DAY 1   Lhasa Airport Pickup
In the morning we will transfer you from your Chengdu hotel to the airport for your flight to Lhasa. Your tour guide will greet you upon your arrival at Lhasa airport to transfer you to your hotel, where you will have the rest of the day to relax and acclimatize to the high altitude.
Travel tips:
Because Tibet lies at such a high altitude, it is important to remember to take everything slowly to minimize the symptoms of altitude sickness. Drink plenty of water and get plenty of sleep that first night – you should feel fine by the next day. However, if you feel extreme discomfort, please notify your tour guide immediately.

Meals: None

Accommodation: Overnight at Lhasa 3-Star hotel

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 on the various attributes of Buddhist scriptures.

The road conditions get rougher from the old Tingri Road as it runs parallel to the to the Himalayan mountain ranges and the Nepalese sides known as the Anapurna Ranges. The main road passes through the desolate plains of Digur Tang, with its enormous sand dunes contrasting with the neighboring snow peaks of Shishapangma and Langtang to the south.

 EBC-Germany-0013

Das ist eine fantastische Reise von Tibet. Ich vergesse nicht. Trotz Höhenkrankheit und eine lange Busfahrt von 2 Tagen, machte ich es zum Mt. Qomolangma Base Camp von 5200m.Nicht, was ich erwartet hatte. Erste Station war ein kleiner Parkplatz mit Händler verkaufen Tibetan Schmuck und Artefakte. Ein paar kleine Zelte serviert wie Hotels und Restaurants in der Nähe. Die Mini-Bust fuhr uns bis zu dem Denkmal mit Blick auf Basis in der Ferne .Trotz der Kälte Kargheit und der Lage, die Aussicht von Everest auf dem Weg war herrlich! Der Weg gewesen wäre wenn Sie litt zu anstrengenden Höhe.

 Lhasa-Germany-0017

Dies ist das wichtigste in Lhasa, wenn nicht ein verschwendetem Reise gemacht haben, oder auch beim nächsten Mal wieder zu sehen. Nehmen Sie es langsam, da gibt es viele Treppen und Dinge zu sehen sind.


Tipps: Wenn Sie in Lhasa sind, gehen Sie zum Potala Palast an ihrem letzten Tag in Lhasa. Erstens, es gibt viele Treppen steigen, also wenn Sie noch zum Eingewöhnen haben, werden Sie wahrscheinlich leiden im Aufstieg. Zweitens, wenn Sie die Hauptattraktion erst einmal sehen, die anderen Kloster/Palace werden können dem Vergleich nicht standhalten. Drittens kommen Sie wieder in den Abend nach Sonnenuntergang zu nehmen Sie den nächtlichen Blick auf dieses Hotel.

Ticket ist eine Postkarte, die man nach Hause schicken. angebracht ist ein 80Cent Briefmarke, nur ganz oben auf der Rest zurück nach Hause zu schicken.

Potala Palast wurde im 7. Jahrhundert erbaut und war der heutige Größe im 17. Jahrhundert erweitert. Es liegt ca. 114m m hoch, mit 13 Etagen des Wohnbereichs, Tempel, Beerdigung stupas und monk Schlafräume. Wie von Anfang 2014, es gibt ca. 70 seltsame monk dort lebenden, er es mehr als eine Touristenattraktion als einen funktionellen Palace/Kloster. Mein Reiseführer ist sehr nett. Wir haben eine schöne Zeit verbracht. Das ist der Grund, warum wir in Lhasa.

 EBC-Germany-0014

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!
