Dies ist das wichtigste in Lhasa, wenn nicht ein verschwendetem Reise gemacht haben, oder auch beim nächsten Mal wieder zu sehen. Nehmen Sie es langsam, da gibt es viele Treppen und Dinge zu sehen sind.


Tipps: Wenn Sie in Lhasa sind, gehen Sie zum Potala Palast an ihrem letzten Tag in Lhasa. Erstens, es gibt viele Treppen steigen, also wenn Sie noch zum Eingewöhnen haben, werden Sie wahrscheinlich leiden im Aufstieg. Zweitens, wenn Sie die Hauptattraktion erst einmal sehen, die anderen Kloster/Palace werden können dem Vergleich nicht standhalten. Drittens kommen Sie wieder in den Abend nach Sonnenuntergang zu nehmen Sie den nächtlichen Blick auf dieses Hotel.

Ticket ist eine Postkarte, die man nach Hause schicken. angebracht ist ein 80Cent Briefmarke, nur ganz oben auf der Rest zurück nach Hause zu schicken.

Potala Palast wurde im 7. Jahrhundert erbaut und war der heutige Größe im 17. Jahrhundert erweitert. Es liegt ca. 114m m hoch, mit 13 Etagen des Wohnbereichs, Tempel, Beerdigung stupas und monk Schlafräume. Wie von Anfang 2014, es gibt ca. 70 seltsame monk dort lebenden, er es mehr als eine Touristenattraktion als einen funktionellen Palace/Kloster. Mein Reiseführer ist sehr nett. Wir haben eine schöne Zeit verbracht. Das ist der Grund, warum wir in Lhasa.

Hello Nancy,
I really enjoy the my Tibet tour. First when I started looking for a travel agency in Tibet it was hard because I did not know which one to choose. I started emailing you and asking my thousand questions and you were very nice and answer to all my questions patiently.  
I would definitely recommend your company. The guy at the hotel in Lhasa was very nice with us. He helped me a lot when my bank block my debit card and l was not able the withdraw money. He went with me to find a place where I can do international phone call to my bank in Canada. Our guide Djajie was a very good guide, vary helpful, he said to us a lot of information but because English is not my first language, so I did not remember all the information he told us about Tibet.
The driver was very nice, always happy and singing . Too bad he was not speaking English so we were not able to communicate with him without the guide.I would appreciate sometime they eat with us at same table. they always eat at a separate table. Tibetans were nice with us, they looked at us because we were tourists but they were always smiling to us and saying HeIIo. They wanted to take pictures with us, especially with the Australian light brown long hair.
All hotel are well located in the city. For picture, I will send you more than you asked because I like to take pictures. I am the only one in the tour who have a picture of the group.  Thanks!

Dear Amy,

THANK YOU very, very, much for all your help and assistance for our Tibet tour. Without you I may not have managed without more tears. The tour was an amazing adventure to say the least and a trip neither Grace nor I will ever forget. Lobsang was the BEST. thank you for him too. He went out of his way to make sure we were all happy. A hard group to please! He is such a beautiful person. I hope you meet him one day. I seem to dream of Tibet every night. THANK YOU Amy also for the contacts places to go in Chengdu. A beautiful experience. Despite the typhoon in Hong Kong we did eventually get home safely. Lots of love to you : ) : )

Kind Regards, Berni & Grace

Wenn Sie Reisennachtibet.de Reiseleiter Pincuo mit mit, da man hier so viel Geschichte und lernen Sie abdecken kann besuchen, die Sie nicht alleine unterwegs zu erkunden. Der Palast wurde zuerst in 641 erbaut und umgebaut von Fifth Dalai Lama im 17. Jahrhundert, ist ein wahres Modell der tibetanischen Architektur mit 13 Etagen über 1.000 Zimmer. Sie sehen einige der Gräber der vergangenen Dalai Lama und viele Kammern. Der Aufstieg zum Palace ist unglaublich und landschaftlich schön, aber etwas anstrengend wegen der hohen Höhenlage. Es werden ca. 2-3 Stunden zum erkunden der gesamten Palace Complex. Verpassen Sie nicht das dies eine einmalige Gelegenheit, Potala Palast wenn Sie je Lhasa besuchen!

Hello Alex,  

I am sorry that it took me so long to give you a feedback, I was pretty busy the recent days weeks and hope you can understand that.  
Let's come to the feedback.
Tour guide: The tour guide (Ms. Qimei) was excellent! Her English speaking ability was very good. Additionally, she was welcoming, friendly and could score with profound knowledge about culture, history and environment.
Driver: The driver was all the time friendly and drove according to the rules. we all felt very safe during the trip.
Hotels: The hotels were also well chosen. The breakfast matched the western standard.
Vehicle: The vehicle was overall very comfortable.  
Additional comment: Overall, I was very happy with the tour. The only thing, I would have wished for is to have had a detailed itinerary beforehand. Sometimes I was not sure, how exactly the next day was planned.  
Best regards, Nweth Sureshkumar
