Day 2 Lhasa Sightseeing [B] + [D]

Today, you'll have a tour of Lhasa's cardinal landmark and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is the Potala Palace. Renowned as one of the earth's great wonders due to its extravagant architecture and the fact that it sits at an elevation of 3,700 meters, this grand palace will not disappoint you. In the afternoon, you'll pay a visit to Jokhang Temple, which is the most essential and respected religious structures in Tibet. Thick with the smell of incense and yak butter, you'll witness a multitude of prostrating pilgrims cramming out there. The temple is the masterpiece of Tibetan, Chinese and Nepalese architectural techniques. Then you'll take a stroll around Barkhor Street, the oldest bazaar in the city. After the sightseeing activities, you'll enjoy a welcoming dinner gathering with all your travel mates in the group. You will stay overnight in Lhasa.

Day 3 Lhasa Sightseeing [B]

In the morning, you'll visit the Drepung Monastery (found in 1416) on the Gambo Utse Mountain. This place was once the world's largest monastery with about 10,000 monks at its peak, and it was one of the "great three" Gelugpa schools in Lhasa. It is pleasant to walk up the hill, as it is a leisurely break from the solemn ambiance inside the halls and chapels. At the flat roof of the hillside, there are views of the entire city of Lhasa city and its distant mountains. In the afternoon, you'll have a chance to witness the famous 'Buddhism Sutra Debate' session at the Sera Monastery (founded in 1419). This session takes place at 3:00 PM every day, except on Sunday. You will stay overnight in Lhasa.

Hot Scenic Spots

Tibet lies in the north-east of the Himalayas. It is special not only for the spectacular nature scenery, also the unique local customs. For a lot of people, Tibet is remote and inaccessible. But once you are here, you would know it’s a magical place, it is alien to common experiences. The beauty of Tibet is impossible to describe in words. Stop trying to define it, come and immerse yourself in it.

Hi Daniel. We are already on our way back to Shanghai. We would like to thank you for the great trip we had. Our guide Jampa and our driver did an excellent job. They are both very recommendable! We enjoyed the trip despite the altitude discomfort we experienced during the first 3 days. Thank you!

I highly recommend this agency. I travelled with other 2 couples who booked through different agencies and they paid a lot more to have less assistance, same hotels/tour/guide/car, less flexibility and no travel insurance included.
