Himalaya October 23 - November 19 2011

A fantastic 4 week trip to the countries at the slope of Himalaya, Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. Going by train (Lhasa Express) during 44 hours from Beijing to Lhasa, spending 10 days in Tibet, including Mt Everest Base Camp, 8 days in Nepal and 6 days in Bhutan.

We felt the importance of the religion, and visited many monasteries. We also enjoyed the fantastic nature. The three countries (we treat Tibet as a country here) were very different concerning the nature and the people. The trip was organized by Världens resor.
