Lhasa is a fascinating city which is set in a marshy valley and encircled by gigantic mountain peaks. It has been the religious and the cultural centre of Tibet since time immemorial. We will be traveling to this beautiful city which stands at an elevation of about 3,658 mt. Lhasa boasts of a glorious past and has seen days of warfare and spirituality to communist reforms led by the Chinese. This trip will lead you into the heart of this same exotic city and will give you an opportunity to visit the enchanting monasteries around it. The Jokhang temple for example stands as one of the attractions in this trip. We will also visit the colossal Potala palace which dominates the skyline and stands as the hallmark of Tibetan architecture. After seeing these beautiful sites and more, we will end our trip in Lhasa.
