Warriors

Day 5 Xian-Lhasa

Take a morning flight to Lhasa, an amazing city where devout Buddhists and the fashionable set enjoy their lives
in different ways. The guide will meet you at Konggar Airport, and transfer you to Lhasa city with about one and a
half hours’ driving (100km). On the way, you’ll get greeted with Nie Tang Buddha – a Buddha image engraved in
the mountain face. On arrival at the hotel, rest and acclimatize yourself to the local time and altitude. (B)

(Attention: No lunch and dinner will be included for the FIT group in Tibet, because the offer for the individual
tourist is not good, we suggest the client can choose the meal by themselves.)

Day 6 Lhasa

The first day of sightseeing starts from Lhasa’s cardinal landmark-Potala Palace, a structure of massive portions.
It’s towering image already appearing on various occasions, but your first sight of the Potala will still be an awe-
inspiring moment. It takes at least a good 2-hour to visit those rooms, halls and chapels. Some 2km to the east
of the Potala is the most revered religious structure and the holiest temple in Tibet - Jokhang Tempel. Bustling
with worshippers and redolent with mystery, the Jokhang is an unrivaled experience. The quadrangle of streets
surrounding the Jokhang is the Barkhor Market - Lhasa’s most interesting pilgrimage circuit. This area of the
Old Town is both the spiritual heart of Lhasa and the main commercial district for Tibetans. (B)

Day 7 Lhasa

Sightsee the Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery and Norbulingka in Lhasa. Drepung Monastery, the largest
and richest monastery in Tibet, was founded in 1416 by a disciple of Tsong Khapa under the patronage of a noble
family and later enlarged by the Fifth Dalai Lama. Nowadays it stands as Tibet’s most important and largest
monastic university in Tibet. Norbulingka Park (Treasure Garden) was built in the 1740s during the reign of the
Seventh Dalai Lama. Later it was renovated and enlarged and became the Dalai Lama’s Summer Palace. Sera
Monastery is located a few miles to the north of Lhasa, and is one of the three largest monasteries. (B)

Day 8 Lhasa-Gyanze

Drive from Lhasa to Gyantse. In Gyantse, visit Kumbum Monastery which also be called “Ten Thousand of
Buddha Stupa”, the Kumbum Stupa designed by architects from Nepal. Overnight in Gyantse. (B)

Day 9 Gyanze-
Xigaze-Lhasa

Xigatse is the second largest city of Tibet. Visit the Tashilhunpo Monastery, the new Palace of Panchen Lama.
Miles away from Xigaste, you can already see the gold tops of Tashilhunpo Monastery shinning under the sun.
While Tashilhunpo’s magnificent outside may make you gasp in admiration, its inside just offers you more
religious tranquility and sincerity. Then, drive back to Lhasa. (B)

Day 10 Lhasa-
Shanghai

Take a morning flight to Shanghai via Xi’an. Take a stroll on the Bund, at the west shore of the Huangpu River,
the Oriental Pearl TV Tower can be seen on the opposite side. The splendid row of early 20th century Europe
buildings remains the quintessential Shanghai sight. (B-L-D)

Day 11 Shanghai
Visit Suzhou-style Yuyuan Garden and walk through the Old Town filled with antique markets and specialty
stores. The focus of today's exploration is Shanghai Museum, a leading attraction of the city since it opened in
1994. Later, wander around the former French Concession. You will have some free time in the afternoon to
explore the city by your own. Enjoy a farewell dinner at hotel tonight. (B-L-D)
