Lhasa is the capital city of Tibet, which came into existence around 1300 years ago according to legends of Tibet. Located at an altitude of 3650 meters above sea level and situated on the north bank of Kyichu River, Lhasa, in Tibetan dialect means the ‘place of gods’. It is the center of politics, economy, culture, and religion in Tibet. The ancient and majestic monasteries and temples in the city have sheltered innumerable historical antiques, Buddhist scriptures, art, and craft. Over two million denizens reside in this land of affluent natural resources and primeval cultures.
The tour package of 5 days in Lhasa commences with a flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa which is similar to the feeling of taking a mountain flight in the morning hours in Nepal. This flight will provide you with the most picturesque mountain views along the beautiful Himalayas. In Lhasa, a Green Valley Nepal Treks representative will welcome you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel. The next days would be spent in enjoying the sightseeing of Lhasa city where you will observe the magnificent Potala palace, Norbulingka, Sera and Drepung Monastery, Jokhang temple, the bustling Barkhor Streets, and many more. The fourth day is spent on leisure. On the fifth day, a flight back to Kathmandu is scheduled.
