The one-hour long Trans-Himalayan flight between Kathmandu and Lhasa of Tibet is one of the most scenic flights in the world that offers the breathtaking close-up views of the highest Mount Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), Cho Oyu (8,201m/26,907ft), Makalu (8,463m/27,767ft), Shishapangma (8,012m/26,287ft) and other great mountains. Lhasa is the capital city of the Tibet Autonomous Region of People’s Republic of China situated at an altitude of 3600 meters (11,811ft). In Lhasa, there are plenty of scenic spots and historical attractions such as the Potala Palace of the Dalai Lama with thirteen storey and 1000 rooms, Norbulingka, the summer palace of the Dalai Lama, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery and Jokhang Temple-the holiest shrine of Tibet. King Songtsen Gampo was the first Tibetan ruler to establish a palace on this outcrop. The total height of the Potala is 117 meters. Sera means 'hailstone' in the Tibetan language. Sera Monastery together with Ganden Monastery and Drepung Monastery in Lhasa are known as the 'three Great Monasteries of Tibet'. The Drepung Monastery is one of the three great Gelukpa Monasteries. Jokhang Temple formerly called the Trulnang Temple or temple of ‘magical appearance’ – erected by King Songtsen Gampo in the 7th century. The other highlight of this trip is the Nam Tso Lake (4,718m/15,479ft) which is located at 265km away from Lhasa and very much popular for its spectacular tidal views which are 70km long and 30km wide, the second largest salt water lake in the Tibetan Plateau.

Season for Tibet Travel:
Tibet travel is ideally good for the period of March through October. The best times considered to visit are spring, early summer and late autumn. Because of Tibet's high altitude, it is wiser to get prepared before starting the journey. Due to the large temperature differences during the day, warm clothes should be taken to keep away the cold. Since the land also receives a great deal of sunshine; sunglasses, sunscreen and a sun hat are indispensable items that are required while travelling in Tibet.
