My tour from Lhasa to Nepal border
12 days in Tibet. Itinerary: arrival from Kathmandu to Lhasa, 5 days in Lhasa to visit the most famous sights and acclimate, then transfer by jeep in Gyangtse, Shigatse, then Sakyu - here I liked the best, and then Xegar (New Tingri), moving through the Himalayan range and overnight in Zhangmu - town beside the Nepal border. Very interesting, very authentic, beautiful and remembered for a lifetime. I made a lot of pictures. That's Tibet five years ago.

Lhasa airport

Arrived in Lhasa airport (about 90 km from Lhasa), the formalities - discharged from the airport on the lists, check - whether permission to visit Tibet. We go to Lhasa. The road runs along the Tsangpo River bank. The weather a bit gloomy - it is the end of August, all just dries up after monsoon.

Here's my room in Dhoodgu hotel - it is 2-3* hotel in national style. The room called "Tibetan Suite". It is such a beautiful one. This is only the left half of the room. The right half has a chair, table, chests, tricuspid wardrobe, coffee-tea set and a bathroom with toilet. The hotel is very correct, immediately adjusts to the Tibetan way.

The hotel is located in the center of the Tibetan quarter of Lhasa. Coming out of the hotel, you immediately found the main square with the Jokhang Temple. This temple is a shrine for Tibetans. Hundreds of pilgrims constantly go around the temple and do prostrations (crawl on his belly and hands in a certain way).

Lhasa today - it's two large district. One became a typical Chinese city - with avenues, sidewalks, markets, consumer goods, and office buildings. The second area - "Tibetan Quarter" - is no Chinese Tibet, Tibet is almost true - with painted stone houses, narrow streets, people are dressed in the national dress. During the quarter immediately are Tibetan mountains, without settlements.
