These two historical sites are the symbol of Lhasa and Tibet. Being a high altitude plateau area, the accessibility in Tibet is very hard and to reach certain remote areas you have to travel on certain un-mettaled stretches. That's why while traveling in these remote areas a Jeep type of vehicle is best suited. These jeep safari tours, gives a golden opportunity for travelers to visit the monasteries and lakes situated in the high reaches of the Tibetan Himalayas.
Lhasa is home to Tibet’s most famous and holiest temples and generally from May to October is the best time to travel here, when the weather is mild. This is naturally the busiest travel time in Tibet. Lhasa is worthy of a couple of days to visit, if you have a tight schedule you may have a city tour around 2 or 3 days.
