      Why we suggest this tour itinerary? 

      The mild and pleasant climate in central Tibet makes this area available for tourists year around. This route offers the epitome of Tibet with some of the most impressive visions: snow-capped mountains and holy lakes, splendid monasteries and palaces, major cultural center cities, original villages and unsophisticated people. With the better road conditions and nice accommodations, it is now the most popular route for Tibet Tour.  

      Lhasa, literally meaning “Holy-Land”, the heart and soul of Tibet, has history of more than 1,300 years. It rose to prominence as an important center of administrative power in the 7th century AD, when Songtsen Gampo, a local ruler in the Yarlung Valley, continued the task of unifying Tibet. Songtsen Gampo moved his capital to Lhasa and built a palace on the site that is now occupied by the Potala.  

       

      The fifth Dalai Lama also made Lhasa his capital. He built his palace, the Potala, on the site of ruins of Songtsen Gampo’s 7th century palace. Lhasa has remained Tibet’s capital since 1642, and most of the city’s historical sights date from this second stage of the city’s development.  

       

      Shigatse, the second largest city in Tibet, is another political, economic and religious center other than Lhasa. Shigatse has been the seat of the Panchen Lama - the second most important Lama in Tibet, who is traditionally based in Tashilhunpo Monastery.

      Some 2 km to the east of the Potala is the most revered religious structure in Tibet – Jokhang Temple - the most sacred temple in Tibet, which attracts pilgrims from all parts of Tibet to prostrate themselves in front of the temple. Bustling with worshippers and redolent with mystery, the Jokhang is an unrivalled experience.

      The quadrangle of streets surrounding the Jokhang is the Barkhor – Lhasa ’s  most interesting pilgrimage circuit. This area of the Old Town is both the spiritual heart of Lhasa and the main commercial district for Tibetans.

With the support of plutocrats, it developed as the richest monastery of Gelugpa and became the mother temple of Dalai Lamas. In 1546, the third Dalai was welcomed as the first Living Buddha into the monastery. At the invitation of Mongolias king, he went to Qinghai Province to preach. He was dignified with the title the third Dalai Lama the first and second Dalai were entitled, too. It is the very place that the second, third, and the fourth Dalai Lama held the Sitting-in-Bed Ceremony, as well as the residence of the fifth Dalai before his nomination by the government of the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911). Supported by the Army of the first Emperor of Qing Dynasty in Beijing, 5th Dala Lama became the king for both monks and common people in whole Tibet and moved to Potala Palace from Drepung Monastery.

      Tashilhunpo Monastery, founded in 1447 by Gendun Drup, the First Dalai Lama, is a historic and culturally important monastery in Shigatse, the second-largest city in Tibet. The monastery is the traditional seat of successive Panchen Lamas, the second highest ranking tulku lineage in the Gelukpa tradition (the most important sect in Buddhism in Tibet). The "Tashi" or Panchen Lama had temporal power over three small districts, though not over the town of Shigatse itself, which was administered by a dzongpon (prefect) appointed from Lhasa. Located on a hill in the center of the city, the full name in Tibetan of the monastery means: "all fortune and happiness gathered here" or "heap of glory".
