We stop at Shigatse to see Tashilhunpo monastery. It is the most important monastery outside Lhasa. We stop at Gyantse to see the golden pagoda or Palgor Chorten considered as one of the most famous monument in Tibet. The chorten was built in 15th century for worship only. The top of the pagoda is made of copper heavily gilded with gold. On the last day of the travel we drive along the shore of Yamdrok-lake known as “Turquoise Lake.” The road gradually climbs up to 4786 meter Kamba-la (pass) and descends to the valley. The drive from the floor of the valley is spectacular all along the bank of Brahmaputra river, past yak skin boat and giant carved Buddha, through Tibetan villages and then into the valley that leads to Lhasa. As you approach Lhasa you get first glimpse of the golden roofs of the Potala Palace. Fly back to Kathmandu to catch your onward flight
Most of Tibet, including Lhasa, is at an elevation of more than 3658 meter (12000 feet). The sight of pilgrims prostrating themselves in front of Jhokang must be seen to be comprehended. Tibetans from remote part of the country makes their pilgrimage to Lhasa. It is pilgrimage of their lifetime. As you go around Jokhang temple, Lhasa’s cathedral, you come across with pilgrims prostrating themselves, tall Khampas with red braids in their hair, Chinese tourists, and traders selling goods that you cannot imagine.
The flight over the Himalaya makes spectacular crossing rarely seen anywhere in the world. The lush green colour in Nepal slowly fades away and arid and dull gray plateau appears which in turn turns into blue sky as you land at Lhasa. The highest mountain in the world, Mt.Everest, and another 8000-meter peak of Mt.Makalu dominates the breathtaking view.
