Train or extra day in lhasa ?

by james1973bruce

All is the train worth taking the 24 hours to lhasa - it does look cool.. or is it really not worth it.. cumfort - hastle factor etc.. i can get 1 extra day in lhasa meaning 2.5 days or 1.5 in lhasa and take the train..

personnaly i really fancy the train but not sure if it is worth it..

More time in Lhasa is better spent than being on a train unless you are train buff (Someone who likes trains).

It is a "six of one, half a dozen of the other", type of question. Better to have an extra day in Lhasa, but the train is worth it, if for no other reason that it gives you a real sense of distance. Have to agree with flyer though, a day and a half is not enough time in Lhasa.

So is it still worth me going ? With limited time

Re: Train or extra day in lhasa ?

by Odinnthor

Yes. Limited time is better than no time in Lhasa.

Re: Train or extra day in lhasa ?

by earthflyer

Spend the extra day in Lhasa.

Re: Train or extra day in lhasa ?

I would not recommend going to Lhasa unless you're going to spend at least 3 full days there.
It costs a lot in terms of time, effort and money (TTB permit and transport) to get there. Anything less than 3 full days doesn't seem to be worth it.
And consider what if you react badly to the altitude? You'll be spending all that money just to go there to feel sick and puke!

Travel Tips for Lhasa

INTERNET CAFE AT SNOWLANDS HOTEL

by mavl

snowlands hotel along mentsikhang lam is just around the corner from the barkhor. just inside its gate (on the left side after the reception area) is an internet cafe with good rates (Y5/hr) and a friendly and accommodating proprietor named nga. he'll gladly make sure you get everything you'll need to go online. they are open until very late at night. it was always great to see different kinds of people from all over the world hunched over the computers inside this internet cafe. when passing by (i wasn't peeking!), you'll just be able to notice that practically everone is logged onto yahoo - thing is, each computer has the yahoo homepage in a different language! amazing!

i just found this so cool. here we are at the top of the world and everybody is reporting back to their corner of the globe in their respective languages - and i'm sure we're all saying the same thing, tibet is awesome!

Gandan Monastery perches on...

by ErnieGal

Gandan Monastery perches on the top of Mount Wanrigu, 60 kms east of Lhasa, at an altitude of 3800m. It was founded in 1409 by Tsong Khapa, the originator of the Gelukpa, or Yellow Hat, sect. As the abbot of Gandan, Tsong Khapa preached Buddhism and wrote many books here. Gandan covers an enormous area, as building continued for generations. It is one of the three principle Gelukpa monasteries in the Lhasa district. Gandan consists of many temples and other buildings. The 'Cuoqin Vihara' has 108 pillars and is large enough to house 3500 monks at one time. It contains the beautiful and skillfully carved bronze statues of maitreya and Tsong Khapa. The throne of Tsong Khapa plus his collection of Tibetan status can also be found there. The 'Chituokhan Buddhist Temple' is one of the earliest buildings of Gandan, and this is where Tsong Khapa and successive Gandan abbots lived. The7th Dalai Lama added an ornate golden pinnacle to the building. The temple contains many Buddhist Sutras, ancient coeds and other personal belongings of Tsong Khapa. The 'Yanbajian Hall' is a large four-storey building with 72 pillars. Building began in 1409' and finished in 1416. A golden pinnacle was added to the hall in 1610 by the 4th Panchen Lama. The outside garden contains the stupas of successive abbots. Inside the hall is a suit of armour belonging to Chinese Emperor Qian Long, who presented it to Gandan in 1757. It is one of Gandan's highly-prized treasures. The suit bears an inscription, written in Han, Manchu, Mongol and Tibetan, showing the Qing Emperor's respect of the Buddha. 'Shidoukhan Palace' contains the stupa of Tsong Khapa, and marks the place where he hied in October 251419. The following year Dama Rergin, a disciple of Tsong Khapa, built a silver stupa in his honour. In later years, the 13th Dalai Lama rebuilt this stupa in gold. Gandan is also listed as one of Tibet's cultural relics, under the Special funds are now provided by the state for its reconstruction.

Lhasa Tip

by titti

Mt. Kailash I was thinking to plan a new trip to Tibet in order to reach sacred Mt. Kailash. This time I would have gone with Gigi, but he passed away few months ago, climbing a low mountain near to Bergamo. Now, I don’t know if and whenever I’ll go to Tibet again. If any of you is going to Mt. Kailash, please light a butter lamp for Gigi’s soul. He could be walking somewhere round the mountain.

Always come prepared

by tompt

This monk shows how to be prepared for everything. He wears a cloth in front of his mouth and nose, probably against infections or the polution of the city.
In his left hand he holds a wreath, counting his prayers on it, and an umbrella in a handy bag. His right hand is turning his prayerwheel while he walks the Nangkhor, a pilgrim route inside the Jokhang.

More on the prayerwheel in the local custom tips at our Tibet page.

muslim quarter

by tompt

Lhasa has next to the chinese and tibetan quarter also a small muslim quarter.
It is located east of the Jokhang and the Mosque is the centre of it.

The Mosque covered was first built in 1716. After 1793 it was restored and expanded to cover an area of 1,300 square meters.
And it looks like there is some restoration going on in 2004 (see the picture)
