   The tour begins from Lhasa where we visit the beautiful Potala Palace of the Dalai Lama. Apart from seeing the fabulous landscapes and monasteries in places like Gyantse and Shigatse, this trip is important because we will be visiting the Everest Base Camp for a vivid view of Mount Everest. We will also make a visit to the Dza Rongbuk Monastery. This is a beautiful monastery which is supposed to be the highest in the world. It is situated at an altitude of about 4,920 meters and was constructed by Newant Tenzing Norbu who is supposed to be the 5th incarnation of Lama Sagwa Dorje. You can see the northern face of Mount Everest from here. From the monastery we will make a trek of about one hour to reach the Everest Base Camp situated at a height of 5200 mt. After seeing the spiritual and the natural aspects of Tibet, we will end our tour in Lhasa.
