Shigatse, Everest,
Min Age : 6
Max People : 12

Day 1 Arrival in Lhasa 

Upon disembarking from the aircraft, our staff will greet you with the most heartfelt welcome. Upon arrival, what you require the most is to decelerate your pace and unwind your state of mind. We will transport you to the hotel, where you can fully relax and allow your body to gradually acclimate to the highland atmosphere. 

Lhasa, which signifies “Sacred Land” in Tibetan, is a sacred city from the perspective of Tibetans and a haven in the hearts of travellers. With the commencement of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, Lhasa is no longer out of reach. Prosperity and crowds do not represent the authentic essence of Lhasa; let us collectively discover its enigmatic allure.

Kind tips:

  • Transportation: Pick-up from trains and planes will organize by our agency, the staff will contact you beforehand, so please make sure your mobile phone is accessible. Foreigners and Taiwan compatriots require a tour guide when they arrive at the station.
  • The travel agency will inform you in advance about the hotel room pick-up procedure and take you directly to the hotel for rest. If you haven’t received any notification, please promptly contact the travel agency staff for timely assistance.
  • Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS): On the day of your arrival in Lhasa, avoid engaging in strenuous activities and refrain from taking a shower at night to prevent catching a cold. Avoid alcohol consumption. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and consuming fruits, but avoid overeating.
  • Rest more and consider bringing your own Diamox or health supplements such as Rhodiola rosea and Gaoyuanan to alleviate symptoms of AMS. Follow the instructions of the travel agency staff and tour guides, and try to avoid going out for activities. Maintaining a calm state of mind and getting sufficient rest is the best way to prevent AMS. If you feel unwell, seek medical treatment at the hospital without delay.

Day 2: Exploring the Holy Lhasa City

potala Whole View from Far

Located in Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet, the Potala Palace is a magnificent architectural wonder that stands tall on Red Hill. This medieval “temple” holds immense significance as it served as the winter residence of the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet, for centuries. Its towering presence, with a height of over 13,000 feet, commands attention and evokes a sense of awe and reverence. 

Instructions for reserving tickets for the Potala Palace:

  • The tickets for the Potala Palace are subject to a reservation system that requires valid identification documents (ID card, household registration book, or passport). Once a reservation is made successfully, another reservation cannot be made within 7 days of the visit. The travel agency is not responsible for any inability to enter the Fabric Palace. Before the tour, tourists must bring their original valid identification. If the name or identification number does not match the actual identification used, entry will be denied. The ticket purchase fee is non-refundable. Please be aware of this.
  • The visit time for the Potala Palace is assigned randomly by the computer system of the Potala Palace Management Office and cannot be specified. Please understand that the actual tour route may differ from the provided itinerary.
  • Visits to the Potala Palace are limited during the peak season. Each travel agency in Tibet has a limited number of group bookings each day. To ensure a smooth visit, the travel agency manages this issue through various channels. Due to the specific requirements for ticket purchases through different channels, tourists are advised to follow the tour guide’s instructions.

The following situations are normal arrangements:

  1. Each group may be divided into multiple smaller groups, which may result in the separation of group members or tourists who booked together. There may also be situations where they join other members from different groups on the tour.
  2. Each smaller group may have different visit times/dates.
  3. Each smaller group may have different tour guides.
  4. In some cases, due to special tickets, tour guides may not be allowed to accompany the tour. Please understand.
  5. The price for children does not include the ticket fee for the Potala Palace. By default, children under 1.2 meters tall (excluding) can enter for free with adults. Therefore, children who are 1.2 meters tall and above should inform the travel agency when registering and paying for the ticket and comprehensive fee for the Potala Palace.

Upon arrival in Lhasa, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in traditional Tibetan handicrafts. The tour guide will accompany guests to the Tibetan Cultural area, where they can explore the art of creating revitalizing Tibetan incense. Moreover, one can actively participate in the production process, which holds a unique significance compared to commercially available Tibetan fragrances. Furthermore, a dedicated instructor will provide guidance on how to engrave your own name in Tibetan script, which will be skillfully etched and imprinted. These handcrafted Tibetan incense and personalized inscriptions can be taken home as cherished souvenirs from your encounter with Tibetan culture.

Day 3: Lhasa → Yamdrok Yongcuo → Karola Glacier → Shigatse

After setting off, on the route is the gorge of the Yarlung Zangbo River, where you can have an aerial view of the Yarlung Zangbo River. Continuing along the Yarlung River valley, take Provincial Highway 307 and drive towards the centre of the mountain to witness an aerial view of the valley, villages, and mountains. The site is vast and magnificent.

At Mount Gambala, you will discover the most scenic sight of the Yamdrok Yutso Lake, with the azure heavens, and the loveliest aspect of the lake. Here, you will comprehend the genuine significance of “celestial droplets in the firmament, aquamarine Yamdrok Lake” Despite the assertions of numerous photographers that the allure of Yamdrok Lake is indescribable, you can still capture images with the Yak, Tibetan Mastiff, sheep offered by the Tibetans on Gambala Mountain. Make certain to discuss the cost in advance to prevent any inconveniences.

Yamdrok Yongtso is a freshwater body and one of the three sacred bodies of water in Tibet. The lake water is transparent, pleasant, and potable, and the cerulean lake is linked to the snow-capped peaks in the distance. Alongside the vibrant peaks on both sides, the unique Tibetan ethnic villages, and the livestock grazing nearby, the journey is invigorating.

With a water expanse of 638 square kilometres, a lake surface of 4441 meters above sea level, and a shoreline of 250 kilometres, Yamdrok Lake is considered the turquoise earring left by the goddess in the world. From the summit of Gangbala Mountain, at an elevation of 4,950 meters, Yamdrok appears like a sapphire embedded among the peaks, and the azure lake reflects the radiant blue sky like a looking glass.

The Karola Glacier is one of the three major continental glaciers in Tibet, which is gradually vanishing. The glacier is located at the Nochin Kangsang Snow Mountain, one of the four pinnacles in Tibet, and stretches from the mountaintop to the roadside, just a few hundred meters away from the road. Although the glacier is layered in black and white due to the impact of dust on the road over many years, the upper portion of the glacier gleams like a colossal thangka suspended on the mountain wall under the sunlight. The glacier gained prominence due to its appearance in the film “Red River Valley.”

Shigatse, known as “the best estate” in the Tibetan language, is one of the primary agricultural regions of Tibet. It has been a significant hub for politics, religion, and culture throughout Tibetan history, and it was also the site for the Panchen Lamas’ headquarters. With a history spanning over 500 years, it is presently the second-largest city in Tibet.

Friendly suggestions:

  1. Besides the Tibet Entry Permit, foreign visitors who plan to visit Mount Everest together in the same vehicle must also obtain travel authorization in Shigatse or Gyangtse. The tour guide will make necessary adjustments and schedule arrangements based on the status of the travel authorization. Visitors are kindly asked to comply with the tour guide’s instructions and cooperate actively.
  2. In the event of occasional technical glitches or a sudden surge in tourist numbers during peak seasons, the process of obtaining travel authorization may take an extended period of time. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Rongbuk Temple

Rongbuk Monastery is about 5,100 meters above sea level, with high and cold terrain and wonderful scenery. The new Everest Base Camp is nearby. Fortunately, you can also see Mount Everest’s clouds floating like the fire of life.

Helpful suggestions:

  • Accommodation is in tents at the Everest base camp, 8-15 people per tent, bunk beds. Overall, it is neat and organized, but there is a significant difference compared to city hotels. Please note that from October to April of the following year, due to the cold weather, the tents will be relocated from the Mount Everest base camp to a nearby village for homestay accommodations.
  • The food and lodging on this day are subpar, the altitude is high, and the temperature is low. Please take precautions against the cold. Prioritize safety and prevent altitude sickness. In the summer, the evening temperatures range from 0-8 degrees, so please bring warm clothing. You also have the option to rent a down jacket at the base camp to stay warm.

Day 5 Mount Everest→Jiacuola Mountain Pass →Shigatse 

In the early hours, you need to be completely equipped. Prior to dawn, the temperature at the mountain pass can drop to subzero levels, and coupled with intense gusts, please make sure to get ready with suitable gear. Standing atop the world, gazing towards the sun and gazing up at Mount Everest, the summit remains snow-covered throughout the year, the glacier looms from afar, the glistening peak stands tall, a sacred spectacle, and the sight of Mount Everest during sunrise (the outcome of photography relies on the weather).

Kind tips: Whether you can see the sunrise of Mount Everest is restricted by the weather and the actual tour situation, please understand
