Lhasa

Nature At Its Best

The centre for the Tibetan Buddhists, Lhasa has been derived from the Tibetan word that means city of Gods. Over 1,300 years old, Lhasa sits in a valley right next to the Lhasa River. In the eastern part of the city, near the Jokhang Temple and Barkhor neighborhood, Tibetan influence is still strong and perpetual. It is common to see traditionally dressed Tibetans engaged on a kora (a clockwise circumambulation or walk around the Jokhang Temple), often spinning prayer wheels. The western part of Lhasa is more ethnically Han Chinese in character which is busier and looks moreover like a Chinese city. The infrastructures are more developed in comparison to the other parts of Lhasa. Some of the wonders of this place include the red and white Potala Palace soaring above the Holy city, Jokhang, Barkhor Piligrim Circuit all of which make the visitors fall in love with the city.

Lhasa due to its height has a cool semi-arid climate that protects it from intense heat and cold. Being one of the sunniest places of the world, during winter the temperature can drop till -0.3 degree Celsius till -8 degree Celsius due to which light snowfall could be seen along with some snowstorms. To get to Lhasa, there are flights available from Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Kunming, Qamdo, Shanghai, Xi’an, Xining, and Zhongdian (Shangri-La). International flights are available to Kathmandu, Nepal.
