PHYSICAL RATING (Gentle)
This trip is operated at a leisurely pace but there could be some standing around and queuing, especially if you want to join the pilgrims on the hillside at Drepung for the unfurling of the Thanka. The Potola has around 430 steps to climb. While in Tibet you will be at high altitude which can make you short of breath.
Minimum fitness level required:
To be able to carry your own bag, if required
Walk up and down stairs
Walk a short distance over uneven ground
Travellers with additional needs are welcome to contact us to discuss your particular requirements.
Refer to our FAQ's page for information on obtaining a Nepal Visa. Your Tibetan Visa is included and obtained by our providers in Nepal.
