Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
Those planning a trip to Tibet often feel that there are many places to visit in a short time. Tibet Ctrip, a Lhasa based Tibet travel agency, know travelers’ needs and has created new culture tour programs that can be completed in just four days. With daily flights to Lhasa, many choose travel to Kathmandu or spend time exploring China after a short stay in Tibet.
Below are the Tibet culture tour program details.
Day 1: Get to Lhasa, capital of Tibet. A local Tibetan travel guide and driver will pick up travelers from Lhasa train station or Lhasa Gonggar Airport and take them to their hotel in downtown Lhasa. This is a great time for travelers to rest and relax while acclimatizing to the high altitude. For those wanting to venture out and do some walking around Lhasa, it is important to take it easy and not over exert one’s self. Be sure to drink much more water than usual.
Day 2: Today the tour starts with a guided sightseeing tour of Lhasa. Travelers will visit Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Bazaar, and Sera Monastery. Jokhang Temple is a destination for pilgrims from all over Lhasa and some countryside nearby and it is home to the only known remaining image of the Shakyamuni Buddha that was created while he was alive. Barkhor Bazaar, the area surrounding Jokhang Temple, is filled with shops where travelers can practice their bargaining skills while buying souvenirs. In the afternoon, the tour heads to Sera Monastery where the group’s guide will help them learn about Tibetan Buddhism.
Day 3: The second day of the 4 days Lhasa tour is a very special one. It begins with a visit to Potala Palace. This is the big highlight of any Tibet culture tours. Visitors will walk where Dalai Lamas have walked for hundred of years and see cultural treasures such as towering stupas and statues of gods. The next stop is Drepung Monastery, house of more than 10,000 monks in the past.
Day 4: Tibetan tour guide and driver will take travel group to the airport or train station. The tour of Tibet ends here, if time allows, travelers are encouraged to extend their time with Tibet Ctrip into Nepal or China.
While four days is enough to see some of the most famous cultural sites in Tibet, the itinerary can be tailor-made further to meet travelers’ personal needs and interests. Years of Tibet travel service experience gives Tibet Ctrip an edge in providing enriching culture trips, even when travelers have tight schedule. When traveling through Asia, a few days in Tibet helps create a diverse experience and unforgettable memories.
