Lhasa-Yamdroktse-Gyantse-Shigatse-Yambajing-Lhasa ( 6 Day / 5 Night )[ GW-TE- 006 ] Classical Tibet Tour
Day 01 Arrive in
Lhasa (D)
The guide will meet you at Konggar Airport, and transfer you to Lhasa city with about 1 1/2 hours' driving (100km). On
the way, you'll get greeted by Nie Tang Budda - a Budda image engraved in the mountain face. After arrive in Lhasa,
rest and acclimatize. Overnight in Lhasa
Day 02 Lhasa
(B,L,D)
The first day of sightseeing starts from Lhasa's cardinal landmark- Potala Palace, a structure of massive portions.
Its 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 in Tibet - Jokhang Tempel Bustling with
worshippers and redolent with mystery, the Jokhang is an unrivalled experience. The quadrangle of streets
surrounding the Jokhang is the Barkhor - 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. Overnight in Lhasa.
Day 03 Lhasa-
Yamdroktso-
Gyantse (B,L,D)
Yamdroktso (4441m), one of Tibet's three holy lakes, is located 110km outside of Lhasa. It's mostly mountain road,
winding and bumpy, even thrilling somewhat. After about 3 1/2 hours' driving, climbing over the snow pass of
Kambala(5030m), the dazzling Yamdroktso just lies several hundred meters below the road, and in clear weather is
a fabulous shade of deep turquoise. Far in the distance is the huge massif of Mt. Nojin Kangtsang(7191m).
After down from the mountain, there's about 30km road along lakeside, with barley fields on the other side of the road.
A nice walk by the lakeside can be a great joy. Leaving Yamdroktso is as spectacular as arriving, since you'll cross the
5045m Karola, with its awesome roadside views of the Nojin Kangtsang Glacier.
With the Glacier scene still exciting you, after about 90km, you get to Gyantse. There stands the 35m-high famous
Kumbum, packed with exquisite Tibetan sculpture and paintings, a stunning architectural wonder in Tibet. Overnight
in Gyantse.
Day 04 Gyantse
-Shigatse-
Lhasa (B,L,D)
It's just 1 1/2 hours' driving (98km) from Gyantse to Shigatse. Miles away from Shigaste, you can already see the gold
tops of Tashilhunpo shinning under the sun. While Tashilhunpo's magnificent outside leaves you gasp in admiration,
the inside of this monastery introduces you more religious tranquility and sincerity.
Drive back to Lhasa.

Lhasa (B,L,D)
