Following the routes of the first expeditions to attempt the rooftop of the world, through the most spectacular section of Tibet.

"We came to a halt, completely overwhelmed with astonishment. The sight of Everest wiped every thought from our minds. We forgot about rocky deserts and all our longings for other forms of beauty. We uttered neither questions nor comments, but simply stood there and gazed."

With these words, George Leigh Mallory described his impressions on 25 June 1921, at the mouth of the Rongbuk Valley. During the third British expedition, in 1924, Mallory was to lose his life along Andrew Irvine. more... (exclusive)

And we have another trek to Lhakpa Ri (new) as an extension

 

The savage & remarkable east face overlooking the solitary Kangshung Valley was observed for the first time by Mallory during the exploratory expedition of 1921.

"Early morning mist lifted quickly and the first snowy peaks appeared. We also had a good view back towards where we had come from. We set off early and rested near the river before the steep ascent onto the terrace above the Kama valley and into the Kangshung valley, where we were to trek for the following 2 days. The meadow floor was carpeted with flowers, with dewdrops glistening in the bright morning sun. The sun's reflection on the river, the array of colours, the snowy peaks in the background, these were experiences I shall never forget" - says Edwin Gruber who organized his trek with us on June 2003.

Yet again we will explore the great valleys around the Everest.

A pilgrimage around the mountain that is sacred to four different faiths.
 
It is a great adventure in history, in landscape and in the faiths of Asia. In the heart of the highest mountains on earth, Mount Kailash rises to an altitude of 6,714 metres, and is one of the most elegant and entrancing peaks in Tibet. For the traveller, this is a dream destination, almost inaccessible until just a few decades ago because of bad roads, political prohibitions, and the presence of bandits. But no Westerner has ever felt lonely in the area around Mount Kailash.

TIBET OVERLAND TOURS

On this trip, we will follow the Friendship Highway through some of the most amazing landscape on Earth. We'll pass small Tibetan settlements, nomadic herdsmen wandering across the wide arid plains and awe-inspiring mountain peaks. Equally as fascinating is the wealth of cultural interest and we will have plenty of opportunity to explore this side of Tibet, both in Lhasa and the other towns.   more...
