What's included in this trip
Tibet Unplugged SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Kathmandu is like an alluring whirlwind of sights, sounds, smells and colours. Almost overwhelming, its charm and history peaks out from the most unexpected places rendering most visitors enamoured.
Colourful, historic and with a deeply fascinating culture, the holy city of Lhasa is situated in a small valley high on the Tibetan Plateau.
Gyantse is an agricultural town set in the Nyang-chu Valley, famed for its wool carpets and the Pelkhor Chode Temple complex.
Sitting at the confluence of two rivers, Shigatse is a bustling, dusty city home to some fantastic monasteries, fortresses and palaces.
Located in a valley off the Friendship Highway, Sakya is a small town with unique architecture and a beautiful monastery.
As one of the world's big challenges, Mount Everest evokes visions of beauty, danger, awe and triumph. Standing close to this mountain is certain to leave you breathless.
Close to Mount Everest, Tingri is often used as a base on the way to the mountains. Needless to say, the views from this sleepy town are spectacular.
Clinging perilously to the sheer mountainside, Zhangmu separates Tibet from Nepal by a cascading river that spans the famous Friendship Bridge.
With the two sister cities of Bhaktapur and Lalitpur (Patan) close by, Kathmandu has a wealth of sights to explore, markets to discover and places to relax in.

Tibet Unplugged, May 2014
Leader was great - positive, very approachable and a very good person, but difficult to understand. Much information was lost due to his lack of speaking English clearly.

Tibet Unplugged, April 2014
This is a very expensive tour for the what you get in terms of tour guide information and accomodation. However the itinary and organisation were good. We had 2 tour guides subcontracted by Intrepid. Such a shame we could not get further information while travelling long distance. Nepalese guide had good knowledge and understanable english level while it was very difficult to understand the tibetan one. It would have been good to receive general information about country, culture, religion...and not entering too much in details while going to Monastries
