Situated at 3700m in a wide, mountain-fringed valley on the north bank of the Kyichu River, LHASA (Ground of the Gods), the sprawling, rapidly expanding capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) is a modern Chinese city with a population of around 200,000. The Chinese population of Lhasa is highly active economically, with two Chinese businesses to every Tibetan one, a ratio that reflects the city's population. There are plenty of sights in and around Lhasa to keep most visitors occupied for at least a week: the Potala, Jokhang and Barkhor district are not to be missed.
