Five Days Lhasa Tour


Lhasa is the capital city of Tibet with colorful customs. It is a good way for travelers to know about the traditional Tibetan cultures when setting foot in some famous Tibetan attractions such as Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, etc. Besides the ancient buildings, natural scenery is also a major feature for travelers. With green lakes mirroring the blue sky, winding roads extending to the summits, and running rivers roaring into the valleys, Tibet has become a paradise of wild animals. In order to explore both traditional cultures and natural beauty in Tibet, we have planned a five days Lhasa tour for travelers. The journey starts from Lhasa city. After visiting some famous Tibetan attractions, you will visit the natural beauty - Yamdrok Lake.

Day One: Arrive in Lhasa

You will be welcomed by your tour guide as soon as you arrive at the Tibet train station or airport in Lhasa. Then, your tour guide will send you to your hotel immediately. Time is free for you after you check in the hotel. If you want to have a walk around Lhasa city, you can visit the square and take some photos. However, if you feel uncomfortable because of the high altitude sickness. You can have a rest in your hotel. In order to reduce the high altitude sickness, you should avoid fierce activities like running and jumping, avoid shower in case of catching a cold, and eat more fruits and vegetables.

Day Two: Lhasa Tour

Today, you will visit the Tibetan landmark - Potala Palace.

But you mustn’t take photos when visiting the palace.
Then, you will head to Jokhang Temple. For Buddhists, it is the holy place. When standing in front of the temple, you will see lots of pilgrims from remote areas seeking blessings from God. Here, you can visit the image of the Shakyamuni at the age of twelve. Around Jokhang Temple, there is a busy street called Barkhor Street. If you are interested in the traditional Tibetan goods, you can find them on this street. It’s very meaningful to buy them as souvenirs.
