Tibet Tour

   6 Days    Trip Id ( 001-A-85)

Tibet, a land situated on the roof of the world, is a land of mystical Buddhism,  an ancient Buddhist culture with centuries-old monasteries and breathtaking landscapes. Along with the very unique landscape, Tibet preserves historical relics, Buddhist scriptures, arts, crafts, and the very pure Buddhism that attracts countless globetrotters.

6 days Tibet Tour from Nepal is a fly-in fly-out tour that is very short on time, but full of adventure. The tour starts with a day excursion to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the temple of Pashupatinath, Stupa of Boudhanath and Swayambhunath, and the very famous Kathmandu Durbar Square complex.

It continues with a very scenic and beautiful Trans-Himalayan flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa. On reaching Lhasa we set off for Tibet’s highlights tour. The highlights include the UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Potala Palace, Norbulingka (the Jewelled Park) a palace and a man-made horticultural park, and Jokhang temple (a perfect example of blended architecture); centuries-old monasteries like Drepung (built during the 14th century) and Sera Monastery and the bustling markets of the Barkhor.

Overall, after enjoying a Hinduism-influenced settlement, you can enjoy a clear picture of Buddhism-influenced settlement in a single trip. Therefore, Tibet is one of the must-see destinations in the world.
