This is an early indication of NZCFS most adventurous tour to date. Total 28 days, offered in three sections. Draft of travels:
PART A: Days 1-6, Northern Vietnam- Hanoi, Halong Bay, Sapa
PART B: Days 7- 23, Vietnamese border to Lhasa. This is the core of this adventure, 16 days travel from the south of Yunnan to the south-east of Tibet and Lhasa. Hekou (border with Vietnam) – Yuangang terraced fields – Jianshui – Kunming – Lijiang – Shangrila……Lhasa
At this stage it is uncertain if the travel from Shangrila to Lhasa can be achieved overland, or a flight is required due to changing policy of travel for foreigners. The flight is the most certain mode of travel: then a round trip of land travel from Lhasa to the southeast of Tibet and return will be substituted for the direct route. Further information of this will be available as soon as possible.
PART C: Days 23 to 28 Lhasa to Everest Base Camp return. Lhasa-Gyantse-Shigatse- Everest Base Camp-Shigatse-Lhasa
At this stage of uncertainties, we seek and expression of interest only. Part A and C are offered as optional add ons to the core Part B, please indicate if you are interested in Part A and/or Part C as add-ons. No commitment at this stage!
