   The tour begins at Lhasa, the cultural hub of Tibet. The place is adorned with beautiful buildings and monasteries. The Potala palace is a perfect example of Tibetan architecture. This structure is so massive that it dominates the skyline of Lhasa. After seeing the marvelous structures at Lhasa and also the beautiful Ganden monastery, we will be moving towards Drigung where we will have an opportunity to see the sky burial ground. The place is adorned by flags and covered with green hills and the mist. The sky burial system is an integral part of Tibet's cultural and religious legacy. We will then move towards the Tridrom nunnery where there are beautiful and mysterious hermitage caves. These are the caves where student monks meditate just before they graduate as a monk. The Tridrom nunnery is situated in a beautiful valley and a visit here is a real treat to the eye. We will end out trip in Lhasa.
