Pick of the week: Lhasa, Tibet

With an average height towering more than 13,000 feet above sea level, it is no wonder why Lhasa is known as the “Roof of the World”. This mysterious Buddhist Kingdom offers visitors spellbinding religious monuments, exotic cultures, and breathtaking scenery of some of the world’s tallest mountains. Visit Lhasa’s most famed attractions on our Tibet Highland & Yangtze River Tour (RDT).

Visit the architectural wonder and cardinal landmark of Lhasa - Potala Palace on day 9 of your Tibetan adventure. Built on the Red Hill overlooking the city, this exquisite palace covers over 100 acres and was once a spiritual and temporal palace of the Dalai Lama.

Descend the palace grounds and stroll along Barkhor Street, an old section of Lhasa lined with colorful street stalls and colorful ethnic handicrafts. Continue on the Jokang Lamasery, the most important pilgrimage site in Tibet.

Return to your five star hotel for the night and rest up for tomorrow’s adventure. Depart Lhasa and head to Yamdrok Yumsto Lake, one of Tibet’s three holy lakes, which rests over 14,000 feet above sea level. Enjoy a picnic lunch alongside the river and take in the stunning natural vistas of sparkling waters and rolling mountains.
