Lhasa Tibet Adventure
Coco helped us plan our ideal trip to recent trip Tibet. She was informative, patient, and helped us tailor the trip to our own needs. She made excellent suggestions and supported us with the permits, travel itinerary, and even flights. She is an incredible asset to the China Highlights Team! Our local guide Tenzin was also excellent and flexible with us each day. I was hit with some altitude sickness and Tenzin helped me get oxygen and medicine needed. He worked with us each day to help us eat local foods and recommended ideal times to visit sites to minimize wait times. We were able to see everything on our list and eat excellent food. Thank you Coco and Tenzin!more

Spiritual connection brought me back to Potala
Potala Palace mesmerizes me with its charm since 1997 when I first laid eyes on a photograph hung onto a wall at a monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal. From then on, I dreamt of visiting this place before I leave this world. The only thing that held me back choosing from my other favorite travel destinations that I travelled to in the past, is the fear of high altitude sickness and breathing difficulty. Once I step foot onto it, I felt a spiritual connection to this place. I climbed up to the top at the peak without any issue and gazed at Lhasa city from the top. It was a rare and wonderful experience.more

Lhasa - what a special place
Lhasa welcomed us with sunshine, but Sonem with an even brighter smile. It was a great pleasure to have him as guide - an exceedingly kind person. With his profound knowledge and experience, he gave us deep insights in the daily life of a Tibetan. The highlight of our stay was, of course, the visit of the Potala Palace, but we also wouldn’t have missed the discussion of the monks or the Yoghurt Festival. Thank you, Sonem, for the perfect organization.more

Top of the World!
From our welcome at the airport with the traditional Tibetan scarves to our departure 3 days later, out time in Lhasa was nothing short of fabulous! Our guide, Tenzin was exceptionally energetic, knowledgeable and friendly. He made sure our time was spent experiencing the many wonderful sites as well as learning about the history and culture of this exciting place. Potala palace is magnificent inside and out. Be sure to return to the nightly fountain show... the icing on the cake! The monasteries were very interesting and the location of many is breathtaking. We enjoyed Barkhor Street, especially at night when the lights create a serene atmosphere, a great contrast to the hustle and bustle during daylight. Outside the city, the drive to Yomdrok Lake is beautiful and the lake itself amazing. Stopping along the way to see the prayer flags flying in the wind left no doubt that you are in a special place. Thank you to China Highlights and their local partners, in particular our fabulous guide Tenzin for organizing and executing a most wonderful trip!more

Great time with the Best Guide Norbu
I can’t say enough good things about China Highlights as they organized everything for us - the visa, guide and itinerary. When I asked for changes to make sure we saw the debates (none on sundays) they made the change. When my daughter was suffering from altitude sickness itinerary was adjusted to give her more time to recover. We had a fantastic guide - Norbu. His background was as interesting as Lhasa. While all of the guides we have had so far have had good English command, some are harder to understand than others making it hard work at times. Norbu’s English is embarrassingly good (as I have no capability in any other languages and am dependent on others learning English). He was very kind to my daughter while she was struggling. I highly recommend you ask for him as he will add to the enjoyment of your tripmore

LHASA - TIBET WITH KELSANG FROM CHINA HIGHLIGHTS
KELSANG was our Guide Tour in LHASA - TIBET. His English was great and he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Since he picked us up from the airport till we left LHASA, KELSANG had always a smile, showed us his heart and soul and accommodate all our needs. We had a great time with KELSANG! All places mentioned above are unique and very special! Our experience in Tibet was stunning and we will not forget it for the rest of our lives! We will highly recommend KELSANG as your local guide tour in TIBET and ask for ALISA when contacting China Highlights as she will organize your tours as no one else will! Believe me!more

china highlights is well organized(Tibet and Beijing)
I could say so many wonderful things about China Highlights; they have great qualified, knowledgeable guides and drivers, they understand the flight in and out and work around it beautifully, the prices are good, and the correspondence is top notch. Bit tops I would say, is they are efficient and organized. It can be a little worrisome planning a trip to the other side of the world. My agent through the whole process was Coco and she couldn't have done better. She answered every question, before and during the trip.more

Day by Day Itinerary
Hotel: Yangshuo Snow Lion Riverside Resort or similar
Arrive in Yangshuo Town in the morning and meet your English-speaking guide at the appointed time and meeting point.
Start your amazing trip with Xianggong Hill. Spend 20 minutes ascending to have a breathtaking view over the best bend of the Li River.
Descend the hill to get close to the River and walk along it to enjoy the gorgeous scenery. Your 3½-hour hike will end in Xingping Ancient Town. Feel the stone street under foot, and trace its medieval history from the old brick buildings lining the roadsides. Don’t miss the 20 yuan banknote scene — it’s a great photo op!
At the end of the day, your guide and driver will transfer you to your Yangshuo hotel and assist you with check-in.
Enjoy a BBQ dinner when Yangshuo lights up, and feel the lively atmosphere on the banks of the Li River.
Hotel: Yangshuo Snow Lion Riverside Resort or similar
Yangshuo is very famous for its picturesqueness, with bizarre mountains, crystal waters, and idyllic countryside views. Let’s ride a sidecar to explore the picture-postcard landscape.
After breakfast, your guide will meet you in the hotel lobby, and we’ll head to Nunnery Hill and Lion-Dragon Hill.
Encounter well-preserved Liugong Village when you leave the hills, which was the distribution center for merchants and commodity exchanges in the old days. You will feel like you have journeyed back to olden times when you see the Qing (1644–1912) and Ming (1368–1644) dynasty architecture. Wander outside the village, you and will be stopped by the '3-Color Pools'.
Then return to West Street, also called ‘Foreigner Street’ because many foreigners have made their home there. You will see bars, Internet cafes, and handicraft shops lining this 1,400-year-old street.
In the morning, begin by cycling along the Yulong River, which is the most beautiful tributary of the Li. Smell the fresh air and appreciate stunning karst formations.
Then rest your bike in Fenglou Village, and follow a narrow path passing through paddy fields and going up a hill. You will meet two natural arches hidden in their rocky home, and you may be surprised by the landscape on the other side when going through them. Enjoy the exclusive views and peaceful moments at this point. (If you are not interested in hill-climbing, you can rest at the hill’s foot and enjoy a cup of coffee in the boutique hotel there for a relaxing time.)
Take the same way back, and it will be time to say goodbye at noon. Your guide and driver will drop you off at Yangshuo Town. Then make your own way to a train station or Guilin’s airport. We wish you a safe and happy journey home!
