This tour is designed just for the glimpse of the most interesting and great view that can be done in the shortest period, i.e. Lhasa with its Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple. During the one hour flight from Kathmandu to Lhasa in Tibet, you will enjoy the stunning views of Himalayan range. Just getting in touch with Tibetan culture and tradition is another blend where one can indulge into the great view of the Potala Palace without any fail.
The very short but the sweet memory of Tibet will keep you smiling and sometimes a really adventure at the height of Lhasa (3650 m / 11975 ft). However, the bravery feeling will keep you relaxed and the traditional food, if you taste, will make you different but wonderful experience.
