Nearby Mount Kailash is the beautiful high altitude lake of Lake Manasarovar, also a place of pilgrims. The most recent time I visited Lake Manasarovar with a group, we were lucky enough to meet with some nomadic Tibetan herders who were on their way to far western Tibet with their sheep.
CHOMOLUNGMA (MOUNT EVEREST)
The crown in Tibet’s mountainous glory is the world’s most famous, Mount Everest. The Tibetan side of the world’s highest peak is, without a doubt, its most spectacular. The main viewing point is just a short trek from where we will be staying at Rongbuk Monastery in a guest house. We will be arriving in the Mount Everest area to visit the view point and its memorial to George Mallory. Even from our guest house we will be able to see the sunset and sunrise if the conditions are clear.
Our final leg of the expedition will see us returning from Mount Everest to Lhasa via an overnight stop in Shigatse, where we will visit the immense monastery of Tashi Lunpho.
Over two and a half days before the trip ends in Kathmandu, I will be happy to show you around the Hindu ghat of Pashupatinath, the rural villages of Bungamati and Khokana, Dakshinkali Temple, Neydo Monastery, Patan, Bhaktapur, Changu Narayan and Panauti town.
