Tibet Attractions

Lhasa TempleTibet, known as “the Roof of the World”, remained unknown to the world until the beginning of the
20th century. The open country without any worldly noise, the clear and high sky like having been
washed, the yonder snow-covered mountains and peaks lofty and awesome, mirrored still like
lowered humble heads in the boundless and unfathomable lake at their feet.
Tibetan Buddhism inhabits most Tibetans’ hearts. Thus, a great deal of splendid monasteries,
vivid murals and sculptures, and solemn stupas were built to worship the unparalleled Buddha.
Tibet is abundant in cultural and historical relics which can be explored to develop tourism. Some
key cultural relics are under state-level protection, such as the Potala Palace, the Jokhang Temple,
Norbulingka Palace, Ganden, Drepung and Sera monasteries, Octagons Streets, Guge Castle,
the Tombs of the Ancient Kings, Sakya Monastery and Tashilunpo Monastery. Of which, the Potala
Palace is listed in the World's Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO.

Famous for peculiar geological features, majestic natural scenery, mysterious and exotic religious culture and local ethnic customs, Tibet has
become the Holy Land for numerous Chinese and overseas tourists, mountain explorers and scientific surveyors. Generally the period from
March the beginning of November is the best time to visit Tibet, the ancient buildings stand side by side with modern buildings against the
breeze wind, warm sunlight, blue sky, white clouds, tall poplars, stroking willows, green grasslands, icy peaks and snowy hills.
