Housing 10,000 monks, Drepung monastery lies hidden in rocky ridges just beyond the city. Surprisingly much of the building was left untouched throughout so many hundreds of years.

In the afternoon, the site we will visit is Sera Monastery, a fifteenth century sprawl of golden roofs and whitewashed walls. This well preserved monastery is located just a few miles North of Lhasa and is home to several hundred monks. Its famous debating activities are happening 3-4pm quite regularly every working day; we will not give it a miss. Overnight at hotel.

Day 04: Lhasa Yangpachen Geothermal-Damxung County-Lake Nam-Tso-Lhasa .
To experience the natural views of Tibet is a dream of many tourists. This one day roundtrip tour will offer you great opportunity to see the real Tibet. You will see the great mountains, huge grasslands, local nomads, sheep, yaks, goats, horses, most importantly, you will feel the pure huge Lake-Nam-Tso, which is 4718m high. It is the second-largest saltwater lake in China, the first being Koko Nor (Qinghai-Lake) in Qinghai province. More and more people want to visit this holy lake. In clear weather the water is a miraculous shade of turquoise and there are magnificent views of the nearby mountains. The wide open spaces, dotted with the tents of local drokpas (Nomads) are intoxicating. On the way back to Lhasa, we can stop in Yangpachen Hot spring where we can enjoy the Hot spring service on our own if we want. Overnight at hotel.

We will pass the two high passes of Khamba La and Kharo La which are over 5000m, and we will bypass the beautiful and snake-like Lake-Yamdrok Tso. We can stop to ride a yak on the back of which we can get pictures of the lake and mountain peaks from a far. Once we get to Gyantse, We will have a quick lunch and rest little bit, then we will drive to see the Gyangtse Dzong and Pelkhor Choede Monastery & Kumbum Pagoda. The Kumbum is much more than a Stupa, as it is surrounded by numerous Tibet murals and small chapel houses. Even if you are not professional art connoisseur you will still be shocked by these ancient murals and architecture. After the visit in Gyantse we will continue another easy drive about one and half hours to Shigatse city which locates 90 km from northwest Gyangtse.
