Mind-blowing pictures of everyday life in a rooftop city in Tibet

Tibet is an autonomous region of China known for its splendid landscapes, ancient architecture and diverse Buddhist culture. Its capital, Lhasa, is one of the highest cities on the planet – and one of the most breathtaking destinations.

"Lhasa" was first recorded as the name of this place in a treaty drawn up between China and Tibet in 822 C.E. It means Place of Gods. Lhasa is located at an altitude of 3,600 m (11,800 ft).

400,000 people live here, the majority of them are Tibetans. Many culturally significant Tibetan Buddhist sites are located in Lhasa, such as the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple and Norbulingka Palaces.

Did you like the pictures? Would you like to visit Lhasa one day?

This isn't China it IS Tibet - invaded and irreparably damaged by the Chinese who have gone all out to destroy an ancient and peaceful way of life!

Must be a beautiful city for peace and quiet, but with the possibly of an invasion by the Chinese government, I wouldn't want to live or visit it.

Tibet is a beautiful country. Until the Chinese annexed it by force it was an independent country. They follow Buddhism. The Dalai Lama now lives in India
