High Road to Tibet

This itinerary has been updated from an overland border crossing into Nepal, to include a flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu to end the tour. Damage to the Tibet-Nepal highway due to the 2015 earthquake has left roads closed, meaning a flight is currently the only way to travel between the two countries. It is unknown when the highway will reopen and no overland travel will be possible between these two destinations for the foreseeable future.

Arrive at any time.

Take an orientation walk in Durbar Square before visiting the Sisterhood of Survivors Project, a grassroots organization. Meet some of the women and learn how to make Nepalese momos (dumplings) before enjoying an authentic local lunch. In the evening, enjoy free time to explore the fascinating city.
