Day1  Nyingchi Arrival
Welcome to Nyingchi, the “Switzerland of Tibet”. You will be met by your tour guide at the hall of Milin Airport, then be escorted to your hotel in Bayi Town. In the 1 hour's driving journey, you will be welcomed by the brilliant peach blossoms along road. The rest of today is free for you to acclimatize the altitude and explore surroundings.

Accommodation:Accommodate at Bayi Town and have a good rest.

Day2  Nyingchi – Bomi ( B )

Today, you are going to drive to Bomi, about 230km away from Bayi Town. The wonderful sightseeing activities come on the road.

Firstly, you will drive about 1.5km out of town to visit the most famous and magical tree in Nyingchi – the King Cypress which is 50 meters tall but more than 2,500 years old. Leave the King Cypress, you will move to the highlight of today – Gala Village, a typical peach village where the opening ceremonies of several seasons of Nyingchi Peach Blossom Festival were held. In the valley of Gala Village, you can see the peach flowers burst into bloom. Combining with the green crops and mountains, these flowers will undoubtedly make you hooked.

On your way to Lulang Forest, take a short stop at Sekyim la Pass and enjoy a distance view of Mt. Namjia Bawa. Then, continue your trip to Lulang Forest, a 15km long and 1km wide narrow valley of wild forests and flowers, grasslands and streams. Lulang, in Tibetan, means “Dragon Valley” or “the place where you won’t be homesick”. On the both sides of the valley are lofty green mountains covered by prosperous spruce, pine trees and brush. At the foot of the mountain are the beautiful meadows and villages. Winding streams flow through among the wooden houses. Wild flowers of different colors dot on the meadows. Look into distance over the valley are enormous snow-capped mountains. All these sceneries make Lulang a dream land.

After the sightseeing on Lulang Forest, you will turn to Bomi and pay a happy visit to Peach Blossom Village, another popular site for the peach flowers. Blessed by the Yarlung Zangbo River, the peach flowers grown in this village are in bigger size and exceptionally brilliant. In additon to the stunning flowers, you won't miss the majestic snow peaks there. It seems that the flowery spring is huged by the snowy winter. 

Accommodation:Accommodate at Bomi.

Day3  Bomi - Midui Glacier – Ranwu Lake ( B )

Today, you will enjoy a fabulous feast of landscape. After breakfast, drive about 100km, you will arrive at the famous Midui Glacier. Ranked by China National Geography as one of the top six most beautiful glaciers in China, the Midui Glacier is featured in different shapes and forms of glaciers, including two about 800 meters high ice falls. At the foot of the glacier are green wild forests. Further down the forests are peaceful Tibetan villages, farmlands and ice lakes.

Leave Midui, and move to next also the final stop of today – Ranwu Lake. It is a barrier lake formed by landslides and debris flows of around 200 years ago. The lake is tranquil and clean. But the best feature is its reflections of surrounding diverse landscapes of grasslands, forests, blue sky and snow mountains like a mirror, which changes colors in different seasons.

Accommodation:Accommodate near the Ranwu.

Day4  Ranwu Lake – Nyingchi ( B )

Get up early to witness the amazing sunrise at Rawu Lake. Wispy mists float above the lake, while the morning sunlight shines on the snow mountains, which looks like a golden pyramid. Enjoy the fresh air and let your camera record the wonderful landscape.

Then you will move back to Nyingchi in the rest of today along the 318 National Road. It may take about 8~9 hours to get to Bayi Town, but you don’t have to worry being bored by the long distance. Because you will drive on the most beautiful parts of the 318 Road which starts from Rawu to Bayi. Feel free to ask for your driver for stop on the way for the scenery.

Accommodation:Accommodate at Bayi Town.

Day5  Nyingchi – Lhasa ( B )

Today, we will drive to the holy City Lhasa. The whole journey takes about 7 hours’ driving. On route, you will take a sidetrip to visit Basum-tso Lake. Basum-tso Lake, 3,500 meters above sea level, originates from Nyching Tangha Mountain and is a dozen kilometers long. Snow-covered mountains, glaciers and trees are reflected upon the lake’s rippling surface. There are small islands in the middle of the lake with Buddhist temples built upon them.

After the sightseeing in Basum-tso Lake, you will drive to Lhasa alongside the picturesque Niyang River, the longest tributary of the Yarlung Tsangpo River. There are some peach flowers for your sightseeing as well. When you pass through Gongbo Gyamada county (in upper reach of Niyang River), you can also enjoye the clustering peach blossoms along the National Highway 318.

Accommodation:Arrive in Lhasa and take a good rest in the hotel.

Day6  Lhasa ( B )

Start today’s Lhasa exploration with an exciting visit to the landmark - Potala Palace which is regarded as one of the most beautiful architectural building in the world. You will climb up the palace along the zigzag stone paths with white-and-red walls to the top of the palace where you can not only appreciate the exotic Tibetan-style architecture, but also get a great view of Lhasa’s urban areas, then walk into the inner space of Potala Palace to explore the stately chapels and learn about the history of the palace. Walk down stairs of the backside of Potala Palace and you will see the peach flowers as well in the park.

Continuing your exploration, you will then get to Jokhang Temple which is considered as the spiritual heart of Tibetan Buddhism. Each day, there are thousands of pilgrims coming from different places in Tibet to the temple to worship to the Buddha. This temple is also known as the “house of Buddha” because it keeps the precious Jowo Rinpoche, the life-sized (5 foot/1.5m) image of the Shakyamuni at the age of 12. The last site for today’s exploration is the famous Barkhor Street. It is a circular and wide street encircling the Jokhang Temple. The local people like to walk on the street for several circles usually in the late afternoon as a daily tradition of pilgrimage. The street also has many shops selling a wide variety of traditional Tibetan goods, religious items and handcrafts. 

Tips of Today: 1) there are 1,080 steps up to climb to the top of Potala Palace, so don’t walk in a rush, which may cause high altitude sickness; 2) taking photos is not allowed inside the palace; 3) today you will be mainly outside, please bring some water, a hat, sun cream, and sun glasses with you.

Day7  Lhasa ( B )

After breakfast, you will firstly go to visit the beautiful Norbulingka which used to be the former summer palace of Dalai Lamas in the ancient time, and now is a public park. It is famous for its Potrang, the private palaces of former Dalai lamas with grandiose Tibetan architecture style. Next, drive several kilometers to the western outskirts of Lhasa to visit Drepung Monastery. Drepung, in Tibetan, means “prosperity”. Since its establishment, Drepung Monastery has always been one of the most important Buddhist monasteries in Tibet. In its heyday, there were more than 10,000 monks lived and studied in the monastery. Throughout its history, many important and famous Tibetan leaders used to study here, especially the Dalai Lamas. So Drepung Monastery is also respectfully known as the “Mother School of Dalai Lamas”.

In the afternoon, you will be taken to another famous monastery in Lhasa - Sera Monastery. It is famous for the spectacular “Buddhism Debating”. As a daily routine, the monks gather in a courtyard, and debate on the Buddhist doctrines with supplemented gestures, which is thought to be helpful to facilitates better comprehension of the Buddhist philosophy to attain higher levels of study. After enjoying the "Buddhism Debating", you will be transferred back to the city. The rest time is your own free time to rest.

My best friend and I were looking forward to taking the train ride from Xining to Lhasa. Unfortunately, until the day we landed in Chengdu, our tour operator (different from Asia Odyssey) was unable to purchase the tickets for us. I contacted Danny after Googling and he was extremely helpful. Within 3 hours of contact, he had our train tickets. They were delivered to our hotel the next day before we left for Xining, and until we boarded the train, he was in contact with us to ensure that everything went smoothly. Thanks to Danny, we got to experience this once in a lifetime journey! Highly recommended for excellent and fast response! Thanks, Danny!

With the accompaniment of our experienced driver and guide-Lomsang. I forgot the name of our driver. Terribly sorry. He did a great job. Our guide is fluent in English, we had no problem in communicating. He made us laugh during the long drive and took care of my daughter. We had altitude sickness when we were at the tent of Everest Base Camp, he didn’t sleep well also in order to look after us. He also explained tibetan culture clearly which I find it pretty interesting. We would like to thank him for making our trip in tibet extraordinary. We were lucky to book a tour with Tibet odyssey tours.

Highly recommend the tour. We visited Tibet and had Lomsang as our guide. This was one of the most special trips I had taken in my life. Our guide told us the culture of the Tibetan people, we met with breathtaking sceneries. Our guide was adept with great driving skills. We felt safe sitting in the vehicle. Lomsang was one of the best guide we have ever had. he was extremely organized, patient, and attentive to the group. I was so impressed with his capabilities. Overall, excellent service and excellent experience.

Initially our tour consultant AMY did a fantastic job of coordinating our tour. This included arranging our small group to meet up in Lhasa despite us arriving there on different days. The accommodation was great and AMY followed up during the tour to ensure everything was going smoothly. Great Job AMY !!

On the tour itself we were accompanied by JESSICA for whom I cannot speak highly enough. Her explanations in all the various locations proved she was very knowledgeable. Her English was clear and she was always willing and able to answer any queries. Best of all, there was not a single day when she did not greet us with a happy and friendly smile. Participated in countless photos with us. The tour was unforgettable thanks to AMY, JESSICA and Asia Odyssey Travel.

We are thankful so much again to our agency Asia Odyssey Travel and my dear Amy for the wonderful arrangement and make my trip to Mt Kailash trip possible, really apperiated! We did Kora around Mt.Kailash for 3 days in August as I had been looking forward this trip for quite a long time, even the second day of Kora are hardest to all of us because part of the roads are covered by snowing with long-distance walking and quite high altitude too, so we spent a lot of physical strength on this but it’s totally worth because the views along the way are very incredible, I think we may not have much chance or time to go there again.

Anyway, I really miss Tibet also my dear, hope we will come and see you one day again, many thanks again for all of your help!!!
