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!

... sits mostly over 4000 meters. Every once in a while the snow capped jagged peaks make an appearance and that high mountain feeling starts to set in. The desolation is similar to the Bolivian Altiplano and I think they can learn a few things about crop cultivation from their South American counterparts. The rolling hills match that of southern Mongolia with vast sheep herds but the camels are replaced by yaks and here there are substantially ...

... and wetlands shattered with autumn colored trees. After leaving Chengdu's not so nice weather the bright blue vibrant sky over Lhasa was definitely a welcoming sight! My neighbor was nice enough to move aside so I could take a few snaps before a steward told me I couldn't use my phone....even though it was on airplane mode! Anyway, I was still very excited to see more of Lhasa! I was greeted with a White Tibetan Scarf when I landed by Mr. Tenzin who ...

Departure from Tibet

For some reason, high altitude has resulted in some rather odd dreams and I spent a restless night because of them, but eventually it was time to get up, shower, dress, pack and then repack when various overlooked items, such as a shirt I washed the previous evening hanging in the bathroom, were discovered. We went down to breakfast, couldn't find any spoons, refused the cold fried eggs thrust at us and then managed to get what we needed ...

... these had a mobile phone in her hand. In another room found a couple of them sitting and reading through them.

From the nunnery we headed out to the Tromsikhang Markets via the muslim quarter. Here we saw a small mosque with its small minerate and lots of muslems with their skull caps and scarfs. Basically only did a quick walk through the streets here making out way out to the main raod and then onto the Ramoche Temple. Along the way am pretty sure I got busted (well at ...
