   In this trip we will be visiting Lhasa, Gyantse and Shigatse among other places. Lhasa has undergone many changes in the past ten years. The city today is a great mix of the urban and the ancient. The Potala palace still stands and instantly captivates the eye and the mind. It is by far the most colossal structure in Lhasa. We will also cross the Kamba la and Karo La passes and drop down to the turquoise colored lake of Yamdrok. A visit to the Pelkor Chode Monastery is a must. This monastery was built in 1418 A.D. This monastery is a dark place and though the place houses amazing Murals and Thangkas, you will need a torch to view them. We will also visit the Kumbum Stupa here which is equally fascinating. Another interesting part of this trip is a visit to the Tashilunpo monastery. The beautiful gold top structure of Tashilunpo is set right at the foothills of the beautiful Nizer Ri Mountain and the temple is home to lots of monks dedicated to fulfilling the teachings of Lord Buddha. We will end our trip in Lhasa.
