My family and I took a Tibet Flight to Lhasa from Shanghai and had a nice tour guide with us who was pure Tibetan, and fluent in English.  The entire trip to Lhasa was incredible, with delicious Tibetan cuisine, yak milk, and meat that is only found in this region. We were thrilled to see the ancient structures, and the tomb, and to learn more about the Dalai Lama's past. One thing that was holding us back was a headache caused by a lack of oxygen. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and I advise travelers to spend a few days somewhere with a moderate mindset before traveling to Tibet.
