The Potala Palace is a stunningly beautiful palace nested right on top of the Lhasa hillock. Apparently Dalai Lama used to live while he was in Tibet.

There are security cameras every where, it's disconcerting. We visited the 2nd day of our trip so we had acclimatized more, but very steep ascent and steps inside can be steep. Only a tiny part of the Palace is open to the public.

Incredible place. So beautiful and rich in history. Be prepared for a queue upon entry, however it moves pretty quick. Our guide booked our tickets and you are given a set time to visit. A must do in Lhasa!
