Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region, lies on the Lhasa Rivers north bank in a valley of the Himalaya Mountains. Rising atop Red Mountain at an altitude of 3,700m, the red-and-white Potala Palace once served as the winter home of the Dalai Lama. The palace’s rooms, numbering nearly 1,000, include the Dalai Lama’s living quarters, murals, chapels and tombs. Potala Palace is a UNESCO world heritage site and features an overwhelming array of intricate murals, temples, stupas, tombs of eight past Dalai Lamas, exquisite Tibetan Mandalas and other relics of Tibetan history. Lhasa, also known as ‘Sunlight City’, is regarded as the heart and soul of Tibet and hence is the most popular  tourist destination in Tibet.
