China travel guide

China - Tibet (Chapter)

14th Edition May 2015

This is the Tibet chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.

Perhaps the true highlight of Tibet, though, is the Tibetan people, from crimson-robed monks to wild-haired pilgrims, whose colour, good humour and religious devotion are what makes travelling across the plateau such a profound joy.

  • hang out with Tibetan pilgrims in the holy city of Lhasa
  • maps
  • marvel at the murals of angels and demons in the 108 chapels of the Gyantse Kumbum, an architectural wonder
  • transport
  • do the three-day pilgrim circuit around sacred Mt Kailash
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Lhasa & around, Ganden Monastery, Nam-tso, Samye Monastery, The Friendship Highway, Yamdrok-Tso, Gyantse, Shigatse, Sakya, Rongphu Monastery & Everest Base Camp, Tingri, Zhāngmù, Lhatse, Mt Kailash & around, and Lake Manasarovar.
