17 days Taj Triangle, Kathmandu & Tibet Tour Code: CT-5001

This tour of a lifetime gives visitors a chance to see some major sites in India before flying to Nepal, then spending the final week in Tibet. In India, we tour Delhi, the Taj Mahal at Agra and Jaipur, then fly to Kathmandu for some comprehensive sightseeing in and around Nepal's capital. An exciting option is the morning helicopter trip to Syangboche in the high Himalayas. After a short flight from Nepal to Tibet, we explore the attractions in and around Lhasa, then commence to Shigatse and Gyantse, before driving overland back to Nepal, via Everest base camp.

Please note: Timing on this tour is a bit tricky. Two working days are required in Kathmandu to process your Tibet visa. In addition, there are no flights from Kathmandu to Lhasa on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. So because of timing considerations, including the date of your arrival in Delhi, and/or unforeseen delays or changes in flight schedules, adjustments may have to be made to this tour itinerary.
