The capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region, Lhasa possesses a wealth of Tibetan Buddhist sites of historical and cultural importance. Once the winter retreat of the Dalai Lama, the city today can be divided into east and west, with the former showing a strong Tibetan influence, and the latter a distinctly Han Chinese character. The eastern side contains most of the attractions in Lhasa, including temples, traditional markets, and museums, with each allowing visitors to better understand Tibetan culture and history. The narrow, winding streets of the district house a number of hidden treasures, with small, atmospheric shrines filled with pilgrims paying their respects, and scented with the aroma of incense burning throughout the day. Lhasa is in Tibet. Take a look at our China holiday planner to refine the details of your trip to Lhasa.
