On the roof of the world

The most breathtaking view in Lhasa is from the roof of the Jokhang temple to the Potala Palace......

The location of Lhasa in the valley between high mountains is marvellous. The most areas of Lhasa have a lot of modern chinese buildings.

Outside town are some nice monasteries, such as the Sera Monastery and the Drepung Monastery.

    Compact camera, digital...no matter what you are using, you get some amazing shots. A fascinating place, especially the Sera Monastery.
