OVERLAND JOURNEY ACROSS TIBET
April 3-11, 1998
 
 
 This photo of Everest was taken from the north tibetan side of the Himalayas.  This view was seen on our second day of our long and adventurous trip across Tibet to Lhasa.
 
This is the site of the Dalai Lama's Winter Palace located in Lhasa.  The Dalai Lama fled from Lhasa in 1959 during the cultural revolution.  He also had a summer palace located in another section of Lhasa.
