Marvel at the peaks of Everest from the window of your light aircraft as your experienced pilot swoops to within 200 meters of the icy cliff faces.
This is the closest you'll get to the top of the world without decades of experience as a mountaineer, and you'll score even better photos without risking severe frostbite. Your scenic flight leaves from Nepal's colorful major city of Kathmandu, where the main Durbar Square serves up a maze of opulent palaces, ancient temples and elaborate statues in a social melting pot. Beforehand, you'll visit Tibet's spiritual and political capital of Lhasa where you'll explore stunning monasteries and temples, including Potala Palace that was rebuilt by the Fifth Dalai Lama in 1645. And starting in Beijing, you'll encounter the region's other great man-made marvels as you tour a mountainous section of the Great Wall, and the stunning Summer Palace.
This trip leads to some of the most remote and spectacular places on earth, however you'll never need give up big-city convenience as you rest and recharge in a collection of international hotels. Your experienced local guides are by your side at all times to guarantee your safety while providing a strong sense of the spiritually-significant monuments and breath-taking panoramas you'll experience throughout this once-in-a-lifetime trip.

How Kensington Began
Kensington Tours is the inspiration of intrepid explorer and Royal Geographic Society Fellow Jeff Willner. His thirst for travel stems from growing up in Africa where his parents worked for most of his childhood, and where he discovered the richness of global cultures. A veteran of global expeditions to over 70 countries, he has criss-crossed the continents to experience the extraordinary. During these years, Jeff realized the vast difference between a package tour and personal discovery - where deep knowledge and personal attention of a local guide can turn a trip into an experience.
It is from these roots that Jeff began building his vision for Kensington Tours, drawing on his years with McKinsey & Company and Wharton. Led by a team of destination experts with real in-country experience (not a call center) and a commitment to rethinking the way you travel - it has resulted in an award-winning travel company that spans the globe. What does this mean for you? It's simple: extraordinary travel experiences at unrivaled value.
