Itinerary

Day 1: Lhasa, China

Today, you will be picked up at Lhasa Airport/Railway station and transferred to your accommodation where you will have time to get settled in.

Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure chilling in the hotel or begin your adventure by exploring the city on your own but try not to overtax yourself.

The first day’s rest is crucial to acclimatise the high altitude. Remember to drink lots of water, eat light, and not to shower if you can.

Day 2: Lhasa, China

After breakfast, head towards the Drepung Monastery that was once one of the world’s largest monasteries.

Drepung means “rice heap” in Tibetan, a reference to the great number of white monastic buildings that once stood on the hillside.

In the afternoon, you will visit another great monastery, the Sera Monastery, meaning “wild rose” in Tibetan as the hill behind was once covered with roses. Learn more about its architecture structure and Buddhism and get the chance to see monks debating. You will then be invited to a welcome dinner to introduce you to your fellows with who you are going to travel.

Day 3: Lhasa, China

Today, you will explore the most emblematic places of the city.

Start your day with the visit of the highest palace in the world, the incredible Potala Palace, with more than 3,700 meters above sea level. Reach the awesome Golden Roof and get a scenic panorama of the mountain ranges, villages, the stunning Lhasa river and the Jokhang temple.

In the afternoon, discover the spiritual centre of Tibet: the Jokhang temple which is the first built during the period of Sontsan Gambo in the 7th century. Marvel at the amazing architecture and watch devoted pilgrims praying before the monastery.

You will find the Barkhor Street around the temple, a famous local handmade crafts market where you will be able to buy some souvenirs.

So bring with you some snacks and lunch, and don’t be worry, the ride is worth it as you will get incredible views of the snow-capped mountains.

In the late afternoon, you will finally reach the Rongbuk Monastery from where you will enjoy a splendid view of Mount Everest. You will have the option to visit the Rongbuk Monastery at an extra cost (25 CNY).
