Beautiful and peaceful garden with bamboos and nice trees. Some nice temples inside. One part is under renovation and should open later. Nice for a walk if some free time in Lhasa.

Interesting but I think that we were all overdosed with seeing so many temples in Lhasa. We would have preferred a scenic tour of the area.

This parc or garden is ok but not spectacular. It houses the palace of one of the former D Lama’s which is interesting but quiet small

Take the no 8 bus from the city centre out to Norbulinga. it's essentially a large walled garden with a number of buildings within used, most recently, by the current Dalai Lama before he moved to Dharamsala. Wandering slowly you could spend 2-3 hours here, or whiz round and be out in an hour. There's a small zoo which I didn't visit.

Open wide area with flowers everywhere. Lots of things to see and most interesting with a knowledgeable tour guide. Many room of the summer palace are open and can be visited.

Pretty and flat, so good for getting used to the altitude. Some interesting things to see inside the palace buildings.

This site and park area would have been much better to see once the trees and flowers started to show their beauty. The area was somewhat interesting but definitely lacked the true beauty late Spring would have added to the area.

I greatly enjoyed the Dalai Lama's summer palace. The water, flowers and buildings were restful and beautiful.

The "palace" in the centre looked underwhelming but was a very interesting and historical building as the Dali Lama lived here for 3 years before his exile.
The gardens are a modest size but beautiful - I also had the bonus of three young ladies walking there dressed in colourful indigenous dresses.
Historical and lovely. A must-see experience.
