Today we finally arrived in Lhasa. Only approximately 19 hours later than scheduled – new record for me in regards to flight delays, hope this one stands forever. On the maps below you can see the distance between Lhasa and Chengdu in relation to Kathmandu!

We left the hotel at 5am in the morning (only like 2-3 hours of sleep) – so we were quite exhausted that day.

But hey! Finally in Lhasa and starting acclimatizing on 3650m!


The first impression is: This is no different to the rest of China! Don’t really „feel“ Tibet. Bit of a shame…

But a nice City anyways. We checked in to our hotel – tried to get local SIM cards (not successful) and went to bed early after dinner.
