Potala Palace, Tibet

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Flying into Tibet after having traveled over lush, mountainous areas of Western China was a shock. The barren grey landscape can be foreboding and makes for an interesting first impression.
A day trip to 17,500 feet took us past villages where yaks plowed the rocky landscape, and because nothing much grows at such an altitude, it seemed a lot of work with the little return. The oxygen pillows provided us were meant to be sucked on when anyone started feeling lightheaded, but we were naive to think inhaling a small amount of oxygen would make much of a difference.
