Travel by private Landcruiser, private minibus and flight. Some long journeys, plus travel at altitude.
10 nights standard hotels, with en suite facilities, 2 nights basic guest houses with shared facilities.
11 breakfasts included.
There are some fairly long days of driving on this trip, and due to some rough roads and altitude this can be tiring.
The border formalities on day 13can take time and it is not unusual to have to queue for around 1 hour at passport control. The road after the border to Kathmandu (also day 13) is not in a very good condition and we will be in a bus for this part of the journey.
Whilst in Tibet you will spend most of the time above 3500m and altitude must be taken into consideration, but plenty of time is given for acclimatisation.
This is quite a tough trip, due to the high altitudes, but the stunning scenery, cultural interest and the Tibetan people make any discomforts worthwhile.
At Rongbuk and Zhangmu the accommodation is basic.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 16, plus leader and local guide in Tibet. Minimum age 18.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Requires a spirit of adventure and some fitness, as the trip may involve more activities or longer journeys.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
