Lhasa the city is at the elevation of about 3,600 m. Normal people at this height would haave altitude sickness, such as headache, vomit, diarrhea and so on. I had them all. At first 8 days in Lhasa, I had headache EVERYDAY! I was really upset and thought my travel life was finished. I then had a fever at the 8th day. On that day, I just couldn't help sleeping all day and took medicine while I was awake. To the astonishment,I was totally recovery since the 9th day! Buddha bless me!
This is the typically traditional costune of tibetan women. If you've ever been to Mexico or Latin America and observed the Indians women, maybe you would find the same thing as mine - they have the same braids style! Amazing!
In Sera temple, everyday ,except on Sunday,there's " bian-jing",which means lamas have to ask questions to each other in order to think deeper and wider.
- Pros:Lazy life & Ba-jiao Street
- Cons:Altitude Sickness
- In a nutshell:Physically demanding place!
It's a traditional tibetan tea house, someone might think it looks dirty and might be afraid to enter. Then you really... more travel advice
Walk along Ba kuo street in Lhasa. Start low and say at least 30% of the origin price. more travel advice
