There are a variety of tours you can consider when entering Tibet from Nepal. Some options include trekking and visits to more remote parts of the country, which take a bit longer to get to. These tours can take from 15 to 30 days and can cost considerably more. The best option that remains is Kathmandu to Lhasa overland tour in group tour across what we call the ‘Friendship Highway’ in Tibet from Kathmandu to Lhasa. The Sino-Nepal Friendship Bridge connects Kodari of Nepal with Zhangmu of Tibet. The entire trip will take seven to eight days and give you two full days in the city of Lhasa. On the eighth day, you’ll fly back to Kathmandu.
Our 7 Nights/8 Days Kathmandu – Lhasa overland tour is a budget way to see the best Tibet has to offer. If you are planning your trip from Nepal better drive in and fly out from Lhasa. Your trip begins with a scenic 4-5 hour drive to Kodari, near the Nepal-China border. After crossing the Friendship bridge you head to the town of Nyalam situated 40 km from the Nepalese border. From Nyalam, a pleasant drive takes you across a barren and remote Tibetan landscape before you stop in Lhasa.
Two full days in Lhasa gives you plenty of time to visit all the popular places there, including the Potala Palace, Jokhang temple, and the Norbulingka palaces. These monuments are places of great cultural and religious significance to Tibetan Buddhists. Among these places, the rich history and grandeur of the Potala Palace are unparalleled as it continues to dominate the skyline of this holy city.

I heard of Nepal Peace Treks through a good friend of mine, who went trekking in the Annapurna and the overland Tibet Tour. She was very pleased of the services provided by Nir Lama and his company when me and my mother and my dear friend decided to go to Tibet. He really helped us with all the arrangements. Since the political situation in Tibet is really unstable, it is difficult to organize the overland tour from Kathmandu to Lhasa. Bbecause the Chinese authorities closed the boundaries two weeks before we were suppose to leave for Tibet, Nir us has proposed an alternative program. Fully developed with guides and porters but we were very fortunate that we still could go to Tibet and that the Chinese opened the borders again. Nir thank you so much, the whole trip very well organized. Nir has arranged the visas, provide us with a good jeep to get past along the Nepalese border country, a special guide for the border formalities and he arranged us the best Tibetan guide and driver. We had to not worry and just enjoy the journey. My mother was very content. One last time, we want to thank you

Everest Base Camp Trek (on June 2012)
“Peace Nepal Treks provided an excellent service for our Everest Base Camp expedition. Our guide, Prem, was knowledgeable about Nepal’s history and culture (especially the Sherpa culture) and had kept us constantly entertained with his sense of humour. We enjoyed wonderful views throughout the trek and although we had no prior experience, our trek was planned in such a way that allowed us to recover sufficiently each day to complete the next day’s journey and eventually achieve our goal of reaching Base Camp and Kalapathar. Nir also provided support from Kathmandu at timely intervals. We made many awesome memories on this journey. Kudos to Peace Nepal Treks, Nir, and Prem!”
