Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Lhasa

Stop At: Potala Palace, No.35 Gongqian Alley, Beijing Middle Road Cheng Guan District, Lhasa 850000 China
Lhasa can be arrived by both a direct train or a direct flight. After you arrive in Lhasa, you will meet your tour guide at the train station or the airport. Then, your tour guide will take you to your hotel immediately by the private vehicle. You’d better have a good rest when you check in your hotel because you need time to adapt to the high altitude sickness. You should avoid fierce activities on Tibetan Plateau because of the low oxygen content. If you want to go outside, you can go for a walk around the Potala Square. Here is an ideal site to take some colorful photos.
