Welcome to Tibet
Journey to the mystical home of Tibetan Buddhism and see Potala Palace (residence of the Dalai Lama), Jokhang Temple and visit monasteries. Watch the animated debates between monks at the Drepung Monastery. Have tea with locals and enjoy the atmosphere of hospitality.

Stroll around Barkhor Street and observe the Tibetans performing their devotions. Walk the market alleys and see the friendly smiles. The warmth of the people more than makes up for the frigid temperatures of the winter.
