5 Nights 6 days Tibet tour Itinerary includes popular attractions in Lhasa, as well as day tours through the caves of Ganden Monastery and Drayerpa Cave. In Lhasa, you will visit the magnificent Potala and Norbulingka palaces, the traditional Tibetan hospital and the Barkhor Bazaar. Here you also visit some influential Tibetan monasteries such as Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery and Jokhang Temple. In Tsedang, you visit the 8th-century Samai Monastery, the first Buddhist monastery in Tibet, the Chim Phu Caves and the Yamblekhang Fort. Next day was planning to explore the primary two attractions around Lhasa, Ganden Monastery and Dryrepa Cave, the ideal location of Ganden Monastery and the mysterious charm of Drapepa Cave.
You reach Gonggar Airport in Lhasa by a direct flight from Nepal or with the Chinese mainland. If you choose to fly from Nepal, you must take advantage of the hour-long flight in the Himalayas, which is considered one of the most beautiful flights in the world. It takes you to Everest, Kanchenjunga and other Himalayan peaks and glaciers. If you travel to Lhasa via mainland China, you can go from all major Chinese cities or take the railway line to Lhasa. Upon arrival in Lhasa, our representative will take you to your reserved hotel in Tedong, where you are advised to enjoy and rest properly.
After early breakfast, you start your road trip to Lhasa via Samye monastery. The first monastery in Tibet is the Samye monastery in the southern part of Lhasa on the north bank of the Yarung Sangpo River, known as Trisan Detson, the 38th king of Tibet and Guru Rinpoche. Samye monastery is a major attraction and one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Tibet. Then you will head to Chim Phu Nunnery, the opening of the Chim Phu caves. From there, it takes four hours to get to the main cave and back. It is practically impossible to visit them because all the caves are not in the same place. They are spread over the upper valley. So you only visit a few caves and return to the nun. Then continue to Lhasa.
After breakfast, you start a visit to Lhasa. Today is the day when you visit the magnificent palaces of Potala and Norbulingka. The Potala Palace, built in the 17th century, offers breathtaking views of the entire city and houses the private quarters of the Dalai Lama, many large halls and shrines. Norbulingka Palace is the Summer Palace, and the houses of the Dalai Lama are considered to be the most extensive artificial gardens in Tibet. You then visit the traditional Tibetan hospital, which is at the heart of the treatment, education, research and production of Tibetan Shadham.
After breakfast, drive towards to Gandon Monastery at the top of the Wangbur Mountains in Lhatse County, 57 km east of Lhasa. It is the oldest of the six Gelug monasteries in Tibet and one of the "Big Three". The Gandon Monastery has many magnificent and delicate sculptures. In the afternoon, you visit the cave of Drayerpa in the beautiful valley with breathtaking landscapes. There are more than 30 caves for Lamas who want to meditate in a tranquil setting. In the evening, return to Lhasa and spend the night.
After breakfast, you will visit Drepung Monastery, Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery, and Barkhor Bazaar. The 14th-century Drepung Monastery is said to have protected 10,000 monks in the past, but so far only a few hundred. The history, culture and religious beliefs of the Tibetan people are very concentrated in this magnificent monastery. Sera Monastery is a preserved monastery with whitewashed walls and golden ceilings. Another essential sacred place that reveals the deepest secrets of Tibetan Buddhism is the Jokhang Temple. You will continue to go to Barkhor Bazaar. With the many open stands, shops and travellers, it is the nerve centre of Lhasa.
Your secret visit to Lhasa and Tsedang ends today. Just shopping for souvenirs or relaxing in our hotel room. The representative of our office will take you to the airport or train station.

During the Tibet tour, you will stay in a three-star category hotel. It is also possible to upgrade to a higher rated hotel by paying additional fees. All accommodations are in a double or twin share basis.
All of your tours include a daily breakfast. Lunch and dinner are not adding as we prefer to give our customers the freedom to try the local food themselves. Meals are usually served at the hotel. We cannot guarantee special meal requests, but we will do our best to meet your specific nutritional needs for meals.
At a higher altitude, you get less oxygen in the air. It takes your body a few days to get used to this less oxygenated environment. During this visit, you will spend the first four nights in Lhasa, which gives us plenty of time to acclimatize. Therefore, it is a good idea to exercise or jog regularly, preferably a few weeks before travelling at high altitudes. We recommend that guests consult their doctor before starting their trip, especially those who suffer from known heart, lung, or blood disorders.

I made a trip to Tibet in October 2018. I had very positive experiences with the Kathmandu Based travel agent Namely Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd, who was always prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable about our many questions and special requests. We flew from Kathmandu to Lhasa, and she also made the flight for us and especially the visa collection in Kathmandu was very well organized.
Everything was well organized in Tibet too. Our local tour guide Rinzi was friendly and experienced who provide us with a lot of exciting information. He was easy going for a break and a break, or to cheer up and act, or when someone needed exceptional support, e.g. when we struggle more with the symptoms of altitude. He was always very, very helpful and always cared about the welfare of the group.
Overall, we are delighted with this trip. Thank you very much!
