Have you ever dreamt of exploring a place where the sky touches the mountains and spirituality fills the air? Then, it’s time to head to Tibet and explore its hidden gems. This remote and majestic land is full of wonders waiting to be discovered.

But planning a trip to Tibet is not something you can just do in a snap and on your own. The place is quite unique and it takes proper guidance to truly experience its beauty. Here are some of our tour packages in Tibet Shambhala Adventure that will take you to the heart of Tibet and unlock its true wonders.

Mount Kailash group tour

First on our list of favorite Tibet tour packages is the Mount Kailash group tour. This tour starts and ends in Lhasa, with all members of the group coming together from different countries. You can come directly to Lhasa or fly to any city in mainland China before continuing to Lhasa.

The Mount Kailash group tour includes sightseeing in the holy city of Lhasa, admiring the stunning Yamdrok Lake and Noejing Kangsang’s Karola glacier, exploring the ancient town of Gyantse and its Kubum Pagoda stupa, and visiting Shigtase (the capital of the Tsang region). Mount Kailash itself is known as Gang Ti-Se in Tibetan, meaning “Precious Snow Mountain”, and is informally referred to as Gang Ringpoche or “Mount of Swastikas.” This sacred mountain holds significance for Buddhists, Bon followers, Hindus, and Jews.

The main highlight of the Mount Kailash group tour is the three-day trek around Mount Kailash, where you will get up close and personal with this sacred mountain. The most challenging part of this trek, however, is crossing the Drolmala Pass at an elevation of over 5600m. You will also visit Zutrulphuk, a small monastery and cave with a history dating back over a thousand years. This is the final stop on your trek around Mount Kailash and holds great spiritual significance.

Yamdrok lake trekking

Next up, we’ve prepared an experience that’s a little closer to the heart of nature yet bursting with culture. It begins with soaking yourself in Lhasa’s spiritual atmosphere, exploring ancient monasteries like Drepung and Sera, and marveling at the architectural wonders of the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple. These spots are recognized worldwide and hold spots on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Doesn’t that already sound amazing? But it only gets better.

The hike towards Yamdrok Lake is where the magic really happens. Stretching over two days, this trek will bring you face-to-face with untouched nature, from wild animals like blue sheep and antelopes to the pastoral life of yaks and sheep grazing. The Jeshul La pass (which stands over 5000m high) will reward you with a breathtaking panorama of Yamdrok Lake’s azure waters set against the backdrop of Kurla Kangri’s snow-draped peaks.

Your Yamdrok Lake trek ends in a peaceful overnight camp on the lake’s shores. The loop tour around the lake the following day is a deep dive into the heart of Tibet’s pastoral and nomadic traditions, framed by the stunning vistas of surrounding villages and mountains. When it comes time to return to Lhasa, you’ll carry with you a profound connection to the land and its people.

Tibet classical tour

This tour is a deep dive into Tibet’s heart and soul. We kick things off in Lhasa, visiting some spots that will definitely make your jaw drop. You will get to walk around the Potala Palace or mingle in the busy lanes of Bharkor Bazar.

Then, we hit the road to Tsetang, which is about 160 km south of Lhasa. This place is where Tibet’s pulse beats the strongest, with the Yarlung Valley adding its own kind of magic. The scenery here is courtesy of the mighty Brahmaputra River, which snakes its way from far Western Tibet near Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar. And Tsetang? This cradle of Tibet is home to highlights like the Samye Monastery and Yumbu Lhakang, to name a few.

Next up, the tour will lead you to Gyantse, which played a key role in the trade routes between India and Tibet and is today known for its vast farming lands. Here, you’ll step into the Palchoe Monastery and the Kubum Pagoda Stupa. The stories here span over 600 years, with sacred statues and relics that echo tales from the past.

The tour continues to Shigatse, which is home to the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery — the heartland of the Panchen Lama and the largest monastery around these parts. Simply put, this tour is a tribute to Tibet’s cultural and historical legacy that will leave you spellbound!

Each of these Tibet tour packages is designed to offer an immersive experience that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Send us a message today or explore more of our Tibet tour package options to start planning your ultimate adventure in the Land of the Snows.
