This tour is uniquely focused on giving tour guests a full experience of Lhasa's many attractions. Two full days of sightseeing includes all of Lhasa's well-known sites and even a few of the less well-known ones, sure to be an extraordinary memory.

Day 01 :
Arrival in Lhasa [3,658 m]

Your Tibetan guide will greet you at the Lhasa Gonggar Airport or Lhasa railway station, and transport you to your hotel in the city. From the airport to Lhasa is 68 km (42 mi), roughly an hour drive to your hotel. The drive from the train station is only 15 km (9 mi) and takes 20 minutes. During the course of the ride, you will not only be amazed by the spectacular scenery of the Tibetan plateau, the scattered Tibetan villages, but certainly by the hospitality of your guide and driver, as well! After checking into the hotel, you will have the remainder of the day to rest and acclimatize to the high altitude.

Day 02 :
Lhasa City Sightseeing (B)

Potala Palace is the best known cultural landmark in Tibet. It is most renowned as the residence of the lineage of Dalai Lamas (Avalokiteshvara), though the massive structure contains a small world within itself. It was first built by 33rd ruler of his dynasty, King Songtsen Gangpo in the 7th century, but still is in surprisingly good repair because of continual rejuvenation projects.

Jokhang temple is the most scared building in Tibetan Buddhism, located in the heart of Lhasa old town. It is the most sought after pilgrimage destination for all Tibetans.

Barkhor Street is a popular Kora (holy walking path) which surrounds the Jokhang Temple. Always full of Tibetan faithful, visitors may find mingling with local pilgrims around the Barkhor Street uniquely engaging. It is also a popular shopping district where you can buy gifts for your family and friends.

Lhasa old town gives a glimpse into the daily life of Lhasa Tibetans, which has remained largely unchanged for centuries. You can visit the outdoor markets and specialty stores of handmade bags, carpets, etc.

(B)=Breakfast

Day 03 :
One Day Tour to Drepung Monastery and Sera Monastery [4,500 m] (B)

Drepung monastery was the seat of the Government prior to Potala, it was once the world largest monastery in the history with 10,000 monks hailed from different monasteries all over Tibet.

 

Sera monastery's famous debating monks go back and forth in their debates every day between 3 pm to 5 pm (except on Sunday), a performance well worth seeing.

Optional program: In the evening, your guide can take you to enjoy a local Tibetan performance (price is not included).

Day 04 :
Lhasa Train Station or Airport Send Off (B)

Your guide and driver will see you off at the Lhasa airport or train station, which concludes the tour.

Tashi Delek,

I live in Chengdu, and would like to take the train from Chengdu to Lhasa for the 4 day Lhasa trip/tour.
Travel dates are Dec. 21 (after 6pm) to Dec. 26 (return anytime).
I can arrange the train on my own, but need all entry permits, visa, etc.
Please give me more info on hotel, tour specifics, and pricing.
Do I have to stick side-by-side with a tour guide once in Lhasa?
I may be traveling solo, is there a group available to join on those dates, unless I can gather some friends?
If I can gather a group, what is the minimum number?
Is it too late to arrange this on such short notice?
I have a friend in Lhasa to visit as well.

Tujey Chey, Gina

Dear Windhorse Tour,

I am interested in joining the 4 Days Lhasa Tour. However I will be traveling with a really limited budget (i'm a solo traveler) so is there anyway that I can minimize the cost such as staying at a cheaper hotel (not a 3 star hotel as listed down in the accommodation?

Thank you so much for your assistance.

Cheers,
Stoki
