Short Holiday at Lhasa

We did wonderful trekking experience to Annapurna Base Camp with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. When we came back to Kathmandu from Trek, we decided to have short Lhasa tour. Everything was managed by Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. The trip was really memorable and awesome. We could get many problems while traveling to Tibet if we did not use NGT.
This time we did not have enough time so we did short trip. We will have next holiday to Tibet with NGT.
We would like to thank Nepal Guide Team for operating perfect holiday to Annapurna Base Camp and Tibet Short tour. 
Greeting from Vienna
