... Dalai Lama's last bedroom exactly as he left it. Message: if you live a life with simplicity then it's easy to leave behind a spotless bedroom!

His only creature comfort that he owned was a humongous radio given to him by the president of India. The 13th Dalai Lama predicted the takeover of Tibet (a good oracle reader was he), and the current Dalai Lama was snuck out disguised as a soldier in 1959. His fascination was short wave radios and taking apart watches, who ...

... of their lives, to pay homage to these special places.

The following day was monastery day! We started off by visiting the Drehpung Monastery, once Tibet's largest monastery, now more of a pilgrimage site for Buddhists and a base for the Chinese police. We were yet again, overwhelmed by the sheer volume of golden Buddha statues and ornate decoration, as well as the Yuan notes strewn everywhere by the worshippers who pushed and squeezed in front of us to do ...

... you had was your berth. Mine was the bottom one so i could sit and look out with both feet on the bed and leaning against the short side f the bed. But John had the upper berth and from there you saw nothing and he had about 25 cm above his head as spare room. Not very nice for 32 hours. There were a few fold down seats in the corridor but they were uncomfortable and small. The altitude, for example 4513 ( in Qa Nu) affected ...

... of the nuns chanting and playing instruments during their evening prayers.

Should be note that the whole time we were walking around the main temple we were getting lots of stares. Guess visitors are something that gets them distracted though I would have thought they should be concentrating on what they were doing rather than following the people around them.

While wandering around found a room where nuns were copying scriptures and packaging them up. Of course ...

... Yunnan two days earlier, took a flight to Chengdu, Sichuan and then to Lhasa, Tibet. We flew over waves and waves of snow-capped mountains.

Arriving in Tibet, the sky was bright blue, the weather was sunny and breezy -- mid-60s, and the air was crisp. Chintan and I were a bit ecstatic and looking forward to our time in this dream destination spot. We met our guide, Tenzin, and the driver, and made ...

Great Location, Quality of Rooms Poor

Reviewed Sep 28, 2011

The hotel was right in the middle of Lhasa, situated only 50m away from the Jokhang square which was an excellent location and not very expensive with a double room for 200 rmb.

The building is quite run down and the quality of the rooms differs significantly. We stayed for 9 nights and have stayed at several rooms. First room was fine with only a non-functional window lock, second room didn't have a working shower and a broken toilet and in the third room the sink wasn't working properly with a broken bathtub meaning a bathroom flood every morning.

So overall conclusion, location is excellent however the hotel and rooms are badly maintained and run down. We would recommend first carefully inspecting the room before accepting it!
