And this 4 days Lhasa Holy Landmarks City Tour is made exactly to show you the best flavor of this exotic holy power into the Himalayas. Nothing to visit but rest and acclimatize best on your arrival day; on the second day, you will visit the soaring and solemn Potala Palace that still looks very awe-inspiring even with the absence of its host.
