Best Sightseeing Tours in Tibet

Tibet is situated on the lofty Tibetan Plateau towards the northern side of the Himalayas. Tibet is fondly called the “roof of the world” for housing gigantic peaks like Mount Everest. Lhasa is the capital of Tibet that boasts of the man made architectural wonder called the Potala Palace. The palace which earlier used to serve as the seat of the Tibetan Government and the winter home of Dalai Lama, is frequented by all tourists visiting Tibet. The 13 storey high palace houses 1000 rooms, numerous stupas, chapels and prayer halls. Tourism in Tibet is controlled by the Chinese Government so parts of the country stay inaccessible to foreign tourists, but there are several sightseeing tours in Tibet to make your trip a fulfilling one.

 

Among major tourist attractions is the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa which was built by Songtsen Gampo and is one of the holiest sites in Tibet. The Barkhor Street in Lhasa is also frequented by a number of tourists, which is basically a street filled with traditional Tibetan stalls. Tourists visiting Dranang usually head to visit the Samye Monastery which is the first Buddhist Monastery established in Tibet. Tibet is dotted with scenic, rusty regions, most of the terrain is untouched and less explored. Namtso Lake, the highest salt water lake in the world situated with the backdrop of the Thangula range, is a major tourist hotspot in Lhasa.
