Day 2 Lhasa
Potala PalaceThe overwhelming Potala Palace is your first stop. As the symbol of Tibet, it was built in 641 AD and was the winter palace of Dalai Lama who is Tibet’s pope. Impressive Tibetan architecture, huge golden Buddha statues, red-robed lamas and devoted pilgrims all make it a must-visit.

After arrival in Gyantse, you will tour Palcho Monastery to admire fancy frescoes, statues and sculptures.

Day 7 Lhatse – Rongbuk Monastery - Mt. Everest Base
Mt. EverestAlthough it's just 100km from Shegar to Everest Base Camp (5200m), it takes about 4 hours since the cracked winding roads demand much caution.

When you finally get to Base Camp, the first sight of the mighty Everest simply leaves you speechless. All the hardship you bear along the way makes sense at this while. The best moments to watch Mt.
