Lhasa

Lhasa is the capital city of the Tibet Autonomous Region. An ancient historical and cultural city, Lhasa has a history of more than 1,300 years.  The city is home to more than 30 ethnic groups, including Tibetan, Han, Hui, and others. About 87 percent of the people in Lhasa are of Tibetan heritage. 

In the Tibetan language, Lhasa means “Holy Land”. Because of its surplus sunshine, it is also known as the “Sunshine City”. Historical sites such as the internationally renowned Potala Palace, give visitors insight into Lhasa’s religiously sacred atmosphere and its strong Tibetan values and culture.
