Lhasa - Getting There Is Half The Fun!
Trip Start Feb 01, 2005

We were met at the train station by our Tibet guide, Ngawang, and taken to the extremely comfortable Yak Hotel, right in the centre of the city and almost spitting distance from the Potala Palace and Jokham temple.
The Potala Place is breathtaking and you can never tire of seeing it, as it rises above Lhasa. It is an immense 117 metres high with 13 floors in total and is constructed out of stone and timber
While in Lhasa, we also enjoyed the varying sites of Jokhang Temple, Deprung Monastery and Sera Monastery. The food is delicious and Yak has featured highly. We also enjoyed walking the streets, listening to the sounds and enjoying people watching, but always are eyes kept looking up to the amazing Potala Palace that defines Lhasa.
Now it is time for two full days of travel, to reach Mt. Everest Base Camp.
Footnote: Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace, Lhasa are UNESCO World Heritage listed. Lhasa Tibet also features in the book Unforgettable Places to See before you die.
