Tibet is one of the world’s most desirable holiday destinations. Here you can experience tranquility and spirituality while unraveling Centuries’ old ancient traditions that have remained isolated on the earth’s most majestic plateau.

A three-night four-day Tibet package is a unique experience for those Travelers who are seeking to experience the historical and cultural legacy of Tibet in a small amount of time. This tour package focuses mostly on exploring Lhasa. The Tibetan capital of Lhasa represents the religious and cultural essence of Tibet, which is often described as the “Place of God”.

Lhasa is one of the most popular pilgrim sites often visited by thousands of Buddhist pilgrims every year. Situated at an altitude of 3,650 meters above sea level, Lhasa is a place that showcases 1300 years of history. A visit to Lhasa would not be complete without seeing the three grand Gelugpa Monasteries. Built-in the seventeenth century by Je Tsongkhapa and his disciples, this magnificent monastery is home to many Buddhist artifacts. The construction of Potala Palace by the fifth Dalai Lama, i.e., Lobsang Gyatso, was the major breakthrough in the history of Tibet. This three night four days Kathmandu Lhasa Tour will be a short trip yet you will have truly memorable experience since there is so much to learn and discover in Lhasa.

A Guest Relationship Officer from our company will accompany you to the airport. He will provide you with all the details of the Tibet tour, and hand you over the documents we prepared for the tour in advance.   Once you leave the Tribhuvan International Airport you will have an amazing view of the Himalayas in the North, green hills between them, and the plain Terai.

Built in the late 15th century, this monastery is one of the highly preserved monasteries in Tibet. Within the white walls and golden roof of this monastery, hundreds of Buddhist monks study Tibetan Buddhis. It is a utopia for those people who want to witness the buddhis tradition and culture from up-close.   After exploring for an hour or two around the vicinity of Sera Monastery, we will take a break to fill our belly. This will enable us to prepare for our next destination i.e. Norbulingka. This monastery is widely known as the summer palace of the Dalai Lama all around Tibet. We will also be visiting one of the most sacred shrines of Tibet, the Jokhang Temple.
