Lhasa Things to Do: 188 reviews and 393 photos

by sachara

The Norbulinka summerpalace is situated in a beautifull garden. Many Tibetans visit this garden for a picnic or just a walk. Also there are performances of Tibetan dances and opera in this garden at the end of July. We were just one week too late.

In the garden you have a great view at the colourful architecture of the palaces. In one of the courtyards you can also find the remnants of an old dodge and two austins. These first cars in Tibet were brought there in pieces by yaks over the Himalayas.
