About us (Great Holidays Pvt Ltd)
We are a Tibet tour operator based in Kathmandu, Nepal's capital. Nepal boarders with Tibet and Kathmandu is the main point to enter to Tibet . There are direct flights from Kathmandu to Lhasa (Tibet's capital ). The friendship highway that runs from Kathmandu all the way to Lhasa is another popular route to enter Tibet . This drive from Kathmandu to Lhasa makes one of the world's most fascinating overland tour . Besides, visiting places like lake Manasarovar , Mt Kailash, Mt Everest base camp ( north base camp ) as well as visiting / climbing Mt Shishapangma or Mt Cho Oyu is nearer and easier from Kathmandu than from Lhasa itself . It is easier to get your visa and permits for Tibet in Kathmandu . All this makes Kathmandu the main hub to enter Tibet and allows us to serve as your local travel agent offering you the first hand information.

We run only small groups for friends/ work colleagues and families. You can have your tailor made itinerary and private departure dates. You can travel in your own pace and have a more satisfying experience.
3. Great value
Neither we wish to be an expensive company charging unreasonable price nor we wish to be the "" cheapest "" company charging unrealistically low price to get the business and end up with poor services .Over the years our philosophy has remained the same, "good services at reasonable price". Our prices are a great value for the quality we provide.
3. A local company
As a local company we are naturally more familiar with our region. The money you pay to a local company goes to the hand of needy local people and supports the local economy whereas most of the money you pay to the big travel companies at home remains with themselves. Also traveling with a local company is cheaper than with your home company.
4. Safety on the tour
Safety is an important issue while travelling in a remote and high altitude place like Tibet . We make our itineraries allowing enough time for acclimatization (adjusting your body to the high altitude). We do not reduce the number of days that are actually necessary for acclimatization, just to reduce the trip cost. We brief you well about precautions on altitude sickness. We use quality equipments for trekking and climbing trips . We provide our staffs with proper clothing and each of them are insured . You are also advised to have proper travel insurance .
5. Responsible travel
Travelling with us means travelling the eco friendly way. It is the duty of all of us to preserve this fragile natural heritage of the Himalayas. Not just the ecological aspects, we have a deep love and respect for the religion, culture and social values of the people of host community. We are equally sensitive to support local communities whichever ways possible like using local products while on the trip, employing local people or encouraging lodge owners who use renewable energies for running their business.
