Fly in for a Lhasa Highlights Tour

Potala Palace home of Dalai Lama, Lhasa
Lhasa: Potala Palace home of Dalai Lama

Here’s a super popular quick trip into Lhasa, in which the traveler flies in from somewhere near sea level in China, hits the main sites of Lhasa, and then takes a flight or train out. It seems so quick and convenient, but this trip puts you at hideously high risk of getting altitude sickness! We strongly recommend that you give yourself a little longer to get to Tibet, and longer in Tibet itself with either the 7 Day Sky Train to Lhasa Tour or the 10 Day Safer Everest Base Camp Tour.

Check out How to Travel to Lhasa for a collection of our best posts about Lhasa, how to get there, and what to do when you’re there.

This is a perfect example of what not to do when you travel to Lhasa.
