Elevated 3,660 meters and lying in the center of the Tibetan Plateau, Lhasa is one of the highest cities in the world, with its surrounding mountains rising to 5,60 0 meters.

The city features many culturally significant Tibetan Buddhist sites, such as the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple and Norbulingka Palace – each listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

From July to September, tourists flock to the region for both its scenery and history.
