Lhasa River
Best time to go: From July to Auguest

It is the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region. Because it is bathed in brilliant sunlight, it is often called the City of Sun. Lhasa has moderate temperatures in summer, and although winters can be very cold, they are also sunny and dry.

Lhasa, the heart and soul of Tibet and an object of devout pilgrimage, is still a city of wonders. The Potala, a vast white and ochre fortress, dominates the Lhasa skyline. Potala Palace,the landmark of Lhasa. The Jokhang temple, 2km (1.2mi) to the east, is the spiritual heart of the city. Barkhore Street is full of fun and surprise. The medieval push and shove of crowds, the street performers, the stalls hawking everything from prayer flags to jewel-encrusted yak skulls, and the devout tapping their foreheads to the ground at every step is an exotic brew that few newcomers can resist.
