... peaks. Built in 779 AD it is the 1st monastery for monks in Tibet. Unfortunately the original monastery was destroyed during the cultural revolution with the current monastery reconstructed in the 1980s.
Then for a three and a half drive to Lhasa (another permit check) and after checking into our quaint Tibetan Hotel, we had the rest of the day free. We wandered ...

... warmer temps. The majority of the tour, especially those who hadn't yet been trekking, woke up with headaches and lack of appetite from the altitude, which just got worse through the day as we drove over two 5000m passes, and spent most of the day above 4500m. After a couple of hours of driving we stopped at the 5005m Lalungla Pass to stretch our legs and take pictures where we had an incredible view of the 8012m Shisha Pangma, another of the 14 8000m peaks in the ...

We had a later start today, which was welcomed, before heading over to check out Potala Palace. It was impressive... well maintained and large. Inside are the tombs of various previous Dalai and Panchen Lamas, most of which are covered in shitloads of gold.

This hostel, located in the Downtown area of Lhasa, is near Potala Palace, Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery (Zhebang Si), and Barkhor Street.
