DAY 1   Arrival in Lhasa
Whether you arrive in Lhasa by train or by plane, your tour guide will meet you at the train station or at the airport to take you to your hotel and help you get checked in. Along the way into downtown Lhasa from the airport, you will be able to see the Yarlung Tsangpo/Bhamaputra River along the way – the largest and longest river in Tibet. Once you are at your hotel, you will have time to rest and relax to become acclimatized to the higher altitude, or, if you are ready to get started sightseeing, you can visit Potala Square with its different colored fountains and fantastic views of the Potala Palace.

Meals: None

Accommodation: Overnight at Lhasa 3-Star hotel

DAY 2   Lhasa tour - Potala Palace, Jokhang and Barkhor street
Today we will start off with the fantastic Potala Palace, which historically served as the winter home of the Dalai Lama. It was first used in the 7th century by the 33rd king of Tibet. The most valuable collections in the Potala Palace are the gilded burial stupas of the former Dalai Lamas and the meditation cave of the 33rd great king of Tibet. After lunch, we will move on to the Jokhang Temple, which was also founded in the 7th century by the 33rd great king of Tibet to promote the Buddhist religion. Inside you can see the statue of the Buddha Sakyamuni as he was at the age of twelve – this is perhaps the most venerated object in Tibetan Buddhism. Around the temple is Barkhor Street where you can perform the “Kora” (a religious circuit around a sacred building or mountain) with pilgrims and locals. The Barkhor market is also a great place to pick up locally made handicrafts and souvenirs.

Meals: Breakfast   None

DAY 3   Lhasa tour - Drepung Monastery/Sera Monastery
This morning we will visit the Drepung Monastery – one of the great three Gelug monasteries of Tibet. Founded in 1416 by Jamyang Choge, on Tosngkhapa’s main disciples, the Drepung Monastery is home of Ganden Palace, which formerly served as the Dalai Lama’s palace before later moving on to the Potala Palace. In the afternoon we will move on to see another of the great three of the Gelug monasteries in Tibet – the Sera Monastery. Founded in 1419 by another main disciple of Tsongkhapa, Jamchen Chojey, the main attraction of this monastery is the lively scene of the monks debating Buddhist scriptures in the courtyard behind the monastery in the afternoon.

The lake is surrounded numerous snow-capped mountain and in the distance you will be able to see the beautiful and holy Mount Nyenchen Khangsar (peak elevation 7191 meters), which is the highest mountain near Lhasa.

Und zu guter Letzt, besuchten wir den Everest Base Camp (Tibet Seite) am 1. Mai 2016.

Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis und wundervolle Erfahrung, vor allem Everest für das erste Mal in Sunrise.

EBC ist über mehr als 3000 Meter hoch. Wir sind nicht Kletterer noch Bergsteiger, mit Alter über 40 Jahren und von der Tropic Land.

Mit allen die perfekte Kombination, die Höhenlage Krankheit ist wirklich ein großes Problem für uns ... also da 6 Monat vor der Reise, die wir machen einige auszuführen als Zubereitungen wie Schwimmen, treatmill, Joggen und Yoga.
Und es funktioniert!!

Wir teilen konnten einige Tipps :
- wir kamen Anfang Mai und es war ca. -3 Grad Celsius am Morgen und 14 in der Nacht am EBC ...

- Aufenthalt im Zelt am EBC, denn es ist im Besitz der Tibetan Haben.
Die Tibetan Leute sind schön, warm, vertrauten und kindhearted. Von dort haben Sie Tiefe Erfahrung der lokalen.

- machen Sie sich keine Sorgen, wenn Sie nicht über die richtige Schlafsack, weil das Zelt anbieten, da viele Decke weil man braucht.

- sie bieten auch die Yak Decke, und es ist sehr warm.

- wenn wahrscheinliche, bringen Sie nur Dinge, die Sie EBC auf dem kleinen Tasche. Da Sie nur eine Nacht dort.

- Essen auf Magenschmerzen richtig zu vermeiden.

- wenn man nicht essen kann lokalen Essen, bringen Sie einige High Energy Snack und heiße Schokolade.

- die Aussicht auf dem Weg zu EBC wirklich spektakulär. Bereiten Sie sich also die Batterie Ihrer Kamera. Bringen Sie extra, wenn hierherkommen. auch Ihre Ausdauer und bereiten Sie sich darauf vor (machen Sie sich nicht einschlafen).

Für uns ... wir glauben nun, dass sehen Everest ist wahrscheinliche, selbst wenn Sie nicht ein Kletterer oder Mountaineer ...

Zu dieser Zeit, denn wir stehen in front of the North Face mit Gigantischen Everest danken wir dem Herrn Jesus und schließlich konnten wir sagen "Everest ... wir sehen Sie!"

Also, wenn man kann sehen, dass es ... Gehen Sie!

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

A hard group to please! He is such a beautiful person. I hope you meet him one day. I seem to dream of Tibet every night. THANK YOU Amy also for the contacts places to go in Chengdu. A beautiful experience. Despite the typhoon in Hong Kong we did eventually get home safely. Lots of love to you : ) : )

Hello Alex,  

I am sorry that it took me so long to give you a feedback, I was pretty busy the recent days weeks and hope you can understand that.  
Let's come to the feedback.
Tour guide: The tour guide (Ms. Qimei) was excellent! Her English speaking ability was very good. Additionally, she was welcoming, friendly and could score with profound knowledge about culture, history and environment.
Driver: The driver was all the time friendly and drove according to the rules. we all felt very safe during the trip.
Hotels: The hotels were also well chosen. The breakfast matched the western standard.
Vehicle: The vehicle was overall very comfortable.  
Additional comment: Overall, I was very happy with the tour. The only thing, I would have wished for is to have had a detailed itinerary beforehand. Sometimes I was not sure, how exactly the next day was planned.  
Best regards, Nweth Sureshkumar

Zuerst dankte ich an unseren Reiseleiter Lobsang. Er führt uns einen der höchsten WC in Tibet besuchen, bevor wir die Wallfahrt nach diesem heiligen Schrein am Dala Lama gebaut. Er verwendeten Materialien aus der Fuß des Berges und es entstand ein See gibt es in Ordnung für eine ausgewogene Landschaft. Blick auf den größten Platz in Lhasa können gesehen vom Palast. Als wir an dem Tag und zwar fast jeden Tag kamen, kann man hunderte und Tausende von Menschen singen und heftig auf dem Platz. Viele religiöse Trefferstelle waren in das Palace gespeichert.  Viele Gläubige waren immer noch durch Türen in der Palast betete. Es gab viele Buddha Satzung in den verschiedenen Zimmern mit verzierten Perlen schmücken. Wer kann von der spirituellen Kraft, berührt die Amv (Lehrer Sinn) repräsentiert werden.
