Photo of Potala Palace in Lhasa Tibet

Photo of Potala Palace in Lhasa Tibet

XXX Large Size

Here is a very beautiful photo of the Potala Palace located in Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Region, China. It is the former residence of the Dalai Lama until he fled the uprising in 1959.

Nowadays it is somewhat difficult to get to Tibet as a tourist but it is not impossible. Such a trip involves obtaining both a China visa and an internal tourist visa. Once in Lhasa, travelers must hire an official tour guide to see this spectacular palace. Then, once inside Potala Palace, tourists are allowed a one hour time limit. Exceeding that limit will mean a huge fine and a sanction against the tour guide.
