Take your time to visit the summer palaces of the Dalai Lamas. Located in a nicely kept, big park it is a wonderful diversion fromn the hustle and bustle in Lhasa itself.

One or two really beautiful buildings formerly used by the Dali Lama, this is now a (relatively) quiet park with commercial amenities. Not really an outstanding historic site.

The Norbulingka is a pleasant attraction. The beautiful trees and long walks are excellent. One can see the palaces inhabited by the Dalai Lamas of the past. It reminded me of scenes from the movie KunDun

It is quite interesting to visit. Has many historical rooms to visit in the palace, private rooms of the Dalai Lama. Not as impressive as the monasteries or the Potala. At the entrance you can rent an electric car to do the visit, since it...More
