Lhasa
Lhasa
Lhasa, the capital city of China's Tibetan Autonomous Region, 3,650 meters above sea level, has more hours of sunlight per year than any other city, thus earning it the name "City of Sunlight". Both inside the city and on the outskirts of town there are many noble palaces and temples such as the Potala Palace, Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery and Jokhang Temple. These historic sites are well worth going to. Wherever you look, you will see devout believers and pilgrims paying their respects. Chakpori Hill is a good place for beautiful photos of Potala Palace in the light of the early morning. At the beautiful tree-lined Zongjiao Lukang Park, you can see Potala Palace reflected in the water. On bustling Barkhor Street, you can purchase colorful, unique Tibetan souvenirs. There are many precious artifacts on display at the Tibet Museum. If you want to experience a quieter and more tranquil environment, you can go to Xianzu Island in the southern part of the city.

Historical Architecture
Temple
曹 操The Jokhang Temple combines the architectural styles of Tibet, Tang, Nepal, and India, and has become a classical model of Tibetan religious architecture. In front of the temple, incense lingers all day long, and the devotees piously bowed down on the bluestone floor in front of the door, leaving deep marks of the length of their heads. Ten thousand butter lamps are always bright, leaving traces of time and pilgrims. What is the reason for this? There are only 3 statues of Buddha Sakyamuni in this world, 8-year-old Sakyamuni, 12-year-old Sakyamuni, and 25-year-old Sakyamuni. The world believes that seeing this image is the incarnation of the Lord Buddha, and seeing this image means that you have seen the true body of the Buddha. The 25-year-old statue of the Lord Buddha was far away in India, and the 8-year-old statue was also destroyed in the war with the Jokhang Temple. Only the 12-year-old statue brought by Princess Wencheng remains in the Jokhang Temple. That's why believers in China will come to the Jokhang Temple not far away to worship!
Namtso
4.6/5
2,705 Reviews
Lake
M26***151. Sooner or later is the perfect time to shoot Namtso Lake scenery. Namtso's light and shadow are often in flux, and bright light and shadow effects may appear at any time. It is strongly recommended to stay overnight in Namtso if you like photography. 2. There are many practicing monks and nuns around Nam Co. Friends who like humanistic photography may wish to communicate with them. 3. Namtso is not closed in winter, visitors have the opportunity to photograph the most beautiful Namtso in winter. 4. The observation deck was newly built on the Tashi Peninsula, but it is very windy and it is difficult to climb up. If you have good physical strength, you can climb up the steps to take pictures of the distant view.

4.6/5
1,978 Reviews
杨耀棵The family caught up with the last scene of the 2020 Princess Wencheng drama in Lhasa. Thousands of people performed a live drama under the mountain.

Shocking! Interesting and fun, overall superb, nice view, high cost performance,
Norbulingka

Garden
IoriFIt is worth a visit here. In the western suburbs of Lhasa, there is a large palace garden with lush trees and flowers-Norbulingka. "Robu" means "baby" and "linka" means "garden". Therefore, Norbulingka is known as the "Baby Garden".
Sera Monastery
4.5/5

Temple
小小绿带爆米花Sera Monastery is one of the three major monasteries in Lhasa. Too greedy to look at these blue sky and white clouds, and did not stay too much. There are too many Buddhist temples in Tibet. To me, an outsider, it is like playing the piano.
