And here is the familiar image - the Potala Palace in Lhasa. It is now quite difficult to photograph, so that the shot did not hit the Chinese posters or gaudy lights in the square before the palace. On this photo the trees mask that lamps. The picture is taken without the "land" because at a huge red banner with characters stretched the bottom of the palace  - we do not need it.

These are Tibetans - probably they are pilgrims from the province. They came to the holy sites - do the Kora around Jokhang, may be to look at the Potala Palace. Grandmother holding prayer , and aldruml three - the rosary.

We have visited two monasteries around Lhasa - Drepung and Sera. And I'v forgot which one is shown here! They are similar in principle and the nature around them is the same. Drepung should be more. In general, this is or Drepung or sulfur. A man sitting on the right - he is asking for money, I suppose. He is not a monk.

Tibet is a very high place. And the highest mountains in the world - the Himalayas - located near Tibet.

Attention!  The level of Oxygen in Tibetan atmosphere is only 70% of norm!

Check the health before your travel to Tibet and plan the time for acclimatization somewhere in Lhasa before to go higher.

Photos about the track and other feats in the Himalayas can be seen here:
