You will be ushered to the bus station by our staff for the bus to Pokhara. The ride will be pleasant and go through one of Nepal’s major highways. For much of the ride’s duration, you will see gorgeous hills and the gushing Trishuliriver. Once you reach Pokhara, you will be awestruck by the city’s natural beauty.

These include Phewa Lake and Barahi Temple, Seti River gorges, Devi’s Fall, Gupteshwar Cave, Tibetan Refugee Camps and many other museums. The Peace Pagoda is also quite a spectacular hike with amazing view of Pokhara valley below and the Annapurnas in the distance.

Day 07- Drive to Sarankot for sunrise and mountain views, then continue onto the Chitwan National Park
Very early this morning, we have a 45-minute drive to the hilltop called Sarankot which hosts arguably the best views of a sunrise in the country. It is a quite a breathtaking moment as the sun appears over the Annapurna giants like Dhaulagiri, Fishtail with Phewa Lake glistening below. After watching the sunrise, we head back to the hotel in Pokhara. From here we drive to Chitwan National Park. At the resort, the staff at the resort will brief you about participating in the various activities of the resort, including elephant safari, jungle walk and nature walk.

Day 08 - Activities in the Chitwan National Park
With a wakeup call along with tea and coffee, we have the great time to witness the wildlife at its best. This includes elephant safari, jungle walk, bird watching and so forth.

The flight goes over the Himalayas which give you some stunning views of the mountains and rugged terrains below. We land in GongarAiport where you’re met by our Tibetan guide. We then drive to Lhasa on a two-hour drive on a private vehicle. We spend the day in Lhasa resting, exploring and acclimatizing.

Day 11 - Guided city tours in Lhasa
On this day, we spend our time exploring gorgeous monasteries in Lhasa. A guide and interpreter will be available with you for your disposal and showing you around. One of the best known and preserved monasteries called Sera Monastery will give you a feeling of rustic Tibetan lifestyle. With white walls and golden color roofs, the beautiful monastery is home to hundreds of monks. We then visit Norbulinka as well as Jokhang Temple, considered one of the most sacred shrines in Tibet. We may be able to see an elaborate procession of devout Tibetan in the monastery. We visit the markets in Lhasa which has a maze-like narrow alleys running through.

Day 12 - Guided City tour at the Potala Palace and the Drepung Monastery
In the morning, we head to Potala Palace which is undoubtedly the most popular attraction in Tibet. This ancient monastery houses the private residence of the Dalai Lama along with hundreds, if not thousands, of Tibetan monks. The quarter of the Potala Palace itself is jawdroppingly beautiful. Though the original palace was built in the 5th century, the one that stands today was constructed more than 400 years ago. After exploring this grand monument, we visit Drepung Monastery, another astonishing monastery founded in the 14th century, once the largest in the world with more than 10,000 accommodated. Nonetheless, today it has still several hundred monks. Unlike other ones, this monastery was untouched during the revolution. After sightseeing, we head back to our hotel and spend the evening exploring local places.
