Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) April 19, 2015
With the Tibet tour season coming up quickly Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) announces an addition to its lineup of tours for 2015. The new Tibet Cultural Highlight-Yarlung Valley is perfect for the culture-focused traveler. Over 6 days they will enjoy an introduction to Tibetan culture and history while taking in fantastic scenery. Tony of TCTS provides an idea of what visitors can expect.
The tour begins in Lhasa; the group’s native Tibetan guide will accompany them from the airport to their hotel. Everyone will have time to rest and relax before sightseeing starts the following day. Those coming from a much lower elevation are encouraged to drink lots of water and avoid intense physical activity. The following morning travelers will be awe-struck as they explore Potala Palace. From there it’s a short walk to Jokhang Temple. After, there will be free time to explore the crowded streets and alleyways of Barkhor Bazaar.
On the third day of the tour of Tibet travelers will enjoy more sightseeing in Lhasa as they visit Norbulingka or Drepung Monastery in the morning (travelers’ choice!) and then the debating monks of Sera Monastery in the afternoon. The following day the group heads for Tsetang, located in Yarlung Valley, cradle of Tibetan civilization. Here travelers will visit Yumbulakang Palace, Tibet’s oldest palace, and Tramdruk Monastery. On the fifth day of travelling in Tibet the group will visit Samye Monastery and make the hike to Chimpu Hermitage. On the final day the group heads for the airport.
Packing many of Tibet’s famous cultural and historical sites into one tour gives travelers an excellent opportunity to learn about Tibet; all of TCTS’s guides are native Tibetans who are eager to answer questions and share their culture. In addition, TCTS will arrange for all necessary travel permits and can provide advice on the best ways for travelers to arrive/depart Tibet. With the 2015 travel season right around the corner now is the time to start planning!
