Tibet Visit: 2009-2
2009-10-23 - For more than twenty years it was a long-cherished wish of mine to travel to Tibet.
For several personal reasons it didn't worked out....until Februar 2009!
It seemed to be the perfect timing and i just did it!I bought a plane ticket to Chengdu jumped on the Lhasa train the same day i arrived and was on my way to Tibet.
I shared a six bed cabin with a nice chinese family and i was the only european guy in the train.
Nobody spoke english but everbody was quite nice to me. After 45 hours and 3.350km i finally arrived in Lhasa in the late afternoon.
The first night i spent in the tibetian quarter and i will never forget the next morning when i finally stood in front of the amazing Potala palace.
I immediatley got goosebumbs when i saw this breathtaking massive building on the hill which i knew so well from many photographs i looked at in the past.
Of course i had to go all the way up which was quite a challenge because i still was not well prepared with the altitude.
