"Sunset on Lhasa River (Kyi Chu)" Lhasa Off The Beaten Path Tip by gordonye

Lhasa Off The Beaten Path: 51 reviews and 105 photos

Lhasa River is an amazing expanse of water, peaceful, very wide and backed by giant mountains. The dramatic sky reflected in the water is incredible. Along the river there is a nice paved path and you see colorful prayer flags fluttering in the wind. To get there just walk south from the Potala Palace area.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
