After transferred to hotel, the rest of the day you will be free to wander around the city on your own but try not to overtax yourself.

Day 02: Lhasa (B+D)
Overnight: Lhasa, 3★/4★
Sights: Drepung Monastery, Sera 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.
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, monk 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.


Day 03: Lhasa (B)
Overnight: Lhasa, 3★/4★
Sights: Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street

Potala Palace 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.
Included on UNESCO's World Heritage list in 2000 as part of Potala Palace, 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.
Located in Lhasa Old Town, 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.
