Tibet Tour with Yarlung Valley

Trip Duration: 8 Days      

The Tibet Tour with Yarlung Valley is a fascinating tour of 8 days. It covers 4 major cities - full of culture and rich heritage like Lhasa, Xigatse, Gyantse and Tsedang. In fact, Tsedang is the cradle of the Yarlung Valley civilization. The term 'Yarlung' originates from the Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahamaputra River) like any other civilization developed on the bank of the big river. Your visit to Tsedang following the river belt of Yarlung Tsangpo takes you so close to Shangri-La on earth.

Besides, your visits to the several giant monasteries lavishly decorated with gold idols, colorful frescos and captivating pagodas in Tibetan style with pleasant smell of juniper incense and yak butter featuring rows of colorfully dressed Tibetan devotees offering yak butter in the lamps and chanting with the Tibetan mantra ‘Om Mane Padme Hum’ in the highly spiritual ambience of each monastery can really vibrate you to imagine of a completely different heavenly world. So, Tibet is aptly called ‘the last Shangri-La’ on earth. Come and visit the land of the Shangri-La. You will be taken back in time!
