Bhrikuti Mandap, Nepal
This extraordinary journey sees us cross the vast expanses of China as we immerse ourselves in the diverse cultures of the Middle Kingdom and travel through a once forbidden land. The journey takes us from the bustling capital Beijing across to the Terracotta Warriors of Xian from there we make our way to the Tibetan grasslands where monks and nomads coexist and we then come face to face with the pandas of Chengdu. From here we make the journey through to Tibet where we unlock the secrets of the monasteries and explore the amazing mountains across the roof of the world. From exploring Lhasa we continue across the arid Tibetan Plateau to reach Gyantse and on to Shigatse, home to the famous Tashilhunpo Monastery. The roads we travel are spectacular, crossing the Pang-La (Pass) to Rongphu Monastery and the base camp of the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest - one of the highlights of our trip. The final leg sees us descending through an impressive gorge and winding our way through the terraced hillsides of Nepal down to the medieval Kathmandu. The warmth and curiosity of the people make this an unforgettable journey.
