Lhasa Vacation Packages
Lhasa, in Tibet, is a place that around 120,000 people call home.
From here it's 560 miles (901 kilometers) to the southeast to Nanjing and 380 miles (612 kilometers) to the west to Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.
Some of the most popular historical attractions in and around Lhasa are the religious buildings that have faithfully stood here for many years. The Jokhang Temple and the Ramoche Temple are two of Lhasa’s best examples of these. Appreciate the solemn atmosphere of these remarkable places.
No vacation in the city would feel complete without a visit to Potala Palace. This is one of the more interesting attractions around. While you are exploring, don't forget that this place is not just outstandingly beautiful, it also reflects an important time in local history.
In this culture-rich city, be sure to investigate the engaging cultural centers and museums, including the Tibet Museum, where inquiring minds can browse local collections. Explore the collections at your own pace, browse the various exhibits, then ask for tips from the locals to uncover some of the smaller museums in the vicinity.
After you’ve explored all the main spots on the Lhasa tourist map, consider stopping by a few of these lesser known, but equally rewarding sights. If you’ve got a couple of hours to spare, be sure to check out the Drepung Monastery, the Sera Monastery, the Norbulingka and the Ganden Monastery.
