Expedition in Tibet is the most popular and challenging activity in Tibet, which offers superb Himalaya views, landscapes, lush valleys, ancient cities, and monasteries. As Tibet is known as "The Roof of the World" it is the land of the highest land in the world with several 6,000m peaks, 7000m peaks, and 8000m peaks. There are only three major peaks in Tibet that the Tibet Mountaineering Department has given permission for climbing; these mountains are Mt. Everest 8,848m (which can also be climbed from the Nepal side), Mt. Cho-Oyu 8,201m and Mt. Shishpangma 8,013m. These mountains are most demanded with the greatest respect and those participating in either of these climbing programs will need to be of a high standard of fitness. These giant mountains are technically difficult but any mountain over 8000m.
Expedition in Tibet offers you the journey of a lifetime; the opportunity to experience one of the most incredible cultures and landscapes that this planet has to offer. Based in Lhasa, we know the region better than anyone and, employing a mix of Tibetan and western staff, are able to provide the best on-the-ground organization and support possible.
