3 Nights/4 Days Lhasa Cultural Tour is the shortest and comfortable journey in Tibet. We begin our journey from Kathmandu to Lhasa by taking a breathtaking trans-Himalayan flight from Kathmandu. Upon arrival in Lhasa, the first night in Tibet will be spent for acclimatization without any activities. The following two full days you will visit all the popular sights and monuments within Lhasa which covers Potala Palace, the former residence of the Dalai Lama and the center of power, Jokhang temple, Barkhor Bazaar, Drepung and Sera Monasteries. Lhasa, the amazing city, is generally regarded as the heart of Tibet and is filled with unparalleled history, culture, and beauty.
Our sightseeing tour in Lhasa begins through the ancient city of Lhasa. The Potala Palace dominates the skyline with its powerful and ancient architecture.

We begin our sightseeing tour that includes Potala Palace, the greatest monumental structure in Tibet, and it was once the center for both spiritual and temporal power of Tibet. You will be attracted deeply by rooms, halls, chapels, and furnishings of Potala Palace. And the stories that took the place there will convulse you absolutely. In the afternoon, we will visit Jokhang Temple which is the holiest Tibet's temples. A palpable sense of reverence accompanies a visit here. The constant bustle, dazzling paraphernalia of worship, flickering butter lamps and wreaths of heady incense make the Jokhang Temple one of Tibet's most memorable experiences. Finally, we will visit fascinating Barkhor Bazaar which is Lhasa's liveliest place and it is also the main route for prayer wheels rotating. Overnight stay at hotel
