Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet 10 Featured Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace, Lhasa Print

Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet 10

Lhasa, Tibet - October 2006
This is the imposing Palace of the 14th Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, who fled to exile in India after the Chinese invasion and annexation of the country in 1959. These seemingly endless steps look almost abstract, don't they? With altitude sickness and at 3656m altitude, walking up these steps is a real killer. Seriously, don't try it unless super-fit and fully acclimatised

Three-dimensional view of the landscape of Lhasa, Tibet Featured Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace, Lhasa Print

Three-dimensional view of the landscape of Lhasa, Tibet

November 24, 2005 - With an elevation of 3, 650 meters (11, 975 feet), Lhasa, Tibet is one of the highest elevation cities in the world. The city fills a flat river valley nestled in the ranges of the Himalaya Mountains in southern China. This image provides a three-dimensional view of the landscape.
Mountains seem to radiate spoke-like from the flat plain on which the city is built. The high mountains are brown. Lhasa is red and silver in the false color image in which plant-covered land is red and man-made surfaces tend to be silver or white. The Lhasa River winds through the valley. Its wandering channels provide evidence that the ground is relatively flat, since the topography of the land isna??t forcing the rivera??s course.
Lhasa is the administrative capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region in China. Situated in the center of the Tibetan Plateau, the city has a long history of government. The Potala Palace and the Norbulingka are the most prominent features within the city in this image. The fortress-like Potala Palace complex sits on a small rise in the center of the city, forming two large white squares that are roughly the size of the city blocks visible around the complex. It is the largest single man-made surface in the image. Norbulingka, is the largest park in the image. It is the red, plant-covered rectangle west of Potala Palace. The two sites together are a World Heritage Site.
The final most notable feature in the image is the Lhalu Wetland Nature Reserve on the northern side of the city. The reserve is red-brown with black smudges where water darkens the surface
