Your first full day in Lhasa, drive to the Sera Monastery, where impressive rock paintings and carvings are on display, the sacred Jokhang Monastery, and the surrounding Barkhor market, where traders and pilgrims meet. The next day, visit the Potala Palace, Drepung Monastery, and explore the Norbulingkha, which once served as the summer palace of the Dalai Lamas.
