Lhasa Tibet Tourism Guide:
Nestled amidst the high reaches of the Great Himalayan Range, Lhasa Tibet exudes an otherworldly charm found in few alpine destinations, despite the many changes and high-scale development by the Chinese government. Tibetans might be few in between, the city might resemble a Chinese city with a majority of Hans Chinese population and supermarkets, but the essence of Lhasa Tibet and its picturesque beauty is far from lost.
Take a tour and revel in the multi-cultural potpourri of the highest plateau of the world. Enter the spectacular Potala Palace, the Winter Residence of His Holiness Dalai Lama and enjoy an hour-long guided tour of its impressive interiors. Visit the Jokhang Temple for a glimpse into Tibetan Buddhism and the unbendable faith of its followers and walk the Barkhor pilgrim circuit around the Jokhang to browse through the colourful stalls for Lhasa Tibet souvenirs including religious prayer flags and amulets.
Plan excursions to the outskirts of Lhasa to two of the Great Three Gelukpa University Monasteries: Sera Monastery and Drepung Monastery to discover lesser-known facets of Tibetan Buddhist monks and see them in action – debating, teaching and praying. If all that exploring at such a high altitude tires you out, rejuvenate yourself with a traditional massage or a picnic amidst the scenic environs of Norbulingka or the Precious Stone Garden, the Summer Palace of His Holiness Dalai Lama.
In all, Lhasa Tibet is a city with no parallels or boundaries; despite the overtly touristic tones imposed by the Chinese, its spirituality beams through.
