Things to Do on a Tibet Tour
Tibet is considered to be the real Shangrila, the outlawed land, the holy land of your inmost desires as well as the roof of the world. The Tibet has mountains that are covered with snow as well as grasslands, the dispersed herds of nomads and yak on the plateau, the stunning monasteries as well as unsophisticated smiles, peaceful lake and the transparent blue sky. And these are just some of the many reasons why people who already visited to Tibet always keep on coming back.
The first stop in Tibet for most of the Tibet tours is the Lhasa which is the capital of the Tibet province. Historic and interesting, the holy city of Tibet is situated in a small valley about 3700 meters above the sea level. Jokhang as well as Potala Palace are the must see destinations for the visitors of Lhasa.
The Potala Palance is representation of Tibet. And the people in Tibet see this place as a sacred one. And with its magnificent splendor, without a doubt, Potala Palace would definitely generate a great impression on the people across many countries. As a result, the modest Tibetan pilgrim, who was always existed in the yak hair tent, must see the Potala Palace with remarkable reverence. And it is just so difficult to believe that this 13-storey building which is composed of 999 rooms was built on the steep of a mountain in the 70th century. And touring around the place is like going to a huge warren. It will make you keep going and going. It is so difficult to find the way out, hence, leaving you wandering there all by yourself.
The Jokhang monastery was built in 647, it is considered as the first wood and masonry building that is still existing in Tibet. And it is the center of the Tibetan Buddhism as well as the holy land of the Buddhist followers. And a whole heap of people go to this place every single day because of its beauty. And a great deal of people are starting to crawl going up because it is an elevated place. It seems that, on their journey from their houses, the visitors tend to prostate themselves on the ground after they take two steps and then would repeat the entire process all over again. And a great deal of these visitors would spin the prayer wheels.
There are just a lot of things in Tibet. You will not definitely regret spending your time and money to the place.
