Life Affirming Tibet

An April 2001 trip to Lhasa by bjwhitaker

Quote: Besides the incredible and splendid scenery, the native Tibetan people were the most intriguing part of this trip.

Potala Palace


Visiting the Potala Palace was overwhelming cultural experience. Moreso than any place I've ever visited before, I was never so impressed with the level of detailed craftsmanship that covered this place from ceiling to floor. As you walk through this incredible religious fortress, one quickly gets a sense of the awesome spiritual force that drives Tibetans to be so dedicated to this place. The view from the top is breathtaking.
