The one-hour long Trans-Himalayan flight from Kathmandu to Gonggar Airport in Lhasa is one of the most spectacular flights in the world that offers the breathtaking view of the tallest Mount Everest (8,848m/29,028ft) and other great mountains. Lhasa (3,600m/11,811ft) is the capital city of Tibet. 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 Palace, Samye, Drepung and Sera Monastery and the holiest Jokhang Temple. Samye Monastery was the first Buddhist Monastery built in Tibet, probably founded during the 770s. Phalkor Monastery is located in Gyantse. The famous Kumbum pagoda, built in collaboration with Newari artists from Nepal and Tibet, also stands in the same courtyard where Phalkhor Monastery is with nine storeys, 108 doors and 77 chapels. Sera together with Ganden and Drepung Monastery in Lhasa are known as the 'three Great Monasteries of Tibet'. Jokhang Temple formerly called the Trulnang or temple of ‘magical appearance’ built in the 7th century. The overland tour that covers most of the best parts of Tibet such as Tsedang, the historic town of Gyantse, the Yamdrok Tso Lake, the famous Tashilhunpo Monastery at Shigatse (Xigatse) and the scenic drive to Lhasa along the valley formed by the Bhramaputra River (Yarlung Tsangpo) are the major highlights of Tibet Shangri-La Tour.

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.
