Lhasa, TibetGet Rating Widget!

Overall Rating: 3.60 based on 10 ratings

Lhasa (200,000) is the capital city of Tibet. Lhasa means “Place of the Gods” and is the traditional home of the Dalai Lama. The city exists in the Lhasa Valley, 12,000 ft above sea level. During the early half of the 20th century, European explorers, including Heinrich Harrer, visited Lhasa. The population is primarily Tibetan with influxes of Mainland Chinese who began moving into the region in the later half of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st. (Add picture)

It would be a nicer city if it wasn't occupied by the Reds... 1

My husband and I took a motorcycle tour from Kathmandu to Lhasa. The journey was really rough (everyone, except I, got sick either from the altitude or from the food/water), but well worth it; it was truly a test of character. Lhasa was definite the nicest city in Tibet. There was a lot to do (shop, sightsee) and the food was really good compared to evertwhere else we had been (with the exception of Kathmandu). I would strongly recommend visiting this part of the world to anyone who is up for the challenge. This was an adventure, not a "vacation". 2
