Overall Satisfaction:
"Amazing Tibet"
Great place Lhasa. Tibet was absolutely an amazing place. There are less people but only no end snow peak and grand field. Yaks are everywhere but I don’t want to eat them. We went to the Potala Palace which stands next to athe hill. It’s gorgeous architecture art, There were never endings stairs to go inside the palace, like a puzzle. Time on the way was quite long but not that boring because of the scenery along the road. The Nacuo Lake was pure and blue. Everything looks like from the fairyland.
