DAY 2   Flight from Chengdu/Chongqing to Nyingtri - Drive to Pomi
Today we will take an early 7:30 a.m. flight from Chengdu, arriving in Nyingtri around 9:15 a.m. After we have arranged the proper credentials, we’ll proceed to the 2,600-year old Nyingtri Cypress Forest, pass through the Sela area and then move on to the aboriginal Lulang Forests. Beneath perennially snow-capped mountains, the Lulang Forest bursts with verdant new life in spring and blazes with vibrant red colors in autumn, providing incredible scenery no matter what season it is.

Meals: Breakfast   None  

Accommodation: Stay overnight at Pomi

DAY 3   Pomi to Rawok Lake (163 kilometers, 2-hour drive on asphalt roads)
This morning we will journey on to Rawok Lake, located in southwestern Basu County. Rawok Lake is the main headstream of the Yarlung Tsangpo River, fed by the famous Laigu Glacier that extends down all the way to the side of the lake. This beautiful lake is bounded on both sides by grassy lands filled with unique plant life, which makes for fantastic photos with the colorful plants contrasting with the snow-covered mountains in the background. After our visit to the lake, we will drive on to Bomi to stay overnight.

Meals: Breakfast   None  

Accommodation: Stay overnight at Pomi

DAY 4   Bomi – Lulang Forest – Mt. Sekyimla – Great Cypress Nature Reserve
A scenic drive from Bayi Town to Bomi today will take us through the Lulang Forest, a high altitude (3700 meters) forest that features dense bushes along with spruce and pine trees on both sides of Castle Peak. The clouds in the distance hover over the snow-capped mountains with the endless green of the pine trees creating a beautiful pastoral landscape. From there we will drive on to Sekyim-la Pass (elevation 4720 meters) and enjoy the great Mt. Namjia Bawa (elevation 7700 meters) in the distance. To cap off this day, we will visit the Great Cypress Nature Reserve area, located 15 kilometers southeast of the Bayi Town. The most impressive tree in the reserve is an ancient king cypress, about 50 meters tall and estimated to be 2,500 years old.

Meals: Breakfast   None  

Accommodation: Overnight at 3-star hotel at Bayi Town

DAY 5   Bayi Town to Darksum-tso - Lhasa (470 kilometers)
Today’s schedule will take us on a drive to Lhasa from Nyingchi. Along the way we will visit the “Switzerland of Tibet” - Darksum-tso, a beautiful lake, which lies in the valley in a massive crescent shape. 12 kilometers long and hundreds of meters wide, the lake spans a total area of 6000 mu. Abundant wildlife complements the natural beauty of the lake, with yellow duck, white crane and countless fish living in the picture-perfect lake area. Once we have had plenty of time to explore and take photos of the mountain as it is magically reflected in a mirror image on the lake, we’ll drive on to Lhasa to spend the night.

Meals: Breakfast   None  

Accommodation: Overnight at 3-star hotel in Lhasa

DAY 6   Lhasa City Sightseeing - Potala Palace - Jokhang Temple - Barkhor Street
After breakfast at the hotel, we will visit the incredible Potala Palace – the highest palace in the world. As we climb to the entrance gate, you will have a spectacular view over all of Lhasa. After exploring the numerous interesting chapels and learning about the traditional culture and history of the palace and the city, we will move on to the spiritually significant Jokhang Temple, one of the most important temples in Tibetan Buddhism. To see the “real” Lhasa, we’ll stroll through Barkhor Street with its thriving local market where you can pick up some local Tibetan, Nepalese and Indian handicrafts and souvenirs.
Tips for Visiting Potala Palace
1. The number of visitors to the palace is strictly limited to 2,300 per day. Visitors can only visit during the time specified on the admission ticket.
2. Admission tickets to visit the Potala Palace are sold out almost every day, so it is strongly recommended to book your tickets several days in advance. 
3. There are many steps at the Potala Palace, so it’s best to take it slowly to avoid possible altitude discomfort.
4. Visitors should respect the rules while visiting. Do not wear hats, wear revealing clothes or step on thresholds as these actions violate local customs.
5. Photography and the taking of videos are forbidden inside the Potala Palace.
6. A security search will take place at the entrance to the palace. Explosives, flammables, knives, lighters and even water bottles are not allowed inside the Potala Palace.

Meals: Breakfast   None  

Accommodation: Overnight at Lhasa 3-Star hotel

DAY 7   Lhasa City Sightseeing - Sera Monastery – Drepung Monastery
Today features visits to 2 of the most important monasteries in Tibetan Buddhism – the Drepung and Sera Monasteries. Drepung Monastery is located on the hillside west of Lhasa – at one time the world’s largest monastery with about 10,000 monks living there. A pleasant walk up the hill leads to the solemn ambience inside the monastery’s many halls and chapels. After Drepung, we will move on to the Sera Monastery. The main highlight of the Sera Monastery is watching the crowd of monks debating inside the shady courtyard behind the main temple. Every day except Sunday, hundreds of red-robed monks assemble in small groups and practice their debating skills – a very impressive sight to behold, as the monks are very animated in their debates about the various attributes of Buddhist scriptures.

Meals: Breakfast   None  

Accommodation: Overnight at Lhasa 3-Star hotel

DAY 8   Lhasa - Yamdrok Lake – Karola Glacier – Gyantse (Kumbum Monastery) – Shigatse

You will want to have your camera at the ready for the turquoise waters of Yamdrok Lake, which is one of the three holy lakes of Tibet, and the beautiful Mt. Nyenchen Khangsar glacier as seen from the Karola Pass. Later on we’ll be able to visit the Karola Glacier before continuing along the southern Friendship Highway to Gyantse, where you will be able to see the famous Gyantse Kumbum, one of the most stunning architectural wonders in Tibet. Late in the afternoon we will continue on to Shigatse where we will spend the night.

We’ll also stop by the Rongbuk Monastery – the world’s highest altitude monastery before spending the night at the Everest Base Camp.

Dear David,  
This 8 days tour in Tibet is really incredible and unforgettable. Organization of this tour has been perfect and I was very lucky to join a group with a funny young Chinese lady and 4 very pleasant Germans. it is the ideal size of a group for a good We have all really appreciate our guide, Tashi Peida. For his deep knowledge of the Tibetan civilization and religion. his very good English level and above all, his very pleasant company and his permanent smile. He is more than a guide: a friend The timing has been well managed by Taishi to avoid loss of time on road and to arrive on the Everest tent camp in time to enjoy the incredible view of Qomolangma before the sunset. Accommodation is 3 hotels has been perfect everywhere. The only negative point is that we have understood that our driver didn't have the proper licence to drive our minibus. This is the reason why we had a second driver to go through some check points  Regarding your personal service, David. let me give you the same rating than the level of my worry at the beginning of the preparation of this tour: ) : ) Thanks a lot for your patience and your efficiency to obtain my Tibet Visa and a train ticket at the last minute. Great job. I only regret not to have had the pleasure to meet you in Lhasa. Anyhow, take good care my dear friend!

Hello Amy & Tour team,  

Thank you, we have reached home now safety after a wonderful tour of Tibet. I would like to say a few points about the GOOD service that were given to us! Firstly special thank you to Amy for being organized about the tour, telling us first hand about the tour objectives, organized itinerary! We were organized both mentally and physically as all of our doubts regarding this tour were cleared before we left from home to the tour and the information that was provided met exactly what was there on ground. Real happy about that.  Amy followed up day by day on our health conditions, provided us tips and tricks on how to maintain the best of health on such altitudes and it worked, I would say that were taken through the trip by such an ease due to this, KUDOS to Amy!  Talking to Amy all these days, now she has become a good friend on WhatsApp! :) Even though I have not had an opportunity to meet her in Chengdu yet. I would say that special mention to Lobsong as well, he was an AMAZING tour guide, I have travelled to 6 countries this year, I have not seen anyone as good as he is till now. Thank you for everything!!!

Thank you Shirley,My brother in law has traveled with your agency about two years ago,  so you come highly recommended : )  
The tour you suggested sounds perfect. Could you give us some other dates too please for a week. earlier than the 26th in June and a week later please and the cost. I have to share the information with my friends and then we will decide accordingly. Two of us will be travelling from Hong Kong.  I have a British passport, my husband has a diplomatic passport (he is from Pakistan, posted as Counsel General in Hong Kong). Two or three people will be travelling from Pakistan to Hong Kong and from there to China and Tibet.  
Two more questions please:  1. can you offer a discount if we have a larger group? 2. Can you also help us with travel options from Hong Kong? Thank you in advance for your help!

 Es war eine unvergessliche und wunderbare Erfahrung in Tibet. Die Höhe wurde uns jedoch etwas aber wir endlich zu EBC und das Gefühl war surreal, besonders sehenswert Everest für das erste Mal in den Sonnenaufgang. Die Leute hier sind großartig gehören Grüner Leguan, fast alle trafen wir auf unserer Reise. Wir machten uns unsere Arrangements durch Dolmo, und sie war wirklich zuständig, vertrauenswürdig und geduldig. die Logistik und Verwaltungen war perfekt. Unser Führer Rooney war wie unser älterer Bruder sich gut gekümmert und wir uns auf dem Weg mit ihm wirklich sicher fühlen. Er ist tibetischen und gaben uns eine sehr Tiefe Erfahrung der lokalen Kultur. Unser Fahrer Songtnam war immer am Lächeln und hielt uns sicher auf den Straßen ... alles war wie ein Uhrwerk. Eines der besten Aufenthalte, den wir je hatten. Ich hoffe, dass ich die Gelegenheit haben werde wieder hierher zu kommen. Letzte Sache empfehlen ... ich werde in das Zelt in EBC ... war eine gute Erfahrung.

Hello Nancy,
I really enjoy the my Tibet tour. First when I started looking for a travel agency in Tibet it was hard because I did not know which one to choose. I started emailing you and asking my thousand questions and you were very nice and answer to all my questions patiently.  
I would definitely recommend your company. The guy at the hotel in Lhasa was very nice with us. He helped me a lot when my bank block my debit card and l was not able the withdraw money. He went with me to find a place where I can do international phone call to my bank in Canada. Our guide Djajie was a very good guide, vary helpful, he said to us a lot of information but because English is not my first language, so I did not remember all the information he told us about Tibet.
The driver was very nice, always happy and singing . Too bad he was not speaking English so we were not able to communicate with him without the guide.I would appreciate sometime they eat with us at same table. they always eat at a separate table. Tibetans were nice with us, they looked at us because we were tourists but they were always smiling to us and saying HeIIo. They wanted to take pictures with us, especially with the Australian light brown long hair.
All hotel are well located in the city. For picture, I will send you more than you asked because I like to take pictures. I am the only one in the tour who have a picture of the group.  Thanks!
