Unveiling the Mystical Land of Tibet: A 6-Day Journey

Day 1: Arrival in Lhasa, Airport Transfer to Hotel, Free Time


Welcome to Lhasa!

A warm Tibetan welcome awaits as you emerge from the Lhasa Gonggar Airport. The journey from the airport to the hotel, approximately 60 kilometres, promises a glimpse of the unique Tibetan villages and the grandeur of the Yarlung Tsangpo, the world’s highest river. The iconic yak-skin boats adorning its waters offer a captivating sight, setting the stage for the enchantment that lies ahead.

Upon reaching the hotel, take time to acclimate to the high-altitude climate. This day is crucial for first-time Tibetan visitors. At approximately 3650 meters, the oxygen level is considerably lower, potentially leading to altitude sickness. Remember to take it slow, rest, stay hydrated, and if experiencing symptoms, inform the guide or local staff for assistance.

Day 2: Lhasa City Tour


Potala Palace

Perched atop the Red Hill at 3700 meters, the Potala Palace echoes the grandeur of Tibetan history. First built in the 7th century, it became the winter palace for the Dalai Lamas in the 17th century. With 999 rooms, it houses the White Palace, the residence of the Dalai Lama, and the Red Palace, hosting temples and stupas of past Dalai Lamas. The palace’s grandeur is matched only by the extraordinary panoramic view it offers.

Jokhang Temple

An amalgamation of Tibetan, Tang, Nepalese, and Indian architectural styles, Jokhang Temple houses a rare 12-year-old Buddha statue. The temple’s significance extends to being the birthplace of the “Geshe” degree in Tibetan Buddhism. The pilgrimage route around the temple, marked by deep footprints on the blue stone floor, invites visitors to partake in this sacred act.

Barkhor Street

Bustling with life, Barkhor Street is a vibrant hub where you can find an array of treasures. Strolling along this street, following the clockwise direction, provides insight into local culture and traditions. Legend has it that the Potala Palace’s secret chamber was once a meeting place for the 6th Dalai Lama, Tsangyang Gyatso, and his lover “Maji Ami,” a tale that adds a touch of mystery to this lively centre.

Day 3: Lhasa City Tour


Drepung Monastery

As one of the six major Gelug monasteries in Tibetan Buddhism, the grand Drepung Monastery hosts Buddha exhibitions during the Shoton Festival. It overlooks the Lhasa River and vast plains, featuring towering Buddha halls, scripture halls, and monks’ residences.

Sera Monastery

Preserving over ten thousand Vajra Buddha statues, Sera Monastery is renowned for its debating sessions, offering visitors an opportunity to witness this unique tradition and immerse themselves in the living culture of Tibetan Buddhism.

Day 4: Lhasa – Namtso Lake – Damxung/Yangbachen


Embarking on the Northern Adventure

Heading north towards the sacred Namtso Lake, the journey unfolds with picturesque scenes of cattle and sheep grazing on the Northern Tibetan Grassland. The route reveals the serene beauty of the Nagela Mountain Pass, serving as a gateway to the crystal-clear blue waters of Namtso Lake. As the evening approaches, the sunset paints the sky in breathtaking hues, offering a glimpse of the plateau’s shy and delicate beauty.

Day 5: Damxung – Yangbachen – Lhasa


Returning to Lhasa, a stop at Yangbajing Hot Springs provides a soothing and relaxing experience, offering a moment of respite before bidding farewell to the adventure. The warm sulfuric waters of the hot springs create a memorable experience, allowing participants to relax and rejuvenate amidst the natural beauty of Tibet.

Day 6: Departure from Lhasa


As the journey draws to a close, take a moment to engage in free time activities before departing from Lhasa. Whether it’s a leisurely stroll through the streets or a visit to a local market, savour the final moments in this mystical land before our driver transfers you to Lhasa Gonggar Airport or the train station.

As you board your train or flight, reflect on the memories and experiences that Tibet has presented to you. Bid farewell to this sacred land, carrying with you the joy and mystery that defined your journey through Tibet.

In Conclusion


The 6-day journey through Tibet captures the essence of this mystical land, offering a glimpse into its rich history, breathtaking landscapes, and vibrant culture. From the grandeur of historical sites like Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple to the serene beauty of Namtso Lake and the hot springs of Yangbajing, each day unfolds a new chapter in this captivating adventure. Embrace the warmth of the Tibetan welcome, immerse yourself in the traditions of local life, and carry with you the indelible memories of a journey through the heart of Tibet.
