All our tours visit the main tourist destinations in central Tibet- Lao Tingri, Lhatse, Shigatse, Gyantse, Lake Yamdruk Tso, and eventually reach Lhasa. Before ending the tour in Lhasa, we organize a two-day guided sightseeing tour around Lhasa.

Due to the strict traveling rules imposed by the Chinese government, travelers are not allowed to make any independent activity / tour inside Tibet. So, once you complete the package tour, you are not allowed to remain in Lhasa or in Tibet independently.
