DAY 1   Arrival in Lhasa - Lhasa Airport Pick Up
Upon your arrival at the Lhasa airport, your tour guide will greet you and escort you to your hotel and help you get checked in. You will have the rest of the day and evening to rest and relax to become acclimatized to the higher altitude of Tibet. 
Travel Tip:
With its much higher elevation, some visitors may experience symptoms of altitude sickness. We recommend taking everything slowly, getting plenty of rest the first day and staying very well hydrated by drinking plenty of water to minimize the effects of the high altitude. Usually you will fine by the second day, but if you do experience severe and/ or worsening symptoms, please contact your tour guide or a member of our staff immediately.  

Meals: None

Accommodation: Lhasa Economic / Comfortable Hotel (Twin Sharing)

DAY 2   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.

DAY 3   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.

Nyenchen Khangsar glacier as seen from the Karola Pass.

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!!!

 EBC-Germany-0012

 Wir besuchten EBC durch online www.Reisennachtibet.com. Wir reisten mit dem Minibus auf eine lange und holprig Road für über 9 Stunden von Shigatse, aber es lohnt sich absolut!

- Das Zelt war viel schöner als erwartet. Sehr atmosphärisch, und unsere ganze Reisegruppe zusammen in einem Zelt übernachten konnten. Das Bettzeug war sauber genug und sehr warm, obwohl die Kissen fühlten sich weniger sauber (und profitiert von überdacht in einem schön sauber Schal! ) . . . . . . . . . .
- Ich empfehle das vermeiden schrecklich Toiletten zu finden und insgesamt eine schöne, ruhige Lage in der Open Air!
- Wir wachten um 6 Uhr morgens zu Fuß zum Basislager der letzten 3 km, das viel schöner als mit dem Bus. Es gab keine cloudsz und die Aussicht war absolut bemerkenswert.
- Wir nahmen 125 mg zweimal täglich für die ganze Reise, liefen langsam, Alkohol und vermieden. Wir hatten keine altitude Krankheit, trotz Aufsteigende sehr schnell ( 1000 m zwischen Shigatse und EBC) .

Dear Nancy,

How nice to hear from you! Thanks for your email and yes, I have been back to England since last Thursday after the wonderful trip to Tibet you helped organizing. I hope all is well with you and you have had a “Golden Week” holiday. 
Overall the trip was excellent, the tour showed different part of Tibet and had the right balance of supervision and free time in Lhasa especially. Good points were your email contact which was always prompt and informative, helpful and friendly. This helped build trust and confidence in the journey. I also thought highly of the tour guide who showed us around, he was very patient and kind to us, most of all I was impressed by his deep knowledge and genuine belief in Tibetan Buddhism.
That’s all that I can think of at the moment, but I really did want to thank you for a fantastic trip to Tibet, I’m left with wanting to return and see more. It was very thought provoking and I loved it all!
Many thanks again and best wishes!  Kathy
