Tibetan food is extremely tasty and nutritious. Due to the influence of neighboring countries Nepal and India, tourists can easily get used to the flavor of Tibetan cuisines and western dishes are also ready available in Lhasa. Why not try tasting the famous Tibetan yak, mutton, momo, etc while drinking unique Lhasa beer.

Tour Drepung Monastery, One of the “Great Three” Gelugpa Monasteries in Lhasa

It is one of the most reputed centres for learning, contemplating and practicing Tibetan Buddhist thoughts and science. Drepung Monastery is magnificent from afar and its grand white building structure gives the appearance of a heap of rice hence given the name 'Drepung' which means 'Collecting Rice' in Tibetan. There is a long stairs leading to Thangka Buddha unfolding (esp. for Shoton Festival) platform. So you will need to do a bit of walking. Drepung Monastery is so lovely, serene and definitely worth a visit if you are in Lhasa.
