Lhasa and Surrounds

On this short trip to Tibet, you will visit Tibet’s capital, Lhasa, and the bustling Tsedang. The trip begins in Tsedang which is considered the cradle of Tibetan civilization. The first king of Tibet who is said to have descended from heaven ruled over Tibet from the Yambu Lakhang monastery. From Tsedang, you will drive to Samye the site of the Samye monastery, the oldest monastery in Tibet.

You will continue to Lhasa, the forbidden city, and the site of the Potala Palace the ancient palace of the Dalai Lamas. In and surrounding Lhasa are many other important monasteries such as the Sera Monastery, the Jokhang temple and the Drepung Monastery. You will visit all these monasteries and the Ganden monastery complex which is located about 32 miles from Lhasa. The drive to Ganden monastery will give you an excellent oppurtunity to experience the barren Tibetan plateau which would otherwise only be possible by trekking.

Highlights

  • Explore Tibet’s treasures: monasteries and palaces that were build many centuries ago
  • Join thousands of Tibetans on the kora of Jokhang Temple in Lhasa
  • Journey to Ganden to explore a secluded monastery complex
