Trip Highlights:Tibet Nepal Tour enables you to see the both sides of Himalayas. The tour from Lhasa to Nepal offers the most awesome views in these two areas. In this Tibet Nepal tour, you will travel from the barren Tibetan Plateau to the lush, semitropical scenery of Nepal, the scent of yak butter giving way to curry and incense as you descend into the subcontinent. You can deeply feel the difference beween Tibet and Nepal in dryness and wetness, Buddhism and Hinduism, highness and lowness and heart-beating and breath-taking. Many visitors has lost their hearts to the splendour of the Himalayas and to the friendly Tibetan and Nepalese people. Whether camping on the the starkTibetan plateau, passing through lush jungles or hillside terraces or exploring the ancient temple city of Kathmandu - the tour to cross Himalayas overland from Tibet to Nebal can be anything but normal.

Day 2 Exploring Lhasa
Tibet's spiritual and governmental nexus was the Potala Palace. The palace of the Dalai Lama, in every respect, the celebrity which it enjoys throughout the world. It is powerful yet inviting, secure and stabile, yet fantastic and delightful. We’ll visit the Potala and explore the grandest of its myriad rooms, its audience halls, the immense, jeweled burial chortens of past Dalai Lama.
Tibet's holiest temple, the Jokhang Temple, was often referred to by early Western visitors as Lhasa’s cathedral. “An endless, three-story high flight of chapels surrounds [the statue],” the pioneering Tibetologist Guissepe Tucci wrote, “decorated with the smiling and sneering Buddhist pantheon. Jokhang Temple was built by King Songsten Gampo in 647 A.D. no place in Tibet than the Johkang can attract so many pilgrims, so much spiritual longing. The Jokhang is circled by the Barkhor, Lhasa's old market. In today's Barkhor we can bargain goodnaturedly for dorjes, phurbas, thangkas, and other religious implements, for Tibetan hats and boots, books, turquoise jewelry, everyday exotica, wall hangings, and maybe even some yak butter. Overnight in Lhasa
Day 3 Exploring Lhasa
Also during our Lhasa stay, we visit two of the great monasteries of central Tibet: the Drepung Monastery(due west of Lhasa) and the Sera Monastery (just north). Drepung Monastery was once home to 10,000 monks and the Dalai Lamas – it was the seat of central government until the Fifth Dalai Lama built the Potala – and Sera housed almost as many. Of the Gelugpa monasteries in Tibet, Drepung and Sera are the two greatest. If we are lucky, we may quietly ease inside to hear the lilting, booming chanting of the sutras. Or perhaps we’ll sit under a willow tree and watch as the monks engage in theatrical debate.Overnight in Lhasa
