There are two main ideas to keep in mind. One, pack light. Two, layer your clothes. When the sun is shining during the day, it heats up. After the sunset, it gets cold after very fast, especially at altitude. See the table below the packing list for seasonal temperatures.
Travelers clothing should be lightweight, hand-washable, breathable, and quick-drying. Shorts, mid-thigh or longer (but generally not to be worn in monasteries) Warm down jacket and Long pants
Hiking shoes, Comfortable sneaker shoes, and Breathable socks
Coordinate with your group members, as you will only need one first-aid kit. Diamox (talk to doctor)
Sunglasses and Sunblock cream Sleeping bag (If Travelers are camping or traveling to Mount Everest and Mount Kailash)
Travelers can also buy lower price clothes in Lhasa at Local Tromsikang market and use for the trip and give a gift to local shepherd or farmer to create more merit.
THE MOST POPULAR TRAVEL DESTINATION IS THE MOUNT EVEREST NORTH FACE BASE CAMP
Many Travelers might think that to travel Mount Everest North Face we need to trek but actually, that is in Nepal side South Face. From Tibet side North Face, Travelers can travel by vehicle all the way to the first base camp 5200M
I have spent many years in Mount Everest base camp decades ago, my village is around few hours drive from the base camp. Locals from my village worship Mount Everest as Chomolungma ( a Goddess) Even many of the Tibetan Sherpas (Climbers) in Tibet are from my hometown and before they climb, they worship her for blessings.
Many Travelers are traveling to Mount Everest every week from Lhasa. Most of the Travel agencies including us are arranging both private and group tours. One of the most popular group tours is the 8 days overland trip from Lhasa to Mount Everest base camp and many Travelers also ask Tibet Travelers about 8 days group tour so Tibet Travelers also arrange 8 days group tour to Mount Everest North Face Base Camp but Tibet Travelers would like to suggest the Travelers who have time to choose the 9 days or 10 days tour if possible.
Tenzin is really professional in handling my last minute knock on his door. He answered my endless questions with precision, speed, and truthfulness such that I committed to his private tour immediately. I was about to take refuge in Tibetan Buddhism. He took me to sacred places in all 4 major lineages and I could literally feel the blessing in my crown chakra during those visits. When environment was not up to my standard, he would go all his way to find the hotel people to fix them and he made himself available even late at night. He can be a good friend without losing the professionalism of the service part. This is not an ordinary trip for me. It was very difficult because of the weather and geographical condition and the food but Tenzin and the Driver both made it nice. One more thing, Tenzin doesn't waste time beating around the bush. His communication is quite Americanized in that regard and it fits my education history perfectly. I am glad that we still keep in touch and he would do prayers for my well-being. I really don't know what more one can ask for from a guide like this. Thank you Tenzin!
I highly recommend Tibet Travelers for your Tibet adventure. Tenzin, the owner of Tibet Travelers, is professional and knowledgeable. He previously worked as a porter for Mount Everest climbers and then gained experience for many years as a travel guide. He speaks English very well and has many years of experience working with western travelers. He knows how to obtain all the permits necessary to travel through Tibet and to visit Mount Everest. He can tailor your trip to your preferences. My husband and I along with our 2 kids ( ages 10 and 12) went on the 8-day EBC tour. Our children got a little bored of all the temple tours, so he organized a last minute hike that was fun and a great cultural experience. Our guide, Jigme, a local Tibetan, spoke English perfectly and was very knowledgeable about the city, temples and Tibetan culture. He and our driver were great with our children, especially my son who enjoyed their company immensely.The hotels where we stayed were very nice. Tenzin went out of his way to make sure we were happy and comfortable. If you are looking for a worry-free, well-planned Tibetan vacation, use Tibet Travelers.
My first time to Tibet. I contacted Tenzin Dhondup to ask about the tour details. he responded to my emails quickly and thoughtfully. Tenzin helped me organize the trip by arranging for the flight tickets from Chengdu to Lhasa and also Tibet permit. Tenzin is well organized, speak very good English, friendly, always helpful and gives good advice and suggestions. Tenzin met me in Lhasa at day 1 and brought me for a noodle soup and tea. After that, we went for a hike to Pabonka Monastery and we sat on the mountain enjoying the great view of Lhasa and what a lovely afternoon filled with discussions and conversations about Meditation, Life, and Buddhism. And on day 3 after my tour, I met him for shopping at local market Tromsikang and Bhakor and he even helped me to bargain the price. After that, we went for early Christmas dinner. Tibet is nice and must visit place. Its was a really great experience and good trip in Tibet. I strongly recommend Tenzin and his team. Thank you Tenzin for being my only first family in Tibet. You are such a wonderful and amazing person!!
