Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Lhasa

Stop At: Potala Palace, No.35 Gongqian Alley, Beijing Middle Road Cheng Guan District, Lhasa 850000 China
Welcome to Tibet. As soon as you arrive in Lhasa, our professional tour guide will greet you and give you a warm welcome at the airport or the train station. Then, you will be driven to your hotel. The day is free for you when you arrive at the hotel. You can have a visit to Potala Square. But I suggest you’d better have a good rest in your hotel because you need to have enough time to adapt to the high altitude sickness. Drink more water, eat more fruits, and avoid fierce activities. Do not go far away from your hotel, because you may be in trouble if you have no tour guide with you.
