Mission Possible: Tibet (Part I)

A travel blog entry by sashadasha


Tashi delek! (Hi in Tibetan)

It has been Dasha's dream to get to this highest, most elevated and most isolated place on earth. Unlike Thailand or Laos, getting to Tibet was not an easy task. It was a complex process in which both our hearts and souls were invested in reaching the "roof of the world."

First of all, the government …

Eindelijk Tibet!

A travel blog entry by suzanne-pascal


Tashi Dele!

Voor Pascal was Tibet een van de belangrijkste bestemmingen tijdens de wereldreis. Vanuit Nederland was het niet goed mogelijk een individuele reis te regelen en groepsreizen waren te duur en natuurlijk ook minder avonturistisch! Daarnaast bleek het onmogelijk een treinreis naar Lhasa te boeken vanuit NL, wat wij erg graag …

Sept 1: After a writing morning, I packed up and our truck left Lhasa minus 3 of our original 8 passengers. Dave ended up getting really quite sick – him and Sarah, his wife, had already missed the Golmud to Lhasa section as Dave had an …

A Final Goodbye!

A travel blog entry by dinoshona

We were happy to arrive in Lhasa after our 7 hour drive from Shigatse.

Shigatse had been a nice little break, for the first time in a long time we had a great nights sleep in clean white linen sheets, with no bugs, leaks or anything else that is usually unexpected.

The drive had been routine until we suddenly hit a road block. …

Fast road back to Lhasa

... under the brownie listing it stated that no funny leaves included. The description for a dish that contained mushrooms stated they were not magical.

After a satisfying meal we found our way back to our hotel so we could repack from our road trip to fit the airline weight requirements. We left some items behind to make weight. My decades old black lug boots served me well in Tibet but the rest of the trip will have to be done in my ...

Great Location, Quality of Rooms Poor

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!
