Lhasa, TibetTranslated literally as ‘Place of the Gods’ and situated at an altitude of almost 12,000 feet in the Himalayas, Lhasa is the traditional capital of Tibet and its holiest city. Lhasa is also the Buddhist seat of the revered Dalai Lama (now exiled in Dharamsala, India) and home to the awe-inspiring Potala and Norbulingka Palaces. Stay at the House of Shambhala, a classic Tibetan courtyard house that is now a boutique hotel. Visit an ancient monastery; go into the private chambers of one of Lhasa’s top lamas for a personal blessing and a chat about the simple, spiritual life of a Buddhist monk.
