Update: Feb. 25th, 2014


As you may know, foreign tourists have to travel to Tibet with the organization of Tibet Travel Agency, but most of tourists like to enjoy Lhasa sightseeing by themselves. Hence, we kindly suggest you to have a special 1-day Lhasa tour with your local Tibetan guide. You can walk all day without car driving so that you have much leisure time for relaxing in Lhasa.
