Leaving Lhasa northward to Namtso Lake, you can see stylistic northern Tibet nomadic views with flocks of yaks and sheep grazing on endless pastures, the huge snowcapped Nyinchen Tangula ranges extends all the way till the holy lake. With impressive Nyingchen Tangula Mountain in background, the holy Sky Lake looks more magnificent. The highlights of this tour then will be the sunset and sunrise view over the Namtso Lake; also on the way back, one can choose to dip himself into the most famous hot spring in Tibet under the snowy mountain to relax.

Dear Budget Tibet Tour team,
I have been dreaming a long time of visiting Tibet, but sadly I neither have a big budget, nor a travel group. I wanted to ask you if it was possible to add me to one of your group tours in may. I would be really, really grateful if such thing could work!
Best wishes,
