The sightseeing on the Royal Enfield around  majestic Potala Palace, wondering around typical Tibetan locality Barkhor square and the visits to tranquil Norbulingka, Deprung  and Sera Monasteries keeps you absolute busy  in Lasha  before hitting the Friendship highway.

The highway itself starts from Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet or say Roof of the World.  The 1000 km long Friendship Highway, from Lhasa to Kathmandu, goes through  4  passes over 5000m+ starting along the Lasha River.
