Tibet 8 days tour itinerary
Our 8 days Tibet tour begins with your arrival in Lhasa. You can meet our representative at the airport terminal gate. The team will welcome you and drop you at the hotel. You are most likely to explore only the local market on your arrival day. The next day, we have a full-day sightseeing tour in Lhasa. The guide will pick you up early in the morning from your hotel and drive you to tourist sites like Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple.
Potala Palace is the winter palace of the Dalai Lama. The palace was built in the 7th century by the 33rd great king of Tibet. Today, this palace houses a valuable collection of stupas, artifacts, etc. Here, you will explore intricate rooms, halls, chapels, and ancient furnishings.
