If you come to Tibet to see great views of the Himalayas or any other crazy peaks, you have to start after the rain has stopped. You can walk during the rainy season as most of the showers in Tibet occur at night. However, Waterproof clothing and shoes would be nice.

Kishor from the Nepal Tour & Trekking P. Ltd was very helpful, and from the moment he picked me up at the airport with a traditional garland of welcome flowers, I was well taken care of. The visa procedures for Tibet and Bhutan might have been a tedious affair, but Kishor and his team made it as easy as possible for me. Our guides in Tibet and Bhutan were very informative, and the proposed itineraries were perfect. Finally, the welcome dinner we enjoyed in Kathmandu, and it was delicious and unforgettable.
The most unforgettable part of the vacation was a walk around Barkhor Square in Lhasa, where we saw people on pilgrimage from different parts of Tibet. The people were amicable and even came to shake our hands and greet us. They invited us to a small temple to spin their prayer wheels and sing with the locals, which was a magical experience. Seeing Everest from the Tibetan side was also a highlight.
