Proposed Itinerary for Tibet in early November...any suggestions?

Jump to last reply

Finally, after so many years of talking about it, my husband and I are traveling to Tibet in late October/early November this year. We're traveling with another couple, flying to Chengdu where we will pick up the Tibet permits delivered by our Tibetan travel agency and then fly to Lhasa. I would appreciate and consider advice on our itinerary, restaurants, hotels or whatever from those of you out there who've been fortunate enough to have made the journey.

First of all, no, I won't take the train (for a lot of reasons starting with my actually getting any sleep on one will NEVER happen, regardless of how many sleeping pills I take) so don't try to suggest that as an option. We are flying.

Day 1 - fly to Lhasa Kyichu Hotel
Day 2 - Lhasa
Day 3 - Lhasa
Day 4 - Drive to Basum Tso Lake - Basumtso Holiday Resort
Day 5 - Drive to Nyingtri - Azalea Hotel
Day 6 - Drive to Langxia via Lama Ling monastery - Langxia Hotel
Day 7 - Drive Tsedang via Samye monastery - Yarlung River Hotel or Tsedang Hotel
Day 8 - Drive to Gyantse via Yamdrok Tso Lake - Yeti Hotel
Day 9 - Drive to Sakya then to Shegatse - Tashi Choten Hotel
Day 10 - Drive to Lhasa via Tashi Lhunpo monastery - Kyichu Hotel (or Sheraton depending on how much we liked the Kyichu)
Day 11 - Lhasa
Day 12 - fly back to Chengdu

FYI, I want to drive into the eastern region because it is supposed to be very beautiful and different from the high barren plateau of central Tibet. I want to stay in the "best hotel in town" which I realize might not be on par with what I'd expect in the US or Europe. One or two of our overnight stays might be situated just because it's a convenient stop. Of course I want to experience Tibet and Tibetan culture but realize that Han Chinese are part of the picture now whether I like it or not. Tibet undergoing change is interesting as well.

Specifically I'm wondering if one night in Shegatse and one night in Gyantse are enough?
