If you want to have a Tibet tour from one of the Chinese cities, you may start from Guilin. Having a tour in Guilin is the best way to discover the Chinese style of natural beauty. There is a famous saying that goes: "Guilin's mountains and waters rank first in China and Yangshuo's are the best in Guilin". If you ever view the Chinese landscape paintings, you will see the live ones in Yangshuo! Traveling to Guilin, you will be stunned by the special Karst scenery, the ancient terraces, and the traditional customs. You can have a Li River cruise, visit a Zhuang(the biggest ethnic group in China) family, and enjoy some local food. Tibet Autonomous Region is the roof of the world. A great number of travelers are attracted to Tibet because of the unique plateau views and mysterious Buddhism atmosphere. In Tibet, you will see yaks running on the grassland, eagles hanging in the sky, blue sky, crystal-alike lakes, snow-capped mountains, as well as the power of the faith.

Daily Itinerary


When you arrive in Guilin, you will meet with your tour guide. Then you will be driven to your hotel to take a break. In the afternoon, you will go to the first destination - Reed Flute Cave. After visiting the cave, you will arrive at Fubo Hill(Wave-Subduing Hill). Standing on the peak of the hill, you will be astonished by the beauty of the city. Finally, you will be driven back to your hotel.

Stay overnight in Guilin

Today you will have a cruise tour from Guilin to Yangshuo via Li River. The whole waterway is 83km. It takes nearly four hours to finish the whole cruise, during which you can see the green karst mountains mirroring the Li River, local farmers working in the fields, and traditional villages dotted at the base of the hills. When you arrive in Yangshuo, you will have lunch before starting another trip - bamboo rafting. Bamboo rafting on the Li River gives visitors a closer encounter with the Li River's landscape. Yangshuo is certainly a paradise of hills and rivers. You also can enjoy the special hills and clean rivers by hiking along the Li River. In the late afternoon, you will be driven back to Guilin.

Stay overnight in Guilin

In the morning, your tour guide will take you to the airport. You will have a stopover in Chengdu, then fly to Lhasa. You can enjoy the landscape from the window of the planes. As soon as you arrive in Lhasa, your tour guide will meet you at the airport. After being transferred to the hotel, you will be free to wander around the city on your own for the rest of the day but try not to overtax yourself. The first day's well-rest is crucial to acclimatize to the high altitude. Remember to drink lots of water, eat light, and not take a shower if you can help it.

Stay overnight in Lhasa

In the morning your guide will meet you at the hotel and take you to visit the famous Potala Palace, the cardinal landmark of Tibet and the masterpiece of Tibetan architecture. It was first built by the 33rd King Songtsen Gangpo in the 7th century and rebuilt later by the 5th Dalai Lama in the 17th century. Now it is a museum and world heritage site. 

In the afternoon, we will go to visit Jokhang Temple in the center of the old Lhasa city. Jokhang Temple is the most sacred temple in Tibet and it is always bustling with earnest local pilgrims since the early days. After that, you will take a walk around the Barkhor Street which is one of the most devotional circuits as well as a crowded central market of Lhasa. Barkhor Street is a very ancient round street surrounding the Jokhang Temple and the locals are always proud of it. As a symbol of Lhasa, it is also a must-see place for visitors.

Stay overnight in Lhasa

Today’s first attraction is Drepung Monastery. Drepung means "piles of rice" in Tibetan, which symbolizes prosperity. It's the world's largest monastery that housed more than 10,000 monks in the past. Also, It's the highest-ranking monastery in the Gelug Sect. After lunch, you will continue to visit the Sera Monastery, the most beautiful Tibetan monastery in Lhasa. The Buddhist scripture debating is the highlight of Sera Monastery.
