Hi all

Really, you have created a nice site about Tibet Tourism. The Potala Palace is a beautiful and remarkable attraction that serves as the official home of the Dalai Lama. While Potala Palace houses amazing Tibetan treasures, much of this spectacular building is closed to the general public. Even with so much of it closed off, many tourists still flock to this destination every year. Thanks for sharing this type of nice information.
