Itinerary
Day 1 Lhasa Arrival
Your experienced private driver and guide will be waiting for you in the airport. Have a rest and set back in a comfortable  non-smoking car. Enjoy beautiful scenery on the way to your hotel. Your guide will assist you with hotel check-in.

Nearly all tourists entering Tibet experience altitude sickness. For some the effects are strong, but for most it is just an inconvenience. If you need any help, you can ask your guide at any time.

Good to know:
We suggest you book a morning flight to Lhasa because it’s more reliable and arrive at Lhasa on time. At the same time, you will have more time to rest and acclimatize.

You may have a sleeping problem because of high altitude on the first night. So reserving more time to rest is important.

Day 2 Visit Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery and Norbulingka
Today you will visit two top monasteries Sera Monastery and Drepung Monastery. Sera Monastery is famous for its monks’ daily debates. The debate about Buddhist doctrines is held in the monastery daily, Tuesday to Sunday at 15:00. Visitors need to watch the debate quietly.

Meaning "Jeweled Garden", Norbulingka is the former summer palace for the Dalai Lama. It was constructed by the 7th Dalai Lama. Nowadays, it’s a great public park to experience local people’s life.

Drepung Monastery is well known for large-scale Shonton Festival, held at the beginning of August every year. Shonton festival is a great chance to see local festival culture. Have lunch at Kechu Hotel, famous for its Tibetan and Nepalese food.

Good to know:
Drepung Monastery is considered a live pilgrimage monastery, and is famous for its murals and the chance it offers to see the monks’life.

Day 3 See Jokhang Temple and the Potala Palace
Jokhang Temple is the heart of Tibetan Buddhist culture. It’s the final destination on the pilgrimage way. Surrounded by Barkhor Street, you will see many local people pray as the streets are thronged with pilgrims and visitors.

Barkhor Street, is called “the window of Tibet”. Take part in the circle clockwise around Jokhang Temple with prayer wheels, and watch the pilgrims prostrating themselves near the front gate. Explore local life by yourself.

Have lunch at Steak House Restaurant.

Day 4 See highlights in Gyantse and Yomdrok Lake
In Shigatse you will visit the Palgor Chorten, a different style of monastery. Unique constructions give it the reputation as the lord of Tibetan stupas. Buildings, sculpture and mural paintings are very impressive.

In summer, it attracts numerous swans and gulls. Visit Tashilunpo Kloster, representative of Tibetan architecture ofn the Last Tibetan Spirit School.

 Altitude Sickness

Before your trip, ask yourdoctorfor suggestions, and bring some medicine in case. The most popular altitude medicine with foreigners is acetazolamide / Diamox.

The first two days after arriving in Tibet, we suggest visitors keep warm, not take a bath, smoke as little as possible, and do not drink alcohol. Drink plenty of water (>4 litres) before going and at altitude , and eat lots of vegetables and carbohydrates. Slow down your movement, even if you feel energetic. Moving slowly is the best way to avoid mountain sickness. If you are ill after entering Tibet, go to see a doctor as soon as possible. There are doctors in major hotels in Lhasa, and you can call your tour guide for help at any time. We offer a free oxygen bag in the car.

Lhasa is at an altitude of 3,650 meters (12,000 ft). You may experience further altitude sickness in the Potala Palace and Drepung Monastery with higher altitudes. Lake Yomdrok’s altitude is4,441 m (14,570 ft). And Shigatse has an altitude of 3,840 meters (12,598 ft).

 What to Pack

Seek medical advice about altitude effects and pack any medicine you might need. Sunglasses, snow glasses, hat, lip balm, sun block, walking boots, and down jackets are recommended.

 Getting There and Returning

Flights:We suggest you take a flight arriving in Lhasa in the morning. Morning flights are more likely to be on time. A flight takes around 2 hours from Chengdu, Xi’an, Chongqing, or Kunming, or around 5 hours from Beijing and Shanghai.

Trains: There are direct trains to Lhasa from Beijing and Shanghai, however travelers and travel agencies struggle to get tickets. The journey is extremely long (over 40 hours). The best scenery begins about 10 hours from Lhasa.

We suggest you take a train out of Tibet, or take a train from Xining or Xi’an to Lhasa, as there is a higher possibility of successful booking. It takes about 25 hours from Xining or Lanzhou. We can book a soft berth compartment if you don’t want to share a compartment with others.

Please feel free to ask your trip advisor to make itinerary changes and even extend your tour while you’re planning it. We also offer tours to other parts of Tibet, China and Nepal. You can add 2 days for Mount Everest or 3 days for Katmandu for an extension. You can start your journey from Lhasa or Nepal.

Transport

Private comfortable car/van and experienced, careful local drivers ensure the road conditions in Lhasa will be as small a problem as possible. The journeys to some parts of Tibet are bumpy on rugged roads. Some roads are strictly limited to speeds of 30km/h (20 mph). Our drivers drive carefully and slowly. The longest drive commonly undertaken is the 7–9-hour journey to Mt. Everest Base Camp.
