It is the closest place to heaven, a place of pilgrimage, a place that many people dream of going to. Only after I went there did I know that it was actually just the heaven of the eyes, but the hell of the body, or only after enduring the suffering of the hell of the body can I cherish the heavenly blue sky and the shocking natural scenery like an unforgettable fairyland. The determination and perseverance of the pilgrims who make the long journey to the Jokhang Temple and circle the holy Lake Namtso for several months have shocked a large number of visitors. Seeing many cyclists and hikers on the endless highway, in addition to producing respect, it can not help but increase their courage to face life. There are magical people living in the magical land, doing magical things, and it has become a crazy paradise that releases self-energy in the eyes of people in the ordinary world, which is yearnful but hard to reach. It is a treasure given to mankind by God, a place that must be experienced once in life, and a place that can change the outlook on life. I use the actual travel experience and see to know the guide to write out in the form of notes, and attach the relevant pictures, I hope to be helpful to you.

A lot of people outside the door can feel it themselves. Sera Temple inside the debate more, there are one-to-one, two, three, Jokhang Temple only one-to-one, debate is the interview in the Tibetan Buddhism exam, students in the Bible read thoroughly after the debate exam can be the temple management position. Drepung Monastery is the largest area, the centrifuge is far away, to play dozens of dollars, when the sun Buddha will be held there, the landform and climate conditions lead to the outdoor natural Buddha statue, so the use of sun Buddha this way instead, there are several big sun Buddha festival a year is very grand, Drepung Monastery is one of them.

On the road through the Mira Pass, 5013 above sea level, the snow is very beautiful when it does not melt, the main pillar will look good when the summer current is large, otherwise there is no feeling, although the tea Horse Road is very famous but there is nothing to look at compared to other attractions. The Peach Blossom Festival was held in Peach Blossom Valley on March 28, which was very lively with armed police to maintain order. Peach Blossom Valley is a wild, planned tourist attraction.

Bayi town to the Grand Canyon 130 kilometers, take 600, wait for an hour and a half to return, more than an hour plus one hundred dollars. April tickets 290, excluding meals 260, the peak season may rise again, there are tour buses, the morning fog rises from the canyon, the summer flow is relatively big to look good. This and Lulang Linhai are contracted by the same private owner, and the tickets are very expensive. Lulang Lin Sea and Sejra Mountain is the same road, but different from the Grand Canyon, on the opposite side of the mountain but not around. Bayi town to Basong Cuo shuttle bus 50 yuan, the driver can drive to Basong Cuo scenic area personnel to pick it up, free admission, fare 80, to the lake island stop for half an hour after play to the village to live in a family hotel.

From the base camp to the observation deck there are 4 kilometers of road, sightseeing minibus 25 yuan per person, some travel agencies will say 80 yuan, I heard it is electric, did not see. Due to the weather and the fact that tourists don't stay at base camp for a long time, only 30% of the people who can see Everest are lucky enough to not only see Everest on the first day, but also see the spectacular sunrise the next morning. ps: The back of the mountain is with the word "La", the back of the lake is with the word "cuo". Cuo and wrong are the same meaning of lake. Namtso means Heavenly Lake.

Nepal is a national religious, handicrafts are very developed, there are also a lot of marks are produced in Nepal handicrafts, the price from low to high, so the purchase need to identify and bargain, heard that some places must buy after the offer, so do not buy can not bid casually. To Nepal in camphor wood for Nepali currency is more cost-effective, such as camphor wood for 16.2, to Nepal is 14.8, and direct use of US dollars is not cost-effective. May is the beginning of the rainy season, the rainy season is not fun, will delay the trip, so the earlier the better to go to Nepal.
