I was unsure if I would actually make it to Tibet - I got word that I (along with my small group) would be allowed into Tibet just one day prior. Once inside Tibet, my guide took care of all of my paperwork to enter the Potala Palace. The 300+ steps I had to climb to access the palace was intense. With 13 floors and more than 1,000 rooms, this is simply an awesome feat of human engineering especially considering construction began in the 7th century and lasted 10 centuries. The interior is surreal. The large stupas (over 20 feet high, covered in tens of thousands of kilos of gold and precious stones) are incredible. There is so much to see/absorb here, it would take days, if not weeks to truly take it all in.
