Things to Do in Lhasa in May

Potala Palace, located in the city center, is a must see for all tourists to Lhasa, After that we recommend going to the Jokhang Temple and Barkhor Street nearby. Yangpachen is a good choice for those who like hot spring baths. Namtso Lake  thaws in May and is a wonderful place to watch the sunrise and sunset and to enjoy a sky full of stars at night. A nice bicycle ride can be taken along the Lhasa River. Another good spot to visit is the Ganden Monastery on the southern bank of the River.
 

Other Tips

Lhasa is not suitable for persons with hypertension, heart disease and asthma. Due to its high altitude (3,650 meters, about 11,975 feet), visitors should bring altitude sickness medication and plan sufficient time to rest after arriving to beginning any activities. Sunscreen, lipstick, sunglasses, and a hat are essential. We also recommend bringing cold medicine because of the large temperature difference between day and night.
