Day 1
Fly to Lhasa

Our English-speaking guide and the private driver will pick you up at your Kunming hotel for your Lhasa flight. Begin this spiritual tour with its iconic spot--Potala Palace. With 13 storeys and about 1,000 rooms, this sky-touching Tibetan architecture was originally constructed for King Sontsen Gampo to welcome his Chinese princess bride and then served as the Lama's winter shelter residence.

Day 2
Day Tour of Lhasa City

Our guide and driver will meet you at your hotel and head for the Jokong Temple. Waves of devoted pilgrims can be seen prostrate outside the Jokong Temple which is the center for Tibetan Buddhism events or activities. The heavy yak butter smell can be lingering round the day and intricate carvings can well satisfy your detail-wanted eyes.

The 1,000-meter Barkhor Street is lined with the stalls selling Tibetan spiritual wares and tourist baubles like the prayer flags, Tibetan boots, yak butter, etc that deserve bargain and purchase. Besides, here you can also see the clock-wise proceeding pilgrims around the Jokong Temple.

Next is the biggest Buddhism temple in Tibet--Drepung Monastery. Among the Tibet highlights, the temple houses the remarkable Tibetan cultural relic, Buddhism scriptures and art crafts. Afternoon debating of the monks to sharpen their mind can be viewed if time suits.

Continue our Tibetan tour in Sera Monastery. The treasury Tibetan Tripitaka printed in the year of 1410 and Shoton Festival activity spot and intense debating of the monks in the afternoon add more luring touch to the monastery.

Conclude today's tour by transferring back to your Tibet hotel with your guide.

Day 3
Fly Back to Kunming

Farewell to the spiritual destination and board your flight for Kunming. Transfer back to your Kunming hotel. Or you can just conclude the tour in Lhasa.
