It takes at least a good 2 hours to visit all the palace's rooms, halls, and chapels.

After a Chinese lunch at a local restaurant, proceed to Jokhang Temple. Bustling with worshippers and redolent with mystery, the temple is an unrivalled experience.

The quadrangle of streets surrounding the Jokhang is the Barkhor Lhasa's most interesting pilgrimage circuit. This area of the Old Town is both the spiritual heart of Lhasa and the main commercial district for Tibetans.

In the fresh morning air, you will already be on the way to this lake, driving down a winding and bumpy mountain road. After about 3.5 hours of driving, you will then climb over the snowy pass of Kambala (5030m) and see the dazzling Yamdroktso lying just several hundred meters down the road. In clear weather the water is a fabulous shade of deep turquoise. Far in the distance is the imposing peak of Mt. Nojin Kangtsang (7,191m).

Next proceed to Sera Monastery, nestled at the foot of Wu Du Hill in the northern suburbs of Lhasa. It got its name from the sera flowers (wild rose) that grow wild on the hill. The monastery was built under the supervision of Zongkaba's disciple Xiajia Yixi.
