Upon your arrival at Lhasa Gonggar Airport, where the altitude is 3,650 meters above sea level, our guide will greet you with a warm smiling face, holding a sign with your name on it. Then we will transfer you to Tsetang and check in at the hotel in about 1.5 hours. Tsetang is 87 km east of the airport and 191 km southeast of Lhasa. We would like to suggest you have a good rest at the hotel for the remaining day to acclimate the high altitude in case of acute mountain sickness.

Day02 Testang - Lhasa
Samye Monastery
After breakfast, our guide will pick you up at the hotel and transfer you to visit the Yumbu Lakang and the Trandruk Monastery. Yumbu Lakang is the first palace in Tibet. It became famous since Songtsan Gambo of the Tubo Kingdom (629-846) and Princess Wencheng used it as their summer residence. It was reconstructed as a monastery during the reign of the 5th Dalai Lama. Trandruk Monastery was built during the reign of Songtsan Gambo and was famous for its precious Pearl Thangka. 

Afterwards, we will transfer you to Lhasa. En route, visit the Samye Monastery, the first Buddhist monastery in Tibet history. At the end of the day, we will arrive in Lhasa and check in at the hotel.

After lunch, following the morning activities, we will continue our visit to the Sera Monastery where there is an opportunity to witness the monks debating sutras supplemented with gestures. Then we will visit the nearby Norbulingka Park, a masterpiece of Tibetan art.

After the trip is completed, we will transfer you back to the hotel.
