Tibet And Nepal

Tibet and Nepal

Overland Journey from Tibet to Nepal is one of the most favorite overland journeys for many Travelers. Many Travelers will travel to China, take train or flight to Tibet and finally will enjoy the beautiful overland journey towards Nepal through the Zhangmu border but it has been closed since April 2015 due to the earthquake at Nepal which has affected many areas at the Border.

After the closing of Nepal border Zhangmu, Tibet Autonomous Region Central has focused on opening the Kyirong border for local trades and Chinese Travelers to Nepal but now the good news is on August 28th there is already confirmation that Kyirong border to Nepal will be also available to travel for all the Travelers including Asian and Westerners. 

Kyirong is one of the hidden beauty regions in Tibet, once many great Tibetan masters used to meditate near Kyirong including Maha Guru Milarepa, Drak kar Taso meditation cave of Jetsun Milarepa can be seen on the way to Kyirong.

Kyirong is rich in Nature, beautiful white snow mountains, peaceful green forest and Phikutso Lake, which can be seen on the way to Kyirong. 

The overland journey from Lhasa to Kyirong border will be around 8-9 days including the days in Lhasa and Mount Everest Base Camp, if not including Mount Everest base camp it will be around 6-7 days. 

This is a great news for all the Travelers to enjoy the beautifully hidden natures in Tibet and also a great way to travel to Nepal.

  • 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!!
