Built by the Fifth Dalai Lama in the late 17th century, the massive Potala Palace is an unmistakable feature of the Lhasa skyline. This spectacular construction is a magnet for pilgrims and tourists alike. Its magnificent exterior houses decorated chapels, assembly halls and a labyrinth of winding passageways as well as great collections of Tibetan art, costumes, jewels, religious texts and the tombs of Dalai Lama's past.

Ascend to the "roof of the world" by train and acclimate gradually to the high altitude as the landscape changes right outside your window as you ascend up into the mountainous Tibetan Plateau. Once there, you'll explore Lhasa's must-see sights including the imposing Potala Palace that stands over the city and the bustling markets and monasteries in and around Tibet's storied capital.
