With a multitude of fascinating cultural and historical sites, Lhasa can be a great stop over for those traveling between China and Nepal; now travelers can spend a day visiting Sera and Drepung Monastery.
- The tour starts after an early breakfast at travelers’ hotel; Drepung Monastery is first up. Located only a few kilometers outside of Lhasa the monastery is hidden amongst rocky ridges and was once one of the world’s largest monasteries, housing around 10,000 monks. The building has been relatively untouched and is reminiscent of its original condition.
- Part 2 of the Tibet tour takes travelers to Sera Monastery; a sprawling 15th century monastery constructed of golden roofs and whitewashed walls. This well preserved monasteries is located north of Lhasa and has been the home of several hundred lamas (high ranking monks) over the years. Monks conduct their famous debates on working days around 3-4 pm, this is a must see!
