Tibet travel guide

Tibet - Lhasa (Chapter)

9th Edition Mar 2015

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

Despite rampant modernisation and expansion, Lhasa (the Place of the Gods) is still a city of wonders. The red and white Potala Palace soaring above the holy city still raises the goose bumps, while the old Tibetan quarter continues to preserve the flavour of traditional Tibetan life.

  • following monks, mendi­cants and fellow pilgrims around the medieval pilgrim path, the Bar-khor circuit
  • maps
  • joining the lines of awed pilgrims around the glowing shrines of the Jokhang, Tibet’s holiest sanctum
  • transport
  • ogling the murals and stupas at the Red Palace of the Potala, the impressive but spiritless citadel of the Dalai Lamas
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Lhasa & around, Drepung Monastery, Nechung Mon-astery, Sera Monastery, Pabonka Monastery, Ganden Monastery, Drak Yerpa, Drölma Lhakhang, and Shongse (Shugsheb) Nunnery.
