Thank you for the best experience of my life. I couldn't fault anything on the trek and I had a ball. Our crew lead by Bir Sing were always smiling and helpful and this is what made the experience so great.
I never thought I'd laugh so and much and the bond that formed in such a short time between the crew and trekkers grew stronger everyday so much so that some of us didn't want to leave - it was hard to say goodbye.
Email a Friend - The Ancient City of Lhasa
This is the ideal short trip to explore the ancient city of Lhasa and some of its surrounding monasteries and other cultural highlights. We include visits to the Jokhang, the Norbulingka (the Summer Palace of the Dalai Lama), the famous Potala Palace as well as side trips to the nearby monasteries of Drepung, Sera or Tsurpu. Sera Monastery is located approximately 5km north of the Jokang and includes 19 hermitages, including four nunneries, which are all located in the foot hills north of Lhasa. Visiting these ancient Buddhist sites, including Samyes, the first monastery establisged inside Tibet, will give you a fantastic insight into both ancient and modern life within Tibet. This short trip can also be added before or after any of our other Himalayan departures.
