Potala Palace Reviews
A must visit place while in Tibet. Palace is very picturesque and a place for take a morning stroll. We spent the whole morning taking pictures and admire the blue sky. more »
世界遺産ポタラ宮の風景に感動しました。高山病にかかると感動が半減しますので、とにかく体調を優先しましょう。 規模が大きいので、観光の際には結構歩くと思います。今回は、前面の展望台→ポタラ宮前広場→ポタラ宮の順番。 セキュリティチェックを終え、宮殿入口を通過した内部は、花の飾りなど綺麗に整備されており、青い空と相まって感動が続きます。 天候次第ですが、晴れていると外の階段部分は辛いですが、途中から建... more »I was impressed by the scenery of the World Heritage Potala Palace. When you get altitude sickness, your impression is halved, so let's give priority to your physical condition. Because the scale is large, I think that I walk considerably when sightseeing. This time, the front observation deck → Potala Miyamae Square → The order of Potara Palace. After the security check, the interior of the palace entrance is beautifully maintained, such as flower decorations, and the impression continues because it is combined with the blue sky. It depends on the weather, but when it is sunny, the outside stairs are hard, but it becomes easy because it becomes the stairs inside the building on the way. Anyway, let's climb slowly at my own pace. Photography is prohibited inside. It took nearly two hours to get to the exit, with many attractions, including the tomb of the Dalai Lama and mandala made of gold and jewels. In addition, the light-up at night is also worth seeing, but because the sunset time is slow, it seems to be just right around 21 o'clock in summer. The fountain in the square is also quite high, and it is a photograph spot.
This place is really cool. No trip to Tibet would be complete without a visit. I spent an entire day walking around it, photographing it during the day and night. And another morning visiting the inside with my guided tour. It's best if your tour group can get there as early as possible. We were literally the first group in the door, and were able to see the palace and get a bunch of pictures with no crowds.
A must see sightseeing when in Lhasa Tibet. Everything is real, you can feel that you can touch the history when you come inside. When enter the main palace, time is limited at 1 hour so it is recommended to go fast and all questions can leave behind. Some restrictions to remember: no water, passport needed, ticket (of course), no photos, AM visiting is better than afternoon time.
