At 3650 meters above sea level, Lhasa is the highest city in Tibet. It is the Tibetan Sovereign Region’s capital city, a historically, religiously, and traditionally rich area. The Dalai Lama’s residence, Lhasa, means “Place of the Gods” in Tibetan. Tibet, a land of legends and mystery, is likely the ideal location for cultural and adventure seekers. This hidden gem, often known as “the roof of the globe,” is adorned with natural architecture, intact culture, and a long-fabled past.

This journey is suitable for people who want to explore the essential sights in Tibet and Lhasa. You fly or drive across the Himalayas to Lhasa, where you’ll have plenty of time to see the city’s highlights, such as the Potala Home, the Norbulingka (the Dalai Lama’s summer palace), and the Jorkhang Temple, which houses Jowo Shakyamuni, the most sacred statue to Tibetan Buddhists.

The tour begins after a one-hour flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa, which is more reminiscent of a mountain trip. This flight will provide you with the most breathtaking views of Tibet’s magnificent mountain ranges. You will enjoy the sightseeing trip and be amazed by the architecture of monasteries and gumbas.

You will visit Lhasa Valley’s prominent monasteries, like Samye, Drepung, and Sera. You’ll explore Gyantse and Shigatse’s cities and monasteries before taking a breathtaking drive across the Tibetan Plateau, with views of Everest from the north side and Shishmapangma, Tibet’s only 8,000m mountain.

One of the world’s most magnificent road adventures, the Friendship Highway, leads you to Nepal. Finally, you return to Nepal and Kathmandu by driving through the Himalayas and down into a magnificent gorge. You can even fly back to Kathmandu from Lhasa.

FAQ

When is the right time to visit Lhasa?

October and November are ideal for visiting Lhasa since the weather is pleasant and dry, with warm days and cooler evenings. It’s a bright and beautiful time of year, with more than nine hours of sunshine per day. However, temperatures can drop well below freezing at night by November, making warm sweaters essential.

 

Can we visit Lhasa independently?

You can’t do it. Every international traveler must take a pre-arranged trip with a certified travel agent.

 Tibet Vista is a Tibet-based tour operator that has been providing international tourists with Tibet tours since 1984. We now have offices in Kathmandu, Thimphu, and Chengdu, and you can count on us to provide you with a hassle-free Tibet tour.

Is it safe to travel to Tibet?

Yes, it is entirely risk-free. Tibetans are among the friendliest and most welcoming people on the planet. Because they practice Buddhism, the number of criminals is low. And while most roads in Tibet are well-paved and generally safe to travel by car, bike, or trekking, some areas, particularly during the summer (monsoon season), maybe in bad condition.

What are the things I need to pack before traveling to Tibet?

You need to consider three main items when packing: your destination, your mode of transportation, and your own health. For example, if you’re only staying in Lhasa, you’ll only need the most minimal outdoor gear. If you want to pedal to EBC, however, you’ll need some professional gear. If you have a medical condition, always consult your doctor for advice and medications to carry to Tibet.
