Things to Do on a Tibet Tour
Tibet is referred to as the real Shangrila, the banned land, the holy land of your deepest desires as well as the roof of the world. The Tibet has mountains that are covered with snow as well as grasslands, the dispersed herds of nomads and yak on the plateau, the stunning monasteries as well as unsophisticated smiles, peaceful lake and the transparent blue sky. These are just few of the many reasons why the visitors of Tibet most of the time, find themselves always coming back to the place.
And the first stop that a whole heap of Tibet tours would always first go to is Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet province. Interesting and historic, the Lhasa, a holy city, lies in a minute valley that is approximately 3700 meters above the seal level. And if you go to Lhasa, the top two places that you should go there are JOkhang as well as Potala Palace.
The representation of Tibet is the Potala Palace. And this place is considered sacred by the people living in Tibet. With its grandiose splendor, the Potala Palace would certainly create a positive impression to the people across the globe. And because of this, the humbler Tibet pilgrim, which has always resided in the yak hair tent, must see the Potala Palace with high respect. And it is so amazing to know that this building is composed of 13 floors with 999 rooms and was built on the mountain steep in the 70th century. And touring around the place is like going to a huge warren. It will make you keep going and going. It is so difficult to find the way out, hence, leaving you wandering there all by yourself.
The Jokhang monastery was built in 647, it is considered as the first wood and masonry building that is still existing in Tibet. It is actually the core of the Tibetan Buddhism as well as the holy land for the Tibetan followers. And a whole heap of people go to this place every single day because of its beauty. And a great deal of people are starting to crawl going up because it is an elevated place. It would seem that on their way going to the place from their houses, the pilgrims have a tendency to prostate themselves on the ground the moment they have walked to steps and would do it over and over again. A lot of them are also spinning the prayer wheels.
Without a doubt, you will be able to discover a lot of remarkable things in Tibet. Your tour in Tibet will surely be worth it and your money and time will not be put to waste.
