Day 3: Xegar to Xigatse (altitude - 3900m/ 12,792ft):

This area is famous for the Tashilhunpo and Sakya monasteries. Tashilhunpo monastery: The Tashilhunpo Monastery does justice to the term monastic city. It was founded in 1447 by Tsong Khapa's nephew and disciple, Gendundrub, who was the first Dalai Lama. Under the fourth Panchen Lama, it was substantially enlarged and became an important cultural and religious site. The main chapel contains a huge, 26 meter-high statute of the future Buddha. The monastery is grandly decorated with arts, ancient scriptures and scroll paintings. Sakya monastery: The Sakya monastery originally consisted of two large complexes on either side of the Trum River. Both the north monastery, founded in the 11th century and Sakya south, founded in 1268 by Phagpa, have uniquely significant status with
Tibetan pilgrims. The monastery offers you libraries of spiritual books as well as artwork and a chance to see the grand residence of the monks.

Day 4: Xigatse to Gyantse (altitude - 3950m/ 12,956ft):

Gyantse, lying 264 km southwest of Lhasa on the northern bank of the Nyang Chu River, is of historical significance. In the 15th century it served as the capital of a small kingdom. Today, Gyantse retains
a deeply Tibetan character. The principle structures consist of a castle on a ridge overlooking the town and a walled monastic complex. The monastery includes the massive temple of Palkhor Chode and the great multi-chapel Kumbum Chorten. These religious monuments, part of Gyantse's ancient monastic town, contain some of the most extraordinary works of art in Tibet. Overnight in a guest house or hotel.

Day 5: Gyantse to Lhasa (altitude - 3650m/ 11,972ft):
