Day 2 Lhasa (B/L/D)
Highlight of the day is the mysterious and sacred Potala Palace, former living quarters of the Dalai Lama. Then in the afternoon, have a view of the Jokhang Temple, which is the spiritual center of Tibet. Everyday, pilgrims come to prostrate themselves before the statue of Sakyamuni lavishly enthroned in silver and gold. The temple is the product of Han, Tibetan and Nepalese architectural techniques. Then stroll around the Barkhor Street, a big free market with its prolific stalls selling local specialties.

Day 3 Lhasa (B/L/D)
In the morning, visit Drepung Monastery, about 8 km west of central Lhasa and was once the largest Monastery with over 10,000 monks. Later after lunch, visit Sera Monastery which is around 5 km north of central Lhasa and is surrounded by many small temples. Compared with Drepung Monastery, Sera monastery is more serene. The 'Buddhism Scriptures Debating' in Sera is very famous.

Day 4 Lhasa-Yamdrok Lake-Lhasa (B/L/D)
Today we drive to visit Yamdrok Lake, one of the three largest lakes of Tibet, lies about a hundred kilometers' distance to the southwest of Lhasa. A lot of colorful ducks and geese are swimming on the surface of the lake. There is also plenty of natural fodder for the fish in the lake. The coast of the lake is an ideal pasture. All these make a quite intoxicating picture.

Day 5 DEPART Lhasa (B)
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your onward flight.

 

Travel Tips: The elevation in Lhasa is 3800 meters about the sea level. You need to take a half day off to acclimate the high altitude. We would suggest you drink water as much as you can and eat some fruit which will help you acclimate the high altitude. Please do not do any exercise or take a walk in this half day. Please restrict from smoking and drinking alcohol.

 

Travel Tips: As for the recent restrictions policy, Foreigner tourists are required to book round trip flight/train tickets. Otherwise the TTB will not issue the Tibet Enter Permit.

 

 

Tibet Travel Permits & Tibet Visa

There are two kinds of permits (Tibet visa) for traveling in Tibet: the entry permit (TTB permit) and the Alien's travel permit (PSB permit). You can get them easily from Chinabravo Tour if you have already issued a tourist visa.

TTB Permit - Tibet Entry Permit (Tibet visa)
You need to show this permit when you check in at the airport or train station when you want to travel to Lhasa from any other cities in China. Actually, whenever you buy a flight or a train ticket to Lhasa you need to show this permit. TTB permits are only issued to the tourists who will travel with escort tours organized by local Destination Management Company in China.

PSB Permit - Alien's Travel Permit
If you want to travel further to the "unopened" areas, you need an Alien's travel permit issued by PSB of Tibet. It is called "Alien's Travel Permit" or "PSB permit".

How to get the travel permits?
Because we are a Destination Management Company in China, it's quite easy to get a travel permit for you with our help. Simply send us your
1. Passport cover page with your photo and details;
2. Valid China visa page (Must be valid upon the time of application);
3. Your entry date into Lhasa/Tibet and itinerary;
4. 100% payment will need to remit to our Company account prior to processing and upon completion.

Note: Lhasa Public Security Bureau will not issue any Tibet permit to individual foreigner. So, please apply through Chinabravo Tours prior to your departure to Tibet.

Important Issues about Tibet Travel Permit
1. People of different walks of life can get Tibet permit through a travel agency except diplomats, journalists, and government officials who should travel to Tibet under the arrangement by the Foreign Affairs Office of Tibet Government.

2. After having a permit, a travel agency could buy you the air tickets, and you can pass the check-in at the airport and the check point reroute with the permit.

3. Only the guide could hold the permit after you establish yourself on Tibet land. You are not allowed to bring with it and travel to anywhere you want because except Lhasa you need another permit named as "Aliens' Permit". Otherwise if you are stopped by the police you will be sent out of Tibet or have trouble politically and economically. Furthermore, the travel agency which helped to get you the permit will also be in trouble.

Therefore seriously not any legitimate travel agency could sell you the Tibet permit if you do not book a tour with them. We don't think you would like to be in trouble due to a "sold" Tibet permit after you pay a lot of money for the tour.

4. There is a service charge (by the government) to get the Tibet permit. And it takes time, paper work, transportation fee and delivery fee for us to get a permit for you, so ATT will charge an extra fee for the permits.

Special Notes


Dinning in Tibet

Whether you arrange your meals by yourself or our company and don't forget to taste the local tibetan food and its flavor. Of course you can also have the western food, even the India food, Nepal food. Etc

There are various kinds of restaurants along the street, especially around Barkhor area. The western food restaurants, India restaurants, Nepal restaurants, Tibetan food restaurants, just choose the one you want to taste. Go out of Barkhor area, you will find many chinese food restaurants, especially along the Dhekyi Road, Tianhai road, there are various kinds of chinese food restaurants, it is a good experience to have a try.

Tibetan cuisine is quite distinct from that of its neighbors, since only a few crops (not including rice) grow at such high altitude. The most important crop is barley. Dough made from barley flour, called tsampa, is the staple food of Tibetan. [1] This is either rolled into noodle or made into steamed dumpling called momo. Meat dishes are likely to be yak, goat, or mutton, often dried, or cooked into a spicy stew with potatoes. Mustard seed is cultivated in Tibet, therefore feature heavily in its cuisine. Yak yoghurt, butter and cheese are frequently eaten, and well-prepared yoghurt is considered something of a prestige item.
