Lhasa/Yamdrok Lake/Lhasa 4 Days Tour

ReTweet this thread
After a classic tour in Lhasa(Potala Palace, Johkang Temple, and Barkhor Street, etc.), you will have a detour to Yamdrok Lake, one of the three largest lakes in Tibet. The water is as clean as crystal, the glimmering water will shock you in sunshine. Carry yourself a sense of worship when standing beside the lake!

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.

Day 3: 

Drive to Yamdrok Lake from Lhasa in the morning. You will enjoy the spectacular scenery. Yamdrok Lake is a coiling, many-armed body of water, shaped like a scorpion. It doubles back on itself on the western side, effectively creating a large island within its reaches. For Tibetans, it is one of the four holy lakes of Tibet. And the home of wrathful deities. The lake lies several hundred meters below the road, and in clear weather is a fabulous shade of deep turquoise. Far in the distance is the huge massif of Mt. Nojin Kangtsang (7191m)
