Then drive to Shigatse and be wrapped again in the endless vistas of the Tibetan plateau. In Tibet, driving is sightseeing.

Morning time to visit Tashilumpo Monastery which was built in 1447, spectacular tombs of Panchen Lamas; after this drive to Gyangtse, visit Palkor Monastery and Palchoi Pagoda, far view Tzong fortress. On the way, stop off and visit Maracaju la glacier. Sightseeing to Yamdrotso Lake which is one of the three holy lakes in Tibet (another are Namtso Lake and Manasarovar). After crossing Gangbala Pass which is over 4850m, then drive to Lhasa City along Lhasa River.

Our guided tour will follow by visiting - Jokhang Gompa - Jokhang is the holiest Gompa in Tibet. Shuffle among the pilgrims, butter lamps permeating the air, and find gruesome Gods in hidden annexes. There is always a procession of devout Tibetans through the complex. After walking the holy inner circle complete a circuit of the Barkor, the market surrounding the Jokhang, for good luck. It is the best market to shop for all things Tibetan. Drepung and Sera Monasteries – Sera is one of the best preserved monasteries in Tibet, renown for its lively debating sessions in the courtyard each afternoon. Within its whitewashed walls and golden roofs, several hundred monks live and study. Drepung was founded in the 14th century and was once the largest Gompa in the world. These days the figure has been reduced to several hundred, but there is still much of interest to see here, as the structure escaped relatively unscathed during the Cultural Revolution. Norbulingka&
