Upon your arrival at Lhasa Gonggar Airport, your Tibetan local guide and driver will pick you up with your name sign, and then they will transfer you to Lhasa city safely. You can spend the day exploring on your own, but be wary of the altitude. It is recommended to take it easy. Overnight at hotel in Lhasa.
The first visit in Lhasa is the vital Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple in its vicinity. Potala palace is Lhasa’s most important landmark and a wonder of Eastern architecture. Our first site of this massive structure will be a magical moment which will be remembered for your rest life time. It has been a palace since the fifth or sixth century and was once the home to the Dalai Lama. Well another visit we will take is to Jokhang Temple which locates at Barkhor Bazaar. This temple is the most revered shrine in Tibet and is constantly bustling with devout worshippers. We will also be given the opportunity to shop in Barkor Bazaar, the crowded central market in ancient section of Lhasa where the residence of many local people is. Overnight at hotel in Lhasa.
After breakfasts in hotel, we will drive to west Lhasa city section (about 11km) and give a visit to the Drepung Monastery, which was once the world’s largest monastery. Housing 10,000 monks, Drepung monastery lies hidden in between the rocky ridges which are just beyond the city. Surprisingly much of the building was left untouched many years. In the afternoon, the site we will visit is Sera Monastery, a fifteenth century sprawl of golden roofs and whitewashed walls. This well preserved monastery is located just 5km to North of Lhasa city and is home to several hundred lamas. Its famous debating activities happen around 3-4pm quite regularly every working day and we will not give it a miss. Overnight at hotel in Lhasa.
