Lhasa


Located at the foot of Mount Gephel, at an elevation of 11,975 (3,650 meters), Lhasa (sometimes spelled "Llasa") is the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region in the People's Republic of China. The city has a population of approximately 255,000 people.

Translated literally "Lhasa" means "place of the gods", and the city is the traditional seat of the Dalai Lama, as well as being regarded in Tibetan Buddhism as the holiest site within Tibet.
