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: Overnight at Lhasa 3-Star hotel

DAY 2   Lhasa city Sightseeing (Potala Palace RMB200, Jokhang Temple RMB85, 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.

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.

 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) .

 EBC-Germany-0019

 Wir sind eine Gruppe von vier erfahrene Reisende und äußerst zufrieden mit www.Reisenachtibet.com und das Paket sie boten von Lhasa zu EBC und zurückkehren.

Unser Führer für dieses unglaubliche Abenteuer war Lobsang und er war sehr informativ und hilfsbereit, wenn wir hatten extra Anfragen.
Das Paket war ausgewogen mit der direkt eingeben von Freizeit in Lhasa und so, dass wir die Erkundung der Stadt auf eigene Faust und mit geführte Ausflüge zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten.
Sehr professionelle Organisation.

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

Hi Amy, 

Yes we have arrived, landed yesterday in Cape Town and today went back to the "groove" at work.  I would like to thank you for your outstanding work and let you know how important your help and support has been to us in shaping the itinerary and terms of the trip of our lives.  It is really rare to find such a high level of customer service.  I would like to compliment you also on behalf of my boyfriend as we had an amazing time in Tibet. You have taken the time to assist us from the very beginning and went the extra mile in suggesting ideas for itinerary, providing tips on where to stay and what to do. You have also assisted us with all our crazy inquires,  worries and doubts about visa issuance and time frames on how to get it. The ability to handle that was also outstanding.  We were also very impressed with the excellent level of your English and had no problem at all during our communication, Thanks for everything you have done for us about our Tibet trip!!!   
 EBC-British-0011
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!
