Rama Kharpo is a small family style hotel in Lhasa (associated with Tibet Ctrip Travel Service), one of six hotels awarded a gold star rating. It was set up, and is owned and operated by a young Tibetan book More lover with a vision to create quality accommodations and facilities to fit the taste of travelers interested in culture and travel in style. The interior of each room is designed in a simple, minimalist Tibetan style with natural wood floors, furniture, and tasteful decorations.
