You visit Potala and Norbulinka Palace, Drepung & Sera Monastery, Jokhang Temple & the Barkhor Bazaar. One of the highlights is the visit to the symbol of Tibet; the Potala Palace set high on Red Hill, the winter home of the Dalai Lama until 1959. The most sacred temple in Lhasa is the Lokhang, where people come from all over Tibet to visit and pray in this spiritual heart of the country. It was used as a military kitchen during the Cultural Revolution but has now been beautifully restored, with many priceless thangkas and statues adorning the chapels, and magnificent gilded roofs.

Another great treasure is the Norbulingka – the old summer palace of the Dalai Lama, which his is alleged to have preferred to the Potala as the rat population was less!

Now you visit Jorkhang Temple, the center of the Tibetan Buddhism and the sacred land of Buddhist followers where innumerable pilgrims come for worship everyday. The temple, built in 647, is the earliest wood-and-masonry structure still existing in Tibet. Surrounding the Jorkhang Temple is the bustling Barkhor Street which is the religious and social focus of Lhasa. Around the Barkhor there are numerous stalls selling all sorts of handicrafts: brightly coloured boots and fur-lined hats, silver and turquoise jewellery, rosaries, prayer flags and charms, as well as beautiful Tibetan carpets and all manner of ordinary household ware.

Next you visit Sera monastery, which was created in 1419, has always been an important Buddhist seminary. As rose are planted everywhere in the monastery, it is also called “the court of wild rose”.

They took care of all our needs not only were they highly efficient, but also very lively and entertaining. Ram Chandra Ghising who was a wonderful organizer and Norbu Tamang our cook whose cooking was excellent and extremely inventive. The team as a whole took excellent care of us.

Thanks for a great and a memorable trip.

Camping Trek - 04 Days


This is our first trek in Nepal. We only have one week here so we booked just a small trek (4days). We were met by Santosh, the cook + 4 porters which were organised by NEPAL ENVIRONMENTAL. Over the 4 day period Santosh and his team did everything possible to make our trek as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We have made good friends over the last 4 days and hope to return to Nepal in the near future where our first part of call will be NEPAL ENVIRONMENTAL.
