My wife and I embarked on the Overland Tour to Tibet with an extension to Everest Base Camp, and it was a trip of a lifetime! The landscapes were breathtaking, and our Tibetan guide, Tenzin, was knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about his culture. He shared so many insights into the Tibetan way of life and Buddhism. Nepal Hiking Pvt. Ltd. made sure every part of the tour was well-organized, from accommodations to transport. The highlight was definitely the sunrise over Everest. It’s a must-do for adventure lovers!

Recently completed the Overland Tour to Tibet including Everest Base Camp. Our Tibetan guide, Lobsang, was excellent, with a great sense of humour and lots of patience. The landscapes and the cultural exposure were unparalleled. The only downside was the bumpy roads at times, but the overall experience was spectacular. The care with which Lobsang handled our group and explained the Tibetan traditions was remarkable. I learned so much and felt truly immersed in Tibetan culture!

I highly recommend the Tibet Overland tour with Nepal Hiking. Our guide, Sonam, was outstanding, ensuring everyone was comfortable and engaged. He had an incredible ability to tell stories that brought the history of each site, like the Potala Palace and Rongbuk Monastery, to life. The drive through the Tibetan plateau and the visit to Everest Base Camp were awe-inspiring. Everything was flawlessly arranged, from permits to the accommodation. This tour company goes above and beyond!
