Jokhang Monastery
The Jokhang Monastery is the final destination for pilgrims. A statue of the 12-year-old Sakyamuni, who lived in India in the fifth century BC, and who was the creator of Buddhism, is collected in the monastery. This is the reason why Buddhists consider Lhasa a Sacred Land.
Barkhor Street
Located near the Jokhang Monastery, the Barkhor Street was only a place for Buddhists to do a religious circumambulation in ancient times. Nowadays, tourists can buy exquisite souvenirs on the street, such as handicrafts, costumes, tea, prayer wheels and Tibetan incense.
Tips for Visiting Potala Palace
1. The number of visitors to the palace is strictly limited to 2,300 per day. Visitors can only visit during the time specified on the admission ticket.
2. Admission tickets to visit the Potala Palace are sold out almost every day, so it is strongly recommended to book your tickets several days in advance.
3. There are many steps at the Potala Palace, so it’s best to take it slowly to avoid possible altitude discomfort.
4. Visitors should respect the rules while visiting. Do not wear hats, wear revealing clothes or step on thresholds as these actions violate local customs.
5. Photography and the taking of videos are forbidden inside the Potala Palace.
6. A security search will take place at the entrance to the palace. Explosives, flammables, knives, lighters and even water bottles are not allowed inside the Potala Palace.

Two or three people will be travelling from Pakistan to Hong Kong and from there to China and Tibet.

 EBC-Germany-0014

Und zu guter Letzt, besuchten wir den Everest Base Camp (Tibet Seite) am 1. Mai 2016.

Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis und wundervolle Erfahrung, vor allem Everest für das erste Mal in Sunrise.

EBC ist über mehr als 3000 Meter hoch. Wir sind nicht Kletterer noch Bergsteiger, mit Alter über 40 Jahren und von der Tropic Land.

Mit allen die perfekte Kombination, die Höhenlage Krankheit ist wirklich ein großes Problem für uns ... also da 6 Monat vor der Reise, die wir machen einige auszuführen als Zubereitungen wie Schwimmen, treatmill, Joggen und Yoga.
Und es funktioniert!!

Wir teilen konnten einige Tipps :
- wir kamen Anfang Mai und es war ca. -3 Grad Celsius am Morgen und 14 in der Nacht am EBC ...

- Aufenthalt im Zelt am EBC, denn es ist im Besitz der Tibetan Haben.
Die Tibetan Leute sind schön, warm, vertrauten und kindhearted. Von dort haben Sie Tiefe Erfahrung der lokalen.

- machen Sie sich keine Sorgen, wenn Sie nicht über die richtige Schlafsack, weil das Zelt anbieten, da viele Decke weil man braucht.

- sie bieten auch die Yak Decke, und es ist sehr warm.

- wenn wahrscheinliche, bringen Sie nur Dinge, die Sie EBC auf dem kleinen Tasche. Da Sie nur eine Nacht dort.

- Essen auf Magenschmerzen richtig zu vermeiden.

- wenn man nicht essen kann lokalen Essen, bringen Sie einige High Energy Snack und heiße Schokolade.

- die Aussicht auf dem Weg zu EBC wirklich spektakulär. Bereiten Sie sich also die Batterie Ihrer Kamera. Bringen Sie extra, wenn hierherkommen. auch Ihre Ausdauer und bereiten Sie sich darauf vor (machen Sie sich nicht einschlafen).

Für uns ... wir glauben nun, dass sehen Everest ist wahrscheinliche, selbst wenn Sie nicht ein Kletterer oder Mountaineer ...

Zu dieser Zeit, denn wir stehen in front of the North Face mit Gigantischen Everest danken wir dem Herrn Jesus und schließlich konnten wir sagen "Everest ... wir sehen Sie!"

Also, wenn man kann sehen, dass es ... Gehen Sie!

 Wir sind eine Gruppe von vier erfahrene Reisende und äußerst zufrieden mit www.Reisenachtibet.com und das Paket sie boten von Lhasa zu EBC und zurückkehren.

Das Paket war ausgewogen mit der direkt eingeben von Freizeit in Lhasa und so, dass wir die Erkundung der Stadt auf eigene Faust und mit geführte Ausflüge zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten.
Sehr professionelle Organisation.
