Norbulingka is my 2nd favorite monastery besides Potala Palace. It's a bit far from the city center and might be a bit hard to find a taxi willing to take you there but it's a good thing we have an experienced tour guide. She was the one who found a taxi that won't charge us over the top.
The entrance fee is 60 RMB per pax.
This place is huge and if you're not fond of walking under the sun, it's best to get a ride from the carts which cost only 10 RMB per pax. There are lots of little temples and rooms around the area with beautiful gardens. There's also a zoo which costs 10 RMB per pax. The zoo contains animals such as bears, wolf, ostrich, monkeys, birds etc. Some of the animals such as the monkeys seem well taken care off but there are some other animals which seem neglected.
