Magical Himalayan Kingdoms

After over 35 years of travelling the world, Lewie Gonsalves defines this as the trip of a lifetime (and that’s a pretty definitive comment). Journey through Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan where people are gracious, the culture is rich, spirituality is vital, and the traveller is rewarded with a taste of tradition undisturbed.

Begin in Beijing and fly up to Lhasa to spend four days exploring its atmospheric charms. Then it’s the world’s highest railway journey through breathtaking vistas down to Xining. At Chengdu, take a good look at those marvelous Giant Pandas. Fly over the Himalaya mountain range to visit ancient stupas and ornate temples in Kathmandu and search for tigers at Chitwan’s World Heritage listed preserve. In Bhutan, discover a Himalayan kingdom filled with vital Buddhist traditions and valleys dotted with monasteries and fortresses. Accommodation is in particularly beautiful and luxuriously comfortable hotels that reflect the character of each place.

Set against the most inspiring backdrop in the world, this tour will introduce you to the remarkable cultures that flourish in the shadow of the world’s highest mountain ranges. Join Lewie in a very special 50th anniversary edition of this remarkable voyage across the roof of the world!
