Detailed itinerary:
Day 1: Arriving Lhasa

Upon arrival at airport, be greeted and offered a white scarf (called Kada) in a Tibet traditional way which brings you good luck. Then drive to the city proper (3650 m). Stay at the hotel for adapting to the high attitude upon your arrival. It is helpful to take things easy for the first few days, and try to drink more water than before.

Day 2: Lhasa Sightseeing [B]

In the morning visit Potala Palace, then walk on the Jokang Temple. And Barkhor street surrounding Jokhang, a big free market with its prolific stalls for selling local specialties.

Right after that, drive back to Lhasa, and go for a family visit on the way.
