Bakhor, also named as Baghor, is the oldest street in Lhasa. In the past, it was only a circumambulation circuit, "a saint road " in the eyes of Tibetan. Now it's also a shopping center with nation characteristics. It's an old district with colorful Tibetan features. Tibetan houses line the street, and the ground is paved with man-made flagstones, preserving the ancient look.
Namtso Lake is the second largest salt water lake in China. It is about 4,718 meters above the sea level, so its name means “the sky lake” in Tibetan language. The shape of it is like a rectangle, which is more than 70 kilometers (about 43 miles) long and more than 30 kilometers wide (about 19 miles). It covers an area of 1920 square kilometers, making it the highest large lake.
Lhasa is a holy city for Tibetan Buddhism. You can find many temples and monasteries in the city like Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery, Jokhang Temple and more. One of the most famous is Potala Palace and you can find countless precious Tibetan treasures here. In 1994, Potala Palace was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
Also Lhasa has a beautiful Plateau scenery, the blue lakes, high snow mountains and kind local people. So much here to see, so much here to experience! I'm you will be purified when you come to this holy city.
