Lhasa Budget Tour 07 Nights/ 08Days

Lhasa Budget Tour

Fixed Departure to Lhasa/ Tibet Tour , Every Saturday and Tuesday Through out the year

The crown jewel of our Lhasa tour is the memorable cultural, religious, and historical tour of the ancient city of Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. Situated in the middle of the Tibetan Plateau and lying in the encompassed river valley in between the Himalayas, Lhasa sits at an altitude of about 3,660 meters (11,450 ft.) making it the highest city in the world and thus justifying its age old title of the “roof of the world.” The semi-arid climate of the region due to its position in the rain shadow of the Himalayas and yet the fertile river valley of Lhasa forms a contrasting natural beauty in lush green farms between the arid rocky landscape and snow capped mountains.

Budget trip is open on every Tuesday and Saturday throughout the year. December and January is considered low season, Saturday the best time for the trip. We drive to Lhasa by bus and from Lhasa we have two options: come back to Kathmandu on flight, or we you have to proceed to Main Land China after the trip. So, you have the option of taking train or flights onwards to main Land china after the 7/8 days Lhasa overland trip.
