Lhasa Travel Guide
Lhasa, which means “Land of the Gods” and is over 1,300 years old. Lhasa is the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region, sits in a valley right next to the Lhasa River’s north bank in a valley of the Himalayas. In the eastern part of the city, near the Jokhang Temple and Barkhor neighborhood, Tibetan influence is still strong and evident and it is common to see traditionally dressed Tibetans engaged on a kora (a clockwise circumambulation or walk around the Jokhang Temple), often spinning prayer wheels. Long dilapidated, the area has been given a thorough renovation and is now quite pleasant to wander around, and is also by far the most atmospheric area to stay. Rising atop Red Mountain at an altitude of 3,700m, the red-and-white Potala Palace once served as the winter home of the Dalai Lama. The palace’s rooms, numbering around 1,000, include the Dalai Lama’s living quarters, as well as murals, chapels and tombs.
Jokhang Temple, founded in the 7th century, attracts pilgrims with its revered golden Buddha statue. The Barkhor, a popular pilgrimage walkway that circles the temple, winds past shops and street markets selling prayer wheels, carpets and other souvenirs. On Lhasa’s outskirts stand 2 monasteries that were both established in the early 15th century: Sera Monastery, where monks hold daily debates, and Ganden Monastery, on the side of a mountain. The Tibet Museum traces the region’s history, displaying religious and cultural artifacts as well as folk art.
The western part of Lhasa is more ethnically Han Chinese in character. It is busy and modern and looks similar to many other Chinese cities, although many of the modern concrete blocks have token Tibetan touches. Much of the infrastructure, such as banks, government offices and shopping malls are to be found there.
Best time to visit Lhasa
The peak visiting period runs from May–Oct, when temperatures are warm. The festivals of Saga Dawa (varies, May/Jun) and Losar/New Year (varies, Feb) draw large numbers of pilgrims to the city. The Shotun festival (Aug) features Tibetan operas, yak racing and Buddhist paintings. The climate is relatively mild year-round, with rainy summers.
