Barkhor Street Pictures

The most prosperous commercial center of Lhasa should be the time-honored Barkhor Street around the Jokhanf Temple. Every day, there are so many travelers and locals assembling in these Tibet houses with white walls and red roofs.

Barkhor Street is located in the center of Lhasa's old block where the original flavor of these Tibetan buildings and the local life style are well-preserved. The history of this place can be traced back to the 6th century, when the Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo built the Jokhang Temple, then a subsidiary street appeare around it, namely the current Barkhor Street.

You could only apply for this permit in China unless you participate in a tour group in USA. Yes, you could get this permit from an international travel agency in Kunming;however, you should participate in a tour group. It will take you about 3 days to get the permit. As for the details, please refer to: https://www.travelchinaguide.com/essential/tibet/

Hello, I am an American teaching English in Shandong and want to travel to Tibet. I have a one year visa and am told I can go anywhere in China... I would like to travel to and tour Lhasa during the Spring Holiday (February 2010). IS anyone else going at that time? I'd enjoy the English conversations along the way and it would be great to have someone speaking Mandarin... even with other languages spoken in Tibet... Let me know... Ray

You can find vehicles in Nepal's Consolate in Lhasa, they will get to Zhangmu, through which you can get to Kathmandu. There are direct buses from Lhasa to kathmandu. The expense is about 600rmb. You just need to show your passport.
