Short Friendship Highway Overland Tibet tour – 4 Nights 5 Days allows you explore Dream Tibet and its cultural and historical sites in detail, though it is a very shortest tour and involves long drive about 7-8 hours day. The trip of Short Friendship Highway Overland Tibet tour starts from the Zhangmu/Kodari border or Kerung/Gyirong Border Crossing and concludes following the itinerary of Friendship highway in Tibet.  You will visit Shigatse, the second-largest city of Tibet where the stunning Panchen Lama’s Tashilompo Monastery is located. After the exploration of Shigatse city, you will proceed ahead to Lhasa via Gyantse exploring Khumbun and Phalkhor monasteries. Lhasa is the city of sunshine and it holds numbers of cultural and historical sites such as Potala Palace, Norbulingka Palace, Jokhang Temple, Drepung Monasteries and etc.


Due to the devastating earthquake happened in April 2105, we are no longer able to operate tours via the Kodari border as the Kodari border is yet to be opened until further notification. However, tours are being run via Lhasa and Kerung/Gyirong border. Please check HW’s recent blog to know the recent updates.
