A 4×4 Tibet Tour is the best way for you to truly experience the incredible beauty of Tibet

Tibet, the “Roof of the World” is truly most travelers a once in a lifetime opportunity. Besides being located in some of the most rugged terrain, traveling there was until very recently forbidden to all but the luckiest travelers. For this reason, the image of Tibet today remains as one of the mysterious and compelling places in the world.

This your chance for a once in a lifetime adventure to personally drive the one of the most incredible roads in the world, the iconic Friendship Highway. You’ll personally drive a Toyota Land Cruiser through some of the most scenic views on earth of incredible 8,000 meter mountain peaks while twisting and turning through switchbacks that overlook 17,000 foot drops. By the end of the trip, you’ll have mastered one of toughest roads on earth and be feasting your eyes upon perhaps your next challenge, the foot of the Mt. Everest Base Camp.

Day 1

Arrive in Kunming in China  

There is a reason why even today, Tibet maintains such a mysterious reputation because it isn’t easy to get there. Any trip there requires a lot of preparation and patience. We begin our Tibet trip from Kunming, a charming mountainous city in Southwest China and hub for many international flights. Be sure your flight arrives early as you’ll need a Chinese Driving Permit to be allowed to drive in the in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you have everything you need as long as you show up on time!

Day 2

Kunming - Lhasa

We hope you enjoyed your brief stay in Kunming because now we begin our Tibet expedition. We arrive in Lhasa which has been the capital of Tibet for over one thousand years and its name translates to “Place of the Gods.” This is your first taste of high altitude life as the city rests comfortably at 3650 meters above sea level. So it’s a good time to get used to the high life and relax so that you are ready tomorrow’s adventure!

Day 3


Today we will journey around the incredible city of Lhasa. With so much to do and see, it’s hard to even know where to begin on our Tibet trip! We will begin the day with the Potala Palace which is the hallmark of the old Tibetan lifestyle. From here we will head to the Jokhang Temple, which is over 1300 years old and one of the holiest site in Tibetan Buddhist. From here, we will head over to the Sera Monastery, which is one of the the centers of the Buddhist Faith. No Tibet tour is complete without going to this special monastery. Here you can see monks debate and question the sacred Buddhist scriptures and try to solve some of life’s toughest mysteries.

Day 4

Lhasa - Shigatse

271 Km - 5h of riding

By now, you should be itching to get behind the wheel and today we will embark on the Friendship Highway. Although the drive is long, it is the most beautiful in Tibet and will take across the Kamba Pass and give us views of Lake Yamdrok Tso. This lake, is revered for its unique turquoise waters and reputed to have mystical properties. Our Tibet expedition will truly test your driving skills. The road will have us winding back and forth many switchbacks as we head up to 5000 meters in altitude and pass the incredible Karola Glacier. Soon we will be on our way back down as we wind our way into Shigatse, Tibet’s second largest city where will spend the rest of the day exploring before getting ready for our next day on the road.

Day 5

Five Mountains in a Day

237 Km - 4h30 of riding

As we jump back on the roads of Tibet, get ready for one of the most memorable days of your life. Today, we will cross the peak of Gyatso La Pass and Gawalu Pass ascending from 5,000 to 8,000 meters where you will be able to see five different mountains as we drive through some incredible mountain roads. By the end of the day, you’ll be able to see the Golden Everest Peak during sunset before we head to Tingiri for the night. Don’t worry we will be back to see the peak for sunrise as we continue our Tibet trip!

At an altitude of 17,060 feet, you will have a once in a lifetime view of the northeast ridge and summit of the world’s most famous mountain.

Day 8

Shigatse - Lhasa

Before we head back on the Friendship Highway and continue our Tibet tour, you will have a chance to visit Tashilhunpo Monasteries which was one of the few places in all of the country to escape the turbulent times of the cultural revolution and truly maintain its historic charm. You’’ be able to see the massive statue of the Future Buddha, which is the largest gilded state on earth! Then we will head back to Lhasa for a final farewell dinner to celebrate our journey. In the morning we visit the Tashilhunpo Monastery before we start the drive back to Lhasa. One of the few monasteries in Tibet to weather the stormy seas of the Cultural Revolution, Tashilhunpo remains relatively unscathed. The huge golden statue of the Future Buddha is the largest gilded statue in the world. After we reach Lhasa, we take rest for a while before we all meet for the final felicitation dinner.

It’s time to say bye to our Tibet expedition and head back towards Kunming.
