What to expect
Your private guide and personal driver will meet you in your hotel lobby by 8am and then visit the Songzanglin Monastery which is the largest Buddhist monastery in Yunnan province. The monastery is situated in the high altitude region over 3,300 metershigh, and is one of the famous monasteries in the Kang region. The monastery is full of treasures. There are a lot of golden figures of Buddha josses, golden lamps, Tibetan lections, silver censers and so on. All of these are wonderful collections accumulated from each dynasty.  Then continue your visit to Napahai Lake and Tibetan Village. The Napahai Lake is 3270 meters above sea level and covers 660 square Km. It  is a state-designated wetlands area with mountains standing by it on three sides and 10-plus rivers flowing into it after zigzagging through the grasslands. Lunch at a local restaurant. The visit to a Tibetan Village is also the highlight of this tour. You can experience the daily life and the living condition of the local people which is totally different from what you can imagine. The friendly citizens with ethnic costumes and the unique residence of the village will give you a deep impression. The last stop of this tour is Zhongdian Old Town. At about 17:00pm, the driver will take you back to your hotel.
