Lhasa, Tibet’s capital, stands on one of the world’s highest plateaus. Once a “forbidden city,” this Himalayan outpost still maintains its mystical atmosphere. This is the hub of Tibetan Buddhism, so be sure to enter its temples and shrines. Sprawling Potala Palace, with its hundreds of rooms, was built as the Dalai Lama’s winter residence and served as Tibet’s government seat for more than three centuries. Don’t miss Sera Monastery, where Buddhist monks hold lively debates in the courtyard.
