Lhasa Trivia , Money & Weather

Trivia: Lhasa lies at an altitude of 3.490 meters above sea level (11.450 feet). It is on of the highest cities in the world. Lhasa, the remote abode of the Dalai Lamas, object of devout pilgrimage and heart and soul of Tibet, is still a city of wonders, despite the large-scale encroachments of modern Chinese influence. Your first hint that Lhasa is close is the Potala, a vast white-and-ochre fortress soaring over one of the world’s highest cities. It’s a sight that has heralded the marvels of the Holy City to travellers for close to four centuries and it still raises goose bumps.

Tibet is a part of China but it is an autonomous region.

Need to watch the movie Seven years in Tibet.

Climate: ca 7 degrees in the day and -9 during the nights in January.  Brrrrrr! Always use sunscreen and sunglasses are also recomended, especially during winter time. We do not want to get snow

Money:

  • Bank of China branch (Zhongguo Yinhang; Beijing Donglu; 9am-5pm Mon-Fri, 10.30am-3.30pm Sat & Sun) The most conveniently located bank changes cash and travellers cheques without fuss. It can’t give a cash advance on a credit card but the ATMs normally work. It’s between the Banak Shol and Kirey hotels.
  • Bank of China branch (Zhongguo Yinhang; Beijing Xilu; 9am-5pm Mon-Fri, 10.30am-3.30pm Sat & Sun) Opposite the Lhasa Hotel.
  • Bank of China main office (Zhongguo Yinhang; Linkuo Xilu; 9am-6.30pm Mon-Fri, 10am-4pm Sat & Sun) West of the Potala. This is the place for credit-card advances; there’s a 3% commission and the maximum withdrawal is Y2000 per transaction. This is also the place to arrange a bank transfer. There are ATMs inside and outside the building (the latter open 24 hours). Take a number as you walk in the door and expect to wait for ages.
