Day 03 :-Lhasa-Local Tour-Tibetan New Year-Losar

Early morning get ready to enjoy Losar Festival-Tibetan New Year Day (Losar).

The Tibetan Calendar comes from 1027A.D. The first day of the first month of the Tibetan calendar became New Year’s Day. This is the grand festival in Tibet. According to the custom of Tibetans, almost all people will gather to Jorkhang Temple to pray for a happy and prosperous start of year.

At afternoon, visit Drepung Monastery. Drepung once housed 10,000 monks, if we’re lucky, we’ll quietly ease into a dark columned hall to see and hear the lilting, booming chanting of the sutras, or perhaps sit under a willow tree and watch as the monks engage in theatrical debate.

Day 04 :- Lhasa-Local sightseeing of Drak Yerpa Cave

Visit Lhasa to Drak Yerpa Cave and back to Lhasa. Drak Yerpa cave is built on a hillside with more than 80 meditation caves. Drak Yerpa is described as the “life tree” or spiritual axis of Lhasa.

The site had a powerful spiritual heritage, having been visited by Songsten Gampo, Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsoygel, Padampa Sanggye, and Asisha. It was the home of several hundred hermits, monks, and nuns.

For those with a particular interest in Tibetan Buddhism , Drak Yerpa hermitage is one of the holiest cave retreats in Ü region. Many ascetics have sojourned here and contributed to the area’s great sanctity. The site is deeply peaceful and has stunning views.

Day 05 :-Lhasa-Samding-Local Tour to Yamdrok Lake, Lhamo La-tso Lake, Mansarovar Lake

Visit Lhasa to Samding and return to Lhasa. Like mountains, lakes are considered sacrosanct by the Tibetan people. Yamdrok Lake is one of four such holy lakes, the others being Lhamo La-Tso, Namtso and Manasarovar Lake.

It is revered as a talisman and is said to be part of the life-spirit of the Tibetan nation. The lake has nine islands, of which one houses the famous Samding Monastery. This monastery is interesting, as it is the only Tibetan monastery to be headed by a female re-incarnation. Since, it is not a nunnery, its female abbot heads a community of about thirty monks. Return to hotel. Dinner and night stay at hotel.

Day 06 :-Lhasa- Departure- Airport

After breakfast, depart to Lhasa Airport for further journey with pleasant memories of Tibetan Culture and Losar Festival.
