Nepal Adventure Trip

Central Tibet Tour

Central Tibet TourThe most demanding & the popular tour to Tibet is a 08 days package, where people start their one of the most spectacular overland journey on the 920 km stretch of road, known as the friendship highway, between Katmandu & Lhasa and fly back from there. The Jokhang Temple, situated in the heart of Old Lhasa, it houses Tibet's most precious religious relic, a golden Shakyamuni Buddha which was brought as a gift by the Chinese Princess Wen Cheng on the occasion of her wedding to the Tibetan King, Songtsen Gompo. Surrounding the Jokhang Temple is the bustling Barkhor Market place, which is the religious and social focus of Lhasa. Later in the day visit the Potala Palace, this legendary palace built atop a single hill is synonymous with Tibet by the first foremost king Songtsen Gompa. The fifth Dalai Lama expanded it to its present structure during the 17th century. This 13-story 1000 room citadel served as the headquarters of the former "Monastic-state" of Tibet and was home to successive Dalai Lamas, who from the latter half of the 18th century used it as their winter palace.

The trip allows a number of detours to the highlights of the Tsang Province and the Lhasa City. The trip offers a spectacular insight into the life and culture of the friendly Tibetan people, from the ancient monasteries with chanting monks, to the tranquil shores of the Turquoise Lake Yamdrok Tso, to the kumbum (literally 100,00 images), the most stunning architectural wonder of Tibet & to the city of wonders, the Lhasa.

This trip concludes with the breathtaking Trans-Himalayan flight from Lhasa to Katmandu.
