Potala Palace
Located in Lhasa City of the Tibet Autonomous Region, and first constructed in the 7th century, the Potala Palace is the most comprehensive art treasure house of cultural relics in Tibetan area of China.

Towering upon the Moburi Mountain in the Lhasa valley, the Palace is world renowned for its magnificence and exquisiteness. A serpentine stairway up the mountainside leads to the palace buildings on a height of 3,700 meters above sea level. Its stone-and-wood main building has 13 stories, measuring 110 meters in elevation.
Wishing Well
The cost of making a trip to Nam Co Lake in
the Tibet Autonomous Region was high, not fiscally but physically. The altitude of the glamorous spot is 4,718 meters above sea level. My companions and I all suffered from altitude sickness, which had gradually drained the excitements from us before we got there.

Mani stones, usually with an ox horn on the top, meant to represent prayers, can be found all around the banks of Nam Co.

Heavenly Kingdom
Tibet is among the few pure, clean lands left untouched in the whole world, and a place people dream of. Tibet should therefore make good use of its own advantages, and the opportunity of the country’s western development campaign, to promote its tourism industry.
