Pabonka Monastery is located about 8 km northeast of Lhasa City. It is perched on the lower slope of Mount Dukri. Your guide will lead you from the hotel to the north side of the city, where you will see a view of the monastery on the hillside. From there, you will follow the rugged foot trail up to the monastery. Phapong Gang monastery is built on a flat-topped granite boulder. The original structure at the site may even predate the Jokhang Temple. It is the well known as the place where Thonmi Sambhota invented the Tibetan alphabet. The self-raised, six-word mantra can be seen in the assembly hall. Walk around the the monastery and you may even get a chance to talk and have butter tea with the friendly monks who live there. In the afternoon, we will make our way back down the trail to the hotel and relax.

We are 3 people that will travel from Chengdu to Lahsa by train, arriving around August 5th. We want to take 4 days tour in Lhasa.  We need to know how to book the tour with you, the price, how to pay it and what are the documents we need to go there. We will get our tourist visa to visit China after we book the tour. Two of us will travel form Chile in South America and our son -also chilean- will do it form South Africa. Stay tuned to reply

Hi, I am interested in this tour. But I cannot exert myself much and was wondering if I can skip the Kailash Kora and use other forms of transportation. I do however want to see Mt. Kailash. Also are you able to provide oxygen?
