I did 10 days itinerary including Everest base camp and Namtso lake. It was a small group of 6 people. Amazing experience! The tour guide speak English perfectly and also have full knowledge of all the sightseeing!
My girlfriend and I chose this organization because they were the most helpful company while asking for information about Tibet. They proposed different options to make sure they please our needs!
