Why take this tour?

Despite rampant Chinese-let modernisation, Lhasa (literally the ‘Place of the Gods’) is still largely a city of wonders.  Your first view of the red and white Potala Palace soaring above the holy city will raise goosebumps and the charming whitewashed old tibetan quarter continues to preserve the flavaour of traditional tibetan live.  It is here in the Jokhang an otherworldly mix of the flickering butter lamps, wafting incense and prostrating pilgrims, and the encircling Barkhor pilgrim circuit that most visitors first fall in love with Tibet.  Besides, this tour will continue bring to all the three biggest monasteries in Tibet: Drepung monastery, Sera monastery and Ganden Monastery.  Also Drak Yerpa is one of the holiest hermitages in Tibetan Buddhism and got 80 meditation caves and lots to temples.
