What you can expect
Our local Tibetan English tour guide and driver will pick you up from Lhasa Ganggyan Hotel parking lot on Beijing East Road in the historic center at 9:30am. If you have a special request for meetup location we can happily accommodate that as well. We will then drive 55km to arrive at Sambhu village.
We will first visit Sambhu Monastery. It is originally a Kadam monastery and has since evolved into a Sakya and Gelugpa Monastery when the two sects dominate Tibetan Buddhism. After lunch, we will do a little hiking around the monastery and start exploring the village. You can have a relaxing time on the grassland while watching local people conducting their daily routines. A clear creek runs through the town, and you will feel instantly at home with nature.
After a leisurely time in Sambhu, we will head back to Lhasa and see you off in the historic center. We wish you the best on your further journey. If you had a great time with us, we welcome you to check out more Tibetan day tours that we offer.
