The shortest recommended Tibet tour; this shows you the major landmarks and points of interest in and around Lhasa. You take the spectacular flight from Kathmandu over Mt. Everest & the Himalaya to Lhasa. The next three days are spent exploring the shrines and landmarks of the Holy City and monasteries in the vicinity. The 17th century Potala dominates Lhasa and is now a museum housing priceless treasures. You will find the Tibetan spirit alive and well at the pilgrimage circuit of Barkhor around the Jokhang, the holiest of Tibetan shrines. The quantity of offerings at Norbu
Lingka, the summer palace of the Dalai Lamas, bears testimonial to the powerful belief of the Tibetan people in their religious and spiritual leader. You visit Sera and Drepung, two of the four great monasteries of the Gelugpa (Yellow hat) sect of Tibetan Buddhism, that flourished until recently; small numbers of monks now live in them. This is a superb introduction to the religious and cultural heritage of Tibet.
