In our this Kathmandu Everest Lhasa overland tour
Amazing views of the Himalaya and the Tibetan landscape
greet you on the overland drive from Kathmandu to Lhasa (The
most beautiful picturesque highway in the world to drive).
En route, visit Everest base camp - Rongbuk monastry, Shigatse,
the second largest city in Tibet, site of the Tashihunpo monastery.
The seat of the Panchen Lamas, Tashihunpo is a vast complex
with a golden rooftops and impressive chapels. Although having
suffered the ravages of man and time, Gyantse, our next stop,
with it's unique Palkor Chode temple and Kumbum Chorten, offers
a glimpse of an irretrievably lost era in some of the most
extraordinary works of art found in all Tibet. The
above picture is Everest - Base camp Rongphuk Tibet
- view of our Kathmandu to Lhasa overland tour via Everest
base camp Tibet!
Take an exhilarating drive to Rombuk - 5000 mtr and a mere
7km below Everest Base Camp. The view from here is utterly
spectacular! Rombuk ( Rongbuk) is certainly the highest monastery
in the world and its guesthouse offers very basic accommodation,
but the views that surround us more than compensate - lie
in bed and watch the moonlight illuminate the mountain. The
monastery here was first built in 1902 by the Nyingma Lama
and originally housed more than 500 monks. Today, only about
50 monks and nuns remain, sharing the same prayer hall but
with separate residences. The nuns here are great fun and
will be delighted to have you join their evening prayers.
The energetic can make the 7km hike to Base Camp for a closer
view of this magnificent mountain, for the rest – pony
carts are the go.
In the mystical capital of Lhasa, there is ample time to explore
the former home of the Dalai Lama, Potala Palace, Tibet's
world famous resplendent landmark with over 1,000 rooms and
10,000 shrines. There is also Jokhang, Tibet's holiest temple
with its priceless statues and frescoes, and the Norbulinka,
or Summer Place, from which the present Dalai Lama fled in
1959. Shoppers mustnt miss the Barkhor, the bustling bazaar
of old Lhasa which is right on the pilgrim's circumambulating
route around Jokhang. Laden with souvenirs and memories of
Tibet, you fly back to Kathmandu from Lhasa in a mountain
flight that treats you to close-up views of the mighty Himalayas.
This adventure begins and ends with two days in Kathmandu,
with plenty of time for discovering the city's many attractions.

about Tibet Lhasa's most important sites : Our Kathmandu to
Lhasa overland tour via Everest base camp covers this all.
The Potala Palace Tibet:
It is located north of the middle section of Beijing Road.
Actually Lhasa is not a big city. It is sandwiched by two
mountains from north side and south side. The Lhasa river
rides over the city. So most part of the city is located on
the flat land between the mountains. The Potala Palace is
built on the high land uplifting of the flat land. The palace
climbing was a tough job! The palace is 115.703 meters high.
People have to walked step by step to the top. The Potala
Palace was built at the time of Songtsan Ganmpo in the 7th
century. In the 17th century the 5th Dalai Lama extended the
palace to its present size. At this time, it became Dalai
Lama's living and working place. He first combined the Religion
and the politics, unifying the Tibet to its greatest extent.
The main construction is divided into two parts: red and white
palaces. It include living quarters, temples, funerals supas
and monk dormotories. The countless cultural relics in the
palace are of priceless value.
The Jokhang Temple:
To people's surprise,
there are always a great number of local Tibetan people around
it there. They either pray with hands and knees touching the
ground or walking around the Jokhang Temple. Walking around
the Jokhang Temple is said that it can bring prosperity and
peace to one's whole life. Most of them come from the remote
villages or mountainous areas. They come here once a year.
The Jokhang Temple
was first built by King
Songtsem Gampo (617 – 650). He was the 33rd king of
Tibet. He was the leader of the Tubo (or Tibetan) Kingdom.
He actively promoted Buddhism in Tibet. During his reign,
Tibet achieved great progress in social innovation and realized
the integration of Tibet for the first time. Before he built
the Jokhang Temple, he had built the Little Jokhang Temple
for one of his two wives -- Princess Wen Cheng who came from
the Tang Dynasty. His another wife was Princess Bhrikuti of
Nepal. Jealous of her, Princess Burikuti asked Gampo to construct
a Jokhang for her as well. Therefore, in 647 the big temple
was built. Later it was repaired and expanded many times in
Ming ande Qing dynasties. After visiting the Jokhang Temple,
people usually also walk around the temple along the famous
The Barkhor is the oldest
street in Lhasa as well as the center of old Lhasa and remains
very traditional. It is a place where Tibetan culture, economy,
religion and arts are assembled. Walking around the Jokhang
Temple is said that it can bring prosperity and peace to one's
whole life. The street is lined with huge numbers of shops
selling various kinds of tourist stuff with Tibetan style
- skybeads and much more.
It is built on the slope
of the Tatipu Mountain. It was named "Sera" due
to the fact that lot of roses were once found on the mountains.
"Sera" in Tibetan Language means"rose".
It has an assembley hall. three collegea. Sera is most famous
for lamas debating activity each afternoon from 3:000pm. The
Sera Monastery is dedicated to the Gelugpa or Yellow Hat Sect,
a branch of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Tsong Khapa. Jamchen
Chojey, one of Tsong Khapa's disciples built the monastery
in 1419 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The Gelugpa or
Yellow Hat Sect of Tibetan Buddhism studies Buddhist doctrines
by using a slow but systemic process. As a part of their study,
lamas must take part in debates to further their learning
and get to more advanced levels of study. The debating traditions
in the Sera Monastery are unique among the three famous monasteries
in Lhasa. Debates are practised by the lamas in the monastery
every day from 3.a.m. In a battle of words, they further their
efforts by using a variety of gestures including clapping
their hands, pushing their partners for an answer and more
