We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Lhasa Tour
( Lhasa Tours & Extended Tibet Tours )
Lhasa is one of the most"want to visit" cities in the world. People want to visit Lhasa either because of its remoteness or its impressive heritage of over a thousand years of Tibetan culture and religion.

Sandwiched by the colossal mountain ranges to the north and south and located on the north banks of the Lhasa River, Lhasa is the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region of P.R.C. and also the center for Tibetan politics, economy, culture, and religion.

This is the right place to plan your Lhasa tour and Tibet tours as well.

General Impression of Lhasa City
The city of Lhasa is smaller than people thought to be. Its main road is called Beijing Road, which is devided into three section: East, Middle and West. 

The east section is occupied by Tibetan style shops and restaurants; the west section is lined with modern department stores and restaurants. The middle part is where the Potala Palace is located. 

All the taxis cost you about RMB 10 if you drive in the downtown area. Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Street are not far from the east section of Beijing Road. Norbulingka and Tibet Museum are close to the west section of Beijing Road. 

Drepung Monastery is to the tip of west section of Beijing Road 8km from the center of Lhasa. Sera Monastery is located 5km further north of east section of Beijing Road. 

Lhasa is 3600 meters above the sea level. Many people will feel a little bit uncomfortable, having a kind of headache. Lhasa makes people think of three words - sunshine, azure sky and blue water. The bald mountains are everywhere. Lhasa is sandwiched by the mountains by its north and south sides. The Lhasa River passes through the city from east to west.

How to get the travel permits?
To visit Tibet, as a foreigner, you need a Tibet Travel Permit (TTP). Lhasa PSB will not issue travel permits to individual travelers and will direct you to a travel agency in China. Agencies can arrange a travel permit to almost anywhere but only if you book a Land Cruiser, driver and a guide. You need to apply for the travel permit at least 15 days prior to your entry date. To secure a permit, you need to offer the following information:
1) full name
2) gender
3) date of birth
4) passport number
5) nationality 

Lhasa Airport, or Gonggar Airport is about 90 kms from the downtown Lhasa. On the way from the airport to the city center, you will cross two newly built bridges. The Lhasa River winds along the airport road.

Lhasa has daily Lhasa Flights to & from Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Xi'an, Xining, Kunming and more. It has also opened up a Lhasa and Kathmandu international regular charter flights.
Airport Shuttle Bus: RMB 35 per person
Airport Taxi: RMB 140 per car

Taking the train, is an amazing new option, offering the opportunity to see the unseen mountain scenery. With the operation of Tibet Railway from July 1st, 2006, more and more tourists have swarmed into Tibet by the Tibet train.

There are daily trains to & from Beijing, Xining, Lanzhou, Chengdu and Chongqing, and services either daily or every other day to Xian, Shanghai and Guangzhou. All trains from Lhasa depart in the morning and all trains to Lhasa arrive in the evening. A train service to Shigatse is due to begin.

Lhasa Station is located 4km southwest of Lhasa city. From the station to the city center, you may take public bus No.91 or take taxi.

Travel overland to Lhasa
Travelers can travel overland to Lhasa either from other parts of China or Nepal. In China you can travel from Xining, Chengdu. But the presence of the Tibet train has pushed the sleeper buses into irrelevancy. For affordable adventurous travelers, hiring a Land Cruiser is the best choice. For Nepal side, you are suggested to hire a Land Cruiser or looking out for the occasional advertisements posted for seats in non-stop minibuses or Land Cruisers to from Zhangmu to Lhasa. 

In the city of Lhasa, to get around, you have many choices - public buses, taxi and pedicabs. Taking taxi is the most welcomed tool of transportation.
