1. It is in Lhasa.

2. As for Great Wall visit, I'm afraid there is no section at Shanghai and Nanjing. You can go from either of the cities to Beijing to have a visit. Badaling or Mutianyu Section is suggested.

The Lhasa Railway Station is not located at the city area. It is set in the Doilungdeqen County which is about 20 kilometers to the southwest of Lhasa City.
