The heart and soul of Tibet, Lhasa is the capital city on the roof of the world. A modern city on first appearance, but at its core you'll step back into a world where pilgrims make their way around the Barkor Circuit to the fascinating Jokhang Temple, locals dress in traditional costume and old prayer wheels creak as they spin.
