Day by Day Itinerary
Day 01 Arrival in Lhasa
No meals
Four Points By Sheraton Hotel  

Our guide will meet you outside the baggage claim area at Lhasa Airport, where the altitude is 3,650 meters above sea level. Check in at the hotel.

Tips: Rising to the high altitude suddenly, you may get high altitude sickness at the outset. Don't worry. Take a good rest and will relieve it gradually. Due to the high altitude sickness, you may have no appetite. We suggest you prepare some fruits in advance or buy some after your arrival. As the air on the highland is thin, you'd better not walk too fast or do any strong exercise. If you still feel uncomfortable, you may ask the hotel for an oxygen bottle and pay on spot. The rate is RMB35 per jar and RMB120 per cylinder. Under this circumstance, you'd better not take shower this evening and keep the window open while sleeping at night.

Day 02 Lhasa
Western buffet breakfast, Lunch
Four Points By Sheraton Hotel  

Visit the Drepung Monastery and the Carpet Factory. After lunch, go head to visit the Sera Monastery and the Norbulingka Park.

Tips: Most people come to Tibet in pursuit of its religion, monasteries and Tibetan living culture. There are indeed some taboos that should be refrained from when visiting the monasteries. Take Potala Palace for instance, it is not acceptable for women to wear hats in the palace. While entering the monastery, visitors shouldn't step on the doorsill of it. Smoking, speaking loudly and touching the figure of Buddha in the temple, etc are not allowed. Your tour guide will tell you more about these.

Day 03 Lhasa
Western buffet breakfast, Lunch
Four Points By Sheraton Hotel  

Visit the Potala Palace and the Tibet Museum. After lunch, go ahead to visit the Jokhang Temple, the thriving bazaar of the Barkhor Street and the Tibetan Traditional Hospital.

Tips: When you visit the tourist sites in Lhasa, you should obey the rule of walking clockwise. Of course, the guide will lead you well. Taking photos is definitely forbidden in the Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple. In other monasteries, you need to pay the extra fee if you want to takes photos. The fee is charged per camera and the price for a video camera is much higher. There are lots of stands and shops along the Barkhor Street. The unique Tibetan atmosphere is permeated here. The Tibetan rugs, incense, clothing, Buddhist statues and many kinds of beautiful Tibetan decorations are easily to be found. You may pick something as souvenirs for your friends and families.

Day 04 Departure from Lhasa
Western buffet breakfast
 

Visit the Tibet family if time permits. See off.

Tips: When you visit a Tibetan family, please do not step on the threshold, which is regarded impolite. Tibetan people believe that sticking out one's tongue means respect rather than ridicule and it is etiquette to put one's palms together when meeting. So do not be upset when someone makes the gesture in front of you. You may have heard of celestial burial. Just on the hill back of Sera Monastery is where the local Tibetans hold celestial burial. Tibetans are averse to visitors for that. You are advised not to approach it even if you are just very curious and bear no malice.
