As is the capital city of Tibet, Lhasa is the most popular tourist destination in this autonomous region. Because of the average 8 hours of sunshine per day, Lhasa is reputed as "the City of Sunlight". Besides, this mysterious city is also famous for its long history of Tibetan Buddhism. As Tibet's tourism is getting more and more popular, Lhasa has also attracted an increasing number of tourists from home and abroad because of her beauty.
When you travel to Lhasa, the most important thing you should notice is the altitude sickness which may be caused by the high altitude. So do pay attention to your physical condition at all times when you travel in Tibet. If you feel uncomfortable, contact the tour guide as soon as possible, and the guide will help you handle the situation quickly.
The weather in Lhasa is mainly sunny. Because of the high altitude (located in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau), the air in Tibet is dry, and the sun and ultraviolet rays are also very strong. Therefore, tourists to Lhasa should bring with them sunblock equipment and moisturizing skin care products.
