Tibet, on the lofty Tibetan Plateau on the northern side of the Himalayas, is an autonomous region of China. It’s nicknamed the “Roof of the World” for its towering peaks. It shares Mt. Everest with Nepal. Its capital, Lhasa, is site of hilltop Potala Palace, and Jokhang Temple, Tibet’s spiritual heart, revered for its golden statue of the young Buddha

You will be taken through the ancient city of Lhasa which is filled with unparalleled history, culture,heritage and beauty. The Potala Palace dominates the skyline with its powerful and ancient eastern architecture.  

Tsedang, situated 138 miles southeast of Lhasa is the gateway to the ancient Yarlung valley – the base from where Yarlung kings unified Tibet. It was only later that the power center moved to Lhasa when King Songtsen Gambo of 7th century moved his capital to Lhasa. Samye Monastery is the first Buddhist monastery of Tibet and is a testimony of the acceptance of Buddhism in Bon dominated Tibet.

Potala and Norbulingkha palaces, Drepung and Sera – the two great Gelug Monasteries, Jorkhang Temple – the ancient Buddhist temple and Barkhor Street make the most interesting heritage tours . Ancient Yambulakhang palace, Tradruk Temple and burial mounds of Tibetan kings are worth visiting.
