The town of NaQu, before this there is a short distance traffic jam lasted for hours.
A pretty lake area, hike up a small hill early morning to catch the sunrise.
This hotel near the lake is decent and popular.
Our hostel in Lasa, it's pretty decent, comfy and popular.
This is a pretty big and modern city, as I have unrealistic expectation of the city being more ancient with an air of mystery and nature.
This is an important temple of the Tibetan Gelu sect and very famous. The interior is pretty cramp given the size and crowd.
It's worthwhile to visit if you hire a guide and interested with the history, and photography of the interior and statues are not allowed.
The Tibetan kitchen is probably overpriced and the food isn't good. The interior is pretty nice though.
Having a local breakfast at KFC at 9am. Porridge, soy bean and fried fritter.
Business hour: 09:00 - 23:00
Potala is quite an amazing building and definitely a must visit. The exterior looks very good, and you could took photo of it without paying for entrance fee.
The interior is pretty cramp and gloomy like a temple, with golden pagoda of previous Dalai llama and statues of gods. Again, a tour guide is recommended to get a meaningful grasp of the history and types of statues.
Slightly pricier, food quality are below average. Coffee is acceptable, and cheese pizza is good. Pasta and sandwich are not good.
A smaller temple where you can watch monks perform a ritual of debating about Buddha's teachings.
We crave for a Cantonese meal in Tibet. The soup and vegetables is pretty good, but glazed pork (Char Siew) is a big disappointment.
Night view of Potala and the musical fountain, probably the best night event at the city.
Today we start our venture from Tibet to Eastern side, going to Pagsum Lake. The scenery is pretty snowy as we pass by Mila Mountain Pass, but couldn't see much due to heavy fog.
This is a beautiful lake with a small island with a temple on it. Sadly weather is not perfect.
The default package only allowed a small part of the place to be explored, which would take less than an hour. We heard of a hiking tour in the introduction video, where it seems more interesting.
There is a stream of river, a dam, field of yellow flowers (June) and plenty of black piggies along the way before reaching the entrance.
This hotel is decent and nice. The breakfast is one of the better ones by Tibetan hotel standard.
Having hotpot chicken again, it's pretty good, our guide claim this place is quite famous.
Visited a village next to National Road 318 before reaching BoMe. The village is very beautiful.
A pretty resort hotel near the lake, with nice service and good food. The surrounding is very beautiful as well.
Nice fish and Cantonese meals are served here, pretty good. Don't order the stream egg with red herbs.
