We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Barkhor Street is circular, as if a giant clock, the splendid Jokhang Temple is the bell axis. It is not in the shape of naming streets, but the transliteration of the Tibetan "Barkhor", meaning a street around the Jokhang Temple (built in the mid-seventh century).

Many Buddhist devotees moved around the Jokhang Temple to live there, the street gradually emerged a large number of houses, shops, hotels, handicraft workshop and other facilities.

The yellow-story house where Lhasa "Majiami" bar lies, according to legend, it is the place where Tsangyang Gyatso met with Majiami and wrote the famous poem "on that oriental hilltop."
