Sichuan-Tibet-Qinghai 15 Days

Sichuan-Tibet: Highway begins at Chengdu, Sichuan and ends at Lhasa, Tibet. It extends via Ya`an and Kangding to Xinduqiao, where the road becomes crotched. The north way runs via Gantse, Dege, Qamdo to Bamda, where the south way joins in. The road goes on via Baxoi, Ranwu, Bomi, Nyingchi ,covering a distance of 2412km, and finally reaches Lhasa. Drivers prefer the south way because it is shorter ( 2149km ) and its average altitude is lower. 
Mt. Everest:Mount Qomolangma, also called Mt. Everest, is the highest peak in the world. Its Tibetan meaning of Goddess the Third adds more mysterious color and magic power to the subject. As a result, it has intrigued all kinds of people since it was first discovered. Pilgrims trek long distances to present a pious worship, climbing enthusiasts run great risks to challenge its high altitude and the common tourists also yearn for a reverent look at this holy peak. 
Yamdroktso:On the old road between Gyantse (4040m) and Lhasa, the dazzling Yamdroktso (4441m) can be seen from the summit of the Kamba-la pass (5030m ). In clear weather, the lake is a fabulous shade of deep turquoise. Leaving Yamdroktso is as spectacular as arriving, since you have to cross the 5045m Karola, with its awesome roadside views of the Nojin Kangtsang Glacier. 
Namsto Lake:Namsto Lake is the highest lake in the world and is 4,718 meters above sea level. It is 72 kilomters long from east to west and 30 kilometers wide from south to north. It has an area of 1,940 square kilometers. Some 60 kilometers to the northwest of Damxung County seat, it is one of the three holy lakes in Tibet and receives high respects among the local people. On the Tibetan year of sheep, pilgrims from faraway come here to walk around the lake. It takes more than 10 days to circle the lake once.
