Lhasa, Everest Base Camp - Namtso Lake Tour
Trip Code: HDT0817
Your journey begins from the calm, serene and exotic city of Lhasa, Tibet. Admire the magnificent and mysterious architectural wonders of the city: Potala Palace, once the winter residence of the Dalai Lamas. Explore Tibetan culture, centuries old Buddhist monasteries which include the Jokhang Temple, Drepung, Sera and Norbulinka Monasteries. This excursion allows you to experience the remote Tibetan high plateau, holy lakes, glaciers and connects you to Mount Everest Base Camp through Rongbuk monastery. Enjoy the incredible North face of Mount Everest. Isolated, yet serene, natural and mystical Namtso Lake in Tibet is a revelation. The bewildering and un-navigable waters (due to religious reasons) of the Lakes in Tibet have allowed this region to keep its spiritual heritage largely intact. Being the second largest saltwater lake in China only after Qinghai Lake, the turquoise blue Namtso Lake is the biggest in Tibet. It always provides the visitor with awesome and spectacular vistas and photographic opportunities.
