The mountain is opposite the Potala Palace, the symbol of Tibet. It's best known for its ideal location for tourists to take pcitures of the Palace. The platform opens from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., almost full of tourists all the time. To get the best shot, you'd better go there around the sunrise, sunset or after it gets dark. Make sure you have plenty of time to take pics, since you might have to wait for a long time to get a good spot. Take out your tripod if possible. The entrance fee is 2 RMB.
As more and more tall buildings have been built in Lhasa recently, there are few spots left in the city that have a good view of the Palace, which makes the Mountain even more popular. However, you can also go to Longwangtan Park (龙王潭公园)nearby, where you can see the Palace together with its reflection in the water (even better!).

The temple was located a bit remote from the neighbouring cities and though it was very tough for me physically to reach there, but I felt that the beauty of the blend of natural and artificial creations was retained due to less vulnerability to disasters and human influence.

We were there on July 9th and got very lucky. The weather was clear and we saw the Everest. However next morning when we woke up the clouds were pretty heavy. So it is a pure luck. It is quite possible that you come there and see nothing.
There were another disappointment. We wanted to go hiking but we were told that the military guys didn't allow that and we had to go to the base camp by bus. Basically, we got no chance to walk around. The tour guide warned us that If we hiked, they would fire guns at us! So ridiculous! He explained that it was because many Tibetans try to cross the border with Nepal and they had to protect the the border.
We were very sad because the site was so beautiful and we definitely felt like hiking.

Next time I think I will go to Nepal where there are less restrictions.

Another great stop in Lhasa, offering another great photo perspective of Potala and Lhasa proper. If you have time its a nice stop.

in your picture, that mountain is Mt kailash not Yaowang mountain. but it's very true that Yaowang mountain (medicine hill) beside the potala palace is the ideal place for tourist to take picture of Potala palace and main street of lhasa.
