Amazing Tibet tours
I have always loved to travel, but I must honestly admit I had never seen the world, I had never gone beyond the doorstep until I left the comfortable confines of Europe and traveled to enjoy amazing Tibet tours with my friends.
Tibet is a magical, mystical place, where reality and dream, history and timelessness entwine. Through a friend I ended up travelling with, I found out about a company that organized tours and, as I wished to see as much as possible and enjoy everything to the full, I chose the Join in Group Lhasa-Everest Base Camp 8 Days.
8 days was indeed ample time to visit all there was to see in that part of the amazing Tibet and breathe in the life of the place while interacting with the fascinating people. The amazing thing was how organized everything was, making our stay comfortable and our experience enjoyable and unforgettable.
We arrived by plane and were picked up from the airport – and learned the first words: Tashi Delek. The driver, who was also our trained guide, took us to the hotel and we caught the first glimpses of the wonderful Tibet and the city of Lhasa, while getting used to the high altitude, which helped us sleep like babies.
Amazingly reinvigorated, we woke up the next morning and embarked on a fascinating sightseeing tour of Lhasa, seeing the palace of Potala, which I cannot recommend enough, the Jokhang holy Temple, and then we went shopping on Barkhor street, a huge marketplace and a heaven for tourists in search of souvenirs and pretty much anything else, from Buddhist figurines to books, musical instruments and clothes – both modern and traditional.
The third day was also spent in Lhasa – this is not a city to be seen in one day! We filled our minds and hearts with the peace of the Buddhist monasteries of Sera and Drepung, and the fourth day we visited the lakes on the Nyangchu Valley.
On the fifth day, we drove to Tingri and Rongpuk. I caught a glimpse of Mount Everest and knew right then and there that my life would never be the same again. I thought nothing would impress me anymore after this, but the following day, the last day of sightseeing in Lhasa, we visited the largest monastery Tashilunpo, founded in the 15th century by the first dalai lama.
So when time came to leave, on the eighth and final day of our tour, I felt so happy and blessed to have chosen to join in group tours in Tibet. I warmly recommend them to you too, all tours, including Join in Group Lhasa Everes Baste Camp Kathmandu 7, Join in Group Lhasa City Tour 4 Days and Join in Group Lhasa City-Plus-Namtso Lake Tour 5 Days. Tibet promises much and offers so much more still!
