There are many other attractions in Tibet. For example: the lakes. Lake Yamdrok, one of the four holy lakes of the Tibetan people, situated on the way from Lhasa to Gyangtze which is the old route from Lhasa to Shigatse. The bus travels up a 4794M high mountain through rugged muddy road before reaching the lake, the journey is really breathtaking since the bus drives right on the edge of the cliff. But all these will be rewarded when you suddenly find yourself on the top of the mountain and the stunningly beautiful blue lake under the other side of the peak.

More attentions is needed, for the unpleasant climate and the high mountains, you’d better travel in group or have somebody who have the experience here. And I hope that China Tours will give you another different view.
What’s more, there are so many restaurants in Lhasa that it is possible to eat in a different place every night! The food includes Tibetan cuisine, Sichuan cuisine and western style dishes. Some hotel restaurants even provide Nepalese and Indian food. It’s worth noting that Sichuan dishes in Tibet are more expensive than in other parts of China. Tourist restaurants also serve delicacies and almost every hotel has western food. Most of the restaurants can be found clustered around the Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Street, the center of Lhasa City, so that travelers can find places to eat and drink within easy reach.
Tibet is one of minorities of China; people who live here have their own customs about clothes and food, and so do the other aspects. Tibet is located in the southwest of China; the average height of Tibet is thousands of meters. The general religion here is Buddhism, so there are lots of buildings which were built for Buddhism. The most famous one is the Potala Palace. Potala, the former political and religious center of Tibet, is now on the list of Chinese national key protected cultural relics. It is the most valuable storehouse in Tibet. Also, it is a huge treasure house for materials and articles of Tibetan history, religion, culture and arts. The Palace is widely known for the precious sculptures, murals, scripture, Buddha figures, murals, antiques, and religious jewelry treasured up, they are of great cultural and artistic value. In 1994, the Potala Palace was declared the United Nations World Cultural Heritage site. Perched upon the Marpo Ri Hill, 130 meters above the Lhasa valley, it is the greatest monumental structure in Tibet.
