The Heart of Tibetan civilization Tour 8 Days
This Tour covers Tsedang and Samye, the ancient capital of Tibetan Kings, from where the Tibetan civilization once flourished. We will visit the first building built in Tibet (Yongbulagong) and the ancient Tombs of former Tibetan Kings. En route to Lhasa we will stop at the famous Monastery (Mindoling) of Samye. After a two days sightseeing tour within Lhasa, we make a day trip to Ganden (Ganden Monastery) at 40 km east from Lhasa. Ganden surely is one of the most spectacular sites of Tibet. Built in 1490, it once was the residence of over 4000 monks. This tour departs on Tuesdays and Saturdays from Kathmandu. The tour can be commenced from mainland China (Chengdu and Beijing) too.
