Tibet Tour

Need Enquiry

Tibet's dramatic beauty can't be summed up by the few names of iconic places there—Potala Palace, the Himalayas, and the majestic Tibetan Plateau. One must see Tibet to understand why it is on every traveler's bucket list. The clouds like cotton scattered in the blue sky, crystal lakes, silvery snow mountain, vast grasslands, and the yaks in the backdrop of colorful Tibetan decorations are some of the sights that have delighted visitors to Tibet and made this place one of the most legendary destinations in the world.

Tips for today: A number of people arriving in Lhasa will have some symptoms of altitude sickness as a result of the great change in altitude. As the altitude sickness usually strikes five to eight hours after arriving in Lhasa, you are advised to have a good rest at the hotel on the first day. We suggest that visitors keep warm, not take a bath, smokers smoke as little as possible, and do not drink alcohol.
