8 Days Tibet Lhasa Tour

Tibet is a land of rich Buddhist culture and tradition. Our eight day
tour begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa and a drive across
the spectacular Tibetan Plateau to return to Kathmandu.  We spend two
days in Lhasa where you will have the opportunity to participate in
walking the circuits pilgrims follow there and around the city,
visiting the Barkhor market, Jokhang Temple, Sera & Drepung
monasteries, and other sites where the living culture is practiced.
We then drive to Xigatze, Gyantse, Tsedang and across the Tibetan
plateau,visiting the Samye Monastery along the way. Our drive covers
3450 km of road from Lhasa to Kathmandu and is suitable for families
as well as small groups wanting a glimpse into the culturally rich
life of the Tibetans.  Acquiring visas for Tibet can be challenging.
