Suggestions/partners for Kathmandu-Lhasa hitchhiking
Jun 25, 2013 08:17
guestLeonieLY Hey there,

We are two girls planning on a 10-day overland trip(±2 days) from Kathmandu to Lhasa starting from 9th July (possibly by hitchhiking).

Any suggestions for female hitchhikers on this route during the monsoon season? We know that the road would be very rough with possible danger of landslide on the Nepali side. We wonder if the road condition would be relatively better on the Tibetan side? We are also informed that hitchhiking in this region is normally not free. Then how much does it roughly cost, say from Xigaze to Gyantse (approximately 90km) by truck? Is there anything particular we should bear in mind?

Wondering if anyone would like to partner up or give us a ride for some part our journey (particularly for the trip to the Everest Base Camp-China side)? We are not that much trekking persons, but we do enjoy exploring relatively un-touristed regions and experiencing local culture very much. See our rough itinerary below:

07.09 Kathmandu-114km-Khasa(Nepal-China border)-45km-Nyalam
07.10 Nyalam-210km-(Tingri)-Everest Base Camp
07.11 Everest Base Camp-100km-Xigaze
07.12 Xigaze-Gyantse
07.13 Gyantse-Yamdrok Lake-Lhasa
07.14 Lhasa
07.15 Lhasa
07.16 Lhasa-180km-Nyainqntanglha Mountains-61km-Namtso Lake
07.17 Namtso Lake-Lhasa
