Trip Overview
Lhasa literally means” the Place of Deities” in the Tibetan language, the name itself today still equals to holiness, power and exoticism to most of travelers. And this 4 days Lhasa Holy Landmarks City Tour is made exactly to show you the best flavor of this exotic holy power into the Himalayas. Nothing to visit but rest and acclimatize best on your arrival day; on the second day, you will visit the soaring and solemn Potala Palace that still looks very awe-inspiring even with the absence of its host. The Johkang Temple with never-ended prostrating pilgrims and the bustling Barkhor Street with its surrounding beautiful whitewashed traditional dwellings makes this old Tibetan quarter the best walk in Lhasa; on the third day, we will have a chance to go into the yards, chapels and halls of the most important monasteries in Lhasa, to have a up-close experience to those “universities” in ancient times. At Drepung Monastery, to feel the vicissitudes of this historic monastery used to have more than 10 thousands monks living and studying here, yet today much less. At Sera Monastery, you can enjoy watching the script debating and learn their Buddhism philosophy from your guide.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Ms. Pa***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry.  At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.

There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
