I Can Do It - Only 364 Steps

... br> As it is all over the area, we went through security screening twice, had to show ticket three times, and even our passport! There were police and guards everywhere. You can take pictures outside, but none inside the museum nor the inside of the palace,not even from the upper roof (may show police/troops). They do not have post cards that show the inside. It is considered very sacred. I learned that when a Dali Lama dies, his living quarters are not used ...

Lhasa Nice Day

... my morning I sat in the nice arm chair in the hotel room looking out at some locals sauntering about in the small streets below and on the adjoining buildings roof tops. They were on their phones, drying clothes and trainers, sat chatting and playing with children. It occurred to me that I might never find T-shirt that I liked and fitted, this did not over worry me as the prices here were on par with back home.

... I’d seen a television documentary on Tibet which featured the monks debating – something which traditionally happens every day at 3 pm and it had fascinated me. We arrived early and wandered up the main pathway towards the central hall – a lot of the living quarters were in disrepair – broken windows, wooden boards and doors in need of painting; there has been a great reduction in the number of monks in the monastery due to ...

Drak Yurpa Monastery

A travel blog entry by dj-travelblog09 on Apr 12, 2009

This is a posthumous entry but I can still remember this day as clearly as if I was there yesterday. It was probably not a great idea going so high so early but we were told by our guide it was 'only' about 4200m but in fact it was 4850m as displayed on the massive sign as we approached the cliffs. Our permit did not allow us to go to any of what are considered the 3 great monasteries in and around Lhasa, the Ganden, Sera and Drepung Monastery. Wanting to get our ...
