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.

Sera Temple

Sera Temple(色拉寺) is located in the northern suburb of Lhasa. It is one of the three major monasteries in Lhasa and the second largest of the Tibetan monasteries. The temple buildings are Tibetan style and the temple hall is very ambitious and magnificent. Within the temple, there are dedicated to a lot of statues, but also a large quantity of classics, fine thangka, Duixiu, murals and other valuable art treasures. As a result, it is a good choice to make a formal visit there or just go traveling there.

Sera's debate has been known in Tibetan areas and it is also a focus to come to visit Sera Temple. The ceremony of Sera's debate is held in the north debate field of the temple. The debate usually starts at three p.m. and ends at five p.m. However, on Sundays and special occasions, there is no debate. The monks tend to sit on the floor and another one is stand on the opposite with exaggerated debate scripture action which looks very interesting.

The back of Sera Mountain has a high altitude where you can watch the panoramic of Lhasa on the top of the mountain. It is really a resort for mountain-lovers. The relative height of the mountain is about 500 meters, climbing it will take about four hours, requires a certain physical strength. Visitors who are in poor physical strength or easy to get altitude stress are not recommend to climb to the summit.

The entire circumference of Sera Temple is about 1.5 km. The layout of Sera Temple is that the Cuoqin hall is in the center and numerous buildings are scattered around the major hall. Different from mainland Chinese Buddhist architecture, Sera is not axial symmetrical layout, but scattered in the mountains.
