The tour starts at Lhasa with the first day to get acclimatized with the altitude and another two days sightseeing around the city, then moves on to Shigatse along the hypnotizing blue Yamdrok Lake, and through the ancient princely state of Gyantse and its wide laid fields. Shigatse, the second-largest city of Tibet is especially known for its active nightlife. Moving on to Lhatse the next day, starts more of the real Tibet with lesser Chinese constructions and more of wild plains of the Tibetan Plateau and Lakes.
