In Nepal we will tour Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur for three days. This part of the pilgrimage will have a different approach to sightseeing. Whenever possible, the group will be left to freely explore the sites, especially spiritual sites such as temples or monasteries.
In Tibet, this journey covers Lhasa's main spiritual sites: Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor street, Drepung and Sera monastery with Gyantse Kumbum and Shigatse Tashi Lhunpho monastery. We will admire special natural sceneries such as the sacred lake Yamdrok tso and Karo glacier with a stunning view of Mt. Everest. Namtso Lake is the second largest alpine saline lake in Tibet and it is a special holy site for Buddhists.
