Lhasa Visit

We’ll visit Potala Palace, Jokhang temple and Barkhor Street.
Potala Palace , the winter palace of the Dalai Lama dominates the skyline of Lhassa atop the crest of Marpo Ri hill, the seventh-century Potala is considered Lhasa’s holiest destination for a pilgrimage. Going up the hill, a stone path leads to the 14-story, 1,000-room. Each day, thousands of pilgrims give the prayer wheels a clockwise spin as they make their way to the entrance.
The Jokhang Temple is the home of the statutes of the revered Buddha, Shakyamuni. While all Buddhist statues are adorned with colorful brocade, pearls, turquoise, coral, and silver, solid gold bowls of holy water rest before Shakyamuni as well as offerings of Yuan (money) and khatas (scarves) left by pilgrims.

Lhasa of Drak Yerpa Caves & Yamdrok Lake

Drak Yerpa cave was built on a hillside with more than 80 meditation caves. Drak Yerpa is described as the “life tree” or spiritual axis of Lhasa. The site had a powerful spiritual heritage was visited by Songsten Gampo, Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsoygel, Padampa Sanggye, and Asisha. It was the home of some hermits, monks, and nuns. Tucci in 1949 describes it as follows: “Yerpa appeared suddenly before my eyes as a bend in the road, a cascade of small white buildings along steep, overgrown cliffs. You would think you weren’t in Tibet. Giant junipers and tufts of rhododendron topped a thick tangle of undergrowth, brushwood and grass victoriously fighting the hard barrenness of rocks. The cliffs were riddled with burrows and caves, some of which were so high up on an abrupt hill that it would have been risky to climb them.” For those with a particular interest in Tibetan Buddhism, Drak Yerpa hermitage is one of the holiest cave retreats in the Ü Region. Many ascetics have sojourned here and contributed to the area’s sanctity. The site is peaceful and has stunning views.

In the afternoon we will explore the Yamdrok Lake which is one of four holy lakes, the other three are Lhamo La-tso Lake, Namtso Lake and Manasarovar Lake. It is revered as a talisman and is said to be part of the life-spirit of the Tibetan nation. If the largest lake in southern Tibet were to dry, then Tibet would no longer be habitable. The lake has nine islands, of which one houses the famous Samding Monastery. This monastery is interesting, as is the only Tibetan monastery headed by a female re-incarnation. Since it is not a nunnery, its female abbot heads a community of about thirty monks.
