Day 1-2: (Dinner Included) Malta to Chengdu
Depart Malta on your scheduled overnight flight to Chengdu in China. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel before in time for dinner.

Day 3: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Included) Chengdu to Lhasa
Today you will fly to Lhasa Airport in Tibet. On arrival into Lhasa you will be met by your local guide and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day will be at leisure in order to acclimatise to the altitude.

Days 4-5: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Included) Lhasa
After breakfast this morning you will visit the spectacular Potala Palace, the spiritual and symbolic heart of the Tibetan nation. After lunch visit the Jokhang temple, Lhasa’s other main attraction. After breakfast on day five visit the Norbulingka, which translates as the Treasure Garden and is also known as the Summer Palace. The summer palace is where the Dalai Lama would have lived and spent most of his time until he reached the age of eighteen and was ready to take on greater responsibilities. After lunch a short ride will take you to the 600 year old Sera Monastery.

Day 6: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Included) Lhasa to Shigatse
Today you will be leaving Lhasa and travelling by train to Tibet’s second city, Shigatse, passing by rural villages, mountain peaks and rivers. After lunch on arrival you will have a chance to explore the Tashilhuunpo monastery. Now home to Tibet’s largest number of monks, this vast complex of buildings, temples and prayer halls is essentially a walled town in its own right. The temple of Jampa — the future Buddha — housing the world’s largest gilded statue and the Monastery’s assembly hall with its stunning courtyard are not to be missed.

Day 7: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Included) Shigatse to Gyantse
This morning you will be travelling to Gyantse with an opportunity to visit a traditional Tibetan family’s house on the way — a great insight into Tibetan culture and the central role religion plays in their lives. After lunch you will visit Pelkor Chode Monastery and the monumental Gyantse Kumbum, a chorten 35 metres high and built on six floors, filled with thousands of exquisite original paintings. The monastery, founded in 1418, is surrounded by ancient red-bricked battlements and still receives a steady influx of wondering pilgrims. It is no wonder this is one of Tibet’s must see attractions.

Day 8: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Included) Gyantse to Lhasa
Today leave Gyantse to embark on a journey that will take you through some of the most stunning scenery in the world, Yamdrok Lake and Karo La Glacier. Make sure you bring your camera to capture some truly mesmerising photo opportunities.
