Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) June 11, 2014

Most tourists are far more interested in visiting well-known destinations, but severe travelers are usually prepared to feel the historical, social and cultural life, stated Kunga, a popular Tibetan tour guide of Tibet Vista Tour, a skilled agency on Tibet Travel, So I would like to recommend some unique and really uncommon areas. They are least-visited, but offer you a genuine taste of local culture and life.

1. Sweet Tea Houses

&#13

In Lhasa, sweet tea homes are everywhere, serving sweet tea, butter tea and Tibetan noodle. They are common locations for locals to kill time. Sweet tea is to Tibetans what coffee is to westerners. It is a refresher to wake up for the day. No morning can happily pass and no lunch is dainty with out it. Every morning, tea homes are warming up with the arrival of locals and travelers in pairs or groups. Sharing a bench with locals, ordering a large thermos of tea and a bowl of Tibetan noodles, one will get a accurate native knowledge. It is regarded as the need to do plan of a Lhasa tour

2. Nechung Monastery

&#13

The monastery, just a couple of minutes’ walk down the hill from Drepung Monastery, is a spot for fantastic masters to teach and for students to practice the teachings by way of contemplation and meditation. Established in 1973 by the Venerable Nechung Rinpoche, it is regarded as the seat of Nechung in Tibets history. For this reason, the imagery painted on the walls is normally fierce and bloody (flayed human skins and souls in torment). Guests are allowed to take images freely in the monastery.

3. Shugsheb Nunnery

&#13

Sitting in a huge basin, the nunnery is the biggest in Tibet. It is about 65km to the south of Lhasa, housing more than 280 nuns. It is a favourite for trekkers and any individual who likes to get off the beaten track. It is a 45-minute hike to the village-like nunnery. Climbing to up the hill behind the nunnery, one particular can have a magnificent view of the Kyi-chu Valley, the snowcapped prime of Nojin Kangtsang (7,191m) and other Himalayan peaks.

4. Seling-Tso Lake

&#13

Seling-tso lies at an altitude of four,530 meters. It stretches approximately 72 kilometers from the east to the west, and 22.eight kilometers from the south to the north. Spanning more than an area of 1,640 square kilometers, the lake is the second largest in Tibet, subsequent to Namtso. It is a paradise for wild animals. You would locate a massive variety of uncommon species, like black-necked crane, snow leopard, chiru, argali, kiang, and Tibetan snow-cock,

5. Mindroling Monastery

&#13

It was founded in 1676 on the south side of Yarlung Tsangpo River, roughly 43 kilometers east of the Lhasa airport. For centuries, its monastic university has trained Nyingma scholars and yogis from all more than Tibet. Unique emphasis is placed on the studying of Buddhist scriptures, astronomy, Tibetan lunar calendar, calligraphy, rhetoric, and standard Tibetan medicine. On the wall of its main hall are a lot of paintings of Buddha with ferocious faces and additional heads and arms. According to Tibetan Buddhism, those malevolent-hunting deities are guardians of the temple against enemies and evils. Far more interestingly, the monks in the monastery are permitted to get married. The succession of the patriarch is restricted to father to son or father-in-law to son-in-law.
