I have been thinking about the best time to go to Tibet. When will it be? Most people on the Internet choose to enter Tibet in July and August, while I choose to go in June. The reason why I choose to go to Tibet in June is to avoid the crowds and avoid the rainy season, so as to ensure the smooth passage! In fact, June is the most beautiful and safe time to visit Tibet. Blue sky and white clouds are the most sincere greetings in June! So what are the must-see places to visit in Tibet? How to arrange the schedule? Is there anything special need to attention? These are the problems I faced before I set out for Tibet.
I collected some information about traveling in Tibet and got to know Great Tibet Tour, a Tibet travel Agency of on the Internet. I consulted and communicated with them a lot, and got some preliminary understanding of Tibet. Never seen, but she is exquisite, caring service make me to give her thumb up. Finally, I choose their group tour package and decide to go to Tibet by train.
This is one of the most beautiful train routes. I fell in love with Tibet before I arrived in Lhasa. All passengers sit on this train line the first time are picked up their mobile phones to the window to shot the scenery along the way. There are also photographers in the train carriage distance shooting. We only want to freeze the most beautiful moment!
Lhasa is the capital of Tibet autonomous region and the political, economic, cultural and religious center of Tibet. It is one of the highest cities in the world, and people say it is the city of sunlight. The simplest reason is that at 3,658 meters above sea level, the air is thin, the moisture content is low, but there is no dust. On a clear day, the sun is bright. Looking at the snow peaks in the distance, the sky is clear and blue. In Lhasa at June, the sky is blue with clear water and the shade of green trees is thick. Under the sunshine, I look up at the clear blue sky and the flowing white clouds. I do nothing just in a daze and feel satisfied.
Potala palace, the symbol of Tibet, is the existing complete palace castle architectural complex in Tibet, known as one of the world’s top ten earth buildings. Entering the Potala palace is a dream. Potala palace has a distinct Tibetan style and its architectural achievements have attracted worldwide attention. In order to better protect the Potala palace, the daily flow of tourists is limited to relieve the pressure on the Potala palace. Potala palace is divided into the White House and the red palace. The White House, with its white outer wall, is the place where Lamas live and conduct political activities. Because the sun shines all day long here, it called the sunlight hall. The red palace is located in the center of the top of the Potala palace. After the death of the monks from the fifth (except the sixth), the pagoda is enshrined in the red palace of the Potala palace. The potala palace is built on a hill with overlapping buildings. It is a mammoth and magnificent palace, which is really a human miracle and a visual treasure. It is a palace of art.
Standing at the top of the Potala palace, overlooking the whole city of Lhasa, the whole city of Lhasa is covered with new buildings hidden in green trees. Prayer flags and mulberry smoke are flying in the Barkor Street
There are many angles to appreciate the Potala palace, but in the snow area, the Potala palace in front of you is even more magnificent and impressive! It’s the greatness and wisdom of ancient architects more than 300 years ago. Living in the Potala palace, I am the King in the snow area! This shows the Potala palace’s status. Potala palace is still a place people yearn for. Come to Lhasa, Potala palace is a place you are bound to visit, perhaps because of its fame, perhaps because of its story.
When I came to Lhasa, I knew that “Jokhang temple came before Lhasa city”.
Jokhang Temple is the center of Lhasa people’s life. Everything they do revolve around it. The Barkhor Street around Jokhang temple is called “Lhasa”, which means “Buddha land”.
Chanting, mumbling and blue sky white clouds, red house white tile, the beautiful looks untrue. Faith is the only thing here. The piety on people’s faces is the most real reflection of Jokhang temple. If you go to Lhasa and don’t go to Jokhang temple, you haven’t been to Lhasa.
Jokhang temple, regarded as the birthplace of countless Tibetans, is one of the most brilliant Tubo period buildings in Tibet. Here, you can be moved and admired by the Tibetan people’s faith from the bottom of your heart.
The most stylish street is Barkhor Street. It’s famous in Lhasa and all over the world. It is a circular street built around the Jokhang temple. More than 1,300 years of Lhasa’s history are condensed into this less than 2 kilometers long Old Street. If Jokhang temple is the heart of Lhasa, Barkhor Street is the aorta connecting the heart.
