Others landmarks are the Potala Palace, the Dalai Lama’s former winter residence and monasteries, Norbu Lingkha ,the Dalai Lama’s summer residence and Ramoche temple . A number of important Gelukpa monasteries such as Sera and Drepung are located in areas surrounding Lhasa.
From May to October is the best time to travel, when the weather is mild. This is naturally the busiest travel time in Tibet. Lhasa is worthy of a couple of days to visit, if you have a tight schedule you may have a city tour around 2 or 3 days. If you have more time, you can spend a week to explore more for lake scenery, mountain side monasteries and short trekking around Lhasa. If you are busy enough to spend a day in Lhasa then you should visit the great Potala palace and Jokhang temple. These two historical sites are the symbol of Lhasa and Tibet.
