It is 264 Kilometers southwest of Lhasa and retains the charm of a traditional Tibetan town untouched by modern expansion. It made world headlines in 1904 when Colonel Younghusband led a British Expedition to Tibet and defeated the Tibetan army there. As a cross road on the principal trade route to India, it was once renowned for the excellence of its carpets. The compound, encircled by an impressive wall once contained 19 monasteries presided over by the still fortress perched atop a nearby mountain. Yamdroktso On the old road between Gyantse (4040m) and Lhasa, the dazzling Yamdrok Tso (4441m) can be seen from the summit of the Kamba-la pass (5030m).

The ideal company to assist in arranging your perfect visit to India We began our most enjoyable and exciting Indian adventure by staying at the Jyoti Mahal Hotel, wrapping up our travels there as well, with return visits in between at varying points on our itinerary, which included Kashmir, Chennai and Kerala and which was expertly and professionally arranged for us by Indo Tours & Travel. Some of the highlights of our trip were the times we stayed on houseboats, both in Kashmir and Kerala, and the hill station county of Munnar in Kerala. It was at Jyoti Mahal that we were introduced to Mr. Baljeet Jii, through our excellent points of contact, Mr. Bilal (Bill) Boktoo and Mr. Asif Sameer, managers with the company "Indo Tours & Travel". They helped plan our trip with smooth and worry-free connections, airport and taxi pick-up at various locations, and arranged drivers to and from other venues and sight-seeing. (Bill and Asif are deserving )

インドに6ヶ月滞在中、2度旅行に行きました。1度目は南インド、2度目は北インドに行きました。2回ともこちらの会社にお世話になり、最高の旅になりました。 メールの返信が早く、電話での対応も迅速でした。 仕事で忙しく、飛行機、ホテルなどの予約する時間がなかった私たちにとって、行きたい場所を伝えただけで、飛行機、電車、車、ホテルの予約、すべて行ってくれたのは、大変ありがたかったです。 こちらの会社はデリーにあります。2度目の旅では、行き先にデリーを含んでいたので、シンさんに実際にお会いすることができました。シンさんは気さくな方で、日本語が流暢であるのがとても印象的でした。次回、またインドに来る際は、こちらの旅行会社を利用したいです。
