Join YPT on the roof of the world for our autumn essentials tour to Tibet. In this tour, we combine the main sights in Lhasa with a trip to Namtso Lake, passing through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, and also in Namba villages where we can see more about what life is like outside Lhasa.
We’ll spend a couple of days in Lhasa looking around the Potala Palace and other lesser-known monasteries, as well as the Tibet Museum, where we learn the Chinese interpretation of Tibetan history and the role of British imperialism in the area. Then will spend a day out at the breath-taking Namtso Lake, the highest salt-water lake in the world. We will also spend a day looking around Tibetan valleys before taking the train out from Lhasa, the highest railway in the world!
This tour starts and finishes in Beijing/Shanghai (€1095) or Xi’an/Chengdu (€995), but we can arrange travel from anywhere in China depending on your plans, get in touch for a quote!
It can be done as a single tour, or you can join us on the extended tour to Everest Base Camp and our very first tour across the land border between Tibet and Nepal!
