Our 5 days tour offers Tibet offers the unique opportunity to visit Lhasa, the epicenter of Tibetan Buddhist religion and rule, a visit to famous Potala - a palace of exile spiritual leader His Holiness Dalai Lama. Flying from Kathmandu (4,264ft) over the spectacular Himalayan mountain chain, we'll arrive just outside Lhasa at almost 12,000ft. We'll spend our first night in Tibet relaxing and acclimatizing to the significant increase in altitude. While in Lhasa, we'll tour the labyrinthine halls of the former winter residence of the Dalai Lama, the Potala Palace, and his summer residence, Norbulingka Palace, the seat of power over the Tibetan Plateau. We'll visit the largest monastic university in Tibet at Drepung and walk the kora around Jokhang Monastery with time to barter for goods at Barkhor Market, the heart of both trade and religion in Lhasa. We can travel just beyond the city limits to watch the scriptural debates at Sera Monastery.
