery, one of the 3 Gelugpa Monasteries in Tibet, together with Ganden & Sera Monasteries.

Once again, you are free to travel around and sightsee Lhasa city on your own.

Day 4: Lhasa—Yamdrok Lake—Karo La Glacier—Gyantse—Shigatse (350km, 7-hour drive)

On the fourth day of this 8 Days Lhasa to Everest Base Camp Group Tour, we will set out for Yamdrok Lake.

Right after breakfast, we’ll drive through the scenic Yarlung River Valley towards the legendary Yamdrok Lake.

You’ll get an extensive view of this astonishing lake once we get to Kamba La Pass. Continue along the lake shore to Nagarzê for our lunch.

With a full stomach, we’ll ascend the magnificent Karo La Glacier. From here, you’ll get a close-up view of Nojin Kangsang.

Our next stop will be the Gyantse town. In this beautiful city, you see the massive Gyantse Kumbum Stupa as well as the Pelkor Chode Monastery (Palcho Monastery).

Once we reach Shigatse, we will check in at the 4-star Gesar Hotel for the night.

Day 5: Shigatse—Gyatso La Pass—Everest Base Camp (350km, 7-hour drive)

Things are starting to get exciting on day 5 of our great Tibet journey.

Today you will go from Shigatse to Tibet’s North Face Everest Base Camp. You will pass through some Tibetan villages throughout today’s journey.

The first scenic landscape of the day will be the majestic Himalayan mountains from the 5248-meter Gyatso La Pass.

Shortly later, you will cross another pass, the Geu La Pass. If the skies and weather are on your side, you can see 5 of the world’s 15 highest peaks from here!

As you travel deeper into the mountains, you will soon reach Rongbuk Monastery. This is the highest monastery in the world (5000m high). The view of Mount Everest from here will be the highlight of your 8 Days Lhasa to Everest Base Camp Group Tour.

Once you’re done posing for the camera, we will continue to Tent Hotels (Guesthouse). The Tent Hotels are the closest accommodation to Mt. Everest and located just 2 kilometers before base camp.

As they operate only from April to October, you’d need to stay at Rongbuk Monastery Guesthouse if you are here out of this period.

From the Tent Hotels (5050 meters), you can take a separate bus for the remaining 2 kilometers to the Everest base camp. If you’re up for the challenge, go on and hike this last 2km.

Overnight in the Tent guesthouse.

Day 6: Everest—Shigatse (270km, 7-hour drive)

In the morning of day 6 of this 8 Days Lhasa to Everest Base Camp Group Tour, you will be pleasantly greeted by a gorgeous sunrise over Mt. Everest.

Right after the sunrise, we will make the journey back to Shigatse. You will make one more stop at Rongbuk Monastery and at the Geu La Pass for some final views of Mt. Everest.

In Shigatse, you will stay at the 4-Star Gesar Hotel once more.

Day 7: Shigatse—Lhasa

We’ll kickstart the seventh day of your 8 Days Lhasa to Everest Base Camp Group Tour with a tour to Tashi Lhunpo Monastery.

This is one of the main attractions in Shigatse and one of the largest monasteries in central Tibet. You will then follow the beautiful Yarlung River back to Lhasa.

You will arrive in Lhasa in the late afternoon with enough time to do a last-minute shopping in Lhasa old town.

Overnight in 4-Star Gang-Gyen Hotel.
