The quality of the light is superb!

Thanks for sharing.

How did you get there? By air? Do you have problem breathing? in that thin air?

Lhasa have the name called "sunlight city" & the sun rise 7.30am till 8pm, 3000++ hours annually. so dont worry abt the light, but in side the temple may have some problem coz all the temple inside very dark. I guess Pro CPL will help a lot, I just have normal Hoya CPL and with Tamron 17-50, If have 18-200 will be idea.

I fly to Beijing & from Beijing to Lhasa by Train, the new railway sceneries was superb but will take u 48hours (4900KM) & I have altitude sickness before reaching, but due to the train have oxygen provided so i didnt realize till i reaching Lhasa & due to i m more serious & i decide to visit doctor on the 2nd days & after that getting better & better. Others of my group have some altitude reaction but not so serious. That was noting to do with ur fitness coz every body will react diff-ly and noting to worried you can easily buy oxygen other that place.

1.) I actually dont know him, just happen i m there at the moment & feel that was nice & just snap.

2) Beijing - Lhasa RMB800/way hard bed, due to tickets only will sell on your departure station & only open to sell 10 days before departure date so I not manage to buy return ticket. I got my Beijing -Tibet from my friend from China & got my return ticket by myself after arrive Lhasa. You can get teh ticket via travel agent but they will added surcharge.

3) Thanks ya. glad that u enjoy it.
