Jakhang Temple, the oldest temple in Lhasa, is recognized as the religious center of Tibet. Surrounded by the smell of yak butter, you will be immersed in a spiritual experience of purification along with the other pilgrim in Tibet. Tashilhunpo Monastery, one of the four main monasteries, stretches out on the southern slope of the mountain in Shigatse. Here you can see the world’s largest glided Qamba Buddha bronze statue, refined religious murals and other precious cultural relics.

No choice is better than a free walk in a lively market for you to live like a local. The Barkhor Bazaar is the most famous marketplace in Lhasa. Here you can buy the local handcrafts, try Tibetan cuisines and have a nice talk with the friendly Tibetan people. Out of Lhasa, you can also explore the local culture in the vintage towns like Gyantse or Shigatse.

No matter whom you are, whether a traveler, a photographer, or a Buddhist, you can always find a proper place on this amazing land, Tibet. The stunning sceneries and the optimistic, devoted Tibetan people will not only free you from routine life but also give you ultimate spiritual satisfaction.
