Potala Palace | Lhasa, China | Wendy Wu Tours

The Potala Palace, towering above the city atop Marpo Ri, will be one of the most extraordinary sights of your visit to Lhasa. The enduring symbol of Tibet, the colossal landmark was the seat of the Tibetan government and home of the 5th to 14th Dalai Lamas. Today, though it is considered a shell of its former magnificence, the Potala, and its rich tapestry of history, is still astounding.

The fortress like building climbs 13 stories and houses over 1000 rooms; most of these are not open to the public, but those that are filled with treasures. Join the groups of awe-struck Tibetans who you'll find wandering from room to room and leaving offerings in the chapels and before statues. Visit the private apartments of the 13th and 14th Dalai Lamas to get a glimpse of what life was like in the palace, whilst the views from the rooftop are unsurpassed.
