Day 4: Lhasa Sightseeing- Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Market

After an early breakfast we commence our sightseeing tour and visit Potala Palace. The impressive 13-storied structure dominates Lhasa’s landscape. The palace served as the winter retreat of Dalai Lama. Potala Palace was built during the 7th century on the Marpo Ri (Red Mountain). Later in the day we head to Jokhang Temple & Barkhor Market. Buddhism in Tibet spread after Jokhang Temple was built. The temple was built by King Songsten Gampo to house the idol of Lord Buddha brought by his Nepalese Queen Brikuti from Nepal. Barkhor Square, a busy local market surrounds this temple. Walk around and watch pilgrims prostrating or shop for souvenirs.

Day 5: Drive Lhasa to Shigatse(3800m) visit Tashilhunpo Monastery, Local Market

Today we drive to Shigatse. The landscape of Tibet is barren and arid, and we soak in its unique beauty. On reaching Shigatse we visit Tashilhunpo Monastery, one of the six monasteries of the Gelugpa Sect. The monastery which lies at the base of Drolma Ri is the seat of the revered Panchen Lama. Later shop for souvenirs at the local market.

Day 6: Drive Shigatse to Saga (4580m)-447km

Today we drive for about 7 hours to Saga. Driving across the Tibetan highland, we pass through quaint nomadic settlements and ancient monasteries. After reaching Saga check into a hotel and rest.

Day 7: Drive Saga to Mansarover(4560m)

From Saga we drive to Mansarover. The drive is filled with mesmerizing vistas. The beautiful Mansarover Lake lies surrounded by brown hills and snowy peaks. The sacred lake is believed to have been created by Lord Brahma. We stay overnight at a local guesthouse or hotel.

Day 8: Drive Mansarover to Darchen(4620m)

From Mansarover we drive to Darchen. Before continuing to Darchen, take a holy dip in Mansarover’s sacred waters, light incense and perform puja. If you wish, you can do a Mansarover parikrama on horseback or on a yak. 
Darchen lies at the base of Mount Kailash. From Darchen an excursion to Asthapad can be arranged at an extra cost. Asthapad Mountain is the ultimate pilgrimage site for Jains as the first Jain Tirthankara attained nirvana at this mountain.  Once can enjoy close up views of Nandi Parvat and Mt. Kailash from Asthapad. Stay overnight at a hotel or guesthouse.

Day 9: First Day of Parikrama to Dirapuk(4860m)

We begin our Kailash parikrama by walking through Yam Dwar(4730m). The ‘Yam Dwar’ (Gateway of Yamraj’s abode) is a chorten with a passage. It is believed that one has to enter Kailash- abode of Lord Shiva by passing through Yamaraj’s (Lord of Death) door. From Yam Dwar we begin our Kailash Parikrama. Trek or ride a pony to Dirupuk(5160m). Overnight at guest house.
Note: As Kailash Parikrama can be physically taxing those who don’t feel like exerting themselves will stay at Darchen and wait for the rest of the group to complete the parikrama. 

Day 10: Second Day of Parikrama to Zuthulpuk(4670m)

Wake up early and continue with the Kailash parikrama, retracing the same path millions of devotees have treaded. Today’s trek is extremely strenuous as we walk for more than 8 hours traversing the high Drolma La(5630m) pass. While descending to Zuthulpuk, you get to view Gauri Kunda, the sacred lake where Goddess Parvati created Ganesh while taking bath. Overnight at a guest house or tented camp.
