It doesn't need to be that way, for me when you got around to it; it was a straightforward matter of booking an overland visit from Kathmandu!
The visit withdrew from Lhasa to Kathmandu in the early hours of a winter morning. As the sun rose we were well out of the city and into the wide open of Nepal and heading for the outskirt. Miles and miles of terraced slopes, green valleys and segregated towns spread before us and out yonder our first enticing perspectives of the snow topped Himalaya, a range we would need to cross to get to Lhasa.

Most towns have a Cloister and stronghold which still stay as sublime confirmations of design.

From the statures of a 5500 meter street pass we looked down one path to the lake and the other to the valley that hosts Lhasa. Here is likewise a decent place to ride a yak, yet far excessively icy for a can break so ensure you pee at bring down elevation, else you'll be snapping icicles off!!
