DAY 6

Sightseeing tour in Lhasa, Potala Palac

POTALA PALACE the Potala is considered one of the great wonders of the world. It is held sacred by Tibetans as the former residence of successive Dalai Lamas, and is one of Tibet's most holy pilgrimage sites. A palace was originally built in the 7 th century by King Songtsen Gampo, and was believed to have been nine stories high, but around the 9 th century it is believed to have been destroyed by a big fire. The present Potala Palace was constructed by the great fifth Dalai Lama in the 17 th century after he became ruler of Tibet. The Potala Palace is divided into two sections, the White Palace (completed in 1653) and Red palace (completed 1694). It has more than one thousand rooms and is thirteen stories high. The White Palace was secular in nature and mainly used for government administration, whilst the Red palace was mainly used for religious functions and still has numerous chapels, including those containing reliquary stupas of the successive Dalai Lamas which are richly decorated in gold, silver and semi-precious stones. JOKANG TEMPLE the Jokang is Tibet’s most sacred temple, the main point of pilgrims from the entire Tibetan plateau. Located at the heart of the ancient town of Lhasa, it was built in the 7 th century by the Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo’s queen Bhrikuti on a site identified by Queen Wencheng according to her geomantic calculation. The temple is 3 stories high and it is constructed with enormous chapels including the most sacred statue of Budhha Shakyamuni, enshrined. It has around 70 monks nowadays. ANCIENT BHARKOR STREET is the most sacred pilgrimage site in Lhasa and it is full of pilgrims from down till dusk. There are four huge prayer flags situated in Bhakor street which surrounds the Jokang, known respectively as Gadhen Dharchen in the northeast, Juyak Dharchen in the west, Kelsang Dharchen in the southwest and SharKyaring Dharchen in the southeast. The Bharkor street is the most active market in all Tibet and it is possible to purchase traditional Tibetan artifacts, religious implements, antiques, modern goods, books, music, clothing, spices, fresh meat and vegetable.

Terrific, courtesy, conscientious guides-- the tour of a lifetime-- I can recommend these folks with enthusiasm and without qualification. Two friends and I took a three week tour though Tibet-- from Lhasa, along the southern route west, to a three day trek around Mt Kailash, through the Guge Kingdom, then along the Northern route back to Lhasa (cutting south to reconnect with the southern highway). Throughout our guide and driver were topnotch professional-- well informed and always on the look out for interesting stops. Along the grueling three day pilgrimage around Mt Kailash they made pivotal decisions that made the trek do-able. Our guide was especially knowledgeable about Buddhism-- so the tours through the many extraordinary temple sites were all the more eye-opening. Like I said, the tour of a lifetime. Read more

For my second trip to central Tibet I wanted to explore a different area. I had visited Lhasa before and other popular locations. Thoroughly enjoyed my time in Lhasa seeing the Potala Palace again plus some lesser known sights. The historical sites around Samye and Tsedang and some local villages we visited were the highlight of the trip. Tsering was a great guide and his local knowledge of the Tsedang area was most valuable. Both he and the manager Dawa were flexible and accommodating about my itinerary. The driver Ngawa was also very helpful. I can't wait to go to Tibet again. I would definitely recommend this company. Read more

Short but memorable trip to Lhasa, Tibet This was our first trip to Lhasa and something we've wanted to do for a long time. I searched the website for agents in Lhasa and was glad to stumble on Tibet Shambhala Adventure. Dawa was very accommodating and communication with him was via What'sApp. There was a lot of planning needed for this trip and, fortunately, Dawa was always available to talk to and sort things out. We were warmly welcomed in Lhasa by our travel guide, Phuntsok, who was very accommodating and did his best to take good care of us. He'd always show up before time and met every request we put forth. He was also very patient with us particularly when visiting all the monasteries located at various elevations. I only wish we had allowed ourselves more days to explore further out of Lhasa. Perhaps, that is for next time then:-)) Read more
