As well as savoring Lhasa, the spiritual center of the country, this journey to mysterious Tibet travels off the beaten path, exploring the religion and countryside.
Of course you wander the ancient palaces and holy sites of Lhasa, such as the Jokhang, Norbulingka, and Potala, as well as the nearby monasteries of Sera and Drepung. But… in addition, driving out of the city, you cross the Nyanchhan Thangla Mountains, running parallel to the Himalayas, to visit Lake Nam Tso, the second largest of Tibet’s saltwater lakes.
The route also takes you to Reteng Monastery with wonderful views of the mountains, Drigung, an important monastery for sky burials in Tibet, and its neighbor, the charming nunnery of Terdrum.
In June, you can see the Drigung Cham Dance Festival; and in September, the Washing Festival.
