Attraction & Sightseeing In Lhasa

Brief Introduction  --  Sightseeing Index


Brief Introduction

Lhasa is both the political and religious heart of Tibet. While the Potala Palace, the home of the Dalai Lamas, the traditional theological rulers of Tibet was the former political heart of Tibet. Now, in the Tibet Autonomous Region, a province of China, Lhasa is still the political center.

The religious center of Tibet is Jokhang Temple, 2km to the east of the Potala. This 1300 year old temple houses a pure gold Buddha statue that was a gift from the Tang Dynasty of China.

Lhasa is also where all foreign travelers to Tibet must arrive first and arrange for travel to other places in Tibet. Although regulations change very rapidly and with little notice, current regulations require foreigners to apply for travel permits to most, if not all, destinations outside of Lhasa. 

Permit fees can range from RMB100 to 300 per destination. If you are traveling independently, the Lhasa PSB may not be willing to approve your permits and may refer you to a local Lhasa travel agency.
