Day 02: Lhasa
Activities: Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street

Potala Palace: it is the landmark of Lhasa, and one of the great wonders of world architecture. Potala Palace, winter palace of the Dalai Lama since the 7th century, symbolizes Tibetan Buddhism and its central role in the traditional administration of Tibet. The complex, comprising the White and Red Palaces with their ancillary buildings, is built on Red Mountain in the centre of Lhasa Valley, at an altitude of 3,700m.
Jokang Temple: included on UNESCO's World Heritage list in 2000 as part of the Potala Palace , the Jokhang Temple is located in central Lhasa. With an area of 25,100 square meters (about six acres), it is the ultimate pilgrimage destination for Tibetan Pilgrims. In front of the entrance to Jokhang is a forecourt that is perpetually crowded with pilgrims polishing the flagstones with their prostrations.
Barkhor Street: located in the old town of Lhasa, Barkhor Street is a very ancient round street surrounding Jokhang Temple. It's said that in 647, the first Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo (617-650) built Jokhang Temple. Due to its magnificence, it quickly attracted thousands of Buddhist pilgrims. As a result, a trodden path appeared. It was paved by hand-polished stone boards. Though it is not broad, it accommodates thousands of pilgrims and tourists every day. Varied shops stand on its both sides and thousands of floating stands are on every corner.
Overnight: Lhasa


Day 03: Lhasa
Activities: Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery

Drepung Monastery: situated at the foot of Mt Gambo Utse, 5km from the western suburb of Lhasa, Drepung Monastery is known as the most important monastery of Gelugpa in Tibetan Buddhism. Covering an area of 250,000 sq meters, Drepung Monastery is the largest-scale monastery among its kind. Seen from afar, its grand white construction gives the appearance of a heap of rice. Thus the name was given, Drepung literarily means collecting rice in Tibetan.
Sera Monastery: located at the foot of Tatipu Hill in the northern suburb of Lhasa, Sera Monastery is dedicated to the Gelugpa or Yellow Hat Sect, a branch of Tibetan Buddhism, and built it in 1419 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Sera literarily means wild rose in the Tibetan. When the monastery was built, the hill behind it was covered with wild roses in bloom, the name was thus decided. Between 3pm~5pm from Monday to Friday, debating is held in the monastery’s debating courtyard, which is a sight so extraordinary and enchanting even you don’t understand a word they’re saying.
Overnight: Lhasa

 

Day 04: Lhasa > Draksumtso > Nyingtri (480km/13hrs)
Activities: Draksumtso Lake, Shuba Ancient Fort

Draksumtso Lake: Draksum-tso(3470m), and particularly its monastery island, is a photographer’s dream. Apart from the sheer beauty of the lake and its surrounding 6000m peaks, the site has strong connections to Gesar of Ling, the semi-mythical ruler of eastern Tibet, and Guru Rinpoche, the Indian sage, both of whom are said to have resided at the lake. The highlight of the lake is the charming Tsodzong Monastery(the fortress on the lake), a small Nyingmapa chapel sited on a photogenic island just off the southern shore.
Shuba Ancient Fort: an easy accessible group of half-ruined towers, known as the Shuba Ancient Fort, stands on the main highway, 7km east of Bahel. These five magnificent towers are said to date from the reign of Songtsen Gampo.

Known as a fairyland where gods live in with scenic beauties, it has special breathtaking scenery in every season. Also, it is 1 of the best spot to watch the Namjagbarwa (the highest peak in Nyingtri with an elevation of 7782m).
Tashigang Village: surrounded by fields of deep green barley and bright yellow rape-seed, famed by forested mountains, Tashigan Village, with its pigs and chickens roaming free, is made up of a handful of large stone Tibetan block home. This is a wonderful chance to get to know local Tibetan life and eat genuine Tibetan home-cooked food, and the countryside offers an almost endless selection of walks.
