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.

Lhasa is not a destination, it is an experience. Perched high in the Tibetan Plateau. It is one of the highest cities in the world. Its altitude is not what makes this city memorable though, it is the people and the daily life that will capture your heart and mind.

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.
