This is one of the most popular tour in Tibet, beginning from Lhasa-the historic capital of Tibet, the golden sunshine and blue sky are the dreams of many travellers all over the world. It is also the pilgrimage destination of all Tibetans, mingling with local pilgrims around the Barkhor Street is an extraordinary feeling.
