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

Attraction

Quote:
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.
