Day 3 Lhasa (B/L/-)
In the morning, visit of Drepung Monastery, which was once the world's largest monastery with a population of around 10,000 monks. The word Drepung literally translates as "rice heap", a reference to the huge numbers of white monastic buildings that once piled up on the hillside.
In the afternoon, move to Sera Monastery ( lies 4 km north of Lhasa, and was one of only eight [of some 3000] monasteries in all of Tibet to be spared the vicissitudes of the Cultural Revolution. It is here that the monks' famous daily debates take place, at 3.30pm. They are highly stylized with much clapping and stamping, and always attract many spectators. Photos are no problem, which is very rare in Tibet, so make the best of it. Sky burials are still occasionally practiced at Sera, although they are much less common than they used to be because of the unholy and unhealthy interest shown by tourists.)
After tour go back to hotel.
Lunch and dinner at local Chinese restaurants.
Overnight at Lhasa
