"Roof of the World" Lhasa Things to Do Tip by Sharrie

Lhasa Things to Do: 188 reviews and 393 photos


Also known as the 'Roof of The World', Lhasa is the abode of many Dalai Lamas.

In this world of the murals painted in halls & doorways, the history, culture & religion of Tibet are preserved. It's a fascinating world of mystique & mythology.

Unfortunately no photography is allowed inside the Palace as well as the monasteries., ie. you've to go & see it for yourself!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
