Ride from Lhasa city to Ganden Monastery, which is about 4hrs. About 40km east to Lhasa, Ganden is one out-of-Lhasa sight to choose if your time is limited. Two kora are spread through the splendid 4500m-high kyi-chu valley (which is all visual eye candy) and you're likely to meet more pilgrims here than anywhere else.

This is the first day that you enter Tibet. Your guide will greet you at the airport or railway station and transfer you to the lovely hotel. It usually takes around 1.5 hours to drive from Lhasa Airport to downtown Lhasa and takes about 20mins from Lhasa Railway Station. Tourists could have a look at Yarlung Tsangpo River, the largest and longest river in Tibet on their way to the hotel. After check-in, you can have a good rest first. And if you feel like to go out, you can wander around the city. But just remember that don't take too much stuff, try to go with a light pack. Meanwhile, drink some more water. It’s really useful to get acclimatized to the high altitude.
