Potala Palace reviews
Definitely worth climbing all those stairs , the view from the top of the palace is amazing. lots of tourists in line to get the ticket, try to go early in the morning. more »
Beautiful. Gorgeous views. Just take your time and have water with you. Altitude medication was a must for me. A must see. more »
This place is really cool. No trip to Tibet would be complete without a visit. I spent an entire day walking around it, photographing it during the day and night. And another morning visiting the inside with my guided tour. It's best if your tour group can get there as early as possible. We were literally the first group in the door, and were able to see the palace and get a bunch of pictures with no crowds.
A must see sightseeing when in Lhasa Tibet. Everything is real, you can feel that you can touch the history when you come inside. When enter the main palace, time is limited at 1 hour so it is recommended to go fast and all questions can leave behind. Some restrictions to remember: no water, passport needed, ticket (of course), no photos, AM visiting is better than afternoon time.
