Compared with flight trip, the Beijing-Tibet train journey gives you time to appreciate the diverse terrains of China and acclimatize to the altitude in Tibetan Plateau. After visiting Forbidden City, Summer Palace, and Great Wall, you can have a free day in Beijing to explore this metropolis on your own. After about 40-hour train ride, you will arrive at Lhasa, the capital of Tibet.
At first, you will visit iconic attractions in Lhasa like Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple, Drepung and Sera Monastery. Then, you will head for Sino-Nepal boarding pass, Gyirong Port. Along the way, you can visit the sacred Yamdrok Lake, Kumbum Stupa, and Tashilunpo Monastery, and stay overnight at Everest Base Camp to appreciate the sunset and sunrise over the peak of Mt. Everest. After passing Gyirong Port, you will meet your Nepali guide and visit Swayambhunath, Pashupatinath, and Bouddhanath, as well as Durbar Square in Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur.
