The beautiful buildings in Norbulingka are the great examples of the Gelug Sect's architectural masterpieces. With its charming natural scenery, this place has been an enjoyable garden for visiting and holding festivals.

Located in the west suburb of Lhasa City, Norbulingka was the summer resort for the Dalai Lamas to conduct business and meet visitors since the 7th Dalai Lama. In this sense, it is also called the Summer Palace in Tibet and it enjoys the same prestige as the Potala Palace. Originally built in the 1740's, the garden has been expanded to be the most attractive artificial garden in Tibet. Attraction Intro: Norbulingka

Hi, do you mean you want to go to lhasa from guangzhou and then fly from lhasa to dubai? I am sorry that there is no flight from lhasa to dubai, you may need to come back to guangzhou and fly from guangzhou to dubai. If you go to lhasa, most probably you will suffer mountain sickness. I strongly advise you to read this page for more information about the sickness:

Anyone interested to go to Tibet in the week of July 20? Just told by local agencies that foreigners cannot go alone. Have to be accompanied by local tour guide and cannot join the local tour. This means we have to hire a driver, a tour guide, and a vehicle at least. Otherwise cannot get the permit. The cost is high. So far we have 2 people: 1 male 1 female, looking for someone who would like to travel together. Plan to start from Chengdu. Pls contact me if you want to know the details:|ninazhang1.

Not very sure about what you meant of local tour. As I know, you could participate in a tour supplied by any international travel agancy in China. You may look for a reliable one.
BTW, I have read an artilce introducing the Tibet travel permit on this website:
