Day1  Arrival in Lhasa Sincere greetings & airport-hotel transfer.

Welcome to Lhasa, the capital city of the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China and referred to as "The Roof of the World." Lhasa lies in a valley deep in the Himalayan Mountains and has an altitude of 3,650 meters (11, 975 feet). Lhasa is one of the lowest regions in Tibet.

People in Lhasa enjoy bright sunshine more than 125 days a year. That might be the reason why they are so efficient in building amazing palaces and monasteries! Today is not for sightseeing; your tour guide and driver will pick you up and help you get acclimated to Lhasa’s altitude.

Tips for Acclimatization:

Generally speaking, the best way to acclimate to high-altitude areas is by having periods of rest and relaxation, staying hydrated by drinking a lot of water; and do not drink any alcohol. Please do not move around too fast, although you might be excited to be standing on “The Roof of the World,” slow down, you will have plenty of time to see and experience all the sights.

Accommodation:Four Points by Sheraton Lhasa or Himalaya Lhasa Hotel

Day2  Lhasa Sightseeing Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street (B)

Today, you will visit the sacred Potala Palace, which was built during the Chinese Tang Dynasty in the 7th century AD and listed as a World Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO Organization in 1994. The buildings, artworks, and statues of Tibetan Buddhism are all highlights of this ancient architectural complex. Standing on the mountain where the Potala Palace is located, you will have a bird’s eye view of the city of Lhasa. Of added interest, check out the back of a Chinese Currency 50 Yuan note, and you will see a picture of the Potala Palace printed there!

Continuing on your trip to the Jokhang Temple, also known as the Qoikang Monastery, you will find the life-size statue of the 12-year-old Shakyamuni (Buddha). Jokhang Temple is believed to be the sacred heart of Tibet, because the Shakyamuni Buddha is located in the there. That historical fact makes the Jokhang Temple even more scared than the Potala Palace. It is said the city of Lhasa was built based on the Jokhang Temple. After leaving the Temple, we will take a stroll along Barkhor Street. This ancient street is the route for pilgrimages around the Jokhang Temple and a perfect place to buy local Tibetan style handcrafts including shoes, hats, tea, bowls and quilts. If you are hungry, stop at one of the many small food stands and buy a mouth-watering Tibetan Style dessert, such as "Tu", a sort of pastry made with yak butter, brown sugar and water. If you want something more substantial, try a tasty bowl of "Thenthuk", a hand-tossed Tibetan noodle soup, a local favorite.

Did you know Shakyamuni lived around 500 BC and was the founder of Buddhism?

Day3  Traditional Handicraft Art Center Experience - Sera Monastery Debates

This day will give you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in Tibetan culture as you will be involved in the hands-on process of the  traditional Tibetan handicrafts; then witness a truly Tibetan tradition with the debating monks at one of Tibetan Buddhhim's holiest monasteries - the Sera Monastery. After breakfast, in the ethereal morning rays of light of a Lhasa morning, we will learn how to make traditional Tibetan cuisine in a typical Tibetan setting. Dishes will include Kasei (fried dough foods), Tsampa (roasted barley) with butter and cheese, Tibetan butter tea, and other tasty Tibetan treats. After learning the essence of Tibetan cooking, we will move on to Tibetan Traditional Handicraft Art Center by bus. This treasure house of Tibetan culture will teach you all about various Tibetan costumes as you learn how to make Tibetan incense, the methods behind Tibetan calligraphy, how to create thangka (Tibetan Buddhist painting), and the secrets of block printing.

Having mastered the art of Tibetan handicrafts, we will move on to visit the holy Sera Monastery, which is held in the courtyard almost every day between 3 and 5:30 p.m. Please note that in case of some special monastery activities such as the Dharma Meeting or the reception of VIPs, the monk debates may be canceled that day. After our visit to the monastery, feel free to stroll around the streets of Lhasa as you absorb the atmosphere and spirit of the devoted Tibetan people or you may return to your hotel to rest and relax from this wonderful Tibetan cultural experience.

Day4  Lhasa - Gyantse - Shigatse (360KM,7.5Hours) Yamdrok Lake, Karola Glacier, Kumbum Monastery(B)

Today, we will leave Lhasa for Shigatse, the home of 5 mountains whose heights are over 8,000 meters (26,246 feet). On the way, we will see the charming Lake Yamdrok first. With an altitude of 4,441 meters (1,446 feet), the Lake Yamdrok is the highest fresh-water lake in the world. The color of the lake is sky blue due to the reflection of the blue sky. Sometimes it turns to deep blue when the angle of sunshine changes. The water of the lake comes from the snow on the Nyenchen Tanglha Mountain, so local people believe the water can purify their souls.

We will head towards the Karola Glacier after visiting the lake. The altitude will go up to 5,560 meters (18,241 feet) on the way to the glacier, which is only 300 meters (1,082 feet) away from the highway. The glacier looks like a huge Tangka (Tibetan Scroll Painting) under the sunshine. It was used in scenes in many Chinese movies, such as the Red River Valley and The Knot.

Visit the Kumbum Monastery before you spend the night in Shigatse. The 9-story One Hundred Thousand Buddhist Pagoda is a must-visit attraction in the monastery. Over 100,000 sculptures of Buddhas and 1,000 frescos collected in the monastery make it a paradise for art.

Did You Know the Yamdrok, Namtso and Manasarovar are three sacred lakes in Tibet?

Day6  Sunrise on Mount Everest and Head to the Gyirong port

The most important activity today is wishing a beautiful sunrise. During a clear day, the Mount Everest looks like a goddess wearing a golden veil. You can try your best to see her face, but you can never see every part of her face clearly. This is one or the many reason why she is sacred!

Saying farewell to the Mount Everest we will drive to Gyirong port, a small town on the border between China and Nepal, after. Beautiful mountain view is still available on your way to the Gyirong port.

Accommodation:Gyirong Hotel or similar (Twin Sharing with simple facility)
