We will pick you up at your hotel and arrange for transportation to the airport in Kathmandu.
This flight over the Himalayas from Kathmandu to Lhasa is truly unforgettable. During the spectacular flight we see a number of 8000 people in Nepal including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and Makalu.
Upon arrival at Gonggar Airport in Tibet, there is transportation to the hotel in Lhasa.
The drive from the airport to Lhasa takes about 1.5 hours, including the Tsangpo. The Tsangpo rises in Tibet near the holy mountain Mount Kailash. When entering India, the name Tsangpo changes to Bhramaputra.
From far away we see the characteristic Potala, the former winter palace of the Dalai Lama, rising on the horizon.
We use the rest of the day to acclimatize, Lhasa is 3650 meters and we feel that all too well.
