... Dalai Lama in the 18th century. We were able to visit the residences built by several Dalai Lamas including the present Dalai Lama who was able to spend 3 summers here before he left Tibet. We even saw his bathroom and sitting room as well as his impressive gold throne. We were not able to take photos of these special places. Later we visited the Tibet Museum which contained many impressive and ancient ...

... begins with 3 days in Lhasa to give you a chance to acclimatise to the altitude. The first day consists of getting picked up from the train station and taken to your hotel. Our hotel was in the middle of the city and from the top of the roof, you have panoramic views of the city and a good view of Potala Palace (more later on that). With the exception of a quick look around the market and to get some local food (Yak burger) that was all for day 1. Day 2 - Today we got picked up ...

The day to set of on the 24hr train journey into Tibet had come. Having met up with the 3 other people I'd be sharing the trek with the day before, we were already acquainted. We'd met through a message board on the lonely planet website a couple of months earlier. It's not possible to simply get a visa and wonder around Tibet on your own, unless you are Chinese. All foreign visitors can only do so as part of an organised tour group ...

... and our guide never even mentioned it; most disappointing. Although there was a twist.When I told our (Tibetan) driver about the dancing the next morning he told us it is a government sponsored event; i.e. people are forced or paid to go along to give tourists, both foreign and Chinese the impression that Tibet is a happy, happy place. The Tibetans don't like it one bit! Didn't stop it being fun, but it did take the edge off it and possibly explain why Paldin didn't tell us ...
