Kathmandu Lhasa Tour – 7 Days

Overview

Fly in and fly out Kathmandu Lhasa Tour offers fun-filled adventurous journey around cultural heritages and historical places of Nepal and Tibet. Lhasa, most popularly known as ‘Sunlight City’, is regarded as the heart and soul of Tibet.

Kathmandu Lhasa Tour, the shortest possible tour of Lhasa from Kathmandu, is very popular amongst international travellers. The tour begins and ends in the heart of Tibet, Lhasa, and covers popular landmarks of this beautiful city such as the Dalai Lama’s Potala and Norbulingka Palaces, the Tibet Traditional Hospital and Barkhor Bazaar.

We also visit a number of impressive Tibetan monasteries in Lhasa like Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery and Jokhang Temple. They are all amazing monasteries with history and religious relevance of their own. This trip also takes us further to the outskirts of Lhasa where we visit the 15th century Ganden Monastery and explore the Drayerpa Cave, which is still a meditative sanctuary for Tibetan monks.
